In the level I am currently hard at work on, I have a scene were you continue to talk, and spot lights start to appear on a object, I want to know how I can keep them off, until Sackboy reaches a certain point, or create the illusion of that happening.
Any tips, suggestions, or just plain out telling me how to do it would be great.
Thanks in advance!

use a sensor switch
You can have the option to have lights off?

By the way, anyone know if there's a way to actually make lights? Or are there just the 5-6 preset ones you unlock in the game?
Would be nice if MM added a Glowy material later >3
ok this has actually been REALLY bugging me. i've been messing with some lights and you can't actually turn them off or on with a switch, you can only effect the RADIUS of the light that they throw. meaning, you can't effect the BRIGHTNESS. so even though they don't light up a scene, you can CLEARLY see the light bulb illuminated. has anyone figured ot a way to make the light bulb itself go from totally dark to very bright?
Though, I was using the mine light, so maybe some of the other lights have different or limited properties.
You can also make the light gradually dim and brighten using a mag key on a motorized wheel with a mag switch set to speed, I think. I saw that in one of the Metropolis story mode levels.
Hmm, it works fine for me, it's pretty simple really, what I do is have 4 spotlights on the ceiling, theyre turned on, and I have the radius set perfectly for how I want them, now, what I used was a sensor switch, I attached the sensor switch to a block of dissolve tool which is attached to a magnetic key, when sackboy activates the sensor, it reacts by dissolving the block, releasing the magnetic key, which drops down to a magnetic key switch, and this switch would be attached to the light, settings for the switch would be On/Off, so it would always turn on after the key drops down to the switch.
In basic terms, have a sensor switch attached to dissolve tool which is holding a magnetic key, when the dissolve material "lets go" of the key, have a magnetic key switch next to the "landing zone" with a radius big enough to recognize the key, and have the magnetic key switch attached to the light with the "On/Off" setting.
Hope I helped!
