well atleast the technology exists in game, it deff can be too dark, but I went crazy with my tv settings (like an hour diving into advanced color settings with a guide for my tv) and got it looking much much better for all my games, and tv watchingThere are night vision scopes. Not sure if they are specifically for sniper rifles but here's an image of the one on my sniper rifle.
Edit: Just went down to Wilson and bought another one that functions way more like night vision goggles. It's also just for sniper rifles so it would mean that you would have to constantly carry around a sniper rifle with you but it works.
I wondered about lack of IR or thermal myself but then figured that issue with implementing those would mean that then why enemies shouldn't have them too.
NPC AI CAN see in the dark LOL... I mean if they cannot I have not experienced that darkness allows me to sneak better. Anyway, I tired some experimenting with the motorcycle head light (in various location son various materials) and I see no reason why this game cannot have a flashlight as the head light functions in exactly the same way and THAT is working in the game.
So at the very least this is good news for the possibility for a mod to add a flashlight or head light into the game Fallout 4 style.
Then there's that enemies should react to light, so flashlight would only emit light on certain spectrum visible only via implant player has?
Implant and flashlight combination is convoluted but I was actually thinking about tech aspect and that, I'm not that much to background material and that, but they kinda have a point too. So compromise in that aspect too and what comes to NPC AI, I think simple, scenarios with least amount of variables might be most likely to get implemented.I feel we do not have to over think this. You see the Enemies on the mini map (even around corners) so I guess it is fair if they see you with a flashlight, a simple bonus in the code should be easy for the DEV (as mod makers have add torch and flashlights in other games with simple tricks like making it have a sound the NPC can only hear). Or just make it easy and say you cannot sneak with a flashlight on in the dark.
I do not really know the engine so I am just speculating. But after doing some tests with the motorcycle head lamp I went from no it is probably not possible for the engine to HEY this should be easy for this single player if they put even a little time into it.
For me the flashlight would be a QOL feature so I do not care if this has no effect on the NPC. But it would not be difficult to have SOME effect with NPC.
i woulda thought dem fancy eyeballs would have itAs far as I know there is no night vision or a flashlight in the game. Which is very disappointing, because I can barely see in the dark places. CDPR if you read this, please add one of theese in the near future. Thank you.
