This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This small package file redefines the lighting used in BodyShop, making viewing and modifying your creations there a lot friendlier.

By requests, this package has three versions that have increasing brightness levels, so you can pick the one you like. I also wrote some small details (a mini-tutorial) of how to edit it with SimPE to make it just like you want.

Install is simple... unzip the package file and put one of the files in your config folder (it may work in downloads, but I didn't test it there).

I have attached a screenshot of the same Sim with the old and new lighting system. The brightest file in the new set is just like the one I originally released, with the other two being more moderate brightness level enhancements.

What an amazing idea! I'm often running Body Shop for testing purposes and I'm slowly honing my skills as an artist in this particular field. But you know your lighting is bad when you find yourself readjusting the computer screen towards light even though it's just the program itself, ahaha. Thanks a million, this is a great idea, love it.

Better late than never, I had this for a long time it work "PERFECT" in Seasons. I did thank you, but wanted to add a comment. If you have bad eyes sight even with glasses (lol ) any version of brightness will do. Thanks for a great tool and for sharing.
