Post Graphics Settings Issue
Upon spawning back into the game, it was unplayable. I couldn't see what was going on, and everything looked like swirlyness and weird. It took me a while to figure out how to even make my ship visible. I figure that with the way modern computers are set up that the swirly chaos I encountered on rejoining the game might be very, very off putting to new players. I feel that even if graphics start off crushed to absolute minimum so everything looks 'mega retro' or even 'pixellated and awful' the game will be more playable for people. The thing is 'bad graphics' aren't that off-putting when it comes to gaming. Playability is what matters. Just my two cents. Either that or do some sort of graphics thing where people can choose the visibilities and qualities with sliders and see a realtime demonstration of the graphics above/to the side of sliders. I dunno.

"Swirlyness and weird" is not a bug report or something people can help you on. What exactly is wrong with your SS graphics?

It's not a bug report, it's basically a statement that the game is unplayable from a graphical standpoint to people who might log in and then decide that they can't cope with the game with all the swirlyness.

Can you take some screenshots of the issue?

Very High looks inferior to High, when it comes to graphics.
