Would like to see maybe 2 hours day 2 hours night or possibly have the server do 12 hours night/day (alternate).

Not having night completely negates the reason for having nightvision & nightvision weapons. It also adds another level of difficulty.

There's also a script that can be added server side to allow the players to vote day/night.

Night/Day Cycle would be great! I don't know about cycling it on every restart though; That would get a bit annoying I think. I real time cycling would be good... Eastern, central time zones. I don't know what time zone the majority of the players are in. Adds another element in my opinion.. See ya on the server!!

Why don't you just change it to be chosen client side? In my experience servers that change to day/night cycles usually end up experiencing a sever drop in players during night cycles.

The Tavi server currently has a voting system in place for day/night cycles. Do you have records of how many times people actually voted for night instead of day?

The green screen night vision gives me headaches and unfortunately it's not a play style choice for me.

I agree with having the option for the vote. That way players could change it to day if enough of them want to during night. Definitely need a night/day cycle though.. Just have the option to vote cycle through the server messages just so new players know they have the option to change night/day..

Players have been able to vote since the beginning. type "vote day" or "vote night" and it will cast a vote. 70% of players must vote for the opposite in order for it to change.

As for the NVG, i agree with somerled, it gives a headache. But, that is why i have installed the full NVG screen on the server. The full screen being green is not even as near bad as the green circle imo. You have to try it first lol. Its easy to install. Theres a post in the forums explaining what needs to be done.

The cycles im not sure yet, 3hr day 1 hr night, or real time. We can try both and players can voice their opinions. But this is why im making a poll, its ultimately the communities decision.

Thanks for all the inputs and votes!!

Please leave it as vote day/night as the lighting affects with sun setting in taviana is horrible and causes blinding light by looking in one direction and then pitch black by looking another and it would be utterly annoying.
