After the Operation Wildfire update, many people have run into issues with static props not receiving lighting.

To solve this issue, go to the expert compile window, and select the $light_exe command. Then, in the 'Parameters' textbox, prepend -StaticPropLighting. For the default compilation settings, your parameters should be -StaticPropLighting -game $gamedir $path\$file.

This will fix your static props, and allow them to receive lighting correctly again.
