Also, is there any way to combat the night blindness? Game comes to all but a halt for me when the sun goes down. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/memad.gif" alt="" /> Other than that, the game is amazing! Still trying to figure out what plants give augmentor from alchmey, i want UBAR POISON! Cant wait to see if there is going to be a DD2!!!

Thanks

the plant that is called augmentor gives augmentor <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />
Increase gamma in option menu, it won't be so dark. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/winkwink.gif" alt="" />

About augmentor, look here.
one increases you're sight range more-can't remember which though <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/biggrin.gif" alt="" />

Elven Sight is much better than Ranger Sight.


Elven Sight (Passive)
You can see further and thus target and attack your enemies from afar.

Level 1 Increase sight range by 2. Required level 1
Level 2 Increase sight range by 4. Required level 5
Level 3 Increase sight range by 8. Required level 9
Level 4 Increase sight range by 10. Required level 13
Level 5 Increase sight range by 12. Required level 17


Ranger Sight (Passive)
Grants you the keen eyesight of a ranger to help you see your enemies from afar.

Level 1 Increase sight range by 1. Required level is 6
Level 2 Increase sight range by 1. Required level is 12
Level 3 Increase sight range by 1. Required level is 18
Level 4 Increase sight range by 1. Required level is 24
Level 5 Increase sight range by 1. Required level is 30
Along with increasing Gamma I've found that upping the Darkness setting helps out with making the darker areas more playable for me.

They are both under the same option sub-menu...
Main Menu->Options->Visual

I play with Gamma 1.25 and Darkness 50, It let's me play pretty good even in poorly lit areas without losing the 'dungeon' feel by making it too bright.
Or you can do what most normal people do at night and sleep.
I asume ranger and elven sight work cumlative

Yes, they are cumulative. However, you should only get Ranger Sight if you have maxed Elven Sight (or plan to) but still want a larger sight radius, and have the extra skill points to spare.
