    Is there any entity or texture so you can tell it to block light and set the ammount of light you want to let pass through?

    The best solution is probably to just block the light completely and create a new light source
    with your desired effects (on the other side).

    There is a blocklight texture but that blocks light completely, it acts like a normal brush in that respect but everything can pass though it as though it isnt there (as it is ignored by everything except for RAD)

    you can make a thin slice of glass texture and do basic func_wall -> texture -> 0-255, then use an outer brush on the skin of the glass that allows light to pass through.
