Cannot for the life of me make a completely dark map!
I am trying to make a completely dark forest level with only a few torches as light sources. However, the floor material seems to give off light! The mountain textures off in the distance are completely visible along with all the textures in the world. I would really appreciate some help. Even if I go into the unreal editor sample maps and delete everything except one floor including the skybox, source light, etc all the materials are still completely visible! argh! What am I doing wrong?
Side question: Also, the skybox in general seems to give off light. According to the coding when the sun is at a certain point it should fire off the part of the script where the stars come out but no mater where I place the sun it only gets to dusk even if it is directly below the map.

This took me awhile too. I eventually went to 'World Settings' which is next to details; The 'Environment Intensity' value might be the missing piece of your puzzle, it was for me. I lowered that value and rebuilt the level to finally get darkness.
