    Bug Description: Campfires do not produce area light - as in they do not light up objects or the world around them.

    They themselves are bright, but are not emitting world light.

    The light reflects off of my character.

    I am a client on the server, and the host and other player have this same bug.

    It does not matter who crafted the campfire or who starts it.



     Detailed steps to reproduce the bug:


    1) Place a campfire 

    2) Turn it on at night

    3) Notice no light


    Actual result: The campfire does not light up objects or world around it


    Expected result: The campfire should light up the area around it

    cant repro, as you can see i am seeing light from the campfires at different spots. i appear to be about same distance as you were in your screen shot. also note that any light when/as you move away from it will seem to lose the light as that is by design but that has been a case for several alphas now.





    do you have anything else to help in this matter?

    I tried again and changed my settings. I did a SP in Nav. I was right up next to the fire and as you can see, there is no light. I re-validated files just to make sure, also reset my graphics card settings just in case.

    (( There are a few others with the same issues mentioned in general discussion, Hopefully they file bug reports too))

    Something wasn't cleaned up properly.

    From your log:


    Failed to load 'G:/SteamLibrary/steamapps/common/7 Days To Die/7DaysToDie_Data/Plugins/XInputInterface32.dll', expected x64 architecture, but was x86 architecture. You must recompile your plugin for x64 architecture.
