Light fog

Hola!

I'm making a lighthouse. To see the light beam, I'm using a spotlight with the Light fog enabled.
Then i'm rotating the spotlight 360 degrees as a normal lighthouse would work.
The problem is that on the lighthouse there is one wall that is supposed to block of the light beam (towards land), but the light fog goes right through the wall.

Anyone knows how to adjust this?

thanks

I think I recall that turning on depth map shadows for the light should cause solid objects to block the light cone.

Have you tried turning on depth map shadows in the light's properties? i made a similar light, but you have to turn on the shadows in the properties for it not to shine through an object.
