generic light entity settings

10-08-2007, 06:36 PM
Hey guys, Im looking for some nice bright settings that light indoor areas well for a generic "light" entity.

I've been tooling around but can't seem to find something that is bright enough to light a larger indoor area well.

Truth be told, I don't think you can light a large indoor area with only one light source. 255 255 255 200 is about as bright as it gets.

Well im not using one light source, sorry. I just need to find good indoor lighting settings that wont leave the infamous black choppy lighting on walls. Ill just try 200 and work down. Thanks.

I guess I misunderstood you then. Try somewhere between 150 and 200. Sometimes, I use a pure white light, and slide the slider down to a light grey in the color picker window (so my RGB values are about 210-220 each). That should approximate a 60-75 watt bulb.

Just place a very dim "5 to 20 intensity" light in the middle of the room, depending on the size of your room, and have it lose 50% of its intensity at 0 (right from the start), and go to 0% at a range larger than your room.
