Hello

I have begun mapping again after a long break. But i kno how to make a map dark.

Im going to make a "inside castle" map and i need it dark. If i add a light somewhere the hole map turns to pitch black except where the light is.
How do i fix this.

I could make light all over the map but it will take years for me to get it all good.

Thanks

And maybe change the colour of the lights, so that they are darker.

Make a light_environment (or something along those lines) and put it in the map, matching it's properties to the skybox.

Unfortunate, considering that's what every other decent map does.find that it's a fair bit more

As salith said, the light_environment will help for sky light, though that might not be too useful if the map is completely inside with no windows.
