Single player:

Player throws strobe and it is as bright as the SUN!

Non dedicated host:

Host throws strobe and it disappears.
Connected client throws strobe and it works for that client (I assume others as well).
Host sees other client's strobes, but the light is as bright as the SUN!

Screenshot? Demo mission? Better ticket header? Game version?

Looks like it's even worse on a deticated lol. It is atleast consistant there with looking like the sun copy pasted on the ground to all clients. I'll take a SS I guess lol. It's pretty easy to recreate. Throw a strobe on the ground at night. Latest beta

Tested in singleplayer and the IR strobe is still bright.
Result attached.
I'm using CO version 1.52.72291.

Edit: Tested in MP with CO windows dedicated server version 1.52.72291 and the results are the same.

Tested without mods or addons.
