can anyone help me to figure out what i should do to make the light not go so far, and only be comming out of the vent? i would love any help.

I think you can do that using the “Sphere” option in the light settings and by playing a bit with the “Dist” value.

Looks good so far. Re the lighting; do a search on this site for “freighter”. At the begining of November I posted a freighter project that I was working on. Scroll down to the 2nd image. For the intakes on the side I put a couple of red area lights with a low energy setting inside the intakes. This produced a glow on the side of the ship. Have a look and see if this is the lighting effect you need.

I located the jpg of the freighter for you to have look at. This was my 1st blender project.
