A wooden torch for lighting an area. Can be automatically refueled with wood. Produces a small amount of heat.

It lights an area of 5x5 around it to 50%, and gradually decreases further out from there. Note that this is not enough to grow plants, which require 51% or higher.

It is constructed with Wood.png 20 Wood in 100 ticks (1.67 secs).

It consumes 2.2 units of wood every day, so 20 wood is enough for 9 days and 2 hours.
When in snow or rain, it will consume 1 additional wood for every 27.78 seconds spent in rain.

It is generally not resource and work-time efficient to use once Electricity has been researched, however its grid independence and immunity to power outages and solar flares make it very useful in niche applications even beyond this point.
