Valid cat?Edit

With the advent of the personal torch (Options --> Display --> Lighting --> Personal torch checkbox) I have noticed that equipping/removing my Cloak of the Harvester no longer changes my light level. Torches are also no longer given out to newly starting characters. So is "Light Source" a valid category any longer? Are there items still extant that give light when equipped?

When I last checked, some items do so long as the personal light source is turned off (via Alt+L). There's a bug right now where it keeps turning itself back on (especially at night), but once that is fixed it should be possible to go without that light source on at all. I think that will also let you see the few colored light sources. --lordebon 11:09, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

I tried to use my Cloak's light both day and night (I prefer a frontal light source when taking mob scaps). I also tried to use my Excavation Helmet and Toggery's Tinkered Excavation Helmet so that is not my problem. But if I understand what you are saying... "normal" colored light sources such as torches, the Cloak and/or the Excavation stuff no longer work, but ones like Tish's lanterns and a luminous bottle will? Janze-Nek 11:21, 18 August 2009 (UTC)

It's buggy now, so I'm not sure if even the colored ones will currently work, I have not yet tested those in-game. But last time I checked, I wore the Excavation Helmet and it lit up the scene (that was without having the Alt+L auto-torch on, but it was in-game at that point). I need to dig out one of my colored light sources and see if they're bugged or if they work properly. But if they are not working properly it's a bug (as for many of them the color is their only purpose in existing) --lordebon 12:57, 18 August 2009 (UTC)
