    How to create a sun?

    My game has a large empahsis on outdoor levels and destructible terrain, since my editor keeps crashing when I try to slice the terrain I though i'd move to making outdoor levels. My question however, is how do I create a sun? I know how to create a sky dome, but I can't seem to figure out the sun? do I simply create a light and make it really big, or is their some other way to do it?

    Directional light.

        If you just want a static light (which is better for performance), that tutorial isn't all that useful.

          Use a Dominant Directional Light for the best results. If you want the actual "disc" to appear in the sky, setup a material similar to the one in the tutorial linked by CloDel Studios.

            Also use a SkyLight as that can help brighten the level overall.
