    [0.24.2] Ambient Light Adjustment 1.2.0 - Who needs lights in space?!

    This is a minimalist plugin that allows to adjust the ambient lighting on the fly in the flight scene. 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 (bundled with the download.)


    Download Ambient Light Adjustment Plugin 1.2.0







    Source code: https://github.com/blizzy78/ksp_ambient_light

    (The Ambient Light Adjustment Plugin is licensed under the GNU GPL v3.)






    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.


    Change Log

    The plugin makes a check against http://blizzy.de/ambient-light/version.txt to see if a new version is available. No information is sent.

    Code:
    1.2.0, 2014-08-21
    - The plugin now also works in the tracking station.
    - The slider will now auto-hide automatically after a few seconds of inactivity.
    - The toolbar button is now only accessible in the relevant game scenes rather
      than all game scenes.
    
    1.1.3, 2014-07-27
    - The plugin now does an automatic update check, and also gets KSP versions from
      the update check server. In case the currently running KSP version is one of
      those versions, the plugin will not complain about being incompatible with this
      KSP version. This saves both players' and the plugin author's time.
    - Updated for KSP 0.24.2 and Toolbar Plugin 1.7.6 (included.)
    
    1.1.2, 2014-07-18
    - Updated for KSP 0.24.1 and Toolbar Plugin 1.7.5 (included.)
    
    1.1.1, 2014-07-18
    - Updated for KSP 0.24.0 and Toolbar Plugin 1.7.4 (included.)
    
    1.1.0, 2014-03-06
    - Added the ability to toggle between the current and the previous setting by
      clicking the toolbar button using the middle mouse button.
    - Both settings are now persisted between scene changes and KSP restarts.
    
    1.0.0, 2014-03-05
    - Initial public release.

    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.

    This mod could become a blessing for streamers, in particular those going on KSP TV. No more totally black scenes.
    I like KSP forum: it gives me the chance to discuss with very bright and competent people.
    I am a player, who likes to get things done correctly. In those few circumstances I will have to act as a moderator, I will 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.
    Thanks!

    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.

    As someone who documents everything they do via screenshots this is going to be a godsend.
