[1.181.0] Ion thrusters still glow while ship is powered down or toggled off

    Hiyo, I noticed a strange graphical issue with ion thrusters; They keep glowing on ships that have been powered off (e.g. by pressing "Y") or when the ion thrusters themselves are set to their "off" state.

    This seems to happen with all sizes of ion thrusters, both on large- and small grids.


    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Get in a ship that have ion thrusters.
    2.1. Press the "Y" button
    2.2. Or toggle any / all ion thrusters off.
    2.3. Or Manually turn off or break / destroy energy sources.
    2.4. Or let fuel / remaining battery life expire.

    Turns out ships that had their thrusters disabled BEFORE the 1.181.0 update don't seem to have this issue.

    Can confirm with Hydrogen thrusters as well. Did not test it properly, but in many cases after turning them off effects/lightning are still active.
    Started today after patch.

    Same problem here. I am getting tired of updates that optimizes 1 thing and creates 10 bugs/issues every time

    I can second this for Ion Thrusters (haven't tested the others yet)
    You have to quicksave and reload the game after turning off the thrusters.
