Amarr victor Attention and for the Federation Attention and all that. Suck it Caldari and Minmatar P It's all about the money, you see

CCP, there are off buttons for ship explosions, missile effects, turret effects, etc. "Immersion" does not seem to be harmed by those. So, [u]please[/u] give us a persisting off button for the jump gate and autoscan visuals.
