I was trying to take a screenshot and then use a photo editor to insert some eyecandy when I noticed that the vertical beams were all one solid color. at first I thought that mabey lighting was turned off. but it wasn't so I checked all the settings and after a while I realixed that it was happening because the lighting was coming from directly overhead. if it is possible it would be nice if lighting could be moved down to about 45 degrees.

Just out of question is this practical as far as programming or would it require a lot of work. I realize that the game is not designed so that people are amazed by the graphics but rather so that they can have fun using a great physics engine. but if an easy fix for this problemn is available it would be nice.

Or is it a problem with only the screen capture?

Moving the sun does not work
