    hi, Im currently trying my hand at baked lights for my game and I managed to get emissive materials working, but I'm struggling with point/spot lights right now, where when I bake lightmaps, the baked lights look way worse than just using realtime GI

    these are my settings. I've already checked everything to static and fixed all gamma overlaps, but it didn't seem to help, anyone know a fix for this? thanks in advance!

    also there's the problem of the lights giving kind of a glare(?) off the walls, so if anyone knows a fix for that it would be appreciated as well as general tips on how to make lighting look good( if you have the time ofc)
