Hello everyone,

 

Like many of you, I'm enjoying mods such as Darker Nights, Realistic Lights, FogOut and reshades.

We all like this darker and immersive atmosphere. :ninja:

 

The problem is, that all this darkness require to often use the flashlight which is extremely bright and instantly brakes the atmosphere!

This light makes a pitch black corner of a room look like it's under the sun...

 

What would be great, it's that if this light brightness would be the same as if when you set all the 3 colors to 1/4 or 1/3 of their intensity.

(in the Main - Display options where you change yourPipBoy screen colors)

This set of colors makes the flashlight intensity just perfect! But in same times makes the PipBoy interface so dark it's almost unusable. :sad:

 

Maybe someone could make a mod or modify one (like Legendary Lamps http://www.nexusmods...ut4/mods/1707/?), so the flashlight become much less brighter without affecting PipBoy screen interface brightness? :pinch:

 

Thanks

Cmon guys, there are already a bunch of mods that seem more complicated to make than this one.

It could be some kind of a binding/macro that would say: "if in pipboy menu -> rise the brightness, if not in pipboy -> lower the brightness" (where brightness would be the 3 colors strength that you set in main display options)

 

I'm sure everyone would love this mod!

Here is the idea with some pics:

 

no flashlight:

now when you turn on flashlight :

(this one is already lowered in RGB, but still too bright)

now with medium RGB values:

(the brightness is ok, but the PipBoy interface is begining to be very fade and dark)

and finally with low RGB settings:

(the PipBoy interface become almost unreadable)

I think this comparison illustrated pretty well, what the mod should do.

 

Just allow players to chose between the flashlight intensity they prefer but keeping the pipboy interface bright and shiny.

 

Also what is important, it's to lower the flashlight range!

It's obviously too big, it shouldn't light up the whole room, only the small area around the player, to keep the rest of the dark atmosphere untouched.

Make your pipboy color black and disable pipboy fx in your ini so you can still see it
