    You need Half-Life Model Viewer
    1. Open the model of your streetlamp using hlmv.exe
    2. Select "Textures" -> find the texture you need to make additive (in our case, the light bulb - wall_light_bulb.bmp -> Set "Additive" flag on - > Save model as.
    3. The light bulb of this model will be additive now and you can add light entity through VHE/J.A.C.K.
    4. This method works only with models like that, where light bulbs are made by separated texture from the other body parts.
