Sharp Shadows with Low Lightmap Scale?

A Question for Source Engine

Question Answered but Unsolved

This Question has been answered but no solution has been chosen. You can still post your own answer to help the submitter.
is there anyway to Make Sharp Shadows with a Lightmap Scale of 16 without changing it to 8, 4 or 2? Lower Lightmap Scale always means Longer Compiles and Higher BSP Size.

    No, because that's not how lightmaps work. Lower scale, higher fidelity shadows.
