Default GWX night vision question for experienced GWX players

In the SC7 single mission and in the campaign, the watch crew can spot ships 14-16k meters away. No clouds, starry night, calm weather. Moon in the SC7 mission, none in the campaign but I believe moonlight isn't modeled in SH3 anyway.


I have the night vision option checked in Hsie's/Stiebler's applied patches. Stock GWX env. files.


Is this normal in GWX ?

Thanks, I have that on my NYGM install, but kind of like the stock GWX environment so don't have it installed on it.

Just seem strange getting those vision distances.

Tried this with the same mission, and crew still sees ships 14-16k away. Doesn't seem right for any sort of night vision.

According to the readme, this sensors.dat change is for your crew's visuals.
Also according to the readme, to change what I'm talking about, the ai visuals, the ai_sensors.dat would be changed.


But I think I'll just leave both alone; probably create more problems than solve.


Gotten to the point where I charge at flank speed at an escort in a surface night attack to see if they even react.
What prompted this thread was I was able to ram an escort without it reacting to me in any way.....

Yeah, I've done that several times already. Keeps happening. It's always after a save reload though, so maybe that has something to do with that.
Game runs fine, but who knows.
Thanks for your help anyway.
