Before I try and re-invent the wheel... I have a city - its sunset and so there;s a reddish glow about the atmosphere and buildings. Now I want to walk into a buildsing - so I walk through the door and ... Do I create a new light in the room and so can calculate the material properties from being inside the room - or is the global light from the sun going to interact with this ? thanks

That depends entirely on how your engine is set up to deal with light. We need more info to help you here. Are you using an existing engine, or building one of your own? Are you trying to get an HDR effect like in HL2 or do you simply want sunlight to be able to come in the windows/doors? Are you talking about per-pixel lighting or lightmapping?

The more details we have, the more we can help.
