While much has been said about the brightness of the hangar lighting, I could live with that. What ruins my fun is the fact that it's slightly orange-ish lighting, and totally screws up the colours when I try to pimp up my ship. For example the "Jupiter Arms (Blue)" paint job looks GREY in the hangar, although it loooks properly blue-ish in the actual mission.
Guys, coloured lighting has its uses, but coloured lighting in a character or ship editor is the worst idea since vertical ejector seats for helicopters. Seriously. If it has to stay bright, then please please please at least make it a neutral white so I can see what my ship will look like in the game.
