When this parameter is added to materials, it will tell VRAD to not compile a Lightmap page for that material, which saves compile time. Valve introduced this parameter with Alien Swarm, using it with tools/toolsnolight.vmt, the black areas you see in the levels.

Note:This parameter is also available in Source 2013.


Useful for LightmappedGeneric where you need to use some parameters that UnlitGeneric lacks.

Syntax

   %compileNoLight                         1
