Quick Fix for Unity Stuck at Building GI Data

Unity gets stuck on "Build GI Data?"

Quick Fix for Unity Stuck at Building GI Data
Unity Editor version 2021.3.24f1 LTS was used for this tutorial

// Clean GI Cache

In the Unity Editor toolbar, go to Edit -> Preferences -> GI Cache -> Press the Clean Cache button

Note: May also help to set the Maximum Cache Size (GB) as low as possible

// Regenerate Lighting

From the toolbar again, go to Window -> Rendering -> Lighting -> have Auto Generate unchecked -> then regenerate lighting by pressing the Generate Lighting button with a down arrow icon.

You're all set to try and build again as you normally would once you are ready.

Hope it helps!
