#SBoxlimit_lights and Painting.

  1. whenever i try to attach a light to something it says #SBoxLimit_lights and i can’t find a place to turn the limit up, so im wondering if theres a way to fix that.

  2. Is there a way to be able to paint more w/o the old paint getting erased, this game seriously does not allow you to paint much at all and thats a real bummer.

All help is appreciated, thanks.

I think paint may be under the decal limit. I’m not 100% though. So find where the decal limit slider is and bump that up.

I registered to answer this question, both for your sake and for anyone else who stumbles across this OBNOXIOUS problem.

These are the symptoms I witnessed on several of my computers-
1- The console command to control lights should be completely removed

2- When making a server, you should not even see the lights limit
—HOWEVER, you should see some malarkey regarding scripted entities

3- When playing single player you may or may not be able to make lights

4- When trying to make a light you should see “#SBox Limit_lights”

5- In the console you should see “You have hit the lights limit!”

I found that a certain addon- Dismemberment Mod 1.9 - was the cause of the problem.
I am glad that I found the cause of the problem, but it is unfortunate that one of my
favorite mods was the culprit.

That command will up the limit to 10 lights.

Actually, some people doesn’t have that command when they host using ‘create multiplayer game’ (like myself).

Thanks for that, but personally, I know almost every console command, including that one.

—{no-named}—"Actually, some people doesn’t have that command when they host using ‘create multiplayer game’ (like myself). "

Exactly. As I said-

—{myself}—“1- The console command to control lights should be completely removed”

When I use this mod in a LAN or internet game, NOT ONLY do I not get any dismemberment effects,
but the ability to change the lights limit doesn’t work at all, and it is replaced with a “scripted entities” checkbox. The console command is COMPLETELY removed. Wiremod lights still work, but I haven’t the faintest idea how to use them.

I found that the Dismemberment Mod itself was the problem.
Either that, or it had a conflict with one of my other other mods.
