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.

Thx for keeping it so I can’t play the game half of the time unless if I have a weapons flashlight which is hella broken.

them big city boys complaining about “pitch black nights not being realistic” ^^
try going 10-15 miles out of town in the woods in the middle of the night.. it’ll probably surprise you, but you’ll realize that sometimes you can’t even see your own feet..
pitch black nights is pretty damn realistic considering rust is on a remote island with no big light sources close by

@Niklas Nielsen It really depends. If the moon is full, the night will not be dark. If the moon is a “new moon” (not in the sky) then it will be dark. Did you read original post?

night time is headache inducing on the pitch black phases of night time
