Important Lightmass Settings missing from Foliage Tool!
So there are a number of important Lightmass settings missing from the Foliage Tool's Static mesh instance settings - most notably:
My question is why aren't these options available for foliage instances in the Foliage Tool? Right now this is causing me a huge headache when trying to get painted foliage to look correct with static lighting and I cannot consider placing thousands of foliage meshes manually.
Is this an oversight or intentional?
Ok so I ended up figuring this out for myself after much pain and some help from friends - basically, the reason the Lightmass options are greyed out in the initial class values is because the mobility of the instance in the BP is set to movable by default, making the lightmass settings mute. To fix, simply scroll up the the Transform section and select "Static" from the three listed options:
Now you can select whichever Lightmass settings you need!
Hope this saves someone some time in the future!
