Night is too bright, I messed up my graphics


45 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I don't know what I did, but before at nighttime it was always superdark. That was okay because there were lanterns in the game and I would buy them all roleplay style.

BUT NOW I CANT STOP SEEING LIGHT EVERYWHERE.

I was decorating my house and there were no lights inside, suddenly I can see in the dark and I dont know where I am suppose to put lanterns.

Did I do something to my graphics? Please help, this is really messing with immersion. It use to be so spooky fighting scarecrows. I especially loved the times when it was so dark my tamer would only appear in the blue flashes of their form during attacks.

Has anyone else experienced this? How do I fix it?

Yeah the night in closed beta 2 was pretty dark. Dark enough to where you needed a lantern, nights in closed beta 1 were even darker and before that it was even darker. I absolutely HATE that the night time is literally just a cloudy day. I wish they hadn't changed this. I just noticed it today also, thinking that all the other nights that I went through were just cloudy days. IMO it was MUCH better before, but of course the casual players complaining about how dark it was won and took out one of the most unique features of the game.

Its planetside 2 all over again. Why do devs think players cant handle a little bit of darkness?

 

can we get some screenshots to see how it looks now? is there a way to revert it playing with the graphics settings?

That's honestly a huge turn-off if they got rid of the dark nights. >.<

I usually am very supportive in this forum but, i really hope that this "bright night" thing is a mistake, i love the dark night idea.

I am ready to give some serious shit storm if we don't get it back.

Its literally just like a cloudy day. Thats all. I can't believe more people aren't angry about this.

I really would love to have the darkness back, world bosses seem much more fun in the darkness of night.

If you turn off other player lanterns it will remove that extra light also try turn down your lighting or gama

I really hope this is a mistake and not just Daum listening to the cry babies all over again.

So tired of seeing nice feature being remove or simplify because of a few that have no clue how to adapt themselves to anything in life.

What I learned in CB2 is that you can tweek around with the settings and even change the tone of the game. The tone being you can set the Photonics scenes even to a type of grey scale if you want. This will have an effect on the night time too so you may want to give it a shot until you find something that suits your style.

I read something about moon cycles affecting the night time aswell. I think its best we first confirm if Night has been changed by Daum.

I have other lanterns off. I haven't gone back and changed my gamma but the nights are just insanely bright now. There is literally no reason for the lantern anymore. Or any other lighting in the game for that matter.

There is no way that the night hasn't been changed. Even if the moon DOES cycle from new moon to waxing and everything the night time shouldn't be as bright as it has been. Doesn't make any sense.

What the hell were their complaints!??!?! Its night so its dark? How does this interfere with them at all? We have lanterns in the game for a reason.

Funny thing, one of the most asked questions in general channel was about how players thought it was too dark. When I told them to use a lantern, they responded with a "We have a lantern?". The players that do not pay attention or check their inventory aka the lowest denominator is the reason why alot of stuff gets nerfed or removed in mmorpgs.

I hope the night isnt dark, because of a ingame issue and not Daum listening to complainers and changing it.

Thunderstorm & Lanterns

The thunderstorm feature that we tested during CBT1 has now been permanently added. It will occur up to 3 times per day on a regional scale. As the night will turn almost pitch black (see below), you should lookout for NPCs that offer you a lantern. The lantern effect has also been fixed and allows now to see further than before.

Additionally, as requested, we have disabled other player’s lantern effect by default. You can find it under the Screen settings to turn it back on, along with many other features.

Dark nights are still here, but don't happen all the time.
