"lighting status: out of date"?

    So my map (I'm trying to update the "Empire Builder" map originally by Anteep) has a near pitch-black terrain. When I changed it to a different tile-set the terrain issue went away, but when I went to "Map Status" it has this curious error message at the bottom.

    lighting status: out of date

    With the "out of date" in red. Anyone know what that means? A quick google search turned up nothing...

    I would guess that you need to re-generate map lighting.

    When I want your opinion...I'll give it to you!

    I think it has to do with the option to "Generate Static Shadows" located in the Data main menu (Terrain window > Data > Generate Static Shadows... shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+L)... I have this message very often but it's not a big deal, and I think that's how I fixed it. The message appears when you publish the map as well I think, though it won't prevent you from uploading it anyway. Sometimes it causes surprisingly weird glitches (messed up terrain lighting while ingame, probably because you modified the terrain after generating shadows)... Usually, generating shadows again fixes the problem.
