BTMappack Sun Directions & Skyboxes

This file contains a listing of all the various .dml file names, materialList paths, and Sun directions used for both the stock Legends skyboxes and those included in the BTMappack. If you are creating maps for Legends you can use these listings as a starting point in your .mis file to help get your lighting direction in order without going through all of the experimentation usually needed to avoid having the Sun casting “backwards” shadows and other similar issues.

I don't claim these are exactly right on but they will help reduce the tedious waste of time this issue can be when you would rather be doing actual creative work on your maps. You can also use them as a jumping off point to move your lighting direction off of these settings to create a different effect in your maps.

Remember to use “ALT+L” to relight your maps after any changes while in the Legends editor.

This document is divided into sections with each section marked according to directions of the compass as well as some notations about the .dml files.

I hope this is a help to your efforts. :)
