Default Lights on an object (Space ship)

what is the best way to create LED style lights, i was hopin my mother ship would have some lights from inside. although i really like the colored point lighting that i've been playing around with.

for reference see my VFX for movie forum

you could try and add a glow intensity to a shader to get it to "light up"

yup... and also you could up the incandescence value of the shader to get it self-illuminate...

Actually i posted this in the wip forum, but maybe you guys could help me with something. I did do an incandescent map, but i wanted to make lots of different coloured litghts, but when i use more than one color it doesn't work(if you use only red, white and black, it works fine). Anyone know a way to do this? A layered shader "sounds" right to me, but i don't know much about them, or how to use them.

here is my Movie thread in the WIP forum. The mothership with all the lights is at the bottom.
