In the original vanilla HCE Campaign, There were like, only 2 levels out of the whole game where you needed the flashlight and the scope night vision and those were a10 and a50. Maybe d40 in some stages i can't remember.
Since a50 is probably going to be snowy now instead of night, there's only going to be one level where flashlight is needed, and in SPV2 using the scope night vision made the whole thing turn whitish-green and I couldn't see a thing through it.
I don't know if turning flashlight really does make you more noticeable to enemy, but if it does, then i dont see why a flashlight is needed anymore its just like "Press Q to make yourself more noticeable to enemy" or "Press Q while zoomed to turn the screen completely whitish-green so you can't see a thing" since the flashlight and night vision is pretty much not needed in any of the levels anymore.
I was thinking that maybe on some levels, specifically d40 since the POA is like totalled you could make lights broken in some rooms to use flashlight more often, and maybe on level Keyes you could do the same since the ship is also heavily damaged, but since the you often pass those 'hangar bays' on covvie ships maybe you could make one of the bays completely secured by flood or covenant and have like a sniping part of the mission in those areas where you have to use night vision to see enemies.
Hmm... if you guys don't like the whole 'sniping mission' idea, maybe make sort of a 'sneaking past' mission. It's a bit hard to explain but more of like the whole room is dark and you can use the sniper's night vision to get past or something so that enemies don't see your flashlight and start shooting at you so you can use night vision to sneak past, maybe make the sniper silenced so you can snipe along the way unnoticed.
On second thoughts, I reckon the sneaking past mission would be better. You're supposed to be rushing to save Keyes in time and maybe you'd probably not want to attract too much attention idk.
