Mod name: Pitch Black Version: 1000248.64a (I shall not release a mod before it's time...:) ) Creator: KoGar Created on: Wednesday, May 23, 2007 Description: How would you like "The Zone" to be so dark at night that you cannot tell what the weapon looks like in your hand, even with NV on? Well, now you can with "Pitch Black"...That's right, now you not only have to worry about the Bandit about to pop a cap in your buttocks, but you also have to worry about that landmine you can't see at your feet...BOOM!!...Ooppsss...:) When the sun goes down in the Zone you better hope to have a good hiding place. This is just a simple fun mod I made to make things more "interesting". Once 8pm at night arrives the lights go out completely, until 8am. There is still some ambient light and your NVs will help a great deal.

don't listen to some of the naysayers on your comments m8 on the main webpage, at least you've got the balls to give it a go and save others the effort. ;)
Believe me, I have been modding games for years so most non-modders bad remarks are overlooked by me...:)
good philosophy :)
Sounds like a good idea, but would NPCs vision be screwed in the same way as yours? Or are we going to be getting shot at killed from the shadows? Only seeing muzzle flashes and damage location indicators?
Just a thought, what if you made it get dark at 8 as if it was normal stalker's midnight , 11:45-4ish do your pitch black mod, then break into morning. Give the zone a feeling of a much longer nighttime, or 2 night times...I dunno.
It does affect the NPCs too. The devs did a good job implementing the way NPCs can see in this game; if it's dark they need flashlights and NVDs also.
Ah I love darker night mods for my games, good work.
