Yes, BUT, it uses the same lighting style as if you were inside.
I managed to make my underground map in Darkness between the Stars that way by adding dark particle effects, but my trick for making the walls dark was to choose a backdrop with lighting that clashed with the color of the walls. IE, I used a backdrop that had primarily green lighting(TRD..something) in a map that didn't reflect that color. The TRD backdrop isn't particularly dark, it's about mid-range, but the way it interacted with the purple cave walls made the walls look almost black. I tossed in some black-ish particle effects to add a bit more gloom.
I can haz joystick!
MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.
