So I have a map that I was just adding the final touches to. I built lighting on everything yesterday, then added a few more meshes as some final details and went to build lighting again and my entire system hard locks (can’t even move the mouse) when I try to build it again. I’ve got an Alienware Area 51 beast of a system with an i-9 processor and 32 gigs of ram so I know it’s not my system choking and like I said it built fine earlier so I don’t know what’s happening.
I tried deleting the builtdata file and the intermediate and saved folders out of the project directory with no difference. I’m at the point where I was going to copy and paste all of the content into a new blank level but after doing so I realized that it lost all of the foliage that I had painted onto the landscape so I was hoping there might be some other way to salvage it before re-doing all of that work.
I’ve also tested building lighting on a new map with a single mesh in it and it works fine so it’s not a case of Swarm being blocked.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
