Console lighting mistake [SOLVED]
I added to many ambient lights from the console (I didn't know about the creation kit, at the time =\). Now I have an area that flickers from light to dark. Is there any way I can fix this? Maybe with the creation kit, or do I need to revert to an older save, before I added the lighting?

Any input would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

UPDATE: I used Realistic Lighting Overhaul (RLO). I changed the Major City Interiors to the 'No Homes' version. No more light-to-dark.

Reload a previous is probably the best and easiest !
Is it for your own mod? like building your own house?
What Lights did you add from the console?

It's not a mod, but just ambient lights I added to a house, using the console. Namely XX10CDC8.

I only way I know of is to open the console and click on it and code should show up, then type "disable", if that doesn't work then "markfordelete", quit game and restart, should be gone.

The only trouble with that is making sure you've selected the correct thing rather than say, selecting a wall or floor section... making a save beforehand is recommended...

I haven't found a way to select lights, using the console. I tried by using "disable" and "enable", but could never get focus on a light. I even found out that if you scroll the mouse the highlight shifts from any items behind the cursor.

I tried adding lights to an area outside a cell so I could pinpoint the location and still couldn't highlight it. =\

I think because a light doesn't have a "solid" bit, it can't be highlighted.

Fixed. Thanks, for the replies.

So how did you manage to fix it?

Sorry, I didn't mention it, but I added my solution to the first post. I've used Realistic Lighting Overhaul (RLO), for a few months already. I changed the Major City Interiors module to the 'No Homes' version. No more 'light-to-dark'. I hope it works for others.

If you use the console to add ambient lighting, I'd sugest you use No Shadow (NS) lights. And always, always have a back-up save, you can revert to, if something goes wrong. Be sure to move around a lot and check the lighting, once you're done (I didn't notice the shadow problem intil I'd played another 10+ hours, (with timescale set to, 1).

Edit: typo
