Surface Mounted Lights
The stock light parts are designed to light the distant objects. However, the station itself needs some lighting to be usable when passing thru the dark side of the celestial body. The lighting parts in this mod are designed to highlight the surface, on which they are mounted.
Illuminates a small area on the vessel's surface.
Illuminate the parts and objects at a small distance.
4Way Spot light
A special version of the spot light that emits light in 4 perpendicular directions. Each light can be adjusted and controlled independently.
- All lights allow setting the color of the light.
- The stock lights get an ability to change the lens color. It make them looking much cooler.
