This is amazing. You even went the extra mile of letting us throw them if we want. This mod is gold.

I love it! The only minor thing is that the hud model seems to be quite far away compared to the pistols. But I guess that's a holdover from Dead Air right? Either way, the fact that they can be thrown and all have different strengths really makes this really useful. Just glowsticks woulda been enough for me, but useful glowsticks is even better.

А скрипт расписали, будто это супер стратегическая фича, зачем изобретать велосипед, когда у dead air есть два похожих скрипта и буквально 5 строчек там и там, зачем всё так усложнять.

The glowsticks share the same bug with other glowing objects that got introduced into Anomaly with the 3D PDA. Once you throw them, unless you have PDA or something under the O key equipped, the sticks themselves are dimmed and barely visible (when PDA is inactive the game turns off glowing for the PDA screen and every other glowing object, like TVs and such). The light aura still exists though, so the glowsticks are usable at least. Still, does anyone know how to fix this bug?
Here's screen comparison to show what I'm talking about.

Hey, I made a patch that extends the MCM menu, adding throwing distance as option and allowing to chose different keybinds for throwing. The changes/additions are all commented as "dph patch", for easy merging. Feel free to use it. No Russian translation yet though.

Blue glowstick have fast shadow flicker on hands and weapon. Tested on fresh vanilla.

Can confirm this, you can reproduce this by equipping the blue glowstick with a handgun and look around in a circle until you can see the flickering on the shadow and side of the gun.

There are 4 areas in your view circumference where it starts to flicker: north, south, east and west

EDIT: apparently this is a common and normal shader bug in vanilla too, so unfortunately it's not the fault of the mod. The blue glowstick seem to be more noticeable with the flickering though, but it seem to do it with the other color as well if you look closely.

However I found a new bug, if you hold the glowstick and hold F for a bit (instead of tapping F) to pick something off the ground, that will cause a bug that will disable almost all of your inputs so you can't use inventory, aim, swap weapon, reload, etc.

Might have something to do with the hold F function to throw the glowstick causing this error. Only way to fix is to reload your save.

Жаль, что они пропадают потому что в ДА они бесконечные как и керосиновая лампа. А так да классно что проделали такую работу, всегда нравилось в ДА обустраивать свою базу таким освещением. Особенно когда в ДА шел 50 или 60 день в Зоне, когда сталкеров очень мало, а мутантов очень много становится и такое чувство, что играешь в ПВ.

No, generally only if an addon has files in the directory "gamedata/shaders" do you need to worry about that.

It says it overwrites quite a bit of files used by BaS. Will I encounter any gamebreaking bugs if I play with both?

If you install BaS on top of the glowstick mod it should work, but you won't be able to buy them from traders and they won't be a part of your starting loadout. You'll have to look for them in stashes and on dead stalkers.

Are they only supposed to have their "power" drained when equipped? Glowsticks don't really do that but i can imagine there's a good reason why it's set this way. Also would love to see an option added for another glowstick to not automatically be put into your hand from your inventory.

According to the internet,

"Whilst the molecules of the dye are always present in the solution, the hydrogen peroxide and the diphenyl oxalate are slowly used up by the reaction, until one runs out and the reaction ceases – and it’s at this point that the glow stick will stop emitting its glow."

weird bug, they can't be placed in stashes (even player made ones). Just drops them on the ground. Also tried just going into the arena with them and it drops them on spawn.

The idea is excellent, but unfortunately, it doesn't work with "Mad Mags 1.5.1-15", which, in my humble opinion, is more important in priority, at least for those that enjoy "Anomaly Magazines".

Is a patch possible?

I've installed your mod via MO2 on clean Anomaly installation. The only other mod I currently have is MCM, which successfully detects your addon. Also, when I start a new game, one glowstick is in my inventory.

Now, the issue is .... The throwing seems to be bugged:

1. I equip the glowstick (O)
2. My default use button is F
3. "Throw key" in MCM is set to "USE"

However, when I press/hold F, nothing happens? I can drop it from the inventory though.

Seems to be some initialization bug. Even though it's set in the MCM, you have to select the option and "set" it again (just click "Use" in the MCM dropdown). It works after doing this.

Awesome addon, 10/10 rated!, I never got around to playing Dead Air so this is new to me and it's really cool!. Only thing is I think they should stop working after 2-3 hours, to encourage keeping multiple on hand. I love using them to mark areas I've cleared. Or simply light up an section or corner I have not checked out yet. Also useful to throw and illuminate enemy positions during night fighting. Before these I was forced to either use my headlamp and expose my position for that visibility, or be late/end game and have one of the NVG sets. Now ontop of always having packs of bolts on me I have some of these glowsticks too!.

Below is short video examples as well as " Clean " no HUD HD sceenshots of each color glowstick. Feel free to list it in description or use it as an example or w/e. With all due respect The picture you have in description doesn't show the true vibrancy and depth to the colors in the glowsticks!.
