Boosted Brightness

Boosted Brightness is a simple clientside mod that allows you to set your brightness beyond default levels to your liking. It makes use of Fabric (not Forge) and is compatible with 1.16.

The mod modifies the brightness slider in video settings, extending brightness range to 1200%. I found 200% - 500% to be a fair compromise between being able to see the darkest areas clearly and actually seeing differences in lighting. 1200% is full-bright.
