No soft shadow under objects
Hi everybody, I've modeled an interior and now I'm trying to set the lights correctly: I've tried using both a "default" setup, and the "xoio Berlin Flat" setup but all the soft shadows inside are always missing
In this screenshot I'm using just 1 Light Source setted as "xoio" one, a white material for everything; the building light quality is setted on preview but I'm not having a good results even with "High" quality (but xoio berlin flat is set in preview and it has all the soft shadows under the table, ecc)

Leading off with what Jacky suggested you'll want to also make sure that you're using Production for the light build. This will provide higher quality light bake shadows. The Xoio Berlin Flats actually used the Production setting for building as well, but when you download and open the project, the settings for things like light build quality are reset to Preview, which will use much lower quality settings than Production.
You will also want to make sure that your Lightmap Density (You can check this in the Lightmap Density View mode) has enough information there to bake quality shadows and produce good bounce results.
There are a number of factors to consider like the ones above, Lightmass Settings for better quality, Static Mesh UV Layout and Mesh construction.
Try some of these and let us know if you're still having the issue.
