[Suggestion] Brightness Slider
No votes left
There are places that are too dark for my preferences even in a sunny environment. Adding a brightness slider could help a lot. If it is already planned in the full release, then there's no problem.

I'd have to disagree with this to an extent .. have you been in a thick forest before? There's not much sunlight .. That's the kinda feel that I get from this biome when you're not near one of the lakes/rivers. I like the feel of it!
I agree. I even tried changing my monitor settings to improve the situation and it's just a sea of blackness,,, even in the middle of the day. All those beautiful assets but they can't be seen.
Yes. In daylight some areas are way to dark, needs adjustment that doesn't affect the actual sunlit area and wash it out.
There is a lighting issue. Sunlight is 'super bright', but torches are relatively dim. The lighting system needs to be consistent.
I'd like to see some gamma control "player selectable."
I agree with this complaint. While in the Forest Biome, which is basically located in a valley between mountains on pretty much all sides, when the sun comes up, the land is still under a shadow from the mountains and the same when the sun sets. Once the sun sets, if you don't sleep in a bed after 20:00 to speed the clock to 07:00, the game is pretty much unplayable unless you have a Torch in your hand. Even then, with a torch in hand, if you want to harvest anything (Ore, Fiber, Wood, Hunt, etc.) you must switch to a tool which then puts your torch away making it too dark to see what you are harvesting or defending against in the event of a Wolf or Bear attack. Not sure if there was one or not, (I couldn't see one because it was too dark) but maybe add a Moon to light the night sky? Similar to what Rick did, adjusting my Gamma settings didn't help. Please consider looking into this as it would add a better night time game play for the players.
i agree, i personally dont have any issues and it was good during day and pitch black during night like its supposed to be, but taking into consideration how much different hardware and monitors are on the market everybody should have a way to adjust settings according to his hardware situation.
ANY gamma controls would be helpful.
Having the game be so incredibly dark in any amount of shadow even when the sun is up is bad design.
(Why they didn't have the sun rise up in the notch of the forest zone mountain ring is beyond me....it would be more impactful, rewarding visually and alleviate some of the issue.)
Yes, I've been in a forest...I own and walk through my own woods often and yep, there are indeed shadows. That said, this is a game, I need to be able to see the content to enjoy it. :)

"[SUG] Add a gamma adjustment for the game" (suggested by Pach on 2021-08-30), including upvotes (2) and comments (0), was merged into this suggestion.
Dont change this unless you make a penalty for them who increase brightness. The only thing brightness is needed is perhaps for streamers viewers. There is nothing else you need brightness other then that. Make you a torch, make pillar and put wall torches, standing torches. use your mindset to make your living better. Don't destroy the experience just because you are affraid of the dark or your just the lazy and ignorant of a real survival game.
i found in tree its dark but ok because in a forest so sunlight logic but when there have no tree its to white bright
I have a VA monitor that produces very deep blacks. I really like the way the game looks at night and in dark places, but I agree that you can add a gamma or brightness setting, because everyone has different preferences.
It does not seem like there is a brightness setting under display settings... This is problematic for color blind folk like me. I imagine hard of vision folk will also have trouble. I get wanting it to be dark at night or in caves, but even during daytime it can be hard to see if colors too bright etc...

I have to jack my monitor's brightness to maximum to play this game at all- and even with a torch/lantern it's completely unplayable for me even before it's actually "dark" (aka dawn and dusk.) I will 100% refund this game if there isn't a way to adjust this added because I literally cannot see anything for more than half of the day. I never could have imagined brightness settings being a deal-breaker on a game for me, but this is extreme and causing significant issues.
(My eyes aren't great. Please be reasonable, most games have brightness settings because not everyone has the same visual abilities.)
ANY gamma controls would be helpful. I have a friend who has some vision issues. I think it would be good to have the option for adjustment to make the game a bit more inclusive for all players.
Gamma can be used to gain big advantages in nights.
Any adjustment possibilities should not affect intended darkness or immersion/fear at night or in caves.
So there should be a limit on the adjustment range if option is added.
I think this is video card / monitor dependant. But my screen is pretty much black at night, I literally can't do anything without a way to reduce the level of darkness. Shadows are pretty absurd as well.
ONe whole day of playing. A bit dissapointing - entirly due to the use of extensive darkeness to make the game harder. People have different monitor brightnness requirements - for acuity and eyestrain etc. Forcing people to crank their monitor brightness up or use HDR to get aroung the extensive darkeness means the game is not about skill but technical tweaking. Please just get over the obsession with using darness to make things hard to see. You obviously recognise the problem as actionable items like fires wood, trees and rock are lit with a ghost outline. Without this the game would be unplayable. Please take the darkness out and take the ghost outlines out with them.
Играю с постоянно включенной настройкой управления NVIDIA, постоянно меняя гамму. Глаза устают. Зачем так темно - играть надо с удовольствием а не портить зрение.
I play with the NVIDIA control setting always on, constantly changing the gamut. My eyes get tired. Why is it so dark - you need to play with pleasure and not spoil your eyesight
I would also like to point out that a brightness slider would be a good option for players to have the option to use because there are people who play this game who have sight challenges. Having an option would help immensely for players who struggle with this issue.
