Bump.

Is there a light tool that can generate lightmap data for water surfaces? I'm looking forward to implementing lit water in the engine, so I need to re-lit the maps for testing.

After getting the rendering part of this working, I should probably implement a simplified in-game light compiler for turbulent surfaces only, to generate their lightmap data if it's missing.

If no q1 compiler, qrad3 might be the closest thing. kmquake2 engine added feature to render lightmaps on trans surfaces and it does not require a compiler mod.

DP supports it, so I assume hmap supports it too. I don't know which commandline args it needs or if it needs any, sorry.

Hmap2 doesn't support it, and neither does Jardrup's light tool. All light utilities skips TEX_SPECIAL surfaces.

I'm going to integrate a simpler version of the vanilla light compiler in the engine, just to get it working. Jardrup's version can replace it later.
