1st off you need to be in your BASE layer of your world. then ....

-In Zeroeditor go to the LIGHTING tab

-On the LEFT hand tab select Dir lighting and place it where you choose

-Name it (i named mine 'Sunlight' )

-Turn shadows to 'YES'

-Now, on the Right hand tab put your name (eg. Sunlight') in the Direction 1 box .

it will be :)

At the mo' its just a Dantooine test map



@Rends
I extracted the 'cliff' textures with the kotor tool.

Im hopin to have it very much like the KOTOR map except the jedi enclave being a converted Rebel base ... like what they did with the massassi temple on yavin.





Teancum or Guru can you make this a Sticky - icky ?

How about an "extra sticky" just for small tutorials?

@ Bandu -- what I'll probably do is what we did with BF1 modding. This topic itself won't be a sticky, but in the FAQ sticky there will be a link to here.

OK... what am I doing wrong? (Yes I did place my light where the sun would be...) I'm still not getting shadows...

EDIT
It wasn't my map that was causing the problem... It was my graphics settings... It's all good now!

Oh Derkie... Dunno if you knew --- I'm already 1/2 way through Tatooine: Dune Sea

Wow... these are moving fast. Let's see, that leaves Kamino, Naboo: Theed, and Kashyyk: Islands.
