Default Shadows


I have a question.

What can I do to make my shadows look as good as in original Croteam levels ?

These shadows are from my map :

and these are from original levels :

They look darker than mine.
Can someone help me to solve this problem ?
I'd be very grateful.

You have to use the Ambient Light Modulator in Effects, experiment with it around that way I got my shadows in one of my maps darker

Also, proper GI Baking. After baking the level, you shouldn't do "Resize Lightmaps". Of course, without that the whole level might be full of pitch black shadows, because I think the GI Baking is still broken in SS3.

While I do work for Croteam, I'm first of all of this community, so my opinions are my own and do not represent Croteam's views.
