Summary0004932: Graphical Settings Menu Overhaul
DescriptionThe graphical settings menu becomes quite stuffed with things nobody very touches.
The following things have been proposed (albeit not fully decided):
-Remove Interaction shader and ambient method settings. Leave both on enhanced by default.
-Tweak Soft Shading softness to an appropriate value and remove slider
-Add information popups next to settings for explanation

Most importantly, redesign how Brightness and Gamma is handled:
-If post-processing is on, use post-processing methods for altering these parameters (leaves OS brightness unaffected)
-If post-processing is disabled, use r_brightness and r_gamma and warn user that OS brightness will be affected.
-Make sure both methods use the same mathematical formulas to set brightness and gamma.
-Possibly implement a method to fight color banding in the post-processing path
-Integrate SoftGamma, e.g., by providing a slider for r_ambientMinLevel named something like "Increase ambient lighting".

"-Remove Interaction shader and ambient method settings. Leave both on enhanced by default."

+1. I bet most people don't even know what Interaction shader does.
