    My goal was outdoor
    I will test it for interior. But maybe its needs few customizations for interior
    I will make another one for my Interior Lighting Kit that's focused on interior settings
    Initial test with realtime GI

    New settings with blue highlights (UE4 way)
    Use new settings file (LightingBox_Blue_Halo) and drag BlueDirt texture into Dirt slot of the Bloom effect

    Don't forget:

    1. Your rendering path must be Deferred (edit->project->graphics)

    2. Color space should be Linear (player settings)

    3. Graphic API should be DX11 for HDR and DX9 for non HDR (Player Settings)

    4. DX11 only for volumetric Lighting (Player Settings )

    5.Allow HDR should be on in camera component (Inspector)

    6. Allow MSAA should be disabled in the Camera component (Inspector)

    7. Shadows should be activated in quality settings (edit->project-> quality)

    Specially when you have imported a new complete project(for example UFPS) you must re setup this 7 steps again for your project

    Patch is just 3 settings file. You need to override those into original files.

    I'm working on WebGL Lighting Box to get nextgen lighting on webgl (paid 10$)

    WebGL Limitation:
    1. OpenGL ES3.0
    2. No Eye adaption
    3. No liner color space
    4. No precomputed realtme gi


    my solutions:
    1. Mobile specific image effect setup
    2. Fake trigger based HDR
    3. Best settings for Gamma
    4. Baked ambient light + realtime lights (stingray and GTA V solution )

    Free version has a bit limitation

    1. No debug mod to automatically detect wrong settings and fix its problem
    2. No free models
    3. webgl and mobile has only paid version
