    I'm using 2.2.2. If I place a light in a scene, it works fine, but if I attach it via connection mode, it doesn't appear. Does anyone have a work-around?

    this is a bug introduced way back in the day that was never resolved.. the reason you can't see your light is because when you attach it to an object, it centers itself on that object during gameplay, thus casting 100% shadow essentially.... so attach it to an object that is invisible, and then attach that to the original object

    That worked, thanks! It's a bit odd that the light appears centered on the object it's attached to even if the light is positioned elsewhere in the scene.
