Hello everyone! 

Zeus asked me about the lamp in this image, so thought I'd post some info here.

ProWalker still doesn't support colored LEM materials, but for a globe pendant you can fake it to some degree by putting the light emitting material on a sphere inside the outer glass component.  As long as you use a relatively high diffuse value on the outer shell it should retain some of the color you've assigned to the outer material.

It also creates a nice "dimmer around the edges" effect that you sometimes see with frosted glass... if you wanted this to be less noticeable I think you could just reduce the gap between the inner and outer components.

Please don't mind the floor, the texture got scrambled but I didn't think it was distracting enough to worry about.



If you want it, here's the lamp (it's not from Browser)Colored globe pendant

Thanks for sharing, Justin!
You made an ingenious and tricky skill that I never thought about before!
Though in the later version of PW can support colored Lem, it still works when it comes to make a less noticeable lamp.
