- This mod is in no way meant to compete with the other Darker Nights mods on Nexus (Fellout, Nevada Skies, etc.) Nights are Darker is simply meant to be an alternative to such mods.

- Nights are Darker aims to increase the immersion and creepiness of the Fallout world.

Details:
=============================================
Make sure you have your monitor brightness levels set correctly, ALONG with the in-game settings.

The friend of the night perk might make things look brighter outdoors.

So basically if there isn't a light there it's going to be dark, so you might consider a brighter PipBoy mod, and or a Night vision mod (Advanced Recon Thermal Nightvision). Also check out Pelinor's Glow Sticks mod!
