I, too, would like to know which .ini file you put/find the settings to change the brightness. They are exceptionally bright. Thanks!

Where do I make the

changes at? The wall torch is too bright for me.

I dont have anything helpfull to add other than I too am getting the crashes. Though I recently discovered that S+ has a standing torch that does the same thing as auto torch (slightly nicer GUI too) so I will be using that from now on. Anyone that already has S+ doesnt really need this mod.

There is a discussion opened by AgroViking that would be a better place to post about this. I've spent most of the day troubleshooting and I'll put my findings there.

Another little tidbit of information (not trying to spam here, trying to help track it down)... I also have a mod called Wyvern Nests Plus. This mod has spawners, which are basically just objects that create a domed spawn area around them. I recently noticed that when these spawners are placed close to an auto torch they'll get stuck in a "loading" state. If you remove the auto torches from the area and then place the spawners they'll activate properly.

Again, just something weird I noticed occurring around the Auto Torches.

...and no, it's not out of date mods. I experience the crashes myself and I always keep the server and my client fully updated (server updates twice daily, client as soon as an update is available). Server is also fully dedicated and hosted out of a data center, so it has nothing to do with those "Host your own ark server" nonsense servers.

We've been experiencing this issue for at least a week, possibly even longer. Limited to client crashes only and fairly unpredictable. Sometimes you'll crash when you place a torch (like I just did). Sometimes you'll crash when you get in visual range of the torches. Sometimes you'll crash when they activate, or deactivate. Sometimes you'll crash for virtually no reason at all.

Can also confirm crashes are happening. Didn't experience any client-side crashes on our freshly wiped server until people started placing the torches.

As a bit of additional information, I noticed strange behavior with the auto torches when it comes to their "area of influence". At first I thought it was an interaction between Auto Torches and Structures Plus (S+), since the auto torches wouldn't let you "shoot" anything near them.

That said, it goes beyond S+ as it seems the auto torches "grab" the focus of the player. Even if you aren't focused on the torch the game thinks you are. I was standing close to a torch (off to my left about 5 virtual feet) and issued an admin command to destroy an admin-placed object. Instead of destroying the object I was looking at, the torch off to my left was destroyed.
