Lighting overhaul

As the meeting with Ken post mentioned, lighting needed to be addressed. I looked online and found a video on rag3dviz.com, (http://rag3dviz.com/tutorial/hdri-lighting-in-unreal-engine/) of someone creating some really nice lighting with HDRI effects. I searched online for free HDRI sites and found some really good ones.
