Playing with a slightly darker night

Post by Porter65 »

Is there a vanilla setting so that the night is a bit more relevant? In vanilla, the night seems like a "light dusk".

I tried the 2 mods about a darker night, but they are borderline 'perpetual night!'. First the night is pitch black, which would be bearable if depending of some semi-random factor, this lasts sometime more than 12 hours!

So I'm searching for a sane middle ground.

The 2 mods I tried and that were not doing the job, being too extreme are:
Darknight 1.1
NightBrightness_1.1.7

Ok, I found what I was searching for. There is a third mod with a just too long name that is more involved than the 2 other. Now, I'm surprised there is no simple vanilla setting to make the night lighter or darker, with a slider.

There are the brightness and contrast settings

But they affect everything, not only the night lighting.

I remember thinking night got significantly less dark at some point, but I can't find a change in the changelog (I would have thought between 0.17.0 and 0.18.0). Did I miss it, or did I imagine the change?

In any case, darkness always seemed pretty much irrelevant after oil when you can get nightvision equipment etc.

I am using NightBrightness_1.1.7.
I have had no problem adjusting the values that the mod provides in settings to get a really dark night or a slightly brighter night.
If you have problems with that mod, take it up with the mod author.

Another alternative is the very flexible Clockwork. It allows to reduce night brightness and by default extends the day/night period cycle by 4 resulting in longer nights and longer days.
