It's obnoxious that every third player seems to have some dumb blue/red/green whatever — yadda yadda — color trailing behind their projectiles and it makes it hard to tell if someone is shooting HE/AP/SAP at you. Please add an option for other players to turn them off so we can position our ships accordingly like the original tracers are intended.

Pretty sure it’s in the modpack. You can make it so anime girls kick you instead of shells. Also you can make everyone’s tracers look like rainbows 🌈  since you seem to like color.

In Aslain's mod pack? That'll be my next download. It's nice because you can turn off all the fantasy ship nonsense but it would be nice if they added an option to remove colored tracers as well.

I mean the official one you can find here in forum. From what i gathered it is easier to update than aslans but i think his has everything in wg’s pack and more.

What about getting rid of the space perma-camos whose "smoke" isn't smoke at all and is hellishly difficult to judge in the same way that you'd judge normal smoke stack smoke?

There's a way to turn off all the silly space camos and stuff. You'll see a gear icon in the lower right port screen. I highly recommend it.

legendary captains have coloured shots too... not sure you can disable those without a mod pack

Thats very simple, click on the tracer icon under captain skills and disable. Same for the pennant and fireworks.

this is commonplace so that the enemy is unaware of your buffs and can thus not target you for having them or prohibiting them.

so that checkbox turns it off for my opponents?  and not me? the op is complaining about the colours being used by others.  how do i turn off the coloured tracers that another player's legendary captain is using without a mod?

The option turns off your captain. I didnt get you wanted theirs turned off. But i think the modpack mods can do that, at least they can change the tracer styles/colors.

it was the op complaining about people using coloured tracers.  The default game with the legendary captains i think would need to mod tracers so you didn't have to see  them i think.  not that i have tested it...

those will be the only coloured tracers the op is likely seeing apart from maybe some of the fancy skinned ships... i dunno about that one.
