i found a good thread that organized a bunch of the lighting system threads. it had links to like over 40 lighting threads. i checked out over ten of em and still didn't find the one i was looking for. now i can't even find this thread. i saw it last week. i can't find it now.
the search function is kinda frustrating. i've done several searches. it always gives me over a hundred threads. and over 90% of em have nothing to do with what i'm looking for.
i guess it wasn't meant to be. maybe someday i will find em again. finding a specific thread here is next to impossible. i should've bookmarked it.
