Have you ever noticed how dark and dingy the computer screens are for the original computer interactions, like sending e-mail or finding a job, and how nice and bright they look for the ones that came with Free Time, like blogging or writing a novel? If you have and it annoys you, then this is for you.
By changing a setting in their TXMTs, this simple mod makes the screens for all original computer interactions just as bright as the FT ones:
This works for:
All in-game computers, plus any default replacement computer screens (as long as they only change the texture and not the TXMTs - in that case, their TXMTs can possibly override this mod).
This might not work for:
Custom computers. I've tested this mod on several different custom computers from different sites, and while it worked for the vast majority of them, I did come across two computers (both by the same creator) that it didn't work for, possibly because their TXMTs had already been modified. Therefore, I cannot say with absolute certainty that this mod will work for all custom computers.
The mod is basegame compatible. It has been tested on a computer that's never known anything but the basegame as well as in AnyGames with both different EP/SP combinations and with all EPs and SPs.
XanderGC and Leesester at leefish.nl, who inspired me to try to figure out why the basegame screens were so dark when the FT ones weren't.
Happy Brighter Simming!
