Wish this would get a higher priority. It adds value to staying alive and apart from beards there's currently nothing else that does track a character's progress in a meaningful way.

This bug is still persistent on stable 1.10, even when inside buildings/under cover that would otherwise prevent rain from hitting the barrel.

It also limits the use of raincoats and NBC clothes as they are low insulation and therefore barely useful anywhere off the coast.

I used a hand drill kit to light a Long Torch, yesterday on Experimental servers. It still consumed the kit. @Geez

I can't see the screenshot (how do you download the file?), so my post is from my experience and feeling of the game as it is currently.
I can only agree with the people saying that you should have a radius of about 2-3m around you in which you can see almost everything (except of colors - or at least very desaturated), but then your vision should gradually fade into black.
What I find very important though, is that this shouldn't be instantly when you leave a lit place. Your eyes should have to adapt to the darkness, gradually becoming better adjusted to the dark (over, like, the course of 3 minutes) and be rapidly unadjusted again, once someone lights a torch into your face point blank.
This would add multiple aspects of realism to the game:
First it makes the torch more useful. Right now it only gives away your position and it will be even more the issue if darkness was made more navigable. Torches (especially mounted on weaponry) could be used in close-quarter assaults to incapitate a target adjusted to the dark.
Second, while it might be a good idea to light up your base, so noone can enter or move about easily unseen, it also makes you a target, standing literally in a spotlight, for outsiders.
TLDR: Up voted. Vision should adjust to Darkness (to a reasonable amount) over time. Adjustment should be destroyed by bright light.
