RE: pitchblack

1,1,1 value box lights that wont illuminate any walls etc. That disables night vision

RE: pitchblack

AFAIK, this requires a full conversion.

RE: pitchblack

It requires full conversion to disable night vision completely, but if you make the area the player walks in illuminated with a light value above the treshold that triggers night vision, it wont happen. Thus do this thing I used in my 24 hour amnesia map:

make sure the player can actually navigate in there, I did that terribly and people had serious trouble getting past this thing. But yeah, it doesnt illuminate the walls but only the player so night vision wont trigger...

RE: pitchblack

If you would describe the whole event you are trying to create, that could really help people help you further...
