How to dynamically set a light's color?

A light's intensity can be set using `A:LIGHT POTENTIOMETER:X`. However, I cannot find anything to set the color.

If this is not possible, it would be great to have simvars like `A:LIGHT EMITTER COLOR R/G/B` or something. If it's not already a thing I could convert this to an idea.

This would be useful for cabin lighting in airliners.

Hello.

There is no such SimVar at the moment.
I haven't seen this idea yet so you can create one.

Regards,
Sylvain

In the meantime if you add 3 lights (red+green+blue) on the same spot and create a control to adjust the potentiometer of each, you can get your RGB combination..
