Remove Light map 'Off' function

....
Title says it,
Why is there a light map off function?
It gives the user an advantage over players playing with light map on,
and that's why (correct me if I'm wrong) it is not allowed in tournaments.

In my opinion we're better off without it. Smile

well this is a stupid post. removing choices? it's like if they had a colorblind mode. most people wouldnt use it because the colors are worse in colorblind mode, but Hard if i was colorblind i'd want a colorblind mode.

Why not just cut all of it out and have darkness mode. Nobody can see anything.

Well, I'd have to disagree with having a mandatory Light Map "ON" slipped into this game even though it gives ZERO performance differences in terms of FPS or anything else.

I've had terrible video cards in the past that could barely manage 32FPS at 1024x768 and lightmap on or off made ZERO difference with my FPS. Tested this with multiple systems/setups.

But the vast majority of the people who play this game are NOT on the competitive side of things. It's like... all pubs lol

I started playing in 2007, and in 2009 I started scrimming and found out soon enough that to play in NAT's or official tourneys at the time you NEEDED to play with lightmap ON and at the time I had it off due to visual effects. Plasma was like IMPOSSIBLE to see people in, but I got used to having it on since then and have always had it on.

This thread makes me wanna try it off L0L

...

I have before, but the game looks all grey and BLEH and I just go back to lightmap on.

Personal preference it should remain, but of course have it be a rule in tourneys and try to enforce it in regular scrims, such as asking to post SS of the current game. Dunno.

It's never been a problem before, because when it comes down to the good stuff, you always have to have it on so, it's whatever.

As long as it's toggle-able it should not be removed..
Besides when teams wanna get somewhere their gameplay ingame can be monitored and players who use light map off competitively are usually frowned upon
