Directional Shadows Indoor
« on: Jan 08, 15, 01:27:08 PM »

I noticed the option "Directional Shadows Indoors" is checked in the Render Panel:




I cannot get shadows to cast on objects indoor mainly because the building doesn't let in directional lighting, is there a way to enable this feature to work, was it a feature stripped out?

I don't think that switch applies, but I'll have to check. I think it's an old toggle that would cause drop shadows to appear in rooms labeled as indoors.

I think that the only way to get that to work correctly right now is to set the roof and/or walls to not cast shadows.

I'm not in front of a blade at the moment, but do rooms still have an indoor/outdoor setting? I think some facets of that have been removed in the latest engine build. I'll look at it tomorrow.

I don't remember seeing that as an option for rooms.
