Playing around with lights

As you know lights aren't always white. They also have colours like orange, blue etc. This is what I want to teach you in this small tutorial. So first of all load the map of the last tutorial and select one of the two lights (shift+left mouse button click on one of the lights):

(Image selected light)

Now press k to open the "Choose Color" window:

(Image choose color)

After that play around with the color settings, first by clicking on the circle, then on the triangle. I will convert it into an orange light:

(Image orange)

When you have chosen your color for the light click on the "OK" button and the light should have the color you've just selected:

(Image orange light)

The last step you have to do is to compile the map. If you put lights into your map you have to compile with the parameter -light. If you use -light -fast they will be presented brighter than they are. But -light needs longer to compile. So that's why you should use the second parameter to test the lights. That's all! Wasn't very hard, was it?
