DayX PC Shock Value
Assigned, NormalPublic


I want to start with how much I love this game. You can see I've played about 5 ish years and appreciate all the devs have done and do with this game.
However, as someone who suffers from PCS (post concussive syndrome from a Traumatic brain injury), Migraines, and Light Sensitivity, I will likely have to stop playing this game if the "impact" or whatever it's official name is, isn't toned down. I Wasn't sure if I was going to Vomit or pass out today on stream.
Please tone it down.

Much appreciated,


Operating System
Windows 10 x64
Steps To Reproduce

Sunglasses Mod does help from sun rays some

Additional Information

Please tone this down. I realize it adds to "realism", but I often play this game to escape that mess

Hello friendly_chick.
What is exactly the problem? As we have trouble understanding what does specifically trigger the migraines/sickness.

When being hit by zombies or by any other impact there is ‘shock effect’ where the screen will flash white with blurred effects ect
This is causing lot of medical attacks for me its triggering chronic debilitating migraine attacks and bounds of bad vertigo.
Also the sun in the game is quite bad for people with light sensitivity which is only helped by the glasses mods in some server. We are finding the most of the time we are playing looking at the ground.
Could there be options in the setting to turn the shock effect off and a option to turn the glare from the sun down ?
Kind regards

Yes, the Blur affect from zombie impact. Those of us with Neurological Medical conditions are struggling with this horribly. The same for the God Rays.
Thank you so much for all the work you do with this awesome game!
Hopefully something can be done.
