Hi,
Some possibilities but the one i see is the position of the sun.
If your track is to low the sun position will be up, like in reality, but in gpb the sun must be under the map.

I changed the values and replaced the + for a - or vice versa and the problem still there
What values i need to put here?
sun_position
{
   x = 60
   y = 100
   z = 80
}

Bit silly, but the .amb is named exactly the same as the track folder?

Hi, when you place an object in the center of the track and at the lowest point you can decide where to put in x;y;z, and so you must have a grid in the window, which show you the center of the working map.

Just thinking your model might have a big offset in one or more planes that needs adding to the sun pos.

The other thing that controls brightness are the colour RGB (0 to 1) in .amb If these were close to 0 nothing would illuminate
