  1. We are migrating the Unity Forums to Unity Discussions. On July 12, the Unity Forums will become read-only.

    Please, do not make any changes to your username or email addresses at id.unity.com during this transition time.

    It's still possible to reply to existing private message conversations during the migration, but any new replies you post will be missing after the main migration is complete. We'll do our best to migrate these messages in a follow-up step.

    On July 15, Unity Discussions will become read-only until July 18, when the new design and the migrated forum contents will go live.


    Read our full announcement for more information and let us know if you have any questions.

Anyone else seeing this issue with the lighting?

    I haven't noticed anyone else mentioning this so I'm wondering if it's just something strange with my settings. I have submitted my project and a bug report about it. I saw this in beta 9 as well but figured I'd wait to see if it was fixed in beta 11 before bringing it up.

    Attaching a screenshot. The shader used is the standard shader with just diffuse, yet there is this crazy spotlight effect in the shadow-y side of the tree and the tree trunk becomes really dark.

    Can you reimport your mesh with "calculate normals"?
    I reported a bug that normals are flipped on import.

    Calculating normals didn't solve the problem, however I noticed that the Generate Lightmap UVs box was unchecked. That seemed to fix it. :)
