    Very straightforward. This is a night map, and I'm trying to strike a balance between keeping it dark enough to show that and bright enough to see what's going on.

    It's PropHunt, so there's not much in the way of combat- just hiding and seeking.

    Think it's good enough as-is, or should I add a couple bulbs?

    Yes, I have had lighter areas in Bayou that people still complained about it being too dark. :/

    So this definitely needs some more light, though it may be fine for prop hunt.

    a bright spot at the other end, facing the left hand wall, the actual lamp hidden round the corner, would lure players forward towards the safe area, and show them the path, entice them forward ect. also maybe a wall light opposite the door, to soften the thing up.
    might be too l4dy through, but an idea nontheless

    I think this is an example of good usage of darkness to create an atmosphere, but you still need to brighten it up a little more.
