[Xb1][2033] underwater lighting and crates

It’s been a while since I played but I’ve noticed that you can no longer stand on crates and the underwater lighting is really washed out, almost unable to see any colour.

Hi Dios1

Welcome to the forums and thank you for reporting these issues.

I believe both points you mentioned might be related to fixes that were issued for the game. For the crates the lack of collision is intended and was re-introduced recently to help prevent issues that could occur when a player stood on them or other items.

There was also a change in underwater reflections to prevent harsh light issues. However I’m not sure if this is completely related to your washed out colours. Would it be possible to see an underwater screenshot from your game? That way I can double check if the colours are the current intended level or if there is another issue occuring.

Regardless, I can pass feedback about these changes onto the team for you anyway :slight_smile:

Here you go

Hi Dios1,

Thank you for providing those images. I double checked with the team and can confirm this is not an intentional effect. I will write up report for the team with these details so they can look into this issue. Thank you for bringing it to our attention :slight_smile:
