Title should be: ways to block LIGHT other than using regular brushes

Hi everybody,

Room 1 = lighted (by a light entity) in the room it's center
Room 2 = not lighted.

Room 1 and 2 are found next to eachother. The wall seperating the rooms has a hole in it in which there's a func_rotating_door.

When I stand in room 2 I can see room 1's light through the door. I think this makes no sense. When I stand in room 2 I don't want to see room 1's light.

I was wondering if someone knows how to prevent room 1's light from reaching room 2.

Any help would be appreciated.

Greetings Colin

The ZHLT tools use pretty sophisticated algorithms to generate light. So, for the most part, if it is lit then it is supposed to be lit.

There is actually 3,365 lines of code to determine where light is and is not supposed to be.

All in the vis category:
1,808 in vis.cpp
1,400 in flow.cpp
157 in zones.cpp

You could try experimenting with the "Light Flags"-property of the entity.

1. I'm a guy. Much more of a guy than you.
2. I don't play FF12. You must be mistaken for FFXI and i dont even have that no more.
