Point Light Off-Center?

As I was adding lights to a map in my Custom Story, I noticed that the point light created by the candlestick_floor entity as well as a few others are not centered properly. I don't know when it started doing that, but I was wondering if anyone else has the same problem? The link below is to a screenshot of the lamp in question from the level editor, from directly above the lamp.

They are like that on purpose, if you want centered pointlights you will have to edit and save new entities with the model editor.

Oh ok, I guess I have just never noticed it before. Thanks for the response Smile

Edit: I suppose it makes sense, it helps prevent the light from shining through the walls since these would commonly be placed next to a wall. I understand now.
