    I'm currently working on some designs for my new map, and I'm curious if its possible to have a light cycle through a preset color list? Similar to the following video:

    I searched through the forums, and couldn't find an answer to my question. :c Hopefully it is possible!

    couldn't you just make lots of light_spot entities with different colours, and use a timer or something and enable/disable them?

    I'm not entirely sure...

    I recommend making a self illuminating animated texture

    Unfortunately, it is not possible to change colors via the I/O system. You would need to do as midget or Z33 recommend. Either make a texture, or rig a timer to switch between a bunch of individual lights. Depending on the number of colors/lights, using an animated texture would be significantly less expensive, but also more difficult.
