Large Shutters

WIP of the large shutters. In the process of texturing them, need to add a bit more to the model i think aswell.

2 dynamic light functions casting the light on the floor, had to use a fog volume applied to a simple static mesh to create the shafts of light. Brightness of everything can be easily changed depending on where we have the sun/what time of day it is. I turned off all the other lights currently on the level when making. Should be straightforward remaking it in the labs, there were a few issues with light casting straight through bsp so got around this by assigning lighting channels to certain walls/floors. Havent tried them on the bottom floor under water yet, could look good , but having 4 dynamic lights might be a bit mental, not sure.
