I want to light the map with something so it looks like daytime. I dont like the mpas with no lights. They are ugly and disgusting. But if i add only light entity it soes up light only at the spot placed and not all the map. I have the entity light_enviroment but i am not sure. if it is were i place it?

light_environment is the right entity. You need to create a sky for it to work, though.
May contain traces of invisible text.

Yup! (I hope...)

The shadows will be like in the real world. You can set the light's pitch in its properties (-90 is straight down).

There is naother prob now. Before i put the lights no errors showed up. Now i put lights it sais this in error log

hlrad: Error: Malformed face normal
Description: The texture alignment of a visible face is unusable
Howto Fix: If using Worldcraft, do a check for problems and fix any occurences of 'Texture axis perpindicular to face'


What could this be? I went to hammer and fixed it but still it shows up in the error log. Also the lighting entities i put dont show up in game.

Then check the coordinates and find the brush thats making the problem and delete it and rebuild it also make sure that if it's a thin brush and you fitted the texture that on the thin sides the texture size must not go under 0.25. hope it helps.
