    Will this also increase the radius of detection by enemies ?

      No unless this mod also changes the vanilla pip boy sneak effect which I doubt it does.

    So sometimes in my game as I am walking around like at night for instance... this awesome light works great however on the ground only certain blocks or sections get illuminated as I walk by them. Same thing as when I look at a burning fire in a trash can. When I move my camera at certain angles back and forth, the light emitting from the can pops in and out... So I am basically having a similar effect with light as I traverse across the land. This only happens in the wasteland outside and not when I am inside a dungeon... Has anyone else experienced something like this? Its difficult to explain. Would REALLY like to know a way for light from this pip boy to register and show up correctly on all terrain surfaces

      Most likely a game engine limitation.
      This flashlight mod mentions something similar: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout3/mods/15003
      Under the known issues section and calls it the "only one light allowed" bug.

    Works exactly as advertised. Precisely what I was looking for!

    I always thought that the default PipBoy light in Fallout 3 was way too dim. This mod helped out so much, would definitely recommend.

    I've only just now noticed a problem I'm having using this mod, after many hours of gameplay:

    If the PipBoy light is on and I hit TAB to go to the PipBoy menu, when I leave the menu the PipBoy light will have gotten brighter (by about 50% or so it looks like). The light level resets to normal if I deactivate and reactivate the light again. The shift is particularly noticeable when in dark interior spaces.

    I'm doing some testing to see if it's the result of a conflict with another mod (other lighting mods I have installed are Realistic Interior Lighting and Xepha's Dynamic Weather), but if anyone reads this could you do a quick check and see if you get this problem also?

    EDIT: Adjusting load order doesn't seem to help. Whether I load it in the highest position or the lowest, the problem is still there. I'm removing it for now but if anyone has any suggestions I would really appreciate it.

    EDIT 2: I tested another PipBoy light solution (Thebullfrog' LED Pip-Boy Light), which does not exhibit this issue. So it seems to be related to this specific mod.

      EXACT same problem. Trying "Spotlight" now. Since it has 3 different brightness levels, and a spotlight.

      edit: spotlight is waaaay too dim for my liking, even at it's highest setting. Now I actually like the way this mod gets brighter, just wish i could control the brightness levels easier.

      edit2: Apparently the problem is NOT cause by this mod. I used the G.E.C.K. to change the magnitude of the "Spotlight" mod, and with "smoothlight" removed completely, I still get the same problem. With over 200 mods installed it's a little hard to keep track of it all.

      I had the same problem. I gave the 'PipBoy Light' mod a go, and that has no such issue.
