Even an unlit fireplace?

I've seen this happening with lit chemlights, they shine but everything around goes dark.

Yes, even unlit.

You say unlit but this bug happens often to myself and so far it was caused only by used fire places kit i did carry in my bag. It hasnt happend to me yet with a brand new fireplace kit.

When you take this used fireplace kit from your bag and put it on ground, it looks like its already alight and will create darkness all around you unless you look at it from the right angle wich is so far always the opposite side.

When i have deployed the fireplacekit in a restrain area, in ex: the kitchen in brown round wood house, there was no where to place myself to get out of darkness

I swear I just made this fireplace kit. I did not light it. I'll make a new video to prove it if you like.

im not saying i dont believe you, im just trying to add my experience related to the same bug.
