First of all, sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forum! Was not sure which section to post this in.
So I am currently working on a rather large environment and have recently stumbled upon an issue. When lightning is built everything runs super smooth “90 - 120+ fps” but as soon as I place a new object in the scene and the “Lightning needs to be rebuilt” message pops up the fps drops drastically down to like 10-25 fps. I then build the lightning again which takes a while due to the large environment with many assets but should the change really be this drastic? It has made working with this environment quiet a pain due to the sudden low performance the moment I start expanding it with new assets. Is there a work around for this? Could not find much about the issue so figured i’d make a forum post about it!
