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.

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.

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
