Make the nights lighter#4

Moonlight should illuminate the world and allow people to see in the dark at night.

i mean they hit everything else with realism kinda, but the night is nothing like it is in realife. Just pitchblack.

Since it’s impossible to properly darken the night for all players equally, I’ve switched my position from having realistic dark nights to having nights be lighter, or at least have playable visibility in. Attempting to hack around all the various gamma and color correction tricks only makes it so a small subset of try hards that “cheat” can walk around night with a massive advantage, causing everyone to have the perception it’s even more unsafe to go out at night due to these types of “cheats.” This is why everyone hates nights, and stays in base. Not because its dark and they can’t get anything done (they can), but because they know lurking about is some 13 year old sweaty nerd with his AMD control panel open looking for chumps.

Please. Nighttime just kills the server for 14 minutes while everyone sits in their base waiting for morning.

My suggested fix for this would be to limit player view range at night with something like fog. You can see 10 meters out just fine then just a wall of fog. Carrying a torch extends this distance but the torch can be seen through the fog. Flashlights create a cone in front for however far distance would be balanced but again everyone else can see the flashlight.

Flashlights should just get a big fix, that would make nights alot more enjoyable already

I like the idea of brighter nights, but also consider keeping it so that every few night cycles, we get one very dark night. This way people who need to run a long distance, move loot, etc can strategically do so.

Moonlit nights are the perfect amount of dark most of the time IMO but you know what happens if this is how nights are all the time. People fuck with their display settings so you might as well just remove nights then. I also like some pitch black to do sneaky shit.

They’re delusional and haven’t been killed enough just because they are facing the direction of the sky so they can be seen. I think that is the part I hate about it tbf the fact that if you were going up a hill or something then people could see your silhouette if they are behind you but you are completely blind to them. Also there is no incentive to go out at night it’s just harder to farm and you have a higher chance of being killed in a unfair way. If there was a actual reason to go out besides trying to hide from people which let’s face it once you are probably started you don’t need to.

Night time is for crafting, organizing boxes, running loot, cooking, making plays as a solo, outpost runs, finding active bases, hiding loot in stashes, ect ect. If you just sit in your base at night afk, you’re doing it wrong. There is plenty of things to do in a pitch black night especially with a weapon flash light. Stop crying about the nights being too dark. There are nights that are lighter with moon light and most are super dark but if you live in the country where there are no street or city lights then you know it gets dark enough to hide your hand in front of your face without a full moon. Just go play pvp servers if all you want to do is try to Chad in daylight all the time.
