Indoor ceiling light

Lights are automatically placed when you build your Foundation with the "Auto Light" option enabled. You can also manually place them inside or outside. Their optical appearance depends on where they are placed. When inside they appear as ceiling lamps, outside they appear as lamp-posts. Only indoor lamps require Electricity to operate, but do not need a direct feed from an Electrical Cable as they are fed by small, local cables which are automatically placed for you at the ends of the nearby electrical cables.

Lighting is aesthetic only and has no effect on Prisoner or Staff performance, though it might help the player better to see what's going on in the night.


  • The objects image in game files contains sprites of light bulbs for walls and ceiling, though they were never actually used in the game.
