    Advanced Light Management

    Hi guys!
    Today I'm presenting you new (14th) tutorial in Sven Co-op Manor- Advanced Light!

    List of contents:
    • Compile Commands and Processes
      • Both ZHLT and Vluzacn's commonly used commands
      • Images of different commands parameters values

    • Batch file for custom compiling (suggested by TrEmPlEr)
    • ZHLT Keyvalues
      • Light origin
      • Light level
      • Lightflags
      • Custom shadow
      • Collision and visibility
      • Fading and falloff

    • Blocking Different Types of Objects
    • Global Lightning Appearance (global_light_control)
    • Advanced Texlights (light_surface)
    • Multiple/Switchable light_environments ('-noskyfix' detailed explanation)
    • Mirror Floor Trick (suggested by TrEmPlEr)
    • Toggleable Shadows and Light Bouncing on Opaque Entities (light_shadow, light_bounce)
    • Light Smoothing Control on Specified Textures (info_smoothvalue)
    • Shadow Spreading in Exterior Areas ('_spread' keyvalue)
    • Brightness of Transparent Textures (Embed Lightmaps)
    • Translucent Effect (info_translucent)
    • Decrease Light Fading Ratio on Textures (info_angularfade)
    • Custom Lightning for Models (usage of 'black_hidden' texture)
    • Priority of Overlapping Faces
    • Overview Point (info_overview_point)

    See a tutorial here.

    Based on newest Vluzacn's Compile Tools- contains most of features (~90%), some of the explained more detailed, some of them less. Hope that will help you understand more about light!
    Have Fun Mapping!
