Sunset is a fantastic weather addition

Recommended Posts

So I've been playing the test server for a few hours now, have cycled through all the 4 current weather effects in the game now. Have to say to the sunset is currently the best of them all, the way the shadows have changed with the ground, the surrounding buildings and inside them as well, completely different feel to the game and I love it. Plus it's just damn beautiful to look at ^_^

My hat tips to you PU and Bluehole, you guys have outdone yourself on this in my opinion. Of course I will also say that the rest of this update is fantastic as well, can't wait for it to role out officially on Thursday! 

Anyone else have the pleasure of playing during the sunset yet? Thoughts? :)

Looking good, one of the things i'm most looking forward to experiencing when the patch goes live tomallow. As if all this violence and slaughter wasn't romantic enough without atmospheric lighting!

How is it in terms of brightness? It doesn't look very bright right now so probably won't affect positioning much. (A bright low sun in the West would give people coming from the East a disadvantage)

Yes, the old 'Hun in the Sun' tactic used by pilots in   WW! will come into play now.  Heading towards enemies with the sun at your back is a HUGE advantage.   Going to look sweet on my monitor thats for sure.

I noticed that in large areas not much has changed, but around the edges of hills, in the large towns, or facing east the lighting is quite a bit different, will it be a major change to play styles? Probably not, but it'll be a small adjustment, the few rounds I played, a few people where exposed on ridge lines more easily facing west to east, or for another example I was coming around a building on the east side and someone in the shadows of the building was a bit harder to spot and their movement was not as easily spotted.

Overall the experience in the matches was def an enjoyable one and it is something I look forward to experimenting with as I get to play more on. Since all three circles tended to be more field focused rather than in the hills and towns so I haven't experienced to much of that yet but what I have was different and change of tactics if only just by a little bit.

@Greaves Here you go mate, I did another quick match, now I will state that in terms of brightness and whatnot, I run an IPS panel as my main gaming panel, but when I switched to one of my PLS panels the lighting and everything looks completely different. So depending on the monitor, it's color reproduction, people in game brightness settings it will look a bit different, But here, hope this gives you a bit better explanation :) 

Settings where all Ultra, Brightness at 40.

@Nomad Thanks for the pics, looks really good and clarifies some of the differences when looking in different directions.

Haven't heard about it being cancelled so I assume they are still just working on it :)

Nomad, since you played in the test server...did you try driving over a shed with a vehicle now that they can be destroyed? That would be so fun!

the shadows are way off, if the sun is that low that shadow would be much taller...

In fact i wonder if the shadows are the same as the original weather we have, and they just changed the skybox and intensity/color of the light a bit
