Light can be created with command createVehicleLocal with special vehicle class "#lightpoint".
For example:
_light = "#lightpoint" createVehicleLocal pos; _light setLightBrightness 1.0; _light setLightAmbient [0.0, 1.0, 0.0]; _light setLightColor [0.0, 1.0, 0.0]; _light lightAttachObject [_object, [0,0,0]];

To clarify:
  • setLightAmbient - Terrain and surrounding objects are bathed in this colour.
  • setLightColor - Controls the "haze" seen around the lightsource (ex flares).

When both setLightAmbient and setLightColor were [0,0,0], there won’t be any visual presentation on the light source.
