Fog clearing capabilities of a torch

Recommended Posts

hm, to be honest i don't see the difference between those 2 screenshots. 

The game was made overally brighter because it was quite the eye strain before, when you have to walk around in the half light.

It doesn't show up that well in the screenshot, now that I look at it again.  The first screenshot I ever took of VS was of some mountains at night, and it was completely black in the screenshot even though they were quite visible in the game, even on the same computer.  In the game I could see the drifters in the cave quite clearly while holding the torch.  It was a very striking difference. 

You should still be able to see enough of the difference, though.  To be more precise about what I'm describing: the second picture shows the edges of blocks, and the outline of a drifter, while the first is very smoothly blurred together so that no detail is visible.  The torch didn't brighten anything in the cave, it just made it more clear.  If you can't see it, try looking at your screen from a higher angle.

Ok yea, had a look myself now, it does  indeed make distant stuff more bright than a placed torch. I could fix it but it almost seems a pity to remove as its probably quite useful for players?

Your call, I suppose.  I don't have a strong opinion either way, but I would lean towards removing it.  Definitely handy, but its just a matter of whether it is desirable to make it quite so handy.  It's a fairly small gameplay balance question.
