    What happens:
    -The whole map and sky goes completely Black.
    -Your only source of light is your flashlight, Lights, and lamps. Will be available to all players
    -This goes from the start of the round to the end which means you have to build in the dark.
    - You cannot see health bars or names. The only feedback you'll get is when you damage props

    Song suggestions for event:

    Name: cycerin - Landfall

    Phase: Battle

    Name: Christian Marcus - The Mansion of madness

    Phase: Build

    Name: zeroScar - RE

    Phase: Battle

    Name: Capcom - Echo in the Night

    Phase: Build

    Community can fill in the rest.

    The conspect is unique and would defiently shake things up. I love that you want to involve lamps since it'snever really been a thing but building in the dark sounds like a horrible experience, especially outside of a room. I hate to be negative since people like you that actively suggesting things are a part of why flood is so good.

    Feel like the lamps would be overwhelming on the servers. Having a dark map, while a unique idea, can interfere with moderation during build/fight phase, since it would be visibly difficult to react efficiently to prop mingers, sabotagers, trapers, you name it.

    Why not include a unique command for the Blackout event like !darksee which allows you to see in the dark?
    (but i don't think it's that easy to add commands tho)

    I remember this idea being discussed....sometime. Can't remember when. I like the idea, it'd be a nice change of pace for flood.

    The Idea is pretty good, but as Frogee said Building in the Dark is not the best.
    Maybe because its a Blackout, it will happen once the actual Get On your Boat Phase starts.
    A real Blackout is you arent prepared for it

    It's kinda cool but i wouldnt put it on flood since its not even connected to the game itself

    Maybe the flashlight is a game changer idk but I already struggle to build sometimes because lack of space but I cant imagine building in the dark :crying:

    The concept itself isn't bad at all but it does need some improvement.

    Here are some of the negatives,

    -Building in the dark
    -Can't see past a certain radius with the flashlight so during the build phase players props getting smashed together would be a pretty common thing.

    I dont think this would work out very well because people could just memorize where other players boats are and go off of their memory to kill the boats.

    I would LOVE to see this in-game after some improvement seing as it's still a very solid idea.

    To me, that's the whole shtick. Building in the dark would be hard yes but that's the whole point. Events like haste, rope, and prop roulette exist to hinder players building. And that's why flood is fun.

    I like the idea but tbh i think the lag would be too much with 40-50 lamps.

    This, the game starts lagging with 2 lamps already, not talking about 10-ish and above...
