Just checking that you do know about saving radiosity data with basic textures
(or even basic objects) and no anti-aliasing etc then doing a 2nd pass of the
render where you load the radiosity data/turn on the proper textures etc.

I have in several cases done a radiosity render where I swap out my isosurfaces
for box/sphere etc (where the isosurface is not too deformed from a box. I
imagine this would work OK for your bricks.

On an image note, looks a lot better, all looks in perspective now, I do think
the wall joining the floor would be improved by a skirting board.
