Missing 'add tool' and Indirect Ligting

I am irritated: I can’t find the indirect lighting option anymore and the toolbox shows no ‘Add Tool’ in my actual blender version. Did I wreck my UI or have there been changes?

The Add Tool was taken out in the 2.54beta. It diddent save added tools between sessions so as it had only partially implemented its objective it was taken out.
For indirect lighting I believe you have to change the Environment lighting from Raytracing to Approximate.

Out of curiosity, what does Indirect Lighting do, taken that is not GI?

Indirect lighting is 2.5x’s version of 2.49’s radiosity, basically allowing meshes to emit light. A good example I found when I wanted to figure it out can be found here:



Yep! Thanks!
