View Full Version : I need help with my lights.

So I'm having a problem with the lights in my map, they're not working at all.
I'm using to light_spot for like flood lights. But they will not work. I need to know how to have them work. Thanks in advanced.

by chance, is there a prop_static serving as the light 'prop'?
if so, your light may be inside the prop and as such might not be working properly. if this is the case you have two options:
1. (best in my opinion) double click your prop_static to get the properties dialogue. highlight the 'Disable Shadows' keyvalue, and set it to 'yes'.
2. move the light_spot outside of the prop_static. i don't like this one as much, because you might accidentaly make the light look like it's not coming out of the prop. only use if you really need that prop to have shadows (ie. if another light is shining directly on it).

All right I'll compile my map and try it.
Okay it worked. But how do I make it brighter?

By increasing the inner radius in the light properties
