Torches & Lanterns intensity is far too much.

Recommended Posts

Does anyone else find the sheer brightness from torches/lanterns far too excessive? That one torch is putting off that much light. It doesn't look nice and in fact, it's far too hard on the eyes. Am I the only one that finds the incredible glare just too much?

Below, is one torch and one lantern at a long distance.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that has debated just running around without lights because of how intense the glare is. In certain areas, I think I see better even without them.

I totally agree, at my outpost they have some up around the building they are quite annoying at night due to just how intensely bright they are.

On other games, it seems I could never have enough torches at times. This one, however, one shines with the intensity of the sun.

Would also be nice, when they would drop the durability loss. We have a extended Trading Post now and nobody wants to pick up a dozen public lanterns every day :/

+1 on this. Both torches and lantern grow way too bright. A brightness setting on the torch or lantern (by holding E) would be an awesome fix.

Tint a lantern with grey or black paint to tone down the brightness.

White, grey or black paint on a lantern will give clean light.

Guess I'm cooking up a ton of dye. That looks better than the hot garbage the base lanterns are.

Most of our wall Lanterns are grey, you need a few more to fully light an area, but the glare and haze are way down.

And before anyone asks; no, you can't tint torchlight.

What if you want a cozy orange glow, but not as bright? Which dye is best?

Not tried oranges. Red, greens and cyan are all quite vivid though, so I suspect you might be out of luck.

Give it a go and report back 🙂
