    I'm hoping this is the right section

    I edited a map with new textures, but now it's incredibly dark.. i'm wondering if there's an easy way to add lighting to an entire map with ease? thanks :3

    Depends.

    All outside? Looks for a different enviro light set-up. Alpine (lumberyard) is high noon so almost no shadows and bright.

    In side? You need to add lights. Pretty easy to make a standard fill light (100 brightness, 300ish 50% fade, 1600 0% fade), then clone those around into rooms (they'll brighten areas a bit without any strong light sources and have a nice smooth fade out)

    A trick I have learned with lighting is if your doing outdoor lighting, but have like an awning or overhang that creates a dark spot, do like a 25 brightness light in the same color as the ambient light from the env_sun... Sawmill uses it in some places.
