Nightime is black

At night in Seyda Neen there is no ambient light.  The sky is completely black, and the only light comes from the in-scene sources (i.e. torches, lamps, etc.).  This makes it impossible to travel at night, or do anything else at night really.  I have only noticed this in Seyda Neen so far.

This depends on the weather.

This depends on the weather. If it's cloudy at night, sky would be dark, obviously.

You would probably be able to

You would probably be able to help more if you actually read what the op stated.

They indicated there is no ambient light other than that thrown by torches and lamps, not that the sky is just dark because it's cloudy.

I have the same issue with oblivion reloaded/obge installed. The lighting in morrowind really shouldn't be any darker than cyrodiil.

Essentially all shadow detail disappears when out of range of a light source.

You could use my "weather fix

IIRC ambient light level was set to 0 for clear nights.

You could use my "weather fix" which adjusts light levels for the different types of weather to Cyrodil values.

I'm trying to stay out of these things ... I really am. But I just wanted to ask if you people ever actually read your posts? I can tell you've never been away from the city you live in. Where I live it actually gets dark at night. (and you can't see your shadow at night either)

ohh well ... you folks should get out more.

You don't have elements to
You don't have elements to rightfully make your comment. You don't know us. Where you live it's different form where we live. There are different ambiental conditions, different light exposition, it's a different zone(you know the night it's higly different seen form equator and from the pole). Also there is different weather conditions, so different light reflexion. Also is natural that for example in mountains it's a lot more darker then a low level city, or country. Sometimes where I live, expecially the night when there is cloudy or rainy weather, it's so bright it seems almost day. And also when there are no clouds it's not so dark. Maybe out of the city is more darker I don't negate this. But it's not a so higly difference. It's natural that for someone something is normal while for someone else is too dark/bright. It's not only a fact of travelling more. You should change zone, probably State. to see any great difference.

So ... are you saying that

So ... are you saying that morroblivion should automatically  accommodate the user's local conditions? I would like to see you do that mod, please ...

or just look at this one below. You could change it as needed to accommodate morroblivion, then offer it as alternative lighting for city dwellers. You'd be the hero! Don't forget to put all the lighting variables into an ini file so the user can set lighting conditions to whatever he wants ... any time he feels like it ..

Lighting Overhaul

Forum topic - Drakonman - 07/10/2015

you could turn night into urban twilight for everyone.

(or, 'thinking outside the box', maybe just make a 'nighteye' spell, attach it to a wearable item, give it to the user, and let the user see in the dark when the item is equipped)

next ...

No I'm saying that you should
No I'm saying that you should not tell people that you don't know ""you folks should get out more"". Becouse there are multiple factors that can make these conditions. It's obviously impossible to accomodate for everyone. I'm only saying that you was excessively rude without any good reason. I agree that if someone is not happy with something that is not a bug, it's the person himself that must modify it.

I have noticed that

I have noticed that Morroblivion Vvardenfell is very dark at night; I've never had it totally black, but it's bad enough where I truly can't see anything beyond vague shapes without using Light or Night-Eye, even in places like Balmora where ambient light exists. (I have no lighting/weather mods.) Solstheim was the only exception to this; I found it quite visible at night, similar to how it looked in Morrowind, or how nighttime looks in base Oblivion. I just chalked it up to the differences in who was in charge of creating those portions of the game. Does the mod above only affect Solstheim, or Vvardenfell at large? Because it's not Solstheim I'd like to brighten up; it looks fine to me, but the mainland is near-impenetrable.

I love dark nights. Torches

I love dark nights. Torches are a hellish bug in Skyrim but provide a wonderful gameplay element in Oblivion.

P.S. Yes, it is dark at moonless nights and in caves. Yes, there is a visible shadow cast by moon.

Hmm, looking back on this thread I was a bit of an ahole unnecessarily, my apologies. I've got back into Morroblivion and I'm quite enjoying it. Nights are still very dark, which is actually quite realistic, it's just kind of jarring when transitioning to the Cyrodiil landmass. It might have been more prudent to list a darker nights mod, or to have Morroblivion change nighttime brightness in Cyrodiil as well. I find darker nights to be more realistic, and it provides a reason to actually use a torch, but it isn't consistent.

Actually, I think it's the

Actually, I think it's the Vvardenfell Fog that's the big issue at night -- because the fog shaders are not volumetric, it just looks like the you are walking around in pitch-black unless you are 2 feet away from a light-source.  When I force a weather change, the nightsky and landscape immediately become as clear as Cyrodiil nights.  Maybe there's a way to modify weather so that the thick oppressive fog never occurs at night-time.
