"Bloom" graphical issue?

Was this 'tweaked' recently for the new explosions? Because it is completely insane in the Sphere of Influence mission -- almost everything is blooming so intensely and the glow is so massive, that almost nothing is visible at the start. Just a wall of yellows and oranges. I turned the bloom effect off, and everything returns to normal, minus the 'normal' bloom effects.

    You are not alone in this. I had to turn bloom off to even try to get through the caves on New Romulus.

    Turn bloom quality off all together period.
    Also turn off lighting 2.0.
    Both of these are located under Settings / Graphics tab for those who dont mess with settings.

    doing that is fine for now as a work-around, but does not resolve it.

    many are seeking the resolution and fix. and while i am fine without 2.0 and bloom, others may prefer it and want it back. :)
    meh

    DS9 is awful without lighting 2.0

    Yeah this is a bug and needs a look at. Bloom is extreme and can cause headaches for people not expecting a flashbang when they beam down into a cave. Sphere of influence is nigh-unplayable.
