Horrible Baked lightmap

I’m working on a simple study project using Godot 3.2.3 and now I’m currently adjusting the lighting. Using GI Probes works perfectly, but at the cost of some poor performance on potato computers. So, I wanted to test it with baked lightmaps.

The thing is, the shadows are extremely washed and pitch black, there is absolutely no bouncing light whatsoever. Furthermore, when I click the “Bake Lightmap” button, the popup only flashes on the screen, despite increasing quality, mode, or max cell size.

Some screenshots:

Firstly, I thought the problem would be the fact I was using CSG meshes. But then I made some simple meshes in Blender, and the problem still occurred.

I already:

  • Ticked “Use in baked light” in all meshes;
  • Generated (automatically) UV2 for lightmaps in all meshes;
  • The baked lightmap box is overlapping everything in the level, including the lights.

Any advice?
