    This doesn't affect all maps, but certain maps seem to have their HDR scale stuck at the lower end, resulting in a darker, duller look. It's most noticeable in Gorge, but it's also broken for Coldfront, Stark, Viaduct, and maybe more.

    On second thought, maybe the reason why freight looks so bright is because it's stuck in the upper end of the HDR scale :O

    EDIT: Got an email from Valve. They're working on it.

    If the sun "imploded" it would have no light because it would be a black hole.

    Our sun is not large enough for that, it will only ever end up as neutron star.

    I'm liking the "orange on white" theme.

    Sun won't become a neutron star, doesn't have enough mass for a supernova.
