Hi,

 

Does Chernarus Redux somehow alter how lighting works on other maps too?

 

I'm asking because I'm having an issue on other maps, like Altis, only when this map is in the modlist of mods being loaded.

 

To give an example:

 

I only have the following mods loaded, all latest versions:

  • CBA
  • TPW MODS (only using the HUD and full-color nightvision)
  • CUP Terrains - Core
  • Chernarus Redux

This is what I do and experience:

  1. Loading ARMA only with the above listed mods.
  2. Open 3den editor and choosing Altis as map.
  3. Putting down a soldier (Infantry) on the map.
  4. Setting the time for nighttime.
  5. Running the scenario as is.
  6. Putting on Tactical Glasses, which activates the TPW HUD.
  7. Activating fullcolor Nightvision, a function of TPW HUD.

At this point brightness is turned down to 0, mening there is no lighting gain. Adjusting brightness or lighting gain, is part of the TPW HUD.

Whenever I turn brightness up, increase the gain, it goes up a level as expected, but only for a second and then immediately goes down to 0.

 

This only happens when I have Chernarus Redux loaded and it doesn't matter if I play on this map or any other map.

So somehow this map seem to alter things on other maps.

Unloading Chernarus Redux everything works as expected.

 

I'm not sure exactly what is going on, but maybe you can throw some light on it, parten the pun, so I better understand. ;)

chernarus_flashlight.pbo is the culprit, it runs 2 scripts fn_darkness_effect.sqf and fn_getaperture.sqf which prevent ambient light when underground. Trouble is they run on all other maps too and interfere with any scripts such as TPW MODS which use setaperture for things such as night vision.

 

chernaruski, if you're running TPW MODS then you activate colour night vision with ctrl+alt+n

 

By the way, thanks for an astonishing terrain (although my CPU doesn't thank you, it's very heavy!).

@stlassenYep, the only thing that can effect your NV lighting is the altar darkness effect script. Let me check with the senior dev , and the original author of this script , what can be done about it.

@tpw , thank you. We took a note of  performance issues (at some locations) and will be balancing things out for a better optimization in future patches.

@stlassen  , I still have no answer for you about the darkness script , since the guy who created the script have limited time to adress this.  So , atm,  we kinda "stuck" with it.  The only thing I can come up with is that

you can try and disable it completely by adding 

missionNamespace setVariable ["CHR_DisableDarkness",true,false];   


to initplayerlocal.sqf .

@chernaruski Hey! It's fine. :rthumb: I understand it's a big project and things takes time. 😉 I'm sure it will get solved eventually. 🙏🏻

And thank you for the scriptline. I'll try it out when I get the opportunity.

Sounds interesting, is it an easter egg to be found?

It's to recognize those who have contributed to the project until now so should be fairly easy to find

Is DS Houses still required for this terrain? It's listed here as a requirement but not on the SWS.

No they are now incorporated as part of the terrain itself.

Any idea if those amazing new sounds are going to conflict with players running JSRS?

Using JSRS myself here, haven't heard any problems with the sounds. You can always load it up yourself and test & if you happen to find any let me know.
