It was promoted as a dark world full of gloom.
It lives up to that standard quite nicely.
I do not have links but have seen posts on the EA forum suggesting to uninstall and reinstall the world. That is supposed to fix or at least change the lighting.
Weather may be a factor as well.
Example: Riverview
I have owned Riverview forever. Before Seasons the lighting was the usual standard.
Since Seasons I can start one save with decent lighting.
And a second save that appears dark all the time.
Add to the mix a gloomy weather day full of fog and rain and visibility at high noon can look like night time.
Same with MH. Dark and gloomy weather in a world intended to impart feeling of gloom and boy... will it ever be DARK.
Going to give it a better run over the weekend. Was too busy trying to work out the festival lot the other night.

Not crazy about the world but I might get the OFB PC just to make my bakery... if we can do one. Bakery and clothing store were my best OFB businesses in TS2. Someone let me know if this works? I won't be buying it anytime soon. Still need to get IP then UL... then I'll think about getting more simpoints.

Checking out the Alley. I can take pictures with the camera in game, but I don't know. It's still pretty dark. I found the toyshop and I don't need to pay any extra for it.

I thought it had already been placed, but I couldn't find it, downloading and placing it myself.

Yes it may be the weather, it's the kind of thing a world builder can change in the ini's, but it can be complicated.

When I went in the second time it was a bit lighter.

Lis, we cannot do a bakery. We can sell only items with prices that are in buy mode as I understand it.

I tried to build a toy store in IP and I cannot place the register. I went into b/b in the EA one and could not move and replace the register there.  

hmm

Ok ... I'll have to check that out. Edit: I have a community lot "visitors allowed" in Stranda, and it works nicely. Have you founds those things to set the toys on. I found the rugs, but not the counters.

I had the Flood family with 2 toddlers, 2 kids and a teen and put them in a 3 bedroom house. All the rooms where huge, but I needed to fit in lots of beds. I also hired a butler, but then I selected "set service" on the father instead of selecting career eeek  suddenly he was uncontrollable but still in the house. I guess I found out how to set NPC's in Stranda when I get there RoyalWave 

The family suddenly was no fun, so I just exited without saving banana , off to test a toyshop in Stranda.

Off to test.
I must be doing something wrong, I followed the instructions and it does show up in the neighboord, but it's labled big park not festival so I changed it.  Well come festival time you can see the tent icon from map view but when I sent my sim there it empty.  Three other sims were there but there are no booths or anything else.

I must be a secret Goth myself since my least favorite town is sunny, shiny, Sunset Valley. I like Twinbrook, with it's swamp and it's fog, Moonlit Falls (also with fog), Hidden Springs with the dark forest, and now this one.

I DO need to brighten up the interiors a bit with more lighting.

RL is interrupting my play time   rant 
Only been in MH approx an hour or two in real time.
I did add kid books to library and a play simple area. 
Briefly looked at toy store but have not made any toys yet. 
The register seems to work similar to the Business as Usual Bistro PC.
You Sim can hire and fire as well as set lot hours.

I finally got help with my Midnight Hollows problem over at EA answer HQ. Perhaps if I'd tried that first I could have saved myself a bundle of frustration. Crinrict seems to be running the place by herself. What a chore!

After clearing out some folders and moving one to a safe place, I started the reinstalling with Worlds first then Lots and thenI couldn't stand it and went into the game to see of MH was in the menu and it was! cheers  so started that world and it loaded fine. That town is really tucked in between the hills! I picked the doe family and played them for about 5 minutes. Tried to figure out how I was going to get them to bed when their energy levels were so high ( it was dark and surely nighttime ) and looked at the clock and it was 11:00 am.Laughing I finished installing the store stuff in the right order but haven't been back in the game yet. Looking forward to it.

Not sure what to do about a festival park. Put down a premade like SV's and recolor the landscape? Is is possible to use one of the other worlds Festival parks?

Here is the house I moved the Goths into. I forget the name from the menu, but it's on a 64x64 lot somewhat in town. I did some rearranging of the walls, put down grey carpet instead of black flooring, and added the wallpaper the Goths had from Spooky Town.

There were tall walls with a fence on top around the entire property which played heck with the camera, so I removed them.



This screenshot WAS taken at night. I added a lot of lighting.

Thanks Daisylee. I was thinking about those Edible Food CC that's created by Sandy at ATS since those edible foods go into B/B. Don't know if anyone uses those but that was what I was thinking of using.

FYI: Festival Lot
Once you get the lot in your game look for this lot in the library.
It is not labeled as a Festival lot. The difference is the lot value.
To be on the safe side I did change the designation to Festival.

I just made it an visitors allowed lot in Stranda. Didn't get to buy it, but that's probably because of the zoning.

They bought some items and didn't even see the clerk or seller. Some items popped up in family inventory and some in Sims inventory.

Did you find thouse counters in the toyshop? I couldn't find them.

Good Morning sunny 
My last post on page 6 has a link to a review of the Saavy Seller items.
There is a list of the locations of all the items including the counters to sell things.

I read on Carl's Forum that EA lightened up Midnight Hollow a bit, so if you re-download the town, it should improve the visibility.

Or turn on seasons to Winter! ... snow makes everything visible. Looks pretty cool, too.

Thing is, I don't want to love my Goth progress! I could "move to a new town" and pick it again after I download the new town, I guess.

That is interesting. I know in the LGR review he thought it was too dark to be playable. I wonder if the sales were not that good as too many people thought it was too dark to play. Hmmmm, interesting.

Yes I found that rather interesting as well. LGR is also used to playing dark environments in other games, this must be pretty hopeless then. If they just had some lights in strategic places perhaps, but if they lit it all up a bit more that should be fine. With the ini's it's probably fairly easy to do.

If you move Sims to the same world wouldn't they keep their friendships? I know they keep their jobs, etc.
