** There's an upgrade to map Dark Zones, but it's a NewGamePlus-exclusive upgrade.

*** What we call "night vision" technology uses either by amplifying infrared light, or by thermal imaging. And considering the Joint Project was prepared enough to consider mental parasites, they probably even considered imaging tech based on other types of radiation. But the Schwarzwelt being beyond our understanding, and filled with materials humanity has never encountered, it could be that the Dark Zones truly ARE completely devoid any emissions that the Demonicas can detect and amplify, ''including'' IR light or heat --and upgrades to make Dark Zones "visible" work precisely by analyzing the new kinds of radiation Forma emits and seeing how they can be translated into images on the visor.

** On the topic of the darkness, why is there no night vision in the Demonicas to begin with? You'd think, of all the things you could possibly prepare an all-purpose combat suit for, darkness would be one.

** There's definitely air --there would be no sound otherwise, and therefore you couldn't speak with demons-- but the air there might have a different composition incapable of sustaining human life. Hence why the squad needs to wear to don their helmets before disembarking from the ''Sprite'', and why that one teammate asphyxiated when the demons took his away.

* I haven't played the game, but I read through the entire trope list on the main page--if there is no air in the Schwarzwelt, how can Antlia be on fire? Is there an explanation for this in-game?

** Also, a crewman say they should just make [[spoiler:a backup, but Arthur himself says that he can't --and shouldn't-- return to Earth with all the knowledge he's gained (heavily implying that, like Gore, he has gained insight into mankind's future) because humanity would rely on him and abuse that knowledge. And he can't just delete it either because he ''needs'' it in order to successfully collapse the Schwarzwelt with the bomb and the Cosmic Eggs. The only "safe" backup they could bring back would be one without any knowledge of the Schwarzwelt... which would just be a pre-mission blank-slate, and pointless to collect.]]

** The Law faction specifically states that those "judged worthy" would be allowed to exist in their paradise, so there's that. And with [[spoiler:Mem Aleph dissolving herself into the Schwarzwelt]] in order to better control the process of creation, it's possible that she did the same. [[spoiler:The force of creation within the Cosmic Eggs seems to change the nature of the Schwarzwelt itself; as evidenced by the Law and Chaos endings, the WorldWreckingWave that engulfs the Earth not only "disassembles" (as the original plasma wall did) but also ''reconstitutes'' into the winner's image. If you get hit with the Chaos wave, and you're judged strong enough, you're reassembled in the new world, while getting hit with the Law wave would judge your worth and remake you into a mindless worshipper]].

*Why doesn't your automap work in dark areas? The software should be able to tell where you've moved, and isn't that ''exactly'' the sort of situation a mapping utility is meant to counteract?
