Another question for you - how the heck do you heal up? I have no medic, but I did manage to steal a BMP-2 Ambulance and get it back to base. I was hoping it might have Hello Kitty Bandaids inside or something, but I don't see any options for healing.
Never mind. Apparently there's only one sweet spot on the ambulance and the way I had parked it meant I couldn't stand there. I'm all healthy again now.

I'm having problem with a bug- its always pitch black. Night and day. I can see fine with NVG goggles, but when I take them off, I can't see a thing. Not even fire from explosions or even my own muzzle flash.
(Tested at midday and midnight.)
Are you using the skiptime feature? I would skip an hour and see if that helps. It will reset the weather module which is the only thing I think might be causing your problem
I have tried that, so far I find that it only occurs on certain maps, and that it is temporarily fixable by restarting ARMA.
Tried some other game mods and scenarios without issue. Made sure that LOST was the only active mod (aside from some maps). I reloaded and restarted several times, and was only able to load a LOST map a couple of times without the black screen.
Weird. Is it a specific map? Is like to try to reproduce this. And it's a new game? I'll need as much info as I can to figure it out because I don't ever get this issue
Re: the black screen issue....
I am using the ArmA II Launcher program. On a whim, I changed my "Default World" Option from "None" to Chernarus. I had this option checked as none previously because it allowed the game to load up faster.
Since making that change, I have started three different LOST missions on two different maps and every one of them loaded up properly. No black screen.
(Shrug). Not definitive yet, and changing that option might be coincidental, but it's another data point.
As an aside, thanks for this mission and for Apocalypse. I love open world single player missions. Your hard work is much appreciated. Hopefully this issue will stay sorted for me.
I'd like to report the same thing. It definitely seems like something going on with the weather module somehow. When it's occurred for me, I get lens flare drawing from the correct sun position if I'm using the NVG, but when I take them off, it disappears and it's pitch black everywhere again. NVG/IR scopes function and will actually draw trees/etc as brighter from the correct sun angle, just not 'lit' lit without a scope. I've got a completely clean Arma/OA install and I've never set my map to load 'none' at startup on this install. I never saw this when I was using OA Build 90242 but it started from the first new game I started on 94364. It seems intermittent though so perhaps this is a coincidence. I've seen it happen on Chernarus 3 times now, but test games on Utes haven't exhibited the problem (yet). Lost is installed as an expansion in OA and there are no other non-bis mods ticked and no pbos other than the lost one and the lost missions.

Thanks, is the 94364 build a new one just released? Is that the build others have?
Either way, I will look at an option of, from the menu, turning off the weather. I did not write that code, so it is doubtful i could figure out the issue, and turning it off would be my real only option. Perhaps I'll post a question on RUBE's weather module thread.

Oh, one other possible cause of this... is this only happening on a restart/ new game? Or did it happen in mid-game? Thanks
