Trying to make the light from the sun more realistic in a way.

I was just wondering if its possible to make the light on the floor in this picture to be sharper or crisper, and also I know there is a tutorial for adding dust and particles and a few other lighting things, however the images are not loading when i look for tutorials and the titles are all shortened not to mention the page numbers are all messed up on this site (for me atleast) so if anyone knows where they are please post a link for me! thank you.

    Select the floor with the texture application tool and lower the lightmap scale. That will make the shadows created more crisp looking. as for dust in the air thats just a brush entity called func_dustmotes, not really a whole lot to that one.
