In Sapien:

1. Press the "~" (tilde) key, top right of your keyboard, above the tab.
2. Type: "radiosity_quality 1 or 0", depending on how much quality you want your lighting to be. 0 is lower quality, but faster, and 1 is higher quality, but takes a lot longer.
3. After pressing enter to enter the command above, type: "radiosity_start", during which, it will run lightmaps at the quality you have chosen, and you will be unable to do anything until it is complete.
4. After the process is complete, (you will know after the numbers at the top left of the game window are all 0's), press the "~" key again, and type: "radiosity_save", which will save the lightmaps to a bitmap tag.
5. File>Save Scenario
6. Restart Sapien.
