Could there be a console setting to adjust the light sources duration? Like a Set_LightDuration where a value like 0.7 or 1.5 is used as a multiplier for the base duration? And maybe a Set_LightRange too? I often find that the range of light sources is just too short, given some rooms and corridors in Daggerfall...

I'm extending the range of the light sources. I have no plans to create console commands for adjusting duration and ranges. Both aspects for each item are configured in the item templates config file. When the game is released I will post instructions for modifying these. Prior to release I would prefer that eveyone is testing the defaults and also not posting bugs because they don't have updates to the file due to copying over modified versions from previous builds.

Have updated the first post accordingly.
See my mod code for examples of how to change various aspects of DFU:
