Solar and lunar eclipses needed for better environment
Reviewed, WishlistPublic


After reading about solar eclipses, I would like to be able to set the time and place in the editor and have the eclipse occur during gameplay. Having the sun blocked out for a few minutes or a lunar eclipse occur could easily add some unique gameplay that has never been done before.

Advanced features would be under the "Advanced Intel" tab in the editor and would feature user decided solar and lunar eclipses that would allow the user to edit the time, duration and wether it is a partial or total eclipse.

Additional Information

Some examples of very unique gameplay as a result of a solar eclipse would be playing a mission were a total solar eclipse occurs: "you would be fighting or seeking through a base when suddenly, the suns light dims and the light level becomes that of night time or darker." you would then be able to seek by a bit easier or have reduced visibility due to the light level.

Don't see why someone voted against it, total eclipses are amazing in real life. This would not be a huge priority but would be cool to have later down the line.

This suggestion was processed by our team and will be looked into. We thank you for your feedback.

Thank you for taking the time to review my ticket.

The sun is still too big compared to the moon in ARMA for this to be achieved.
Good suggestion though up voted :-)
