When I add a light in the scene then the light will show on the ground, but when I add a second light, neither of them show on the ground.

One light:

One light's hot spot on a white ground plane

Add second light:

Ground plane with no hot spot

My light is a spot light, and it's not working on the iOS device, but the PC is working fine.

I found this is related to quality settings: when I change to high, it shows both lights.

Is there a way to show two lights while using medium quality?

  • \$\begingroup\$ Did you set Render Mode of the second light to Important? And did you set pixelLightCount in Project Setting -> Quality? \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ Depending on your target look for the game, there may be ways to achieve that look that will run faster / consume less battery than increasing the pixel light count. If you find your game is not running as well as you'd like with multiple lights, try posting a question showing your visual target and asking for an efficient way to achieve it. \$\endgroup\$

1 Answer 1


Renderer - pixelLightCount , Medium is 1 and if you want more light show on the ground then set the number to more than one.
