    Extifer Stiffy is what Lyanden calls me.

    I've been hearing from the general public that many do not like the new bluish tone of the moon for NOTD. In fact, I believe it was added before way back in the day and many also did not agree to it as well.

    Therefore, I must ask what everyone thinks and whether it should be changed back or not.

    My eyes are about to pop out of its socket... Anyway, someone had suggested to turn the shader down to low, so I did, which fixes the glowly white/bluish snowy looking ground.

    But ya, I hate it.

    PS. It's really hard to distinguish that from Recon SS.

    Same opinion as Vex I had to do the same thing otherwise my eyes would be fucked in like first 10 mins of gameplay. However it's a hassle to change my settings back and forth, like after I play Ec I got to put shaders on high for Surv. Otherwise I can't see shit, can't even see flares. I think that eye fucking background needs to be put down.

    I like it. Adds character to the map, and makes the ground look not so constantly bleak and samey.

    I would say the effect is fine, but the intensity is too much, it makes large parts of the map basically white, which contrasted with the black Fog of War is too much eye strain. So I vote neither, just needs intensity toned down (I'll ask Peer when I can about how to do this).

    The blue background is not good. It's too contrasty and makes the lighting effects appear too bright. The new creep just looks horrendous and like the backgound, looks as if it has serious contrast issues.

    Ok, next patch has the intensity dialed down a bit, give it a spin when it goes live (probably in a couple hours once Ability can upload), and see if it is any better.

    Came here to post about this. Glad it's being changed already I could not play like that.

    I think people should have been consulted before the change - it was not discussed among senior members before implementation and I was not aware of it happening until I saw it in game

    I wasn't aware of it too unfortunately. Uploading next patch in 1-2 hours.
