Here is what I did in H2V for a true night map:

Duplicate an exiting .Sky file, such as the Coagulation sky.

Under LIGHTS set the direction of the sun to Y 5 P -90.

This puts the sun (the main light source) under the bsp covering the map in darkness.

Y: Yaw - Roll around the side of
P: Pitch - Roll under/over

Just edit the .sky tag.
Reduce the power of the sun and maybe the indoor and outdoor ambient radiosity.
