Here is a screenshot from my game during the day on default gamma. I have never had this problem with any other game. Turning down the brightness on my monitor doesn't help because literally everything is still white. I'm assuming this is a bug with the lighting engine used by the game, and it's weird because the brightness seems to be inconsistent from day to day in game. Again turning the gamma down helps some to make it more playable but the lighting is still weird, and the dark scenes are then barely visible, so I end up constantly going into settings to change the gamma every time I enter or leave a building or it becomes day or night. I do appreciate the suggestions, and hope that this is fixed in later versions.
