Planting lamps on submerged tiles

Recommended Posts

It would be helpful if one could plant and bless lamps on tiles partially submerged, or in shallow water. Rule should be that the lamp head must not be submerged, and planting/blessing only possible on tiles which can be reinforced or paved.

What about buoys?

Buoys are great in deeper water. I find them bit strange in locations you can walk, ride, and drive. It simply does not look good. Granted they are a real progress to not being able to illuminate at all.

 

To add that: There are partially submerged tiles or those with very shallow water where buoys won't float and lamps cannot be planted.

I belive the trick is to plant first and then lower ground afterwards?

Not very practical if you mining a tunnel.

An easier workaround is to plant them and then push them into the water.  It works but it's still an unnecessary and annoying pita, imo.  Especially if doing a lot of lamps.

Big +1 from me. Would like to be able to plant other tall things like banners, too.

Odd that you cannot, as you can plant small braziers underwater already.

Relying on cats-eyes as under-water lighting to navigate through our tunnel at the moment.

 

It's rather like swimming the length of an Olympic pool.
