At high end (cards/settings), when you activate your flashlight, it actually projects a light, into the world from your position, and can make a big difference.

The problem here, is that mid, and low end cards (or settings) can't handle that light being projected from your position. So we fake it, by projecting a brighter texture out, onto objects in front of you. But it doesn't work as well as the actual light. On REALLY low end, you don't see anything I think.

So, since our low end customers essentially don't get a light, I have to make the map bright enough that you can at least see a little bit where ever you go. It sucks on higher end though, because the map isn't dark enough to make the flashlight necessary.
