Recently people have whined, moaned, and pissed all over themselves about the fact that iD could somehow have a game take place in the future yet you didn't have night vision. Or about the fact that you could hold 10 guns and hundreds of rounds of ammo all at once, but couldn't hold flashlights for each of those guns at the same time. So some mods were created that let you attach a flashlight to your guns.

While it's a good idea if you're a girly man who plays the game at noon with the lights on, there are better solutions to the "problem."

This is a simple mod that changes all of the grenades in the game into throwable flares. These flares light up the surrounding area (and the area they fly through before landing...a cool effect similar to that of the imp fireball's lighting) in a yellowish red glow for a short period of time, allowing you to see better in those areas.

Upcoming versions will make it so you can use both grenades and flares as different entities.

I would prefer a combo of a nade and a flare. A.. Nare, if youd like to call it. Goes boom, and lights up the area for some time. There actully is a flare that if you throw it at any ally, they instantly die.

If you make the flashlight go away INSTEAD of the nades it would be a better. Grenades do damage against monsters! the flashlight is a bad idea from iD because, ofcorse, they should have atleast had it attached to their guns like in Q4. OR NIGHTVISION!!!

The military presence on the mars base was very basic, they were just keeping general infantry there for security reasons. The basic infantry there most likely weren't issued sophisticated technology like nightvision because it wasn't anticipated they would need it.
Just wanted to say that to all the people wondering why there's not nightvision on the base.

the grenades i found were most helpful against bigger creatures. Why change them into flares? Do they still explode?!?!

its kinda a waste for a Whole mod, but people wouldnt see it if it wasnt posted here most likely, and I think this is a great Idea. I personally hate when people play Horror games in the day with lights on, music in the backround *tisk tisk* you dont get the full advantage of dooms scary atmosphere, or sound. SO play at the night with all the lights off :P Love the new grenade, NICE IDEA!
