[Suggestion] Remove the shine and darken the screen a bit when using dark glasses.
New, WishlistPublic


To give greater realism when using dark glasses, the screen should darken slightly and glow of the sunshine and lights should be decreased.

The survivor would have advantages and disadvantages, choosing the best tactics depending on the situation: against the sun, your view would not be overshadowed due to sun glare, but his vision would not the sharpest because of the dark glasses.

good point. sunglasses have no use at the moment, right?
think they want to implement it in future patches.

and sunglasses shouldnt be wearable with any kind of mask (including motorcycle helmets)

gas masks dont reduce your runspeed in the first way in real life, it reduces your stamina. which is ingame still infinite.

I agree - the glare of looking into the sun should be reduced by sunglasses. Likewise wearing them at night should be a disadvantage.

While we are at it, wearing a gas mask should make it harder to breath and reduce your run speed. Anybody who has worn a gas mask in the military knows they make it hard to breath, and generally suck to wear for any length of time.

You shouldn't be able to wear glasses with a gas mask, and you shouldn't be able to wear a motorcycle helmet with a gas mask.

Agreed, what is the point in sunglasses if they do not stop the glare from the sun.
huidube, I wear sunglasses whilst also wearing my motorcyle helmet on a daily basis so I can't agree that you should not be able to do that.
Also, in this stage of the early alpha with no other form of transport I think that having infinite stamina is warrented. When we start getting vehicles in the game then I would agree that gas masks could reduce your stamina for added realism.

Such an old suggestion - but still relevant. Allow sunglasses and dark moto helmets to reduce sun glare. There are mods that do it with a few lines of code - so there is really no excuse not to do this.
