http://www.gamingforums.com/showthread.php?t=102378&page=1&pp=25 I'll dig this ol' gem up since Night Paratrooper maps have recently become a incessant request. This is, not because I created it of course, what I feel to be the best thread concerning this matter. Check it out and post if you see fit.:deal:

Example of how NOT to make a night map: (click to enlarge) t_peg2.jpg t_peg3.jpg

Can't believe that BG42 resorted to making a night map on such a low level. As you can see, all they did was add a dark sky. But you can still see everything in full color as in broad daylight :eek: :rolleyes: EoD night maps are better since they added heavy fog, so you don't see as far, but even then, those maps are still as bright as the daylight. Now here is an example of how to make GREAT night maps: 15-small.jpg obragg2-small.jpg obragg3-small.jpg Note that it's not only the sky that is dark, but the whole world. Everything is in the shadow. A soldier walking 10 meters away from you will be merely a dark shadow, not a bright green uniform like on the first screenshots.

plus our boys have hands.

And you can rest assured that our nightmaps will be nice and desaturated. They are looking simply stunning.

MG/Flak tracers would be cool, but not on smgs or rifles.
