Thanks for the lighting mods link. I'll have to explore those more. I'm not sure I want every world the same, but Midnight Hollow is just too dark.

I prefer the first one for my houses, it looks more natural up here, the second has a bit of green to it inside that doesn't look good with my house.

Which world is this from?

Here's some shots with two different Lighting Mods.
The first one I tried was the one made specifically for MH. It did lighten things up enough to play it. But still not loving it.
I also tried the Blues Skies and Sunshine mod. Although it did light the world up It did not fix things. There was a lot of odd contrast. Like the trees were still almost black and the lighter houses were glowing. I guess EA did more than make a world and just creating a lighting theme. They must have fooled around with different values  to make some houses stand out more against to dark background. So it 's an uneven look. And a bit too dull.
I would really like to redo this world via CAW when I get my PC fixed.

It's from Stranda. I'm working with mts to get it up. I can have 100 pictures and they didn't like my text. Nothing more serious than that. I have 10k pics on Flickr, so how do I find that one pic on my pc? It will be up soon hopefully. V1 is available on TheExchange if you don't like waiting. I had to fix a business rabbithole wasn't available to them. Thanks for asking  PlayBall


On your Midnight Hollow pictures I think the sunshine mod looks odd with the yellow houses. The MH mod looks more right, but some of it is a bit too light perhaps? Does it look right when you're playing in it?

That is such a crazy world! I get the dark and spooky theme, but its really not very playable IMO. I would love a remake of it!! I think you are right Friday, they changed everything not just the lighting! The BL&S mod looks fine in the pictures....

A key problem, at least to me, is that they have all the trees and plants and so on black. When I had the world in CAW and deleted all of those from my game, and the standard ones replaced them, it was a lot better. But I still am not wild enough about this world to bother with it.

No actually it doesn't look quite right. I mean it's playable but it's just not a great looking world. Even with the Lights on everything is still so dark. Like all of the houses have dark wallpaper and dark furniture. Which could be cool but it's so dark that it all just looks the same. I'm frustrated because they had a good idea but they botched it up.

Well the pictures actually look a little better than in my game. Like the white house really glows in game. It's just so distracting against all the black trees. Some places look fine but others just don't look right.It's playable with the mods lights but I'm not that happy with the looks.

Yeah it's a shame because i would've liked a darker world but not like this. There is really no definition in the trees.. just solid black. I would have liked some more muted trees and bushes instead. I get tired of all of the bright colors in the plants and grass. I would love more in game like the bramble bushes. So I thought maybe with the lighting mods I could get that with these MH trees but sadly no.Sad
I just wonder who approves this stuff before they put it out. You mean someone actually said "yeah that looks good?" tongue

One of the design programs I looked at earlier had a customer who wanted an only white interior, she accomplished the white, but it was more like monochrome, very light in different colors. Black is just the same, from what I've seen in the dark plants they are all dark purple really, considering black isn't really a color, it's just dark brown, dark purple, dark blue and so on. They could have done the same thing, but didn't take the time it would take to do it. As the designer said, making an all white interior is a big challenge and frankly her bed with pillows and blankets look really great.

I agree that the idea was good but the execution was too extreme, so many people feel what was done is unplayable. I tried to make Spider a bit dreary, but still where you could see the stuff.

Yeah well I tried some of the trees in Moonlight Falls. And though you can see some color and definition in them. They are still really dark. So it's not just the world lighting that is dark but the items in that world as well. Same thing goes for the houses. Veery dark. I like some dreariness but this is just blech!
So for right now I'm going to integrate some of MH into MF. MH reminds me of Strangetown. Which i loved. It's got the crazy scientist' and Olive Spector. So I moved a lot of the population with their homes from MH to MF and now i'm going to recolor their houses one by one. Since i always felt MF was missing something this may satisfy me for now. Until I get my puter fixed and I'm able to recreate my own MH with CAW.

It just follows what EA does with most worlds in my opinion, they are all pretty meh ... but with a goth theme it really requires some more thought to make it work.
