Is it possible to customize the sun settings? Or do you have to use the "pre defined" sun settings per skybox? ( [You are not allowed to view external links. Register or Login to see them] )

My friend once tried changing the settings and as a result, he couldnt open his map in radiant anymore and got some errors, is this just a one time thing or is it just not pissible to tweak the sun to your liking?

Thanks,

me

You can change all the worldspawn settings but its a good idea to start with those setting and tweak them. You can also change the skybox image, flare image, and a few others.

If your friends map wouldn't open after changing worldspawn settings he probably misspelled the skybox kvp or deleted one of the worldspawn settings. You can open the map in notepad++ and paste a working maps worldspawn.

I have never found the perfect setting myself but these are always the first things i change when editing my worldspawn.

"suncolor" and "sunlight"
I think suncolor should be close to the skybox overall color. Sunlight anywhere from .25 to .75 for a dark map.

"ambient" and "_color" are the shadows color and how dark/intense they are. I use a low value of "_ambient .2" for a dark map and i set the "_color" to the same as the "suncolor" then darken it by dragging the slider down to nearly black in the worldspawn color window.

I always adjust one kvp at a time every time i compile and make a note of the shadows edges and color and how the weaps reflect light when walking from worldspawn lighting to radiant lights.
