Fix the night time!

19 posts in this topic

Posted

I posted a thread in general but might as well post it here in case it was (hopefully) a mistake.

 

Please fix the night time back to how it was in cbt.

Picture I took in game during the first thunder storm at night in the server I am playing on.

 

Something is not right here.

They made the nights brighter because a lot of people complained about it, I believe.

I really hope not, the dark nights were a thing that made the game unique and imo a lot more fun.

Nothing was changed to my understanding.
You'd need to compare multiple things for the screen shots like time of night, weather conditions and moon position in it's cycle.

I'm on the understanding that the darkest nights are when there is a new moon.

No, it was definitely darker.

 

Back in the first beta, you had to have a lantern equipped to even see; there were people in the global chat talking about how they had to up their gamma to max and so on in order to actually see what was around them without it. They definitely brightened it for the second beta and for launch.

No. When it had consecutive pitch dark nights they kept the moon cycle set to new moon position.

Since a new moon happens once every 29/30 days in the cycle, and there is either 3 or 4 days in game per day.
There should be 1 pitch dark night every every 7.5 or 10 days (or so) So it's possible that they start the cycle on the moon after a new moon and we didn't get the chance to see a pitch dark night because there was no new moon in the CBT2 or the head-start so far.

So give it some time and then continue/ repost the thread if there still isn't one.

Having dark nights surely isn't something that would make people quit the game.  Why can't they just let the dark nights stay in place for a couple weeks, let players get used to them that havn't seen this sort of thing in other mmos before, and see how the response evolves over time?

is this true or a full of shit speculation. No offense. Im cool if all this crappy bright nights are actually related to the cycles of the moon. Any supporting posts from Daum to back this up?

Bump. Anyone?

I agree on the night time being too bright. But the fact of the matter is that we don't know what actually happened. Are there moon phases in the game that were disabled before? Maybe they increased the brightness of the nights for some reason? I really wish we didn't have to inquire about this as I believe they should tell us about those changes as they make them, but what makes it worse is that even though both me and the OP inquired about this, no response seems to be seen from the CMs or anyone.

Yes, and I agree.

 

I loved the dark dark night!! To the best of my knowledge I have yet to see a moon cycle. Seems like every night is a full moon to me. Anyone with screenshots of crescent or gibbous moons to confirm a moon cycle, please prove me wrong.

But yeah I WANT to be apprehensive at night, especially with monsters stronger. And We NEED to have night be a bit longer too. As it is now, the moon rises to midnight then morning comes. Not realistic to me. IRL the moon actually sets when the sun rises, if it is a full moon. So we are being cheated of half of night time.

It's already plenty dark. Have any of you tried gathering at night? Virtually impossible.

Not at all, I can see everything as clear as day since release date.

People whined that it was too dark. Now people whine that it's too light. I wouldn't be angry if they decided not to make it darker this time. Stop whining, jeez.

Daum isn't here to cater to your every whim.

See, I'd be fine with this if they announced at any point that the nights are being reverted back to their Korean version after 2 betas of imersively dark nights. Its not about them doing the change (which seems to be a bug and not an intended change based on another thread) but rather about this change being made with no explanation of why it was made.

Dang I can't give anymore rep for today. I +1 your reply, though, and I agree. Daum doesn't seem like the type of company who is in the habit of announcing things - even minor - quite yet, which is unfortunate.
