    Has anyone made a full collection of light instances, i.e. mostly stolen right from Valve maps? The advantage over prefabs would be pretty significant, I think, as it would let mappers that have the collection customize it very easily.

    You know that search button you just mentioned in the other thread?

    It's there twice.

    prefabs are better than instances imo because I enjoy tweaking every simgle light entities. instances aren't flexible enough imo.

    Yeah I'd say use that lighting library and create your own preferred instances from that.
    Having a complete instance collection means everything needs its own vmf which is hard to "browse".

    Creating the instance this way shouldn't take more than a few seconds.

    Ah, I have the library, which is useful; I was just wondering if someone had on their own made such a collection of instances, that I could then adopt. Thanks anyway
