Lights are organizational structures that illuminate an area. Each Light allows 2 power connections, making it possible to daisy-chain them.

The color and intensity of Lights can be adjusted, either separately (excluding the Wall Mounted Flood Light) or using a Lights Control Panel.

As of Update 5, both Lights and the Lights Control Panel require different materials than previously to unlock them in the Awesome Shop. Lights require Quickwire and Lights Control Panel require AI Limiters. These will also not be visible in the Shop before they may be purchased.

Construction[]

When placing down Lights, a holographic arrow will be shown at the base of the light to indicate the light direction. The angle of Flood Lights can be tilted: while building, the first click places the light down and the 2nd click confirms the build. Before the 2nd click, the angle can be adjusted with Middle. The adjustable angles are between 30 degrees to 90 degrees (directly down) in intervals of 5 degrees.

The Lights Control Panel and Wall Mounted Flood Light have no collision. The Flood Light Tower has a much smaller collision than it seems: only 4 x 4 m, and its light panel has no collision at all. The Street Light has collision only at its vertical pole. Street Lights can also be placed between Fences.

Usage[]

Interacting E with a Lights Control Panel, Street Light or Flood Light Tower will bring up a menu where light settings can be changed. Connecting multiple lights through a Light Control Panel changes the settings of all connected lights, should the connection not be interrupted by any other Light Control Panel or Power Switch. Ceiling Lights and Wall Mounted Flood Lights can only be controlled via a Light Control Panel.

The Light Control Panel must be connected to two power lines : the power input, and the power output able to control lights. The output plug is slightly higher and indicated with a light bulb symbol.

Light settings:

  • 7 color slots, each can be customized similar to a Color Gun
  • Light intensity, or brightness
  • Night mode, making the light(s) only turn on during the night
  • The on/off switch

As with factory buildings, the configuration of individual lights can be copied and pasted, using Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V. Light(s) routed through a Lights Control Panel can be easily turned off by flicking its standby switch.
