    Is this "yet another darkness mod" for Space Engineers? Well, technically, yes.

    I always wanted the game to look like real life NASA photos, and I always wanted darker tunnels and caves. I wanted to be able to hide my ships on the dark side of the Moon. I tried several mods that promised darker shadows, and they mostly made everything dim.

    So I made a mod for myself, and played with it for a while. Then I decided to share it.

    I have spent multiple hours tweaking dozens of settings to achieve proper "space-looking" shadows and retain illumination where it should remain. I also toned down excessive bloom and obtrusive sunglare, while keeping the sun itself properly bright.

    The mod is available on Steam: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1136188499

    The skybox is made by Darth Biomech. According to his announcement, modders can reupload it with changes freely.
