Again with the "game" map....

I'll start off with this. When this map rework came in the ptb I was blown away, it was the absolute best looking map in dbd to date! from lighting to textures it was all done fantastically...…But now in the live build it looks far worse. The lighting is far brighter and much lower quality, they also changed the lighting and "tints" in the bathroom and tv room, The TV room went from having very realistic and atmospheric lighting coming from the white noise on the box TV, to having this weird ugly flicker that for some reason glows orang despite the TV not showing the color. as well as the circular windows which used to have the TV's white static pour out into the hallway creating a nice atmospheric touch, to now have really poorly super ugly placed orange light sources "on" the windows that don't have an origin or "light source" .

Now for the bathroom. The bathroom has lost its "grim" blue tint and atmospheric fog which gave life and character to the room as well as having the dead body sometimes clip into the ground.

And now in the main surveillance room and surrounding area the lighting has just completely changed, pretty much the same as listed before...

I'm going to link a video so anyone can look and compare.


and yes I did obviously compare the current build to the ptb and its a huge, awful change. @Peanits you are the community manager so I am asking why this change was made if intentional. @joris_bhvr

    Pretty sure the patchnotes of the live version mentionned the changes and something about the map being too dark. Yes, it makes no sense for them to want bright maps in an horror/survival game, but that's the reason I recall them using to justify those changes. (I would have to look it up to be sure but it's 11:20pm here and I can't be bothered)

    Dark maps make the game a horror game for killers, y'all. Autohaven is the realm Blendette came from now. I don't want any more of that myself.
