    [1.0.4] Ambient Light Adjustment 1.4..4.2 [30/06/15] (continued)

    With kind permission of @blizzy78 , and continuing on from his excellent work, I've taken on this plugin which is otherwise essentially the same as before

    This is a minimalist plugin that allows to adjust the ambient lighting on the fly. This should come in handy when you can't see your docking ports because you forgot to bring lights. It should also be useful to Youtubers and streamers that want to brighten things up a bit for their viewers.

    This plugin requires the Toolbar Plugin version >=1.7.0 (no longer bundled with the download - don't forget to grab it separately or this plugin can't do its thing!)

    How to Use

    You have two settings you can toggle between.
    • To adjust the ambient lighting in the current setting, click on the toolbar button to open the slider. Then drag the knob of the slider around. Click the toolbar button again to hide the slider.
    • To reset the ambient lighting in the current setting to KSP default levels, right-click the toolbar button.
    • To switch to the second setting, click the toolbar button using the middle mouse button. Each time you click using the middle mouse button, you toggle between those two settings.

    Both settings are persisted between scene changes and KSP restarts.

    A boon for YouTubers! This came out about 2 weeks too late for me, as I've installed docking port lights on everything but I think I'll install this anyway just in case.

    Nothing is less fun to watch on YouTube than a black screen with voice over.

    To be honest, I need less light, not more Space on pictures has quite an eerie look, it seems as if there is only one light in a studio lighting things - the studio being space and the light being the sun.

    second to the right, then straight on till morning
    This mod could become a blessing for streamers, in particular those going on KSP TV. No more totally black scenes.
    In those circumstances I have to act as a moderator, I use text in this color.

    Does it affect day light in anyway? For instance if I'm in high Kerbin orbit looking at the planet half lit I don't want to see the dark side at all. So can this mod do that without dimming the lit side? I'm with Camacha if I pass into night all I want to see is sky.

    Sometimes ambient light changing is really of help. Till now I've been using romfarer lazor addon nightvision.

    If the lit side is lit by ambient light (which I suppose it is, can't check right now), it will be dimmed. It's just the way the scene lighting is set up.
