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!

The lights are REALLY bright now and I don't think the dimmer settings are sticking. It keeps reverting to brightest possible if I try to change individual lamps.

I love this idea, but as the above, the brightness goes back to full after a little while. :/

Thank you! I only started playing Sims 4 last night, and that was the first thing I noticed about interiors. So annoying! I'm so glad to know there's a fix.

Tired the new version and it works great. The bright glare is gone. I tried the other brightness mod here and I like yours much better .

One thing I've noticed with this mod...I removed it from my mods folder as I wanted to try the other one thats been uploaded...but it seems the script is still there?

IE, clicking on lights the "set light intensity" is still present and still having the affects.

Any ideas?

I was using this mod and it worked great, I did need to set the lights dimmer because everything was so bright. However I decided to switch to laptop mode to improve performance and when I did suddenly my sims became as dark as they were before. The rest of the furniture is still bright, but the sims have become dark again. I'm on the highest resolution and all graphic settings are on the highest. Only the laptop mode changed.

Thanks for this mod! It makes taking pictures indoors much easier

I think an update is needed for the latest patch though, this is what my sims' house looked like at night:

I want to report that while this mod makes the indoor lighting better, I think the change is a bit too much, and as others are reporting, the dimmed settings are not sticking.
