Weapon flash light too long on environment! Should be much shorter - 1 frame max!
New, WishlistPublic


Hey guys,

currently when you fire your gun at night there is the very nice, short muzzle flash (could be shorter though). The environment also gets lit up but in a very unrealistic way. The environment gets lit up for approx 100 miliseconds, this should not be the case! The muzzle flash lights up the environment for a VERY short time, one or two frames per second MAX!

Please reduce the duration the environment gets lit up from muzzle flash to a very short amount.

This is as short as it should be.

Indeed, I always wondered why the muzzle flash would light up the area for so long. Compare a rifle muzzle flash with the impact flash of a cannon, for example that of the AH-99 Blackfoot. Maybe it's just a decimal point error?
