ive found that lights wont animate, so if you are thinking of a spotlight that rotates it wont work.

you can make a spotlight look from a series of omni lights, placed aproximatly 1/2 meter apart or less starting from .25 meter far atenuation working your way up to whatever you want. whats in the SS below goes from .25 to 3 meters. it crashes the soed when trying to adjust the lights themselves so the color is max's, and if you save as a .3dp without changing the lights it will crash when opening the .3dp. another issue is in a long line of the lights, as you look down it it will be as bright or brighter than the sun in the game

but if your looking for a static light with no animation, that doesnt go far then this will work for something like a billboard light or a similar small spotlight affect. just start your numbers from a much smaller one then gradualy move up to the final size. a 1 meter line could have 5 to 10 lights to get the proper affect....

Wow that is awesome, shame it wont work at big distances though but still, its something, anyway i could get the Max file from you? i can recreate if needed, would just save me some time.

Thanks for taking the time to figure this out though,

great work!

the max file i have no longer has the lights included, i shouldve thought to atleast save the light part of it though before removing.....

just start by puting the lights in a line, keep the first few close together while gradualy moving apart until they are about 1/2 meter then keep that distance for the rest of the lights in the series. when it gets imported to the soed and you see small balls of light then go back to max and move them closer together and test again. you can also make the beam go wider in a shorter distance by doing every other number or every third, or make it thinner by doing each one twice. play with it and you may figure out a better way than i did.

its tedious work though, and as you can see from the ss is i messed up the size increments of a few which are the brighter parts of the beam.
