Reviewed, NormalPublic


Good tactical feature to toggle lights in houses/buildings, for cqb etc.

  • For mission design
  • For night operations
  • cqb\pvp at night inside buildings
  • have sense to use NVG and flashbangs to make blind enemys with nvg inside buildings

This is a thing I wanted to write about to but luckily it already exists.
For me the most important thing in this theme is that the lights are brokeable by bullets and explosives. This would be a really important feature because it would allow new tactics. For an example in multiplayer at night you would be able to make whole villages unable to see for helicopters without night vision.

Good point too :)
In general we must have lights inside first :)
so keep it cool :)!

I support this. "Fallout: New Vegas" had a mod that added light switches to buidlings. It was awesome.

Good idea. It should be modular, though. For example, if you want to have a post-apocalyptic mission, you should be able to disable all lights.

Laqueesha, yes :)

@Devs: you can Add module in Editor: Disable all lights in houses

So if approved, we have chanse to have it in beta or realise ;)?

Need more votes, please :)
