Teleporter yellow light, and translucent tanks when near TP

re: Version 2.0
Is there any way to change the behavior near teleports? Right now I notice that if my tank is near a teleport I can no longer see because the screen is bright yellow. Also, if a tank is sitting ON a teleport, it is nearly invisible. I'd like a way to change this behavior for my server. This behavior is new since 1.10.8.

Is there such an option?

scorch if you can't add anything positive then don't post.

No that color is part of the game, the idea is so you can't see what your porting into and to hide the visual "jump" that would happen on a port.

The behavior is not new, actually. Someone broke it right before 1.10.4 was released, and noone had bothered fixing it until after the start of the 1.11 cycle, so we've had three versions with the wrong behavior. Go download a copy of 1.10.2 or 1.7 and you'll see that it's the same way.

Yes, and it's most annoying if you're observer. For instance, if you're riding with a tank and there is a tele on the ground, but the player is on a platform 1000 feet above the tele, you still as observer see a yellow screen, as if you were at ground level. At least, in 1.7 through 1.10.8.
