i mean, does the flashlight light more than the headlamp? or they are both equal?

the flashlight has a much shorter range and radius compared to the headlamp and vice versa

Do NPCs also utilize these higher lumen/brighter flashlights and headlamps? If you're using the Stealth mod, NPCs can see each other's lamps and will act accordingly.

yes other NPCs do utilize the new headlamps, also i havent tested out the Stealth mod but i think it should work without any problems since my addon mainly just changes the texture, radius and range.

ive tested the addon on dx8 and for some reason the textures of the variants just doesnt seem to show up, only the Anomaly headlamp texture does. im currently trying to find a fix so it works on dx8. what i can tell you is that it does work flawlessly on d9, dx10 and dx11.

I'm using generic mod enabler and your addons seems to conflict with Broomstick and sharpstick.
It's says "items_devices.ltx" has already been altered by the "01. Boomsticks and Sharpsticks 23 Apr 1.5.1"
Is it safe to replace it with your addon?
I'm still new in modding and I'm really sorry if my question sounds stupid

Gave it a test and it's working, both with BaS and Stealth mods, but a few edits needed.

1. pick any version of Nicer Flashlights Addon.
2. copy "textures" folder into \Anomaly-1.5.1\gamedata
3. go to \Anomaly-1.5.1\gamedata\configs\items\items\ and make a backup of items_devices.ltx
3. manually edit already existing items_devices.ltx (created by BaS) with lines from item_devices.ltx (of Nicer Flashlights addon)
4. Look for "Flashlight" and "Torch" categories.

Also, be careful 'cos BaS already made few changes and added lines, make sure to keep'em otherwise mods will conflict.

Can upload and share edited .ltx for the reference.

Just a heads up for your next update. Please format the "Alternative" sound file packed in the mod, in the proper Stalker format, which is 44.1Hz, 32-bit, Mono channel. Otherwise you gonna crash peoples' games.

Thanks for the mod!

Really like the police one, kinda wanted to nerf my headlamp so used the flashlight texture for the headlamp too, now traveling at night feels more intense, thanks for this.

Hey mate, I loved your flashlights! I'm using your Unity texture and I tweaked the .ltx file to port it to OGSR/SoC platform. Do you mind if I publish my rip-off there!? Just think the flashlights there are seriously lacking and your flashlights are really a breath of fresh air. Let me know if you are ok with it and I'll publish.

Look nice, but there are more pics then options to choose from in the mod, so it's very hard to install the one you want. Would be much easier if you put a pic in the corresponding folders.

Is there anyway to change the flashlight tint to be blue-ish? Kinda sick of the default amber light. Loving this mod, btw!

ANNOUNCEMENT: this addon will be put on hold for about a month or two as my laptop is currently ******** itself right now. i should be able to get ahold of a newer, more powerful system and then i'll continue to update this.

Thank you so much for the mod.
I got the imperfect texture with blue light and flicker effect running together! - WinMerge magic.

Also had to use WinMerge to patch this mod with EFT Style Re-position [Boomsticks&Sharpsticks;] patch and Artefact Renovation BaS & Trader Overhaul Patch lol.

just fyi, it loads 2 or 3 texts files at a time, side by side, so you can compare and contrast. It highlights differences between them and all ya gotta do is right-click and select what changes to overwrite or send over. Real easy and self explanatory.

the idea of making a small little showcase video for this mod has been haunting my mind since the last 2 months while im busy with more school but i havent been able to find a proper way to showcase it. obviously its not going to be a slideshow since thats just boring as heck. it needs to be something not distracting and rather calm.
