Gamma Shifter

Side-by-side comparison of the maximum vanilla brightness and the maximum brightness enabled by Gamma Shifter

Gamma Shifter is a fully customizable fullbright utility mod for 1.19+ that allows you to raise the brightness well above the maximum default level so you'll never struggle to see again! Auto Night Mode automatically raises and lowers the gamma at dawn and dusk, and hotkeys and HUD lets you change your settings without needing to use the menu. With Mod Menu support, almost all mod behaviour can be customized to your liking!
