A sun lamp provides artificial sunlight enabling plants to grow indoors. It can be used in conjunction with hydroponics basins. Sun lamps need to be protected by a roof, otherwise exposure to rain and snow will cause a short circuit with a fiery explosion. Sun lamps don't produce heat, so temperature control devices may be required to maintain a healthy temperature for plants. Selecting the lamp opens its menu which offers the option to create a growing zone around it which exactly matches the shape of the lamp's light radius. Sun lamps automatically turn themselves off at night when plants are resting. The excess power produced during the night can be saved up by employing batteries.

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.
