Who right in the mind uses tinderboxes to light up environment while there are light bulbs around?

Posted by Tanshaydar on Jul 8th, 2011

Hi all! Since White Night is a total conversion, and a huge jump from 1800s to 2000s, tinderbox mechanic was never useful for this mod. After starting to use Flashlight and changing inventory screen a bit, I was in search of replacing tinderbox mechanic for a more modern use. In forum section there were some good suggestions, and I was thinking of flares at first. However, it turned out to be light bulbs to replace tinderboxes as TheGroovyMule suggested. So, credits goes to him for this idea.

Here's a video to show how it works:

Now, only thing left in inventory screen is insanity. Don't worry, I'm here to heal your mind.

By the way, if you haven't did it yet, please vote for White Night in Frictional Game's Official Amnesia Custom Story Contest.

The idea is great, but I think the counter is disappearing in front of the light bulb icon. Maybe you can change the color of the number.

It's visible in the game, just not that visible in the video. I'm not gonna scatter dozens of light bulbs around either. Two at most at a time :)
