Lanterns

Postby shubla » Tue Sep 29, 2015 3:35 pm

We need some good light source, that is relatively easy and cheap to keep on. That would produce a lot of light. Walking around dark village is too scary. And fireplaces every 5 tiles are no go.
For example, somekind of oil could be made. Like olive oil (or tar could be used). Lanterns would burn very long time with not much fuel. They'd be made from steel. Or iron. Could only be built on vclaims.

I would love some more fluff lighting related items for village ambiance. Might even turn off my nightvision while in town if I could light it up nicely.

Lamps made with "Strange Crystals" that turn on automatically during the night, would need occassional refueling with dreams.

Although I think I remember them saying the game couldn't handle that many lights sources at the same time or something.

I just remembered I made a similar suggestion years ago, but suggested being able to attach candles to mining supports instead, which could then act as street-lights.
Found the mock-ups I made too.

To be fair, his misunderstanding is understandable, since a "lantern" is a portable lightsource.
Lamp-post would be the proper word I believe.

thread, i necro thee!!!!

since we now have these wonderful looking sign posts. Can we have a lamp post of some shape or form akin to our sign posts? maybe we can stuff an irrlight in it to keep it forever burning, or just as a special occasion thing, we can just simply use candles. Tho the idea of having to relight them all the damn time would be kind of sad.
