RE: Lantern power change

You can import glowstick, that's not impossible since you can use same animations with lantern. However, if you put two pickable item as lantern and glowstick, they will activate same handobject eventually, because there is only one lantern.ho file associated with game.

RE: Lantern power change

You can access "Player" as an entity through scripting - is there some way to do the same with the lantern? You may be able to find a work around if this is the case (You can certainly change the brightness in this case, making the model appear to change would be the challenge).

RE: Lantern power change

void SetLanternActive(bool abX, bool abUseEffects);
bool GetLanternActive();
void SetLanternDisabled(bool abX);
void SetLanternLitCallback(string& asCallback);

Only ones are these. None of these could serve the purpose.

Just a small question, how do I remove the message on a door when it's unlocked? :o

I was thinking of something along the lines of this:
void SetEntityLightVisible(string entity, string light, bool visible)
    {SetLightVisible(entity+"_"+light,visible);}
This works for stuff like candles. I was hoping "lantern" would be accessible like "Player" is as an actual entity. Then all one would need to do is activate a huge point-light to be the new brighter lamp. After testing to see if I can deactivate "PointLight_1" in the lantern, I don't think this is the case (unless the game's lamp config settings are making things hard to notice, or I have missed something).

RE: Lantern power change

I am not sure about the lantern as it is a bit special, but normally you can change stuff like lights in entities by NameOfEntity_NameOfBodyWithLightAttached_NameOfLight if that was not what you already tried to do.
