Question: how can I fully disable runtime shadowcasting on static props? (csgo)

In order to get adequate (sun)lighting, some roofs have been set not to cast shadows - this worked fine when the roofs/ceilings were func_brushes, but now that I'm replacing some with static props, I'm noticing that although the compiler lets light through, in-game it seems to be ignoring the tag & overlaying real-time shadows anyway

[edit] disabling shadowdepth fixed it

You given a try to Lumberyard? Seen it’s becoming open source?

Lumberyard is just a customized fork of Cryengine.

Cryengine is actively developed, updated and maintained; they also switched to revenue-sharing where Crytek takes only 5% of revenues generated by each game built with CryEngine, only after revenues have passed $5,000.

And Lumberyard is owned by Amazon, another good reason to avoid it.

the only thing I've seen about lumberyard is that amazon forced its developers to use it & that cost them years of development time because literally not one person liked it

was not compelled to look into it more deeply

      I've release the project on the ue4's Marketplace. LINK

      There's also a playable demo that you can check out here: DEMO

      This was my most time consuming project that I've started back in 2018, but then scrapped and returned to it in 2021.

      It took about 8 months to complete and was a great learning experience for me.
