The fleet starbase is dark. I just made a fleet, for myself and my alts, went to the starbase to see how it look, and it's dark.
KDF ships are dark, but it's canon. Unfortunately.
Also, more weather is always cool.
Yes, running with low quality video will make some maps extremely dark, and a flashlight is useless. The lower levels of Drozana are pitch black, so I've had to play them from the ui inset map until something appears that I can shoot at, then the guns light up the room.
Working as it's intended to- buy a high quality video card so you can see all the eye candy the devs are paid to produce.

You're gonna upgrade my Chel Grett for FREE but charge me $30 to upgrade my Kamarag ?
Actually no. I can see well on every map in the game. Including that lower level of Drozana where they make you take a flashlight. The flashlights don't seem to work for me at all, when I turn them on I see nothing. But I can see the interior fine in the so-called "darkness" anyway, so I have never actually needed to use it.
I have all my graphics options set to the lowest possible setting, so it may very well be that I am just not seeing shadows and lights properly on my PC.
