Stadiums too dark with roof closed?

In playing through my Franchise I've played games at Miami and Seattle. I noticed when the roofs are closed the stadium appears very dark. The field looks fine but the outfield seating areas almost can't be seen. This is the first Show game I've played in a couple years so I'm not sure if this is a common issue or not.

I've noticed this with Seattle for sure. Extremely dark for a night game with the roof closed. Really takes away from the experience when you can't see the outfield stands because of it being dark.

I should have mentioned I'm playing on Xbox Series X if that makes any difference.

If you want to see what the lighting in this game should actually look like, try uploading some full 4K HDR footage of a night game to YouTube and watch it on your phone. Speaking for myself I was blown away at the difference. My tv really does suck. If you’re not enjoying the lighting in this game I’d 100% blame your display.

Re: Stadiums too dark with roof closed?

The Show has had this problem for years in addition to its problem understanding North American weather. It drives us mental in Canada that they have had -- FOR YEARS -- people wearing cold weather clothes in Toronto and 15 degrees (60F) in May with the Dome open or closed. It's ridiculous. But the lighting thing is bizarre. I think they've tried to make it look like an exposure thing but it doesn't work. Some stadiums are ridiculously dark with closed roofs in the game.

I had this happen at a night game in Fenway, as the OP stated just the stands were dark. The game before that was a night game as well and all looked fine. This is in franchise.

I’m on ps5 with a tv that has hdmi 2.1 ports.

Re: Stadiums too dark with roof closed?

I'm struggling with lighting overall, but I've noticed improvement with closed roofs (Houston, Arizona)

TMobile is rough though, can't argue with that.

Nope, makes no difference cause I'm on PS4 with the same problem.
