Oh god Oh god Oh god... they're coloured and those colours look like they can blend... they don't appear to be confined to a single layer... layers can be lighted with varying strengths...

I just had a MAJOR nerdgasm over this! It's everythign I've ever dreamed about in a lighting system; Terraria and the upcoming Starbound are the only sandbox games which can rival the apparent capabilities of this lighting mechanism, in this one is in glorious isometric 3D!

I may have just set back my quest for impartiality and "fair consideration" on the internet by another ten years (yeah like that was ever going to happen anyway :?), but IMHO this is the single most epic thing to come out of gaming design (especailly the Indie field) in a long time... I mean, the lighting systems in geniously innovative games (Minecraft) and even many AAA titles don't come close tothis capability. This is seriously almost as powerful as a CAD-style program, but so simple and elegant. Sure, the blending might only be on a block-by-block basis, but lighting systems are notoriously tricky things to build and this takes the (newly implemented) cake for sure.

Thankyou Devs, this is why you guys need to keep doing what you do. I doubt even the hardcore haters will complain about this... at least, not much :roll:.

Now we have light how about power sources? As all lighting needs a source so maybe coal power plant, Solar, Wind or Hydro.

Lights are great ! It would be even greater with a day/night cycle :)
For the power source, maybe we'll have to craft candle to put inside ?
