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.
