I'm saying it because recently an insane ammount of people have been making their custom stories full conversions for absolutely pointless reasons. The flashlight was made for white night, yet for some reason now every person and their mother feels the need to use it. Second, making your custom story a full conversion by NO MEANS makes your custom story any better. In fact, i've seen custom stories that are way better then a lot of full conversions. You can make a terrible custom story and still have it be a full conversion. Also the whole point of full conversions has seem to be lost as of late. It's so that you can change a large ammount of things in amnesia for the benefit of their story, and for some reason that defenition has changed to throwing in a flashlight and a new menu. If making it a full conversion doesn't benefit your story in any other way then those two things, then it's pointless. Now i'm not saying ALL full conversions are bad, take example sciophobia. That story is changing a TON of things because it makes sense to the story and make the over all experience better. Not just some small little things that will make little to no difference.
Well now that I have that rant that's been gathering in me for the last month, I think imma go eat a sammich.
Now I have nothing against what you are saying, somewhat it is true. But the flashlight was not made for White Night. It was created just for the purpose of it. I thought that too. When I messaged Tanshaydar asking for permission to use the flashlight, he pointed out it wasn't his. He only created the batteries. FUN FACT FOR EVERYONE
. And plus, there is no saying I won't change the game massively, I just started and don't have many future plans for this. Hell, I could create 100 new monsters, which I'm probably not going to do until I learn how to create one. I'm new to Maya so yeah...but this is just the beginning. I added the flashlight because I wanted a modern day mod. Good day sir!
