Can't turn off Translucent Lighting Volume
For some reason I am unable to permanently turn this off. It works fine when I turn it off via the editor console but it defaults to true after restarting the editor. When I try to write it to DefaultEngine.ini and restart, the editor just ignores it. I've tried putting r.TranslucentLightingVolume=0 under both [/Script/Engine.RendererSettings] and [/Script/Engine.SystemSettings] but it doesn't seem to have any effect. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I did some investigating and the easiest way to go about getting this option to save is to add '[SystemSettings]' to your games 'DefaultEngine.ini'. Then below the newly added section, add the console command 'r.TranslucentLightingVolume=0'
This process was a bit of an experiment, as the [SystemSettings] section needed to be added, which was not made super clear. However, I was able to deduce through looking at the BaseEngine.ini and ConsoleVariables.ini how to get this console variable to save correctly.
Now when you start-up your project it will be disabled by default. To check to make sure this is the case, you can type 'r.TranslucentLightingVolue ?' to get further information about the console command including where it is being set.
Let me know if you need further assistance, or have additional questions.
