Sunset/Sun rise time in CMBS

Recommended Posts

Just want to know what is the sunset and sun rise time at CMBS? Is that a fix time in the whole game period (June to Aug)?

 

I started a scenario , the first turn is at 5:00am. Wondering when my pixeltruppen will take off their NV googles .

Yeh, I've occasionally built a dawn scenario, changed the date, then WHOA! What happened! :o You especially notice this in CMFB where its mid winter in the northern latitudes where the sun NEVER seems to come up then  it sets at an absurdly early time.

You have your sun rise and set question answered so all that is left is to tell you the limitation that you will no doubt discover: The troops will not remove or set their NV goggles. Sadly when a scenario starts in day light and gets dark troops will not engage their NV goggles. Same as the other way around, if he game starts in darkness they will not disengage their googles when daylight makes its appearance.

wear sunglass at night, I like this idea

I grew up in Canada in the 80s so when I think of sunglasses at night I think of this:

Googles?  Wait they are wearing google glasses? I thought they were night vision!

What is the effect on troops if they are caught with their NVGs on when the sun comes up?

Their eyeballs sizzle.

It's a good question.  When the sun rises, does the game treat the troops as if they now have removed the NVG goggles and have normal vision?  Have very rarely played a scenario featuring troops with NVG's that starts in dark and ends in daylight.

No, soldiers don't take off (or put on) their night vision goggles halfway through a scenario. NGVs are 'gear' items assigned at scenario start.

The question is whether there is any effect of wearing NVG in daylight if the troops start off with them on at night.  Does the game calculate as if the goggles are removed in daylight (even tho' the graphics show goggles).  Am assuming it does since there are no reports of weird vision/spotting issues.
