URGENT: Nightime Has Never Been More Broken, And It’s Not Due To Longevity!
New, ImmediatePublic

Description

I’ve decided to report this under the most pressing status as this inhibits playability completely. This has been an occurring issue since the December 5th update, but until now did I not fully grasp the severity of this bug. As it begins to gradually progress into nightfall, the display gets a little hazy? Remember when you used to accidentally turn to a channel that doesn’t exist on an older television, and the display would yield thousands of little black, grey, and white dots quivering across the screen? This is what you see by full nightfall and it renders visibility completly.

Steps To Reproduce

Nothing fixes this bug, I’ve already attempted, on multiple occasions, completely restarting the app, joining different servers, I’ve even tried playing on a different tv! It seems to be only a side affect of the actual nighttime experience within the gameplay, for when the inventory is opened up, the haze disappears, only to re-appear when spectating your character in the blackened surrounding. As far as I’ve tested, light sources only minimally reduce the problem. All dark areas of the display project the issue even still.

Additional Information

I understand you guys are very busy at work on this game, trying to create a better gaming experience for everyone, but this needs to be top priority, as I’ve seen the other bug complaints, none of them come even near to this. The game is just simply impossible to play at night now and I’m kinda getting fed up, as I only recently bought this game a week ago and was just starting to get into it. Please Please Please, also read my other post on Dec 5, when I addressed two other very game-altering issues that still have yet to be resolved. Thanks for reading this, take care.

Event Timeline

DisneyChickROX triaged this task as Immediate priority.

Night time is now very short. You can wait less than 5 minutes and it will be day again.

I understand that nightime has been significantly reduced, but it is still an issue more pressing than the rest. For those like me that use nightime for a strategic advantage, or ind themselves in a dire situation, whether with regards to players or in-game threats, this is a great disadvantage. Nobody should have to quit and wait because of a faulty game-mechanic, in either case, this issue still should be considered top priority...
