Hello, I am trying to figure out how to make a light come on in game at 2100 hours instead of being on all the time. Is this something that needs a script to work or am I missing something? Thanks for any advice.

Why didn't you examine the usual lights on a map, eg. street lamps?
Yes, they are controlled by a script. They use the user attribute:
<Attribute name="onCreate" type="scriptCallback" value="Nightlight2.onCreate"/>

Thank you for your input, I did look at the original map lights but only in GE not in the script as I am kinda new at this and not sure what script to look at of how to go about adding line to make them work. I am trying to teach myself as I go and this forum is great for learning. Thank you!

I found it! I was looking at the light itself and not the transform group, I tried it on my map and it works perfect! Thank you so much for your help!
