The jittery-zoom visual effects of taking damage makes me nauseous. I mean that literally. The weird yellow glow effect like a nuke went off in the distance is almost as bad though I'm nto sure what triggers it. TBH neither feel like meaningful additions to the gamer. Sorry, guys. :/

It would be helpful if we can turned it on and off at the settings.
@Sdarks was saying on Discord that they were meaning to have an option for the new (tech taking damage) effects. But to be honest, I would be surprised if anyone will want this screen shake enabled. Not sure if it's just that which is affecting, or the chromatic aberration, too...

This isn't to knock Mei Lan's work - it seems well executed.:) But my head still feels kind of wrong typing this now, after just ~10 seconds of exposure.o_O I feel like I would be getting a bad migraine with much more than that.:eek: So literally unplayable, sorry.

I could start a poll thread to ask if anyone would like to keep it...?

Since these effects became popular in the 2000's(starting with Crysis, maybe?), my regular routine when I install a new game is to go and turn off motionblur, camera shake, and all that lol Not that they look too bad or anything, but nah...

it wouldnt be so bad if the effect wasnt just straight up in your face, something that you need to pay attension to see. Just a slight little tiny red glow at the edges of the screen would do

As ZeroG mentions, we will most likely add the option to disable the camera shake.

As for the other suggestions of only having the effect when taking damage from enemy techs, I actually agree. I'll see what we can do about it.
