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 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 (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.
