    Everytime it gets midnight on BDO everything turns black and i cant see where i am going. I know there is a lantern but even with this its still to dark. The problem with this is that i get stuck in the water or basement when i am doing a quest. Is there a way to adjust the daytime or adjust the settings to make it clearer?

    I have the opposite opinion, nights are not dark enough. Plyers should have to NEED a lantern (or, well, a fairy) to see properly their surroundings :/
    But caexx gave you a fix, increase gamma, works nicely ;)

    I also have the opposite opinion... nights should be darker.

    During the Beta Testing, they did some tests of nights that were very dark, almost pitch black. You needed some type of light source, such as a lantern, to see. It was amazing, and when they added a storm to the pitch black night it was the very definition of "atmosphere".

    I guess too many people whined about it because it never made it into release. I know I liked it though.

    Turn up gamma to about 20, and use the filmic filter... nights are pitch black.

    Or you're encountering a bug I get frequently where everything becomes pitch dam black. It's to do with effects/particle settings apparantly but I always have to restart to fix it which doesnt fix it every time.

    Nights could be a tad darker yes but then the latern should also work and spend light.
    Because sometimes like in caves it does not do anything. It gets dark and you cant see anything even if you have the latern fueled and active.

    FFS we can't drown, we can't deal with any environmental challenge without people crying.

    I miss the semi-dangerous water days. At least we have seaweed and stuff now.

    Getting stuck that prevents movement is not a small thing. I think my gamma setting was wrong i found the option and its adjusted and fine now :)

    Go into setting check "game efffects" under display, gama and contrast settings, one of updates could change it without your knowledge

    I would say it isn't dark enough and the nights should last a tad longer.
