I am finding this a little tricky when lighting a night scene now since having the shadow on slows down the performance to a point I can not even work on it. If I have them off It is a poor representation of what it is actually going to look like when rendered. I am always toggling back and forth. Also, I think it would be a nice to actually have the ability for the lights NOT cast shadows if you choose. In some cases I really like how the models look when the shadows are not casting, it gives it some GI bonce look if set up right. One could lower the intensity of the light not casting shadows, then use a light that cast shadows as the direct light.
