    Hi all, another noobish question for your collective wisdom.
    Making an arena map, and it's coming along quiet well, the only problem is that it isn't lighting from spot lights. Since it's an indoor map, this is a bit of a problem.

    The spot lights are placed partially inside the lighting models, and the models are well lit, but the geometry isn't lit at all, and I have no idea why. Everything else is working fine, lighting from the skybox works, no leaks, even the gamemode is functioning properly. Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    Baggie

    If your lights are inside of your models, the models will block all the light. You want the light_spot to be outside the models, if I'm reading you correctly.

    Yes, place light_spot outside the model.

    Disable shadows on light props in general. They tend to be quite horrible anyway.
