The Deets

everything you need to know

There are three light styles:

  • ceiling lights
  • wall/under shelf lights
  • floor spot lights

The light objects are little arrows/cones that give you an idea of the direction of the light. Because I wanted to give you the ability to hide these lights and also have full control over color/dimming so I built these a bit differently than my previous hidden items.

When you first place them, they will be visible (but still tiny). You can make them invisible both in build/buy mode and live mode! In both cases, you just need to place the light switch controller on the lot. To quickly make them invisible, you can hop into live mode and click on the light switch and choose ‘Hide All’. If you don’t want to go through the hassle of moving in a family, all you need to do is reload the lot after placing the light switch.

Anytime you reload the lot, it will test if there is a light switch controller or not. If there is one present, then all the hidden lights will automatically turn invisible. And if there is not light controller, then the hidden lights will automatically become visible.

This approach also gives you the ability to control the hidden lighting color & dimming  settings in live mode. You can set the lights individually like typical lamps and also change their settings all at once using the light switch controller.
