Don't be offended by what I'm about to say but this was probably the dumbest reply I've seen here in a while.
It's pretty clear that something isn't right with his game from the pictures he provided... it's not the flashlight.

Kinda looks like he was playing in some mutation like "Darkness Falls". Maybe it's something with his graphics card drivers? (I'm just taking a wild guess at it tbh)

It seems to be on first maps where it starts off dark and blends to lighter mine gets stuck in the "dark mode" another example 1st map FTR my flashlight was on

This is a well known exploit where SI players can induce darkness on the best survivors displays.

Is your SMAC working properly ?

I have the latest version and all modules seem to be working properly, It has happened when I am the only player on the server, like i say at the start where it blends from dark to light mine seems to get stuck half way and remains dark.
As no one else is reporting this Ill presume it is my own problem so I may do a reinstall .

I just had it happen after being boomed the darkness stayed at around 50% darker
Can be fixed by swapping to infected and back again

There are several threads about the dark screen problem that seemed to just start. Looks like you and others will need to wait it out.
