Why is the game so dark at night? Especially in towns

    One of my main isssues with this game is the fact that in towns there is no lighting at night? My main town is Heidel and at night you would think there would some form of lighting to keep the streets bright. No the town is completely dark but the npcs just chill out in the dark, it is so weird to me.

    Because it is night time and it is normally dark at night. Use the fireflies if it is too dark for you.

    Someone told me that it is actually because of lore that heidel doesn't have lanterns outside. They are saving their oil or something? Can anyone confirm this somehow?

    Dark nights was a "futures" for immersion to have day/night cycles look more realistic, because at night some NPC open/close and some monsters appear. Nights was changed like ~1 year ago to be more bright, before its basically was black screen.
    Old night.

    Most folks are pretty poor in Serendia now after the war against Calpheon, and they're being taxed pretty hard, but right now I don't recall any mention of such a thing.

    I like the dark nights. I dislike it when games make night time bright. Sure in heavy pvp I add brightness but outside of pvp I love the dark nights.

    What I dislike is when it rains my crops dont get water -_-

    I'm sure there is photo filter to set night back to be black screen.

    Well it is dark at night when you have your gamma and contrast set right, espeically on optimization with many glimmering effects missing. In protty cave and stars end it is so dark on optimization mode you literally do not see anything during night(unless you shift your gamma and contrast, what most people do anyway to be able to properly farm).

    It is kind of dark in real life at night time as well.. especially when your not in a city. You use a torch right?

    so use a firefly.. and if it bothers you shift the contrast and brightness.

    People complain about the smallest things

    Indeed, when you have remastered turned on there is no night anymore.

    Really? I think Remastered: Ultra mode is incredibly dark. It has harsher shadowing too so that adds to the darkness. If I turn down my graphics everything appears to be much brighter, at least that's what I see when I change my graphics around. It's all in the settings too - contrast/brightness.
    If anything the moon is really lit up so sometimes it's hard to see the shape of it in comparison to lower graphics, I remember that during the Halloween Blood Moon Event.

    I love the night and don't mind it being dark, I think the night is too short as well.

    Anyone remember this video??
    Sigh
    I miss the lanterns too! You could equip and un-equip when needed. I didn't really use them at night but, I did use them when cave exploring. With the firefly it's annoying because you can't disable it once it's used.
