Can you remove the padding (the empty space)?
It needs to fit the maximum size (24x24 pixels), currently it is 32px wide and 40px high.

Ok, this I think is in the Ufopaedia palette.  Let me know if it works.

It doesn't work.

a/ palette is wrong
b/ background is not transparent

There are 5 palettes in the game: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=PALETTES.DAT#UFO

1. geoscape palette (e.g. INTICON.PCK: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=INTICON.PCK)
2. basescape palette (e.g. BASEBITS.PCK: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=BASEBITS.PCK)
3. graphs palette (e.g. GRAPHS.SPK)
4. research palette (e.g. UP031.SPK: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=UP001.SPK-UP042.SPK)
5. battlescape palette (e.g. SMOKE.PCK: https://www.ufopaedia.org/index.php?title=SMOKE.PCK)

You need to use "1. geoscape palette".

I have added support for the indicator already and I will release a new version later in the evening and then you play play with it until you find the correct solution ;-)
I have no idea how to help you with it though, I am a graphics ultra-noob.

Can this be optional? I don't like these icons. Since you don't like background color swap, can this be optionally replaced by numbers representing the lighting level (0-15)? Two numbers should be roughly the same size as an icon, and they won't stand out so badly.

It is completely optional... it is done the same way as the Kneel Indicator... if you don't provide the ruleset entries and the graphics files, it won't do anything.

EDIT: I will not be adding numbers, there are less than 20 people on the planet who would understand what they mean

Is the half-sun representing semi-darkness?

Not a hill? :)

And the night is still symbolized by the full moon, right?

No, I left the night as blank (middle sprite)... if I don't see any indicator, it's night.

I still like the full moon.  I've been using these for a while, and they are terrific. :)
