Hey I wanted to know how you add the lights to the ships when you are rigging them?
-Clone the main hull. -Delete from the clone hull all the parts without window lights or parts without lights. -Edit textures from it and make black all the image without lights, save it with other name as by example texturelights. -Add this texture to the clone hull with a mesh additive, it makes the black transparent.
And next you will have a ship with lights on windows.
