Light sources flicker
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When more than 4 light sources ( of any type ) are rendered at the same time, they all start to flicker.
This might be a duplicate issue, but since the bug exists for quite a while now without being fixed, I opened this bug report about it, to make sure it was not forgotten.

After today's EXP patch the flickering is not as bad as it was before, but still present. It gets worse when you reach around 11 light sources though.

Flicker should be resolved in 1.03 , the furthest lights will be faded out instead of each fighting for priority

Limit of displayed light sources at the same time will be increased as well (likely 16) although this is unlikely to be pushed higher due to how the lights currently work
