View Full Version : Lights, camera, action! Lighting issues.

Thanks for all the great help in making my map. My next question comes because when I run the map in LIGHT, the light bleeds through. If it is on one side of a wall, you may still see it where the wall meets the floor on the other side. How do I fix this? While this isn't a map-breaker, it really annoys me. Also, is there a way I can make more than one brush a single brush? The problem is that I did quite a bit of clipping to make a shattered door, and I want to make the area around the shattered part to be one brush without the use of entities. Is there a way? TIA

(just forget this mumbo-jumbo and look at post below this)

Well for the light part you can do one of the following ( may have to do more than one)

A. Make the brush structual
B. make the wall overlap the floor or whatever surface the light is seeping through.

Hope that helps..

Can I just say be sure not to follow the "overlap the brushes" idea, it increases BSP size unnecessarily. Just follow Ydnar's explanation of things and you'll get there.

some textures give light but how make that the model give light... how create a blue light, I need lamp light efect like in Rift Sanctuary.

not sure if u can make a model 'give out light' :P but u can just get a normal light, set the size, press n to bring up its entity window, then press n again to close it, then press ctrl and k, select the colour u wnat, select light again and press n, the colour should now be set to that light ( as u cna see by its change in colour in 3d window and the new colour key in its entity window)
