Hardcore Darkness Mod is a mod which gives you a dark space, so it is reality as in real life. Because in Minecraft when you are in a cave or even the dark corners, no lights, you can hardly see something independent of your gamma setting, it is really too fictional. After being installed this mod will default at 0, at this rate it will be completely removed the minimum sky & block light. In the HardcoreDarkness.cfg file you can increase it up gradually from 1 to 2 to increase the brightness and make the space light depending on the moon phase.
