Hi, everyone! I'm really new to modding and the Creation Kit, and I'm trying to create an interior cell. Right now, I'm having some problems with getting the windows in my cell to display light from the outside, like many windows in interior cells do in the game. How does one make that happen? I've tried the "Emittance" tab in the object properties but it just changes the window's color, and it doesn't look very good. Does the type of window matter? Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!

Edit your cell and go to lighting.

Down below you can set a sky for your cell additionally choose "Sky Lighting". This will make the light behave as if it were outside.

 

Example use:

Use one of the opaque-planes (i.e. BldGlassTransExt01Opaque). Put a light IN it. It is best to manually set the same x, y, z values for both objects.

Thanks so much to both of you, I'll try that!
