Recently I've started a new deed deep in a pine forest. I have some lamps and they are great for adding ambience to the deed at night. However, once they turn off for the day/night cycle, its still very dark in the deed/buildings because of shadows from the trees. Eventually the sun comes up higher and lights the deed nicely, but in the morning or evening when there's lots of shadows from trees, its very dark, and the lamps don't turn on. (Right now I'll have to turn the ones on manually that I want.)
I'd like to be able to keep lamps/torches on all the time or even better have more control of the cycle that they follow for turning on and off. Its my understanding that a GM can change a lamp to "Always Lit" and would love to have this option as a player. I'm not looking for no fuel required, I'm happy for it to burn fuel. Just more control so I'm not in the dark during the day.
If something like this exists, I'd love to be directed towards it. It sounds like it may have to be server-side rather than client side.
Also I'd like to hear what other players do to combat being in the dark, on deed, outside of lantern on/off cycle.
Thanks for reading.
