Torch

Recommended Posts

Well....It´s not really dark, so why get a torch?

Btw. If a torch is coming then you have to pay for it. That's sad for the n00bs. Then they can't affort a torch :twisted:

also i dont know if the environment in eternal lands support lightning movements like a torch would create... if it doesnt, a torch would be quite useless :D

Torch not needed. I like the dark effect. It might help stimulate or facilitate other collective activities that do not require outdoor light ... indoor meetings, duals, etc., my 2 plats.

erm... arn't light movements faiiirly important for stuff (ie spells) I mean i guess you could use self ilumination on the texture to make it look like to glows sorta..... or a animated map of some sort... thats just my 2 cents

A torch would be cool. Like have dark around yourself and a torch slighlty illuminating where you stand. Is it possible to do Ent, Roja?

a torch is a great idea, im sick of all these people whining all the time when it gets dark because they have their monitor brightness like as low as it can go

 

another idea would be random torches throughout the cave instead of just those like total of 5 'crystal lights' that are in there now... also.. maybe we will get torches whenever they actually put an actual FIRE in the firepile like roja said was gonna happen one day

I would like to see torches as long as they are cheap, but i would not like the areas to suddenly become darker just to make use of them.

Night time and cave can be dark at time and torch is good for then

Yes, a torch would be very nice, it would help add some more atmosphere, and a bit of realism(i mean would you travel "miles" through the forests without a light or flame?). It's no big deal really but it would be a really nice touch. Maybe after we get that campfire nice and cozy warm, heh?

Count light sources close together as one? Look only at the 8 strongest lights? If there are more than 8 light sources close together, you might be able to make some approximations, given the large amount of light.

That's what I am doing right now, but there are some artefacts if a lot of people come with torches in the same area. Won't show up in screenshots, but will show up in the game.

There will be a daylight spell.

hmmm maybe if you add duengons which of course would be dark would help make you see a little farther (or maybe tourches can be used as a weapons in some cases) like on certain monsters that are scared of fire (like some things in the real world)

torches are good idea. if is there problem with more then 8 lights, then only player controlled character's torch is with active light, other chars w/o active lights. thats only +1 light to scene.

 

 

and; torchs will be good that they can be manufactured: knife/sword + tree/bush + tinderbox.

I was wondering if we could get back to this idea. It would be amusing to see invasions during the nights with people standing on the walls with torches to light the monstes below so the archers can shoot them down. Of course, that would require including the torch-range, changing light conditions and the like and their impact on ranging. However, that would be absolutely epic!

When will there be a daylight spell?
