Is there a way to increase the limit of 4 stationary lights in a given area?
Is there a way to increase the limit of 4 stationary lights in a given area? I find this to be a bit restrictive since static lighting doesn't affect anything that moves including the player. I actually feel like in many ways lighting was less restrictive in UE3 and below than it is now. The dynamic lighting is better, but I also realize if you have too much of that, it becomes a problem as well.
Hey awilliams1701 -
No currently there is no way to increase the stationary lights limit and you are correct too many dynamic lights can give you a performance hit. Lighting usage is about balancing the performance effects of keeping the engine running at peak performance and getting the environmental look you want. You should be able to use some static lights to help fill out you level. The Static Lights do get propagated to a dynamic mask which will translate to your player character once you build the lighting.
I will be happy to help you through a more specific scenario if you let me know what you exactly are looking for.
