Bug Description

Allow warheads to temporarily change the lighting when they impact. Currently this seems to be hardcoded to only happen with the [Nuke] warhead.

No, this is currently by the SW.Light tags.

But I agree. It would be nice.

You can actually invoke the nuke flash effect by calling the warhead with the ID 'NUKE' from a normal weapon. The sole exception is that it does not work if called from a death weapon which explains it's absence when nuclear reactor goes boom in RA2/YR.

So no, it's not technically solely limited to superweapons, altough it would be a nice idea to expand on this.

I don't think so, 407 wants the victim unit get coloured with a special tint, this one asks for a map-wide recolour like the one caused by the nuke.
