Cannot turn on vehicle lights during day
New, WishlistPublic


It is not possible to turn on lights anymore during day. It's a shame, because lights are properly visible in Arma 3 content during day, and I can't think of real reason to limit this feature for player.

I think its to make the action menu less cluttered

Removing action menu show condition is not the same as disabling feature completely. It was working correctly before.

My guess is that it is a performance choice to disable all lights during the day. Especially dynamic lights eat a lot of processing power.

I would be surprised if dynamic lights were cast even during daytime before, when we could use that option regardless of time of day.
