Wow, thanks malk, I just remembered that I possible could have enabled that CastShadows option on that Skylight by accident -_-
When I get home ill try to disable that.

Did not change increase or decreased any lightmap resolutions on any of my brushes [so far ;p]

BLUH it still did not work -_-

Ok, so to set things straight:
Skylights must have disabled?:

bCastDynamicShadows
bCastShadows
bCastStaticShadows

Yes, but if you set castshadows disabled the other ones should be disabled effectively too anyway - working like some kind of a submenu.

If you don't get it fixed you might ask one of the experienced guys here to take a quick look at your map.

Thanks again man, I will try that.

Strange thing is, when I removed my current skylight, and made a normal default one, the building still kept hanging on [ Encoding Light maps 0 of 6 ] which is a bit odd..

Anyway, will repost.

Blech I think I found the cause.
The cause was my HUGE BSP planet.
It was almost 100x the size of my map and with a custom material on it, my editor really took a hit when trying to cast lightning over that source
I need to stop experimenting haha.

Thanks again,
Now I can finally continue -_-

But it's great you find the cause :D

 Hey, I was just experimenting I guess ;)
 my backup got overwritten as well, so I did not have anything to fall back too except the autosave but that was 3h before some major progress.

hey darkness m8...each time i try to subscribe to ur blog....i failed and got an error

btw i had the same lighting steps weirdness after deleting the whole lighting for my "ut remakes"....very long process even with one new light only...the delete process seem to be flopped and imo best way is to select all except lights and to copy the whole map in a new one...lol^^...was the only fix to reduce lighting building time i found

Most issues have been resolved and the map is coming along slowly at its end after some days of hard work..
The result is clean, cool and straightforward in my opinion.

Currently doing the last geometry, minor issues, small extra's etc.
Therefor, the last pictures are up in the first post of this thread.

I will post the beta very soon.
Hope to receive some good feedback and improvements :)

Really like the new pic in the first post :D

Look like the map as pass trough a whole visual makeover since the last weeks.

Only thing I can say is that it look a bit bright, lowering your skylight value will add more contrast imho :)

Brightness is fine imho.
Maybe you would like to try to get such a style as on your photoshopped picture? That style would look friggin 1337 and be very unique!

My hardware can handle Bulletstorm with everything cranked up to the max, that map should be no deal.

That is, unless your map needs optimization, which might be the case. When you get to a point where you cannot do it yourself you might want to post a private download link so we can take a look at it and see what we can do.

Hey bros, uhm just one question. Im trying to set up a kismet event for a light and material changer for a flag capture in CTF-Seraph.
Like an orange light that turns into green flashing light and an orange material that turns green after a flag capture and changes back after 10 seconds.

Im having a flag event set up with a "Captured" link to a "Set TextureParam" and a brightness changer event for some pointlights, but I cant get it working :/
Any ideas? I can post a set up from my kismet if needed.

Experimenting more with Seraph.

Sigh, I should actually stick to something, I know.
But I'm such a perfectionist.
I'm never satisfied -_-" 

It might look like a BSP cut in the first pic around the right side, but thats actually Dynamic light coming through one small cut in my map. Weird stuff. I have a glowing blue moon set up above to cast light and shadow into the map

How to get rid of BSP cuts? Especially annoying when its unintended when I extrude 1 layer with a length of 0 for trimming.

I said it before: You will never see such sharp shadows in real life - especially not if it's such a weak light as of a moon. These shadows should be in fact smooth.
Other than that you just wreck your performance with dynamic light - don't use it if you don't have to! And I doubt you are going to make a day night cycle map, apart from that it's really not needed for a multiplayer game where an average match takes 5-10 minutes at the max.

You cannot just get rid of BSP cuts, without BSP cuts, no lightmaps, no optimization etc.. They're necessary. If several of them are causing bugs (like BSP holes, messed up lighting, invisible walls, etc) that would require a major makeover of the level's style (if it's BSP only) or a makeover of the architecture/layout.

Your new style looks certainly better than the previous one, but the textures are still repeating a bit too much. I think floor plates might fit your style better than your current floor texture and some light sources should have more impact on the lighting of the environment (e.g. the blue lights in picture 1 might colour the floor in a weak blue as they're far away on the ceiling. However, they are directed at the floor, so one would expect some light on the floor).

Ah, my comment as been approved, it's ok then :)

There are 4 Jonathan Rutgers on FB & all info is hidden so I can't know which is the one.

Look at Steve Loiselle from Verdun. My profile pic is Bugs Bunny eating a carrot lol Note that I post in French on FB but for PM, I'll speak to you in English :)
