VAB - SPH Lights Off

Recommended Posts

Often I use Lights to make a Space Station look really nice in the darkness of Space but when building a Station in the Hangars I only have a vague idea of what it will look like in Space because I can't get a preview of what it would look like in the Dark. I would like to suggest a Lights Out Setting for the Hangars to give us this ability.

So there was a mod called Lights Out that did this. It turned off all of the VAB/SPH lights, made it night outside, and turned on all of your lights. 

I found it on SpaceDock, but it's for 1.3.1. It would probably need a touch of love and care to get it to work; that is, if it doesn't work in 1.4.X already. I haven't exactly had a chance to test it.

Adding this as a stock feature would be nice, but what can you do? :)

The author of the lights out mod @RealGecko is actually looking for someone to take over the mod. So if anyone is up for the task?


I'm not the author, I was just supporting it for a very long time :D

Anyway anyone willing to continue support?

Hey @linuxgurugamer, interested in supporting yet another mod? :D

I already looked at it.  Not really interested, I don't think it's working too well, there is something going on with the lights where they don't dim enough, but I'll take another look in 1.4.3 (last time I looked was 1.4.1)

I just recompiled and tested it.  While the lights do out out in the VAB, the vessel itself, doesn't lose any lighting.  So it's more of an atmosphere thing rather than being able to do what it was made for.

I'll think about it, but I won't be able to put much time into it

The mod still works in 1.4.3 perfectly fine. I've been using it recently without any problems. ;) 

I doubt it.  The lights do go out, but the vessel is still lit.  The whole idea behind this mod was to turn off the lights so you could see what it looks like in the dark
