    Not fixed in 2018, after baking, lights still affect indirect no matter what layer mask is. Very bad design imo.

    A little update on this issue. In order to support this feature efficiently in all platforms it will require some changes added to Unity. i.e, it's not something I can fix in the package. So it will take a few weeks until this is fixed but I just wanted to let you know it's being worked on.
