Description

There is no way yet to fix the standard lighting in sfm that caused models to lose their materials and simply display incorrectly, so a Session was created where you can use the correct light source.

You can see more previews with this fixed light ^ provide by BreadBlack

How install? Simple. Download, unpack and drop it in: Half-Life Alyx\game\hlvr_addons\ YOUR ADDON NAME \elements\sessions - for comfortable using.

These Game light dags seem to come in 4 main Varieties:

  1. The Spot Light (similar to SFM's normal light)
  2. The Omni Light (basically a point Light)
  3. The Ortho Light (I believe this is an orthographic spotlight that casts a direction)
  4. The Sun Light (a wide, environment-sized light for casting on everything)

Known issue: However since it's SFM take cup with salt. You cannot drag and drop rest lights in viewport except The Spotlight. You have to move them like rest models for example. It's not big cost for good light.

You can just use the dota 2 tools

In my opinion S2FM is not worth even downloading / putting togheter at the moment. Since you have to do quite alot just to get a session working, like using GCFscape for workshop items, it's just not worth it. But again that's my opinion.

Please explain why you disagree. Why do you think the benefits of using a software in a buggy state outweigh the inconvenience it's current state causes.

It's obviously because of its awesome incompatibility, lack of features and the high price!

Thank you for sharing this, the detail on new character models look incredible in s2fm when using the lighting in this session. It's great to see the old limitations finally begin to be removed.

Is SFM2 64 bit? So you can use hi-res models without crash.
