Additional Information

I am not sure if this was intended, but I do not need lights to see anything anymore. I do not need to use Night vision goggles to you within 300-400 meters. I can easily snipe at night with regular scopes. If this was intended please bring back dark nights. I’d understand a compromise, but it has damaged the mood of nights and has made playing at night almost feel the same as day time.

@asog88, In a year there are only three months when the night can be short and very light.
Changing only periods of the year, at the same time of day can be very dark or very light.
What time of year was on the server?

Maybe it's my display, or an issue with my eyes, but I still can't see anything at night (which is a good thing). The sky seems a bit brighter, which allows you to separate it from the horizon and navigate long distances a bit more accurately, but at ground level I can't see a darn thing without a light source.

We need to get over the nighttime. Some people think it’s too dark, some think it’s too bright. They will never please everybody. I actually think night is in a good place right now. (It is not, as you say, ‘almost the same as day’!) It is just bright enough to have a firefight. Plus, moonlight seems to be a thing. The only problem is that light sources are near-useless. The only change I would like now, would be to make interiors pitch black, so that you HAVE to use a light. Not sure it’s possible, though.

@sanguine00 @EnterThePug Brightness of the night depends on the server configuration, which plays a period - month of the year, week, calendar day. Seasons have different intensity of illumination of the horizon and the night sky. The lunar calendar is working, but in the game the moon is not a source of light. For these reasons, we can hear different opinions about the brightness of the night from the players. Each expresses an opinion about their experience of the game, each with its own experience on the time period of the year on the server. Someone usually gets on the server with a bright night sky, someone with a dark night sky.
Details in my ticket on the problem of work lunar light T143219.

@Lex I have been playing around with the calendar in the offline mod, and you're right. Time of year does make a difference. Night has, overall, gotten brighter since 1.05, though. I believe that's what asog is referring too. Also, the moon is definitely a source of light. It's weak, but it still works. Look at these screenshots taken in the same place, but with the moon in a different position (all taken during January in the in-game calender)

@EnterThePug Moon should play a significant role in the night sky. Look in the game on the moon trace of light on the water surface.

The lunar surface reflects sunlight, making the light is very bright but cold. But in the game the moon like a gray spot which is almost does not reproduce light. The moon as a light source capable of producing vibrant night scene and contrasting shadows. Now the game full moon weakly stains the landscape and creates a faint shadow.

@Lex Yeah, it's definitely weak, but I'm positive that the brightness changes in 1.05 affected the moon, too. Arma 3 levels would be amazing, though.
