Lights on inside of walls glow outside of the walls

I place a wall lamp on the inside of a wall to give light for my carpenter and weaver to work by and the glow shows on the outside of the wall.

Steps to reproduce:
Make a wall lamp
Place wall lamp on inside of completed building
wait for night
see light glow outside of the wall

Expected Results:
Glow would be on the inside of the wall only

Actual Results:
glow is not affected by wall

Versions and Mods:
R130 - No Mods

Image showing the glow with the walls “up” which looks very strange


Nice find :slight_smile: . Luckily, the lightning engine needs an overhaul anyway*, so hopefully whenever it gets done we’ll see more realistic lighting :slight_smile: .

*Unpleasant FPS lag when many lanterns are placed, for example.


thanks for the report @WxFisch! :+1:

I think this may have been mentioned before, but I would hate to step on @Phagocytosis’s toes and actually search it out… :smile:

Haha, well… I did notice at some point that the light from lamps disappears if they’re on a wall and you remove that wall from view with the building view mode toggles (although I don’t think I reported that… but it can be seen in the below video at 1:29). Which seems somewhat similar. Possibly related somehow. But I don’t think I remember a report about this precisely! So, @SteveAdamo, my toes are safely out of the way. Please go ahead :slight_smile:
