// Change spot angle randomly between 'minAngle' and 'maxAngle'
// each 'interval' seconds.

var interval : float = 0.3; var minAngle : float = 10; var maxAngle : float = 90; var timeLeft : float;

var lt: Light;

function Start() { lt = GetComponent.<Light>(); lt.type = LightType.Spot;

timeLeft = interval; }

function Update () { timeLeft -= Time.deltaTime;

if (timeLeft < 0.0) { // time to change! timeLeft = interval; lt.spotAngle = Random.Range(minAngle, maxAngle); } }
