    I was more wondering if FG would let me automatically generate a circle, rather than having to freehand it. It pretty much only comes up in Feathergale Spire, though, so I don't think I have many more circles to deal with.

    Ambient lighting doesn't bleed into a masked area so to make sunlight shine through either don't mask the areas with sunlight - or and probably easier just add diffuse lights the same colour as you used for the ambient lighting. Make the light have zero bright light and a small radius of dim light and make the falloff 75-100.
    I decided to run with not masking rooms with enough windows that they would reasonably be fully lit by the light from the windows- putting diffuse lights inside those rooms made them darker than I felt was appropriate. If a room is described as having covered the windows or otherwise has its light described, I'm taking it into account.

    Starting in on a section that has no data whatsoever about lighting in most areas, is underground, and is mostly populated by humans and others without darkvision, so I'm improvising. I had another question, though: does the metadata being exported include information about the state of the doors? I realized I'm adding lights to a version of the map my players have run through, so most of the doors that started closed are now open, and I need to know if I should go through the map and close them all or if it's not a concern. I skimmed an XML file but decided I wasn't 100% certain.

    I expect I'll probably have something by the end of the weekend, but no promises.

    Doors are automatically closed when you export the data.

    Ok, I finished adding lights to Princes of the Apocalypse!

    The main ZIP includes a txt file that has notes about any decisions I made that I felt like someone else might choose to do it differently, but I made a version that I would be happy to run.

    One note that I wanted to call out: There is one map in the module that doesn't have LOS definitions. ("The Barrow Mound") It's not as big a deal as with most maps (there's not much that you could see through a wall), but I wanted to mention it.

    I'm including a second zip file, which is an alternate way to arrange the lighting in Feathergale Spire. I like the way I did it better, but I had tried this other way first and so had versions of them. I include them in case you prefer them. (Main ZIP version lights rooms with windows just with sunlight; alternate version masks the entire tower and puts light sources at the windows.)

    I hope this works and is useful. They're yours to do with as you will, now- use, adjust, or discard as best suits the needs of the module.

    This is my take on placing lights in the Starfinder AP Dead Suns 3 - Splintered Worlds. Hope it's useful.

    Are these going to be added automatically in one of the next updates?

    Yes, I intend to do that today so the update will probably go out next Tuesday
