I am having problems with the light shining through the roof and then through the ceiling onto the floor. It shouldn't do this... Also there is the light shining through the ceiling bit.

I have a dominate directional light and lightmass setup.

I tried the cutting out a builder brush block above it and it worked for the window light shadow on the walls and floor but that shouldn't be the way to fix it. It didn't sort the light round the roof.

There must be some sort of brush or texture setting that is wrong which is allowing this to shine through?

Where did you get the ceiling asset from..A already developed map or from content browser.Maybe some property values have been changed.
Could you post a image of the adjoining room with windows as well please.

A nameless Dev helped me with the shadow problem. It was a case of deleting the Swarm Cache folder fixed it on the next light build. But no idea why it did it.
