Even adjusting the shading so you get an even darker shadow, almost blackness, on the dark side of a planet would add to the realism of space instances I think.
Oddly enough, I don't like how dark the ships are. Don't get me wrong.. I LOVELOVELOVE what they've done to change the looks of sector space.. love it.. but I find the ships just
dark. I'm one of the few that actually enjoys seeing their ship traveling through sector space, not to mention in none of the series or movies do they have exterior views of the ship that are
Personally, I'd love them to match the ship "brightness" to match the instances, rather than the other way 'round... as long as it doesn't remove the beauty that has become Sector Space.
