Need High Quality Lightmaps?

Need High Quality Lightmaps?

Do you have a big Descent mission you would like to play, but lack the computing power to create lightmaps for in a reasonable time?

Then just post your wishes below, and I will compute lightmaps for your favorite missions and store them on my web site. :)

Noice.
I've actually been using the real-time lighting for a while now since my new job (as of january :P) takes a lot of patience and I have less left for at home. Plus since I use multiple profiles (more save games that way), I'm always scared one of them will have the lightmap settings slightly off and then everything I play will need to recompute. :D

Recomputing lightmaps at different settings doesn't delete lightmaps that are already there.

Still, trying to figure out what the settings are supposed to be would be a hassle and when I get home I just want to play some nice looking descent with some nice random music track. After everything else, it's still the laser trails that I like best about D2X-XL... everything else is almost as awesome.

Naah, I mean compared to the settings I computed the lightmaps on with my other profiles. I still have those lightmaps but I don't remember what the settings were that would let me use them after I had to make new profiles from scratch (and now I have to do that again because of something).
