Suggestion: Toggle daylight hotkey

Postby Inge Jones » Sat Jan 31, 2015 3:54 pm

Assuming there isn't already one I don't know about. I'd like to be able to build onto my prison at night time, but it's too dark to see what I am doing. It would be nice to simply press a key to light everything up temporarily.

I agree: night time is a bit too dark and makes it difficoult to plan. Some setting or key for increasing light would be good.

Or even a light circle around the mouse pointer would do.

A circle round the pointer wouldn't do for me, I like to be able to see the whole layout and think about where I want to build.

You could play on a really old laptop, that's what I do right now and it's always daytime. :P

But I agree that this would be a good idea. I think Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 had a system similar to this where you could control the day/night cycle as you saw fit. Seems good for a sandbox game.

No I don't think night is too dark for playing conditions. My original request I guess is really about having a "build and design mode" which is fully lit and without shadows.

Well to be fair the light thing is pretty useless.

Let's buy a floodlight instead. Also useful at getting escaping prisoners. (If manned by a guard or workman, he would point it to incidents automatically, bringing attention to other guards.)

Nothing more fun than a yard fight at 2 AM shined by powerful lighting effects.

A Toggle daylight button would be great to have, before you have any Prisoners in your Prison.

This is not a problem at all. I pause my prison the moment i start up. Plan the entire thing out. And by the time it starts to get dark i already have some foundations ready for interior work. And i don´t really need light anyway. I could do it in the dark. But the 24 hour cycle is needed.
