While I would like night cycles . . . . I only want them if they have some meaningful effect.

NPC's need to go to sleep or do other things. New monsters/wildlife need to come out and play. New quests need to become available. etc.

If all that is done then night cycles are fantastic . . . but its a lot of work and I can understand why Larian hasn't implemented it (yet) .

I would bet money its on their list of 'things we would like to do'. So hopefully it will happen.

But if they don't have the time and resources to do it right then its better they skip it. Just making the sky dark doesn't cut it.

Right now I'd just be really happy if dead bodies and blood disappeared when you do a long rest.
