Description

Extend ambient light Map Info and Cvar to reduce light levels

Dday offers these two features to globally increase the light level of a map, though confusingly the cvar takes 0-255 and the map info command takes 0-1, according to the documentation.

it might be cool if both options could be extended to cover minus values, to globally decrease the light level of a map?

The ambient light settings define a minimum value for sector lighting, so negative values would have no effect — the default sector light levels would have higher values and thus take precedence.

One would need to add a new cvar that applies a global light level offset after or before the ambient minimum, but I'm not convinced if that's very useful? Perhaps you could elaborate with a use case.
