I know of them and like them. Nomads units use a lot of blinking lights. The game has some visual details that you don't see zoomed out (tire treads, dust kicked up, wakes, projectile effects, some examples). As a game from 2007 it doesn't look great in 2022 but I appreciate the details it does have.
For removing things from the game I suggest you make a mod like Azroc did to remove BlinkingLights from blueprints.
