Pitch black nights

10 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me how to change the nights so they are pitch black? 

I have tried making it always cloudy

Changing the dates the server starts 

But alas to no avail !

Hi

Arma uses real life weather cycles and moon cycles, so google a date where there is no moon and apply that date with an overcast setting of 1.

Should be darker then.. stuff..

Easier to get pitch black with a color filter on like;

correction.sqf:

"ColorCorrections" ppEffectEnable true; 
"ColorCorrections" ppEffectAdjust [0.88, 0.88, 0, [0.2, 0.29, 0.4, -0.22], [1, 1, 1, 1.3], [0.15, 0.09, 0.09, 0.0]];
"ColorCorrections" ppEffectCommit 0;

"filmGrain" ppEffectEnable true;
"filmGrain" ppEffectAdjust [0.02, 1, 1, 0.1, 1, false];
"filmGrain" ppEffectCommit 5;

"ColorCorrections" ppEffectEnable true;
"ColorCorrections" ppEffectAdjust [0.89, 0.89, -0.001, [0.2, 0.2, 0.2, -0.1], [1, 1, 1, 0.9], [0.35, 0.25, 0.25, 0]];
"ColorCorrections" ppEffectCommit 0; 

Exec it from InitPlayerLocal.sqf

[] execVM "scripts\correction.sqf";

Thanks for the replies - yes i test the moon cycles and they are correct, the issue is related to exile as running without exile gives me pitch black nights!

Im going to try the above code - cheers @Inq - Disabling exiles one would do the trick! -any idea on that

Any way to have that color effect executed on a specific time of day and reset during daytime?

try a day night check like this you can edit it to be smaller I use this for a skip time event

ENV_TIME_DAY = 08; //day time starting
ENV_TIME_NIGHT  = 21; //night time starting

while {isServer} do {
if (SkipTimeDay == 0) exitWith {}; //aborts code if using skip time system
_WaitingForDay   = (_this select 0) * 60;
_WaitingForNight = (_this select 1) * 60;
_SkiptDuration = (_this select 2);
currentTime = daytime;

while {true} do {
	if ((daytime > ENV_TIME_NIGHT) or (daytime < ENV_TIME_DAY)) then {

		if (_WaitingForNight == 0) then 

			{
            //code here

			} else 	{
            //code here
			
			sleep _WaitingForNight;
			};

		} 	else {

		
		sleep _WaitingForDay;		
		};
	currentTime = daytime;	
	};
};
