I have just found out how to add a sun to your map (visual part only) using a lens flare (I already of a light actor providing the actual light).

The only issue I am having is changing how big the sun appears. I am using the Torlan lesn flare and have looked at the one in WAR-Torlan and DG-Waterfalls-SE. Both of these have a nice size to it while playing in the map.

I can't for the life of me, figure out how to make it bigger, but still be far away. Any suggestions?

In the LensFlare asset, Source.SourceElement.Size.X/.Y if I recall correctly.

So you will need your own custom LensFlare asset. The LensFlare editor crashes on a lot of systems though, so you may not have luck duplicating and editing it.

I found a few earlier threads that stated how to copy the stock one. maybe I can find a custom one. Either way, thanks for the tip.

The package I sent you previously has the LensFlare asset from my maps.
Just rename it into your map and insert it.

Really? I wasn't aware of that... ;)
