Just a tip on lensflares, for light sources that you think should have a lenflare halo effect, but you don't want to see the flare from the side.

Insert it within the brush by carving a small cube or trapezium shaped brush from the brush which is acting as your light source...

See these images to see a good example of my use of this technique.

I my opinion blocking the lensflare in this manner makes your light source look more real life when being viewed from the side playing your level.

Well just an idea...
