The variety of atmospheric lighting effects with such varying & spectacular sunsets / sunrises is one of my favorite aspects of the game...

I can't decide if it reminds me more of apricots or peaches.  Hmm... someone's hungry for fresh fruit... 🙂

I was at Trader Joe's yesterday and stared at the "Apriums" and "Plucots" for a while - apparently one is more apricot-ish and one is more plum-y. That sunset makes me think of both. 😂

View from the plane - I don't think I've ever seen this kind of sunset before.

As much as I love lighting in TLD, this frame informed me of something I did not realize was missing from TLD. Appropriate back lighting, on some distant objects. There is no aura of light coming around the mountains, no light beams, granted the lighting in this game is supposed to be muted and subtle. This is missing. There is no way, physically, that no light would spill over or wash through, the sides of these mountains. Light should still be surging up through the valleys here. Something is not quite right, imho.

crepuscular rays~had to look it up.

At this time of day, since the sun is so far beneath the horizon, I don't think there would be a lot of illumination. I looked up some IRL sunsets and they seem to be similar to this shot. I also have the graphics set pretty low, so there might be some normal details missing...but in general, I agree they've made some very intentional stylistic choices that sacrifice some of the realism. 

Something I've noticed about the muted/subtle light is that it actually makes the game more challenging. If there were tons of light rays illuminating the scenery at sunset, it would be much easier to navigate the world and notice more subtle details. Like in my screenshot, you can barely see the Mountaineer's Hut in the bottom right.

Also showcasing the point I attempt to convey, the face of this mountain should have some sort of residual lighting going on, imho. Some texture should be visible on the side closest to us.

That feeling when... half of you wants to feel badly for the poor guy, and the other half just wants his boots, hat, and coat...screen_2b0e8c1b-8c6c-4b30-a962-4e612e95563d_hi.thumb.png.6f53223f06ef1f9503004a32c4e74f70.png

This is the most beautiful game I've ever played. Period.

Such a strange moment.  I don't have anything to chop wood. I have no food. I'm running out of water. I really don't want to go down. I have a little ammunition and a lot of wolves. But this radiance made me forget about everything. This is weird.

This is what happens after you drop a decoy that you've treated with ghost pepper extract.

Offer him a tin of milk?

*condition too low.  Wolf gets food poisoning.*

All you need is a wolf leash and you have a free flashlight! 🙂

Also, there's no Day 12 in this calendar. I don't judge, when you're stocking your bunker you probably have to cheap out on some things like off-brand calendars that have 30 days measured out but labeled 1-31 but skip from day 11 to 13.

Ahahahaha! That's awesome! Great eye for detail you have there, I probably would have missed that.  >.<

How did you pull that off? I've never used the flare gun, so may be missing the obvious... (Very cool, though!)
