The lighting changes in 1.05 have made the night a lot brighter.
To the point where it’s not worth using a light source at all.
Would you considering increasing the brightness of light sources to make them worthwhile? Perhaps like the lumins mod?
Or... I don’t know if it’s possible, but could interiors be made darker than outside? So that you still need light to navigate? That would be more realistic. If you can’t make them darker, a good compromise would be removing items from the vicinity menu at night... so that you need a light source to loot.
Also, since nights are now brighter, please consider removing the personal night light. It’s seriously unnecessary now.
