Yes yes! Remove colored lighting! [/troll]

Seriously, it's really hard to imagine how the new lighting will look. You only imagine what you miss from what you already see, but naturally overlook what might be added as impressions. About Rebirths philosophy: the way I understand it, it is WAY far from conservative; that's not the point. There is a good reason we tread extremely cautiously when introducing new elements into the game, and that's because the game conveys an idea and game-play that is immensely and impressionistically unique to say the least. In "fear" of spoiling this original idea PLUS impressions, whether it was originally intended OR NOT*, we try not to touch the game too much. However this is to be interpreted as a method of approach of development, not a final result. Which means, whatever changes give the game the same appeal-endresult, or even improve it in a revolutionary in the game's context manner, is positive and added into the game. There is a reason the game feels the way it feels, and upgrading it in terms of graphics and straightforward game modes/elements are only conventional changes that spoil the sport. Non-trivial things like a simple coloured lighting or transparency, which are insultingly simple, might upgrade a game in a way that it feels better, for what it already is.

My point is: the new lighting planned might add to the game in a way we cannot imagine; or it might not, like you said lloyd. For example, in trying to imagine, I for see how it would look opening a door, suddenly shedding light into a darkened room, instead of permanently shining through the door**. And what not. Plus the enjoyment of slightly better accuracy. Which might turn into a spectacle INSIDE Descent's universe/context/atmosphere etc. That is how I see Rebirth's philosophy. So in these terms, it's definitely to be tried, should there time be available to spent on that, and if the resources problem is solved...

*like we photography we judge by result: not matter if the photographer was just lucky, random, or really worked their way into a photo, if the photo is a marvel, it stays that way, even after we know how the photographer shot it.
**seldom seen in most default levels of Descent, as lit rooms (on the other side) usually have doors escorted with light strips
