    PLEASE SCROLL DOWN TO THE NEWEST REPLY


    Map is very darkened in GMOD, same to the Night Variant. mat_fullbright 1 a bit fixes this problem, but not in the way I want to. Which I want to make it look just like in TF2 which has no Lightning Problems.

    Could it be related to your map's seemingly missing skybox in GMOD?

    Don't know, but I kept checking if I sealed anything. Skybox is sealed. Everything looks fine, but I might guess it has to do something with commands. Not sure about that, but here's my map project (with night variant) from TF2 Hammer. Has normal and sealed brush and unsealed displacement ground which I don't know it should be:

    Yep, I did some researches about my previous map (Edd's House) https://imgur.com/TN1ZQEI. Ground has displacement without props and without normal brush, it's properly lighten up to the night variant. As I remembered, I've did lightning properly, and in GMOD there was no problems. I've deleted and runned normal_brush-less variant of the current map (R_L_n_P_PicturesqueField)
    and supriseful, it's still same blackened as well!

    Thus here's log from the map with a Normal Brush and Displacement.

    Do you have any brushes with lightmap scales set to anything that is not a power of 2?

    Well, let's see...

    Lightmap scale was auto-setted to 99!
    Also in the Night Variant!
    Each time I want to set them to 2, they go back to 99.

    Don't tell me I have to make a new displacement brush with the Lightmap Scale: 2, and form it all over again...

    Alright, I'm reviving this topic, because I've made some researches. Without light_environment, the map completely lights up. (didn't used mat_fullbright command this time)

    I've made also research on the map I've made without having the lightning problem (Edd's House) and I got shocked with a results :O

    https://imgur.com/3WjowNs - Sorry. Wrong image.

    Map was lighten properly somehow, because I copied and pasted into one of the existing map.

    I guess I broke down that error.

    If anyone would like to make map a bit same as mine. Here's an example of the RLnP's base with day lightning. (Only for TF2 Hammer)

    I've encountered a similar problem. When you compile, do you set the lighting to HDR, LDR, or both? TF2 can do both, while GMod can only do LDR. Before I learned to compile with both, I had maps go fullbright in GMod because I only compiled for HDR and was caught off guard because they looked normal in TF2. I know you aren't seeing fullbright, but it might help.
