New idea, Lighting/Night Time raids Overhaul.


Recommended Posts

So i recently got bored on a max account, reset my account and started developing new challenges/ ideas to make Escape From Tarkov More fun, one of the biggest issues i have is how boring night time raids are more specifically i personally feel lighting is unrealistic not to the full extent it should be in my personal opinion. Therefore with Nvidia Freestyle or "Game Filter" I have come to the creation of my suggestion.


  • Code Name  "Blackout"

Messing around with game filter I was able to tweak Lighting and overall night time raids to be more immersive and create a new level of play style that I have fun playing recently, Making good use of Flashlights and NVG's now all maps have a more eerie/unsettling vibe to each raid. 

I Highly encourage any and all players to take part in this challenge as I'm currently testing which maps it works well with and how far or close i come to making this game impressively immersive. 
HOWEVER, it has huge flaws as it does use 3rd party software which means I am LIMITED as to what i can control. Using my filters to create this level of immersion comes at a cost...


  • Filters make the U.I Dark, hard to see and very hard to focus on if in a firefight. 
  • A.I Entities still react to you normally, (just cause its dark does not make the a.i any more blind than they already are), Sneaking around A.I does not work still.
  • Its client side, Meaning other players who are not using these filters will be able to see you in areas you think you are hidden due to how dark it is. 


if you would like to see how traversing and lighting works here is a video to demonstrate. 

This simply is a suggestion, im not taking part in any big "mod" or making new improvements to make this happen. 

For anyone who wants to use this and incorporate this into their raids, here are the settings that are used in the video. 

Promote this however you like as I would like to see this level of detail come to Escape From Tarkov. Hopefully one day, night time raids will be truly more immersive. Everyone needs to take part in this if you agree with this idea and have Battlestate Games have this in mind when it comes to updating the game to new ideas.

What do you guys think?
