How do I make a shadow on the map in the corners?
Just would not be always light. That will also dark corners .. Even in open spaces

Put a light somewhere in your map, that should remove full-bright.
Today's post brought to you by the letter: "heck".

It does not work .. I put environment light, and in another place on the map normal lighting and the lighting has not changed.
Should I select the dark initially?

Don't use the light_environment. Use a regular "light".

So put a lot of light in map, each corner I want? No problem. Thank you!

Just to be clear:

light entities add light where you place them.

light_environment causes the sky to produce light.

And if you don't create any lights, you get 100% brightness everywhere. Not 100% black as you would expect.

So I have a compiler problem .. That even with the environmental light and only light I have 100% brightness as you described. Here is a diary compiler:

It will give you an error in the compile log but you can still play the map.

This is not lighting-related. This error is usually caused by using extremely large or extremely small scales on textures. Try pressing alt+p in VHE with your map loaded and see if any errors show up.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.

The check for problem does not work .. The cutting tool can cut the large area. That would solve the problem?

Use the texture application tool (shift+a) and select the face mentioned (with the {fence texture), then make sure both scale numbers are below 10.
...and that's the bottom line because Mate de Vita said so.
