Nigh vision goggles#2766

The user’s goggles would be visibly glowing green when in operation, and would only be able to operate at a short range. Non-researchable or repairable, and very rare.

How many times does this need to be suggested and downvoted and explained why it’s getting downvoted? Search before suggesting please. It’s been suggested like 9 times already.

@G dude when I put “night vision goggles” while filling out the title, noother threads came up.

@Jack Actually, what he was reffering to was the conversation of how Moonlight should reflect on most surfaces in Rust, but, the develepors purposely want to make the game more difficult so they kept it the way it was and rejected any form of bypass to the night (Even Night Vision Goggles) unless you want to be targeted easily yourself. The night is meant to be downtime (relaxation) to players, not more hastle.

Now Night Vision Goggles wouldn’t be bad per say, but it needs to be more thought out. I think Night Vision Goggles should be only a findable and researchable object at places like Airfield, etc. And should need to be constantly refilled with some sort of batery-like material to re-fuel it. I think it would make you possibly sound as if you are using a motor around you at the cost of being able to see in the night. But if that’s to much of a negative you could possibly remove the sound.

@Matthew McBrine no I wasn’t referring to that. I was referring to the dozen other “night vision goggle” suggestions. The problem with goggles, night vision or thermal, is that there’s no way to counter them. You’ll have no idea what other people are seeing. Now you either see a flashlight and know they can see or you don’t and know they see the same as you. With goggles you could have someone right next to you and you’d not know. In what way does that improve gameplay?

Or just fix night time and don’t add some stupid item that allows large groups to have yet another advantage over smaller groups and solo players. Everyone knows that night is broken but night vision goggles would just be another excuse for the devs to slack off on development.

@G actually if you were literate, you’d know that I suggested they visibly glow green (when looking at someone using them) and they only work at a short range, thus nerfing them to balance

So I have to scan the area for a tiny green glow while the guy behind the goggles can see me just fine the whole time?

yes, just like when somebody has a torch ;/

I mean as long as they’re rare and glow at night and only have a limited seeing range like real night vision goggles, I’m fine with them.
