I'm not sure if this is a shader effect or what. I came across a derelict, and nudged up against it to see what happened. Drained the fuel. Nudge, bang! Scrape, bang, bang, bang.
Then most of the ship went transparent. Image on box: https://app.box.com/s/7u1tu14xl235flj7qiy29f9y7a80lcse
My guess is that some part of my ship is inside the collision radius of the derelict (it's a cobra 3, IIRC), and I'm looking outwards.
Odd. Don't know if it's "wrong", but that some walls are plotting, and others aren't, I suspect it's not intended.
