Techniques described:

Using a pair of buttons as a light switch to control a lamp.
Using multiple pairs of buttons to control a lamp.
Making the light from a lamp shine through a solid-brush window (or not, if the lamp is switched off).
Making the light from a torch shine through a solid-brush window (or not, if the torch is extinguished).


Experienced DromED-ers may just wish to glance at the diagrams, while beginners should follow the tutorial step-by-step.

Enjoy.

That's nice, but you don't need S&R for the torch thing.

Torches will send TurnOff/TurnOn messages along CD links when they are extinguished/lit, so you can just link the Torch to the AnimLight with a CD link.

You can also set the AnimLightPoint to be Random but Coherent, and setting the Renderer > Light Colour property to match the Torch.
