I would pay cartel coins for a personal Area flashlight that could be activated in dark area for a period of time and goes on CD... some of the instance are just too dark for me to see and I don't want to change my graphical settings as it lessens the look of realism in the game...

Like a Toy based on the floating light probes from Blood Hunt?
That would be awesome.

I would love this, but not on a CD. This should be a standard utility to aid in visibility.

This would indeed be a cool toy idea! I support this proposal. As an aside, I do wish there were more portions of the game that were a lot more dark.

Thanks for your support and that is also a very good idea!

I like the idea too but I'm curious----where would you use it? Aside from Kaon I can only think of the Rakghoul tunnels.

There are a few places that are pretty dark where it might be helpful, especially for those with vision challenges. The one that I think of first is the part of the Nathema flashpoint where you go through the cave and the tunnels before the final fight sequences. It can be dark. The rakghoul tunnels, as you said. Chapter 7 of KOTET in the sanitarium springs to mind. The swamps in KOTFE.

It also could be helpful in some areas where it's not necessarily very dark but a lot of dark colors dominate the landscape, like the Dark Temple on Dromund Kaas and the Rakata and Voss temples.

I always have to run my gamma at max. A floating light tool would really help me turn that down a bit and still see what's happening. It would also add some ambiance to the locations.

Thinking about it, this is the only MMO I've played much that doesn't have a built-in themed light source for toons.

Drop your graphic settings to low and there's no darkness to speak of. Those caves on Ossus look like broad daylight inside. Same with Blood Hunt etc.

The "provided" ones also exist in Blood Hunt and the instanced area of the CZ-198 daily areas, but there are some pretty gloomy areas in Imp Taris, and even one small area in the part of Coruscant where the Trooper goes to deactivate the nerve gas.
