Title: Night

Would it be possible to try some night time on the server to mix it up a bit?

NVG's are easy to find, lets have a bit of realism..... Give us 2 hrs of night. Or mix it up a bit and have 8 hr restarts and 4 hrs daylight 1 hr of dusk and 3 hrs of night  ;)

Have a test ready for some night time, enjoy and give feedback please :)
Was also pondering first person only for added realism too, any thoughts?

Server begins life at 11:59am, June 20th 2016 after each restart.
It takes 1hr 40mins until night time arrives (8pm in game).

Night lasts about 40mins I think.

Hello. I'm VikingSail. relatively new to the server and so far i like it.
I generally like the way Day/Night are shifted on the server. Night goes faster so that we don't have to endure long darkness. Since the night is dark and full of terrors. :)
I think 8 hr of server restart cycle is a good idea - if possible. With that being said, we could experience a bit longer day and night time in real life.

About 1st person mode only: I'm for it. I like the 1st person mode a lot and generally I play 99% of the times in first person.
I know some people hate it but it really gives you a realistic feeling while wondering around. Try to turn on "rotation blur" and make it around 100-120. It feels epic. :)

Hey buddy, we are limited by the date that we use in terms of hours of darkness. In-game it gets dark from 8pm'ish to 4am'ish. Do you think it is too long or too short?

The reason we have a summer night chosen for the date is to have a brighter sun in the sky during daytime and a full moon during the night time for better visibility all round.

I too play in 1st only most of the time but I think it is too much of a limiting factor for the server, leaving the choice between 1st and 3rd will stay :)

Yes. What I meant was I think the night is a bit too short. It really feels like a long day combines with a really short night. But I'm also afraid if we put the night longer, there would be  less players on the server during the night cycle. :(
And I have nothing against the 1st/3rd person mode argument. :)

Yeah, that's a problem we don't want to run into. Having night on the server is a big gamble, we're looking into ways to make it less punishing for players without disabling it fully.

Certainly don't want to lose players because of the night but it definitely adds a really cool feature to the server.
