    Most likely something to do with the skybox brushes 'everywhere'. It happened before on another thread. I guess you could fix that by spawning an info_target or info_lighting in a well-lit spot and setting the props' lighting origin to use that one entity's.


    That would make them look self-illuminated and horrible.

    Use static prop lighting and static prop polys when compiling with VRAD

    what he said. If you want properly compiled lighting read this: http://www.nodraw.net/2010/12/lighting-compile-options/

    Only if it still looks weird, you should try disabling vertex lighting and use info_lighting solution.

    Alternative way to light props would be using a lightmap on the prop.
    Mind that this might raise file size quickly so don't use it too much

    You should really read up the article I posted though. It will improve your overall lighting a lot.
