Lighthouses emit light at night#1532

At night, the lighthouse will be “activated” and start emitting light around it.

+1 would love to see this implemented

There is a light prefab available for mapmakers to make lighthouses emit light at night which is visible on a great distance. I don’t know why it’s not officially implemented though.

It only makes sense.

and actually hopefully cast proper light against the environment, instead of being a typical static light source that doesn’t case any light to the environment.

The lighthouse would need to be manned and activated for that. Not to mention it would need work done to the light to replace it and fix any wiring issues. Where would all that come from? Just like other monuments, everything is broken down.

Better yet would be an early game event where a ship docks with low tier loot

I agree with you Squeeze that it while it is abandoned (well, sort of - see Outpost), the design of the lighthouse is actually based on a real one used in the Soviet days that had a tiny nuclear reactor in it for power. That reactor could be made into a cool new card-locked basement feature. Force them to spawn on the corners of the map as well and you’ve got a decent early-game monument with a later-game twist: if nuclear power ever becomes a thing, that basement is where you’d get the uranium.

Spot down cargo as it drives by

Maybe if it was player activated, like slap some lowgrade inside at the top and flick a switch. Not sure about a major purpose to it, maybe it would create a circle of light that swivels around the local area but other than that not much purpose other than letting everyone know “Hey someone is in the lighthouse.” Lol
