SRV Lights out

Postby tinnitus » Mon Feb 25, 2019 7:39 am

How do a Commander change the default setting for the SRV Lights from default On to off. Not that ON is a big deal but when your sneaking around for a planetary outpost mission and need to take a quick break after exiting when you re-enter the game your lights make you visible. Hope I missed something in control setting as opposed to no it is not possible.
Regards

I've scoured the game options and I haven't seen any settings (in game or in the menus) to set a default for SRV lights (or night vision now). If anyone knows how to do that (or needs their official E:D suggestion bumped), let us know.

Not great for immersion, but as far as I've been able to tell, lights don't seem to alert anything anywhere.

They are a three mode button.

Off-normal-hi it cycles.

A point though.
Npcs don't care, they see you no matter what.

You can be pitch black in the pitch black.
An anaconda flying over you will still nail you with plasma's and rails at 1k+ if its triggered into engage mode.

Yeah always thought that that was unfair - I'll just pretend that the lights are off. Thanks for checking rxay579 be nice to have that option. Thanks for your feedback TorTorden I've been playing too much reading things that are not there.

I've been playing with NPC interdiction - accepting a couple of those 3t cargo runs for 1.5 to 2 million your almost certain to get interdicted. I try to spot the NPC on sensors and maneuver to keep the NPC off my 6 but as soon has the NPC has a shot the interdicting dance begins. It is fun, I'm not complaining but when your in the Black be great if that could work for ya.
