[Geomerics] Stuck at clustering jobs when baking lightmaps.

Global Illumination


-e: attached project never finishes baking

--open attached project (it is!/content/9473)
--open the "scene" in the JunglePack
--open lighting window
--start the backing
--NOTICE it gets stuck at "5/11 clustering"
---it was running two JobProcesses at max for over 1h and logged nothing into the the editor log
--cancel bake
--change color space to linear in player settings
--start baking process
--NOTICE it gets now stuck at "7/11 Light Transport"

--would be really nice to have some extra indication as to whether it is actually still doing something and not just spinning

    Everyone annoyed that they haven't fixed it not that they are creating a new progressive lightmapping system which will surely remove this error

    10/10/2016 Same issue here. Cleared my GI cache and moved the cache to a larger disk size. IF this doesn't work, then I have to light per object instead of the whole scene. Which will be a pain in the arse. Unity please can we get an official response?

    Still unaddressed in the middle of October? Going to Unreal now.

    Postponed? This just confirms it. This is my last project ever dealing with Unity. I'm moving to Unreal. This is absolutely one of the most important parts of game development, and you just leave the damn feature broken without addressing it? This is trash.

    Please, guys, fix this one! Left my scene baking for 22 hours and it is still stuck.
    People are posting solutions like"Disable the whole feature and then it works", or "disable few objects till it completes", but then, what is the point??? Sure I can disable the whole GI but then there is just no feature

    Does Unity Plan on Fixing this issue? this is the most critical issue in the whole engine. I just can't make mobile games without lightmaps, and the lightmap baking technology of Unity 5 is clearly broken. This should be #1 priority. Huge slap in the face

    I find it quite sad that this issue still exists.... I've been trying for days to fix it myself, and to no avail

    Stumbled upon this too! Tried to disable all the GameObjects and then enable only few at a time, but the problem persists and nothing helps. This means that I cannot use baking at all. Would be nice if there were at least some workaround for this.
