Not sure what to call it but can the directional lighting be toned down? In one angle everything is lit properly, but then rotated around the opposite way everything is quite dark. I get that the sun is shining from a certain direction, but the shaded side tends to be a bit overshadowed leaving things with less detail and harder to make out. Kind of hurts the graphics and the OCD in me makes me keep rotating the camera to get the "sunny" side.

Bumping the brightness or lowering contrast in the options just makes everything washed out or too dim.
Suggestion, implement global illumination techniques
