I have a need to tweak multiple lights that are lighting up a massive object in my mod. The issue is that the object is so large that i cannot get a good view of it while zoomed in. Normally this isn't an issue except the light bulbs turn RED the farther zoomed out I get. (This is because it doesn't render the light in the creation kit at further distances). How do I change this setting? I need to be able to tweak these lights while zoomed out far. Thank you

Look in the SkyrimEditorPrefs.ini file (in same directory as CK) and adjust values here like you may / would do for the game. I don't know if it's the exact setting you're after, but I found "fLightLODStartFade=1000.0000" in there - so if it's not that one then it'll probably be "nearby". If it's not in that .ini file then it may be in the SkyrimEditor.ini.
