    Title: Shadows not working from placeable light sources.
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No.
    Details: Placeable light sources are not casting shadows. I can sometimes get it to work for a short time by changing the Shadow Distance setting.
    Steps to Reproduce: See the screen shot below where Quality Level is set to Best.

    Not only in POTS, but also in normal scenes the lights do not cast shadows for me.

    @Barugon Weird. I'm able to see shadows from the streetlamp at that exact location. Can you check to make sure your shadow distance isn't set to "None"?

    Shadow distance was set to maximum when I took that screenshot.
