I just watched some of the older teasers from the Alpha and noticed that the lightning is very different there compared to how it is now in the full release.
I know adjustments has been made due to player feedback saying some areas are too dark.
I general, I support that. Right now you can see better. The daytime seems to be like sometime in the middle afternoon.
However, I really liked the "old" lighting as well.
How about introducing different daytimes:
- Afternoon - how it is right now
- Early morning / late evening - how it was in the Alpha Teasers
- Maybe even ad nighttime (I think you are already working on that)
Let me add, that I don't suggest "dynamic daytime", because round- and gametimes in this game are so short, that one setting will do for the full round/game. Plus you don't want to change meta in the middle of a game (especially in terms of competitive gameplay - some people might argue, that this would bring RNG to the game).
I think this would bring variety to the game, especially because there are "only" 6 maps right now.
