Ponydale Library's Lighting is Weird
Closed, ResolvedPublic


What is happening:
The main level of the Ponydale Library seems to use the same lighting as outdoor maps do at night. Ponies look oddly three-dimensional when the Pixel Light count is set to the lowest or second-lowest setting.

What should be happening:
Ponies shouldn't get the three-dimensional look in the Ponydale Library at any Pixel Light count setting.

Steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Log into the Game
  2. Go to Ponydale Library.
  3. Make sure the Pixel Light count setting is set to the lowest setting.
  4. After looking at Helping Hoof and your pony's appearance, turn Pixel Light Count to the second lowest setting
  5. Then turn Pixel Light Count to the third lowest setting and note how the three-dimensional look disappears.
  6. Change the Pixel Light count to these settings while checking out other maps, both indoor and outdoor, with the time set to day AND then night.

Issue no longer a big difference with changes to rendering at night.
