    'nuff said ;)

    LOL, seriously I just wanted to ask if the team had any plans on bringing nightvision into the game? It is very realistic, most soldiers have it, Special Ops uses it extensively etc.

    Plus with RAVE on a Mac, it is extremely hard to see anything, let alone on dark maps like Kosovo, and Siciliy-Night.

    Anyways, thats just ym idea. Will there be nightvision in another version of Infiltration?

    Well it's not most soldiers that carry it, it's just too expensive for that. But i think INF will get it in future, at least there was some arguement about it a while back.

    I don't think it's very hard to put in. I remember a mutator for UT that replaced the Invisibility with night vision, and it worked fine. And TO already has it, no complaints there.

    If your running GLIDE you can always boost your lightmodify out the ass. Dunno if other APIs have a similar thing, but I would think so. The result is basically all the dark areas on the map are now a dim-red color, making anyone hiding in them stand out like sore thumbs.

    I'm not saying that <em>I</em> use this, it is rather cheap and it looks fugly, but its something to mess with if you have trouble seeing what's around you.

    Nightvision extras...

    Unfortunately I have RAVE :(
    So I can't change brightness at all... the most I can do is turn my computer brightness to max, but since UT is a naturally dark game, you can get the idea ;)

    Nightvision would be really cool, but it shouldn't just be a really simple thing, like turning everything around you light green. It should cover part of your external vision, like real ones would. An example would be looking through bincoluars (though not that limited vision).

    Anyone have any other ideas?

    Kinda like Falcon 4.0's nightvision...

    (I'd post a screenshot, but I don't have Falcon 4.0 installed on this comp)

    A computer screen already limits what you would normally be able to see in real life. No need to make it worse IMHO.
