this is as interesting problem i am having with the toolsblocklight texture, im using a metal fence texture which is transparent, on the other side following the bars i have made some simple brushwork to block the light so shadows would be cast correctly from the light_spot next to the metal fence texture, but after compile the engine just seems to ignore the toolsblocklight texture i have added on the simple brushwork, i have no idea why but its really starting to annoy the hell out of me. what could cause the engine to ignore the toolsblocklight on compile?

    Have you set the lightmapping properly?

    i have not tinkered with the light mapping at all, i figured any shadows should be displayed, regardless if lightmapping has been touched or not, since it would have to have a default setting of some kind
