Changing the color of window light and billboards

What would be the best way to make a window look as though it's shining a different color light? I'm not just talking about the billboards that act as the rays, but the actual color of the window too. I was thinking of a really ghetto method which was to place one or more colored fog areas in the window. Or is that the way to do it? lol

RE: Changing the color of window light and billboards

You can change the color of billboards in the level editor. However, i am uncertain which functions can be used to disable (hide) billboards if any. Billboards are the best way to go since the game doesn't support volumetric lighting. Fog areas won't give a desirable effect. Color of the window may require editing the object or trying to fake it with box lights.

I created this short video to show if I got what you meant:

Just place a billboard in front of the window and use it to adjust the color of the window.
And to change the color of billboards, just connect a billboard into any light and change the color of the light with FadeLightTo function (in this video its just the lights own flicker settings changing the color).

Ah so I could use a point light! cool! I didn't mean to make them cycle through different colors, I meant a constant color, so I don't even need a function. Thanks guys! Big Grin
