[A17] LED Lights (Redux) v. 1.1 (2017-05-27)
« on: January 18, 2017, 08:06:48 AM »

LED Lights (Redux)

Description
This mod is a full rewrite of Loki88's LED Lights Mod, with his permission of course. There are some re-balances and additions, the textures are either brought over from the original mod or adapted from them. LED Lights adds a range of rope and ceiling lights, as well as growing lights and a medical light.
There are three research projects: LED Lights requires Electricity, after that and Colored Lights you can research LED Growing Lights, followed by LED Medical Lights.

I do not recommend adding this to an existing save as there have been issues with lights replacing ore. If you do want to try, back up your save first! As far as I can tell, there is nothing in the code that could cause that and nothing I can do to fix this. But if anyone has more information, please do let me know.




All of the Lamps

- LED Rope Lights: A tiny lamp that is draggable like a power conduit. They consume 1W per segment, can be placed on walls and must be directly connected to power. Rope lights will transmit power like a conduit. After researching Colored Lights, seven more colours will be available. Each segment can light up a 3x3 area.
- LED Rope Growing Lights: They work exactly as normal rope lights, but will light the area of effect brightly to allow full-speed plant growth. Each segment uses 5W.
- LED Lights: Perfect for lighting up small areas and only uses 7W. The radius will be visible before you place the blueprint and when selecting the constructed lamp. The same seven colours are avaiable after researching Colored Lights.
- Wide Range LED Lights: A somewhat more powerful version of the LED Light, consumes 15W.
- HID LED Lights: A more powerful version of the LED Lights, the features are the same, but it has a larger radius and consumes 25W. In addition to the coloured variants I have included a square version that is centered on a 2x2 area (this one will not show its radius as that just turned out derpy).
- Wide Range HID LED Lights: If you really need some silly lighting. Uses 40W. Slightly OP and the game doesn't like lighting up areas that big. Don't like it: don't use it. ;)
- LED Growing Lights: This power-saving sunlamp alternative comes in three sizes (150, 96 and 69W). They're expensive to build, though! The lights will also display their radii and allow for one-click creation of growing zones. Will now turn off automatically at night.
- LED Medical Lights: A light specifically created for hospital rooms, providing a 5x5 brightly lit area. When placed near medical beds it will function like a weaker vitals monitor. Consumes 69W.

Hey there, added the mod mid-game and now all the steel ores on the map are LED lights. Would be great if you can help out because I don't want to create a new colony. :D Except that, I love this mod! LEDs ftw!

I'm glad y'all like the LEDs. :D

Yeah, generally I wouldn't recommend adding things without starting a new colony. That kind of issue happens a lot, like terrain turning into sand when adding new floors. It doesn't make sense, because there's nothing in the code that should cause that. I suspect it's a matter of the game going "there's a new thing that wasn't there before. I'll just put it there and hope that's right."
I'm afraid there are no changes I could make to fix that, this is simply not on my end. :(

Can confirm wonky behavior with unstocked (read: not in stockpile) steel:

Would be good to include notes that the mod is only compatible with new colonies.

Nice mod but a little OP with having power lines integrated and costing silver only.

I had added a note earlier, but have now moved it to make it more obvious. Wish I knew for sure what caused that issue.
Balancing is an ongoing process for most mods and I definitely will do some math to figure out costs/savings. Mostly the aim is to increase building costs to balance the power savings, but making rope lights too expensive makes them kind of useless, too.

Thanks man, I have been wanting this mod for a while since I had it in a13. I love that the led lights use less electricity, which makes the graph in colony manage look prettier, as well as my colony. Can the rope lights be placed on walls like they used to originally?

Yep, they go on walls just like they used to. :D
(Also I'm gonna read "man" as a generic term for "person." ;) )

Hello,

I've also been waiting for this mod to come back so I'm very glad to see it. I have however one issue, the More Furniture patch, More Furniture comes with an .xml to make it compatible with [SD] medicaddons: https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=26276.msg273452#msg273452

You'll find that and the instructions on how to do this in the Alternatives folder in MF:
workshop\content\294100\739089840\Alternatives

Loading the LED More Furniture patch kills the linking between MF beds and SD medic equipment, how do I fix that? I've tried playing around some with  <linkableFacilities> coding, but I just can't seem to get it to work.

You used the file found in MF and not the one provided by SD, right? Because that changes how I would fix that.
I won't have time to really look into it until tomorrow but I should be able to make you a fix (I hope, because I haven't actually used SD medic so far). The only reason you're not getting one right now is that it's the middle of the night and I'm too sleepy to make much sense of anything.  ;)
If you want to play around with it yourself: MF adds the facilities to each bed individually, so you should be able to build a patch by stealing mine and just adding all of the facilities to each bed. Then load the new patch last.
SD's compatibility version is a bit different, as it adds a kind of base bed, which links to all facilities.

Yes, I used the file provided in the alternative folder that comes with MF, main reason for that is since MF updated recently and changed a bit which made that the easier approach, you had to replace/rebuild all the end tables to not run into bugs etc. Loading LED Lights alone or combined with the MF patch breaks the linking between those two mods. I've tried making my own patch but so far I must admit it haven't really worked out so any help would be appreciated :)

Give this a try, worked for me so far. I'll add it to the download list and Steam after some more testing. Hope this fixes it for you! :D
