Description

A Sun lamp is a device used to assist plantation growth indoors by providing artificial sunlight. It also support hydroponics basins efficiency. Sun lamps exposed to the open are vulnerable to weather, rain and snow, risking short circuit, fire explosion and damage to its surroundings. Selecting the lamp opens up it`s menu which offers the option to create a growing zone around it which exactly matches the shape of the lamp`s light radius. Once the temperature within reaches 0 grade celsius, the ground will be ready to work. Sun lamps automatically turn themselves off at night when plants are resting.

A sun lamp uses over 30 times as much power as a standing lamp does, and therefore shouldn't be used to only light up a room, especially if it's a small room.


Light radius

A Sun lamp will brightly illuminate (100%) tiles within a five-block radius. Tiles outside the highlighted area will still be illuminated, but only at 60% or less.
