Equipping a new item without turning off an equipped Flashlight leaves a light on the ceiling indoors.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


The process of equipping a weapon and swapping out a currently equipped (and ON) flashlight will leave a the light on the ceiling(as if the light were still pointed at it). The light doesn't go away until the Flashlight is equipped.

i think the flashlight gets stuck when "ON".

Had the same issue with switching Pants.
The Turned On flashlight was not moveable in inventory till turned off.

That wasn't my problem. I could move, drop, turn on/off, but only when I reequipped it did the light go away on the ceiling.

this also happens when a player dies with his flashlight equipped, it will still look like the corpse has the flashlight in his hands (there is a lightbeam coming from his hand) even though you already took the light into your own inventory.
