I love that you brought that up.


I wouldn't say look ugly, but it's more for making maps look like paintings instead of places where players roam around in.

Lighting effects work best when they're subtle. :)

Luna: I agree! Unfortunately lighting effects are almost never subtle, in the hands of RPG Maker creators.

Hmmm, wise words here. I guess I'm not the only one who thinks they can be awkward (although I still use them :/)

I go out of my way to not use them. The closest I ever get is a very subtle screen tint to simulate the idea of darkness without making the screen hard to see.

subtle lights work well; just make sure when using lighting to keep in mind what eyes can and can't handle. I'd hope the blinding lights aren't seen as good to the majority xD

Looking in any screenshot thread seems to convince me everyone loves the crazy hyper bright lights and super dark shadows. It's insane, like a nightmare world. As a graphic design major, I weep for the future of game art.

Some maps in the Screenshot thread make my eyes bleed, tbh.

Well, I'm glad that I'm not the only one that thinks so.

I still think that even those who employ the cringe-worthy light effects only do it to follow the herd and don't actually like to be blinded...I'm hoping.

They did lighting really well with Dragon's Dogma. The Night battles with your little lamp are one of the most intense things ever. Have you ever fought a giant ass Gryphon that just disappears into the darkness? Pretty crazy.
