This mod just simply make the indoor lights brighter. I changed the LightRigScale in the data file Renderer.GlobalLightSettings ( 545AC67A-00B2600F-DEAD4915C9C6C0D8 in clientfullbuild9.package).
You can adjust the brightness urself in game, or make it even higher.

9/7/ Updated the version that slightly increased the environmental lighting. The default brightness is lowered by 40%, but still much brighter than vanilla game.

NOTICE
For some of user reported that the brightness went back, it's caused by loading(include loading, leaving lot, entering CAS etc.). The brightness will be automatically set back to default when you try to modify the brightness again after loading.
This issue also appeared in vanilla game without modding, it's not caused by this mod. Hope some day EA will fix this problem.
Here I recommend you, once you have finished modifying your brightness, then ignore those lamps at all!

I think that it have some issues about this MOD. When I played in construction mode, the light I put in there its too bright and some of the lights turn into bright yellow on furnitures. In construction mode without family I cannot modify the brightness of the light. Maybe theres a way to lower this ?

I tested shimrod101's mod, I will test this one now. I looks to me like the light from EA is all over the place. Like I click on adust all lights and one room is dark the rest is light, I click on adjust this light and it affects lights in a different room. It's just rediculous. Is it possible to have adjustments in your mod files completely independent of EA?

my sim is still dark like the vanilla version, sometimes it flashes

*edit* I've checked the mod with laptop mode off and the sims light up perfctly, I'd like to see this mod function in laptop mode too in the future, because, honestly I can play it with or whithout it on, but in my case it runs smoother with laptop mode on, and I'm not currently in a position where I can't buy another computer, so please, make this happen if you can, see ya
