YOur best bet would probably be making a MC for each color light. Then simply
pasting each MC(color) several times on the screen to make up the desired image.
YOu could then change the "instance" of each one to "target" with the button or
whatever device your triggering the light with. Maybe a "dummy" button over the
light itself.
It seems your jorney is an easy one, but I believe that idea would be the
simplest, considering file size and creation time.

Simply put, you only have, say; 4 or 5 MCs(blue,yellow,green,red). THe trick to
trigger them is in different "instance" names for the MCs. For example; green1,
green2, green3, red1, red2, etc.
