I'm mapping right now, and I'm wondering. If there was a fairly dark map that encouraged the usage of Night vision, would you buy/use it? I mean even in dark maps, you see lots of people just flashlighting their way through. It's true the NVGs are not generally favored, but I'm really wondering if you would use NVGs. I'm not saying once or twice either, I'm saying many rounds. I'm asking this because I'm making a certain map that could be either dark or noon, and dark might have the most cinematic effect, but wouldn't be immersive/fun (ie groping in the dark) unless you had NightVision. So I'm just asking if you guys would be buying NVGs at all.

    Yes, it looks funky, it helped me out in a few maps where visibly is low, and it is cheap with the dynamic pricing. XD

    No, because it simply wastes time at the start of the round. And it makes stuff harder to see, well at least for me it does.

    Yes i would, i believe you should make this map dark, because i have had a similar idea of creating a dark map and everyone has to either use their flashlights or buy nightvision to get around. It would be great fun because someone with nightvision and a pistol would beat someone with a rifle and without nightvision.

    It's not really a night-time swamp incursion without nvgs though D:

    Sam fisher had it in Pandora Tomorrow!

    Also, I dread the event in which everyone is sneaking through the swamp undetected with NVGs, and some idiot in the middle runs around with a flashlight on. JOY, quick, all terrorists, open fire randomly on the big spot of light!

    Ye i tend to buy them when its a dark map because;
    1. I can't see that well because of it dark.
    2. I sometimes have the sun beaming through and on to my screen and i can't get my room dark enough to cut the lguth out completly.

    Just the M4. Both have the USP. But if you move fast, volume won't matter.

    I think there are enough fy and aim maps that are dark. Though something like dust2 that'd be completely dark would suck.

    There are maps out there, based off of Socom, they are dark/night time, and it is a lot easier to see when you use NVGs. I wish I could find more servers with those maps. I like using NVGs when you are supposed to.

    Well, as I stated I can't really find any servers, but I suppose I can go rummage around in my maps folder and try to give you an example.

    EDIT: Ok, so I looked around in there and found one called scm_frostfire_b1. I did a google search, to see if I could find a place where you could download it if you wanted, and got a link to here, interestingly. Here is the link.

    How about this: have 3+ ways to get into where the goal is, one being fairly dark, so nightvision is recommended. Sound like a plan?

    Yes. You should make it so its dark. Should be very interesting. I also have the problem of having my room to bright. Should be interesting though with either using flash lights or nightvision. Plus i have never played any of these maps.
