    Swarm Agent

    Exactly what does this do? I have one light and the thing runs for a long time. Does this run with every build...argh

    Swarm is a massive application distribution system...
    here you have the rest of the text.

    In short it use multiprocessor power running the render on multiple machine connected over the network.

    If you need only basic and quick light don`t use Lightmass.
    Just go to Build > Lighting and
    uncheck use Lightmass.

      alternatively, if you want to use lightmass (which launches swarmagent for calculations), build a LightMassImportnaceVolume around only the area you want to render lighting... this will drastically cut down on the build times.

      so make the red builder cover the entire area of your level, right click volumes> LightMassImportanceVolume.
