Reading through the docs it looks like you can only have a maximum of 8 lights is this correct? In the docs it showed an advanced menu that looks like you can change that number. Thanks in advance,

Steve

P.S. This program is amazing!

Hi Steve,

As far as I'm aware MazeMaker will only allow a maximum of 8 lights when building a maze. Under the advanced tab in MazeWalker, there's an advanced graphics settings option. Clicking here will show an option to change the number of lights (but again, the maximum is 8).

When I'm building my environments, I usually have one light postioned high (10+ units up) with minimal attenuation. I'm not sure what objects and textures you're working with, but if you fiddle with the height and attenuation of this light you can normally light up an entire environment.

Hope that's some help,
Best,
Matt

It's a maximum of 8 lights, but that's at a time. So actually its a maximum of 8 nearest lights at a time.

Not sure if this answers your question ahah
