Outdoor Lighting

Description
Introduces a number of options for outdoor lighting.

Your colonists move slower and work slower when they are in the dark, but having a network of standing lamps around the gardens and outside of your base is a drain on power when they are busy working during the day.

Sure, you could flag them all to be turned off and a colonist could do that every morning, switching them back on again every evening, or .... you could have lamps that automatically turn themselves off during the day!

Clean and stackable, as it makes no changes to existing items in the game. All items are found on the furniture tab.

Includes:
  • Garden Lanterns - including pumpkin lanterns!
  • Garden Lamps - auto power-off during the day, in a variety of colours.
  • Solar-powered Garden Lamps - auto power-off during the day, in a variety of colours.
  • Lamp Posts / Street Lamps - also auto power-off during the day, in a variety of colours.

Garden Lanterns
There are three garden lanterns available that can be built without any research needed. Functionally, they are the same as a torch, but hold twice as much "fuel" lasting for 20 days without needing to be re-fuelled.
  • Standard garden lantern - gives off a slightly yellow light.
  • Garden lantern (blue) - the same as the standard lantern, but with slightly different graphics and a blue tint to the light.
  • Pumpkin lantern - there are no pumpkins on the rim, so this is carved from wood and reinforced with a bit of steel.

Outdoor Lamps
A variant of the vanilla Standing Lamp..
  • Alternative graphics for the lamps.
  • Must research Electricity before it is available to build.
  • The outdoor lamps automatically turn off at 07:00 to save power during the day. They automatically turn back on at 17:00.
  • Once Colored Lighting has been researched, they can be built in a variety of colours, including: red, blue, green, purple, and orange.

Outdoor Solar Lamp
Identical to the Outdoor Lamp from this add-on, except:
  • Must research Solar Panels before it is available to build.
  • No need to run power to these lamps - they power themselves by absorbing energy during the day! They can also be easily moved when needed.
  • Visually different - the small solar panel can be seen by the lamp, making it easy to see which lamps are which.

Lamp Posts / Street Lamps
Taller and more powerful than the standard lamp:
  • Larger pool of light, in a variety of colours (requires Colored Lighting has been researched).
  • Provides limited cover in a gun fight.
  • Visually different to standards lamps - when placing, circle shows approximate area that will be lit.

Floodlights!
  • 6x the power of a regular lamp, covering light in a radius of 15 squares.

I got back into Rimworld again recently, so I'm planning to try to figure this - currently I'm just using the inverse of the sunlamp timing. To allow custom time set-up (or the ability to just switch on when it's dark) requires C# coding, which I haven't done in Rimworld yet (but will try).

@stormknight Could you include a feature to manually set light schedules or to react with lighting levels? My Ice Sheet is dark for half the year sooo my outdoor lights don't function practically.

Awesome thanks!

You can add it to existing saves, sure!
It doesn't change any existing content - just adds new objects.

This seems like a great mod! Can't wait to try it. Is it safe to add to an existing save or do I need to start a new Save to use it?

when i click the large square spot light thing (the largest one), it kills my game immediately, causing the UI to vanish, the game to freeze, and makes it incredibly difficult to force close the game without doing a hard reset.

How do I get the Jack-O-Lantern?

Thank you for making this mod! That is really a nice one .And I am a Chinese player. I am here for that I hope you can allow me to share the Chinese version of this module in our forum.Because it will be welcomed around more players, I think.I guarantee that it will not be maliciously tampering or used for commercial purposes.Then I will attach the creator, your name to it. Would you allow me to do this? Happy if you can reply
