was wondering if night vision goggles will be introduced if there is a day/night cycle.
And will looking into a bright light while wearing them blind the wearer for a short time. Kind of like a flash bang would do without the ringing in your ears.
Probably not, and from the official round table discussions I gather that this will not be the case. The reason is simple: this type of item would provide what's called 'an unfair advantage' in competitive (or "fair" if that suites you better) play. Same as tweaking gamma is, to some level, in some (poorly designed) games. The lighting system should be the thing that makes the aforementioned item unneeded though: consistent light in all environments, for all the actors and at all times.
