The $selfillum VMT command makes a material glow in the dark. Shaders commonly support this effect.

The effect is masked by default by the alpha channel of $basetexture, but there are other options (see below). Wherever the mask is located, white areas are self-illuminated while black areas are not.

Warning: Cannot be used with $translucent or similar values on models. To do: Possible fix?

VMT syntax example

$selfillum <bool>
LightmappedGeneric
{
    $basetexture props/tvscreen005a

    $surfaceprop glass
}

Adjusts the colour of the self-illumination effect. Default value is "[1 1 1]".
