Uber light(s) question

I'm thinking of purchasing this product from the Daz store:

http://www.daz3d.com/shop/environments-props/interiors/recreation-room

It claims that the following lights are needed:

UberPoint
UberSpot
UberEnvironment

I'm running 4.5 and I believe the Environment light came bundled with the DS download but I have no idea whether or not I need to purchase the Point and/or Spot lights in order to use the lighting preset that would come with the purchase.

I'm not particularly inclined to buy something I might already have, so any help would really be appreciated.

    I'd say they were only required if you wanted to use the built in light set...

    Obviously, if the Uber lights aren't used (Environment would be, since it is included) the lighting would need to be redone..and not quite match the promos (Uber points and spots have falloff and some other options...like the use of gels/gobos).

    Thanks for the reply.

    I would like to use the lighting preset that comes with the package and I guess I really just want to know if the Spot and/or Point came bundled like the Environment or if they are separate purchases.

    DS does have linear point lights now.

    And it's not that hard to set up a gel light in ShaderMixer, either, but the preset for that set would still be Uber.
