Dynamic campfire light?

This isn't a big deal, but is there any chance of adding dynamic campfire light in a future patch? Right now the light cast by campfires is the same as in vanilla SoC, which is a steady light that looks like it's being cast by an orange incandescent bulb. No flicker or variation in brightness, like a real fire has.

Some mods have added dynamic campfire light to SoC, so I know it can be done, though I don't know if the extra load would be excessive in LA.

Anyway, it's just a suggestion, but I think it would add a little more atmosphere to an already very atmospheric game.

Funny that you mention this, I was wondering about it myself. Considering that the XRay engine already can adjust shadows dynamically this should be just a matter of having the light source of the fire move "randomly" around its centre location a bit? I may have said something really stupid

I definitely think this would add atmosphere. Not sure about its effect on FPS.
