You can do that if you make night vision an implant, or some sort of weapon sight. This makes night vision a drawback as it prevent you from taking something else. Do you take nightvision over darklight, allowing you to see enemy soldier easier, but making cloakers impossible to see? Do you take a nightvision scope over a red dot sight, forcing you to always have a 4/8/12/whatever zoom?

Nightvision doesn't have to be something that is default to every soldier, that they can turn on at the flick of a button with no downsides.

NIGHT-VISION as an Implant sounds good. I like both Boris' & Psychos input.

Night vision should NOT be required, but it could be another Implant PS2 would do well to add in. If a Gen is blown at night, would it not be pitch-black indoors ? I think yes.....it SHOULD be.

In this instance - such a thing as Night Vision Implant could be nice. Also (at night), when rainy or cloudy, in a rock cropping, dense forest or other cover, on the "shady" side of a canyon (on a Moon Lit night),.....

I never understood the appeal of a night-time you can see in. That's not night, that's dusk...An atmosphere alteration as opposed to a game-play alteration.

I know there'll be people who'll hate proper nights, but it's been said that nights would also need to be long enough for it to be worth planning for, hence if there were also sufficiently long sunsets/dusks, it'd give people an hour or two to prepare to join the battle on another continent, or even try and wrap up the fight before things go dark.

Re: Two Questions of "Day and Night"

UNTIL I see and experience it for myself, I can't say I won't or couldn't learn to like fighting in very dark conditions. If 75%-95% of the world zerg tends to avoid DARK night conditions, then we can expect the BIG battles to happen on continents that have the majority of daylight hours ahead of them.

DARK nightime fighting might become like cave fighting.....for the few dedicated lovers of a different environment.

I don't know enough about the myriad of challenges it will offer the player. Nor do I know what SOE may add in the ammo, weapon, or cert trees to help make NIGHT battles an entirely new and perhaps as equally an addicting part of PS2 as the huge battles PS1 sometimes gave us.

Good luck getting the facility to pass inspection with no emergency lighting. :P

It is impossible to see anything in that picture. The only thing that would do is necessitate a night vision mechanic, which then does nothing but turn the game into a crappy green color.

Or everyone would pump gamma and contrast.

I could agree with this:


Especially if you could get flares for grenade launchers(and perhaps engineers could set up flare launchers)

I was wondering if anyone would bust me on that....maybe the emergency backup lighting would be only 25% of normal. Or,.....nevermind....

I was just looking at some kickass day/night cycle work this morning, in fact. It was pretty dark at night and the purple and yellow tracers sporadically illuminating the world was pretty slick.
