This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This small package file redefines the lighting used in BodyShop, making viewing and modifying your creations there a lot friendlier.

By requests, this package has three versions that have increasing brightness levels, so you can pick the one you like. I also wrote some small details (a mini-tutorial) of how to edit it with SimPE to make it just like you want.

Install is simple... unzip the package file and put one of the files in your config folder (it may work in downloads, but I didn't test it there).

I have attached a screenshot of the same Sim with the old and new lighting system. The brightest file in the new set is just like the one I originally released, with the other two being more moderate brightness level enhancements.
