Switch all lights

I'l like to be able to turn on/off all artificial lights at once. Perhaps a menu toggle, or perhaps a brush which lights/extinguishes all candles and torches it touches. Brightness and color settings should be maintained.

It would be great to have an option to turn off/put out all of the lights in a room with a single button instead of having to do it manually for every light placed.

This feature exists and was added in our last update. YOu can copy the properties of one object to another. In this case, you would disable the lighting on a single object, then under the edit tab select cop or use the hotkey combo ctrl + c, then select paste or hotkey Ctrl + v to trigger the drag box. Then simply drag across the entire map and presto al the lights will turn off. This works for many different aspects of DA. Copy colors, disable or enable animations en masse etc. Thank you for your feed back but I'm going to close this suggestion as it already exists.

A global light source toggle on/off would be super helpful.

And/or some global settings for all your light sources. Colour, intensity, off/on (as already noted)

Agreed here as well, just finished making a 4-floor building that my players will be returning to a lot, it'd be super helpful to turn off all the lights in each room at once, especially as its a big building. Maybe in the Edit Room tab, there could be an option to edit all the lights in a room as well as just switching them on and off, and then individual lights could be customised from there.

Full Agreement; I like to make multiple copies of the maps at different times of day.

I also find it very useful! I thought about it many times... happy that someone mentioned it :) I would speed up many day/night projects :D
