Basic Information[]

You can find multiple forms of lighting in Creativerse, like torches, lamps, lanterns, arctek lightings, candles, as well as campfires and fire pits.

Please note that blocks and objects that do not illuminate their surrounding but simply glow or sport glowing parts are not "lightings" per se. While they are listed on this page at the desire of the original contributor of this article to cover all sorts of information about light in Creativerse, not all of them are listed as luminaires in the crafting menu of the game.

For an overview of only the craftable actual torches and lamps that can be found in the "Lighting" section of the crafting menu, please refer to the Wiki category page Lighting.

Like their tooltips explain, lamps, torches and other types of "real" lightings will prevent Creatures (except for Keepas and NPCs like Elfis) but also random Treasure Chests from spawning nearby, at least on all illuminated natural blocks around the light source.

Light "levels" for farming[]

In general, there are no light levels in Creativerse.

Crops do not need any light to grow on tilled land (that can be produced with a Plow), they just need moisture, either Water, Mineral Water or Bog Water (not too much of the latter) placed directly adjacent to each tilled block.

Mushroom Spores will also grow into Mushrooms within 10 minutes (or instantly when fertilized with Pigsy Droppings) without requiring any light.

Queen Bees will also turn into Beeswax in dark places, like underground. And Seashells will appear on blocks of Sand (usually the more and the faster if Water or other suitable liquids are nearby) no matter if it's dark.

Tree Saplings however only seem to grow on the surface under the sky. Contrary to their tooltips, they do not need Water nor any other liquids nearby to grow though.

Growth time is checked in real time just like for Seeds, Mushroom Spores and Queen Bees, which will also include offline times. So trees, crops and beeswax will grow without requiring the presence of any player characters. Still, they might change to their currently correct growth state optically all of a sudden as soon as a player character gets close enough.

Effects of daylight and artificial lights on Creatures[]

All Creatures will usually only spawn on or next to specific natural blocks (like Rambeaus on Peakstone, Blizzard Chizzards on Snow and Ice, or Corrupted Creatures on Corrupted Blocks), but only if there is no artificial illumination placed nearby, which even applies to diurnal Creatures and also to randomly spawning Treasure Chests that will not appear on blocks that are illuminated by lamps or torches.

Diurnal Creatures will only spawn from approx. 5:12 AM to 10:43 PM in-game time as displayed in the top right corner of your screen with a "sun" symbol to the right, but less directly during dusk. After nightfall and until the next morning, no diurnal more Creatures will spawn. Already spawned daylight Creatures will not vanish just because it has gotten dark though.

Nocturnal Creatures usually start to spawn at ca. 10:34 to 10:43 PM in-game time. However, when day dawns (at and after 5:12 AM), actual Night Creatures and some Underground Creatures will go up in blue flames and then quickly perish, while not leaving any loot bags behind.

And at this point of time, the light of day is a factor to be considered, because in dark areas these sunlight-intolerant Creatures are actually able to survive. Night Creatures that typically spawn underground will not die during the day either, only when being "hit" by daylight.

This applies to Night Pigsies, Night Hoglets, Night Leafies, Night Twiggies, Night Rocksters, Night Chizzards, Mirus and Arctic Mirus, as well as to Hot Feet.

General properties of lamps, torches and most objects with glowing parts[]

All illuminated objects in Creativerse are ever burning and do not need any Fuel.

Most luminaires can be placed on any side of a block including the bottom of a block for a nice ceiling light.

You can fully rotate lamps into all directions by pointing your cursor at them, then pressing and holding R (as the default key) and then moving the mouse while holding down the left mouse button. The chosen rotation angle can be "locked" too by simply typing "r" while looking at a rotated item, so that all lamps of the same stack in the chosen quickslot will then face the same direction when being placed.

Since update R32 in June 2016, all crafted blocks can be picked up without needing any Power Cells to be equipped.

Since update R33 in August 2016 most lamps, including Arctek "Torches" and Fire Pits can be turned on an off now (activate them by typing "f" as the default key or clicking your right mouse button while looking at them). You can also use Switches, Number Pads, Sensors and/or Pressure Plates for activation/deactivation of all types of lamps that you can wire them to. This also holds true to many machines like LEDs, but generally does not apply to torches - most torches cannot be wired.

Burning Lights[]

These lights with open flames - mainly torches - are the most common lights in Creativerse, mainly Moss Torches and Coal Torches, since these two require only very common resources to be crafted and can also occasionally be collected from Treasure Chests and Creatures. Torches cannot be wired, while most other objects sporting open flames can be can be wired to activation devices, optionally with operating gates in between, ever since update R33 in August 2016. Lighting sources with open flames give off small amounts of heat such as the Moss Torch, Coal Torch, Campfire and Fire Pits. By placing three torches next to each other on Snow (or Ice) and standing on them, the cold meter (freeze gauge) can be lowered and then dispersed in cold biomes.

Fire warning[]

Torches (that have no collision and cannot be wired) and other objects with open fires may cause a Fire in warm to hot biomes and layers if placed above (or especially under) flammable blocks like tree Leaves, any Wood blocks like on trees, Shredded Leaves blocks, Thatched Walls, Blue Carpets (since update R52), Red Carpets, Yellow Carpets, Wood Walls, Wood Floors and many other crafted wooden blocks, Wood Tables, Wood Chairs and other wooden furniture. Tar is the one substance that can be set ablaze most easily.

Please note that in warm to hot biomes flames are able to spread to any nearby flammable blocks and materials (including crafted wooden blocks and wooden furniture), and such can burn down a forest or wooden building to nothingness. This spreading of fire can be stopped by claiming the area (the advanced option for spreading fires is switched off by default) or by disabling the world option "fire spreading" by world owners. Spreading fires cannot be stopped/doused by using Water, other liquids nor cold materials like Snow or Ice on the flames.

Torches[]

All torches will extrude liquids like Water (but will set Tar on fire), and will nonetheless allow player characters to take up the same space of block where they are placed without blocking the way. In this way torches can be used to create air pockets under water. Torches cannot be wired nor doused.

Other light sources with open flames[]

Lamps[]

Most lamps are brighter than torches, meaning that they can illuminate more blocks that surround them. Since update R33 in August 2016 all lamps can be turned on an off now. You can activate and deactivate them by typing "f" as the default key or clicking your right mouse button while looking at them.

You can also wire lamps to activation devices like Switches, Number Pads, Sensors and/or Pressure Plates and you can use these devices for activation/deactivation from a distance - of all lamps that are wired to them. By wiring operating gates in between the activation devices and lamps, you can use number codes (Number Comparison Gates), define timed activation (Delay Gates, Flip-Flop Gates) or even puzzles (Logic Gates, Inverter Gates) to activate and/or deactivate lamps.

By disabling the option "can interact" in the inspection windows of lamps, you can lock direct activation and deactivation, so that activation devices become a necessary condition. Other than that, you can define certain permission levels for lamps to be used and taken, and you can rename them as an option if you want to.

Arctek Lights[]

Creativerse thing arctek torch mining cell 2018-04-07 03-50-40-91.jpg

All Arctek Lamps emit the same amount of blueish-white light, but are not as bright as a Gas Lamp. They could be considered "tier 6", because rare Arcstones are a necessity to craft them. Other than that already crafted versions of all Arctek lightings can very rarely be found in randomly spawning Diamond Treasure Chests on Corrupted Blocks in the dark, but more often from Things - either as a loot or pet-harvest. All Arctek lights are wireable to activation devices like Switches, Number Pads, Sensors and/or Pressure Plates, and to operating gates like Logic Gates, Delay Gates, Flip-Flop Gates, Number Comparison Gates and Inverter Gates.

Machines[]

These craftable objects do not brighten a dark room or cave, but they are still visible in the dark. They cannot be considered lightings in Creativerse, and such do not appear in the "Lightings" section in the crafting menu either. They will not prevent Creatures nor Treasure Chests from randomly spawning nearby on natural blocks

  • LED - this is a bright lamp-like block and easily noticeable in the dark, with a large range of possible colors. Its crafting recipe is unlocked by crafting a Wiring Tool, a Switch and a Wood Burning Lamp. Still, LEDs do not illuminate their surrounding and such won't hinder Creatures nor random Treasure Chests from spawning next to them. Such, they can be found in the "Machines" section of the crafting menu, not in the "Lightings" section.
  • Galactic LED - this LED can only be crafted from a Store-exclusive recipe contained in the Galactic Super Bundle. If activated, it glows well visible in the darkness. Like all other LEDs the Industrial LED also does not illuminate their surrounding and such won't hinder Creatures nor random Treasure Chests from spawning next to it.
  • Industrial LED - this LED can only be crafted from a Store-exclusive recipe contained in the Industrial Super Bundle. It can be If activated, its flat surface shaped like a quadratic button glows well visible in the darkness. Like all other LEDs the Industrial LED also does not illuminate their surrounding and such won't hinder Creatures nor random Treasure Chests from spawning next to it.
  • White Beacon - this Beacon can be crafted and sends out a long beam of white light from its top side, but can be rotated into all directions, and even slightly illuminates a bit of its surrounding too. The beam of any Beacon is able to reach from the very bottom layer of the world to the very top high up in the sky and even optically extends above. When placed sideways it can help with constructing large buildings.
  • Blue Beacon - this Beacon is only craftable after finding and learning a rare Recipe that can be found in randomly spawning high tier Treasure Chests or can be obtained from Things, maybe also very rarely from Keepas of any kind. Like all Beacons it sends a long beam of (blue) colored light from its top side, but can be rotated into all directions, and even slightly illuminates a bit of its surrounding too. The color of the beams of Beacons can be "mixed" by placing them into a line so that their beams will overlap.
  • Red Beacon - this Beacon is only craftable after finding and learning a rare Recipe that can be found in randomly spawning high tier Treasure Chests or can be obtained from Things, maybe also very rarely from Keepas of any kind. Like all Beacons it sends a long beam of (red) colored light from its top side, but can be rotated into all directions, and even slightly illuminates a bit of its surrounding too. The color of the beams of Beacons can be "mixed" by placing them into a line so that their beams will overlap.
  • Yellow Beacon - this Beacon is only craftable after finding and learning a rare Recipe that can be found in randomly spawning high tier Treasure Chests or can be obtained from Things, maybe also very rarely from Keepas of any kind. Like all Beacons it sends a long beam of (yellow) colored light from its top side, but can be rotated into all directions, and even slightly illuminates a bit of its surrounding too. The color of the beams of Beacons can be "mixed" by placing them into a line so that their beams will overlap.
  • Healing Beacon - this Beacon also sends a long beam of (green) colored light from its top side, can be rotated into all directions and even slightly illuminates a bit of its surrounding too. However it has more benefits. It can heal player characters and all non-corrupted Creatures as long as they touch this Beacon. Moreover, the Healing Beacon can purify several Corrupted Blocks in its proximity and will turn Corrupted Water into healing Mineral Water. Mineral Water and the Healing Beacon itself will hurt and eventually kill Corrupted Creatures upon direct contact to top it off.
  • Teleporterits blue twisting patterns and particles are very well visible in the darkness. The faint glow of Teleporters might even be spotted on area maps in the night if you look closely.
  • Touchstone - its light blue pattern is well visible in the darkness.
  • Processor - its yellow green pattern is visible in the darkness, and this crafting station even illuminates a little bit of its surrounding.
  • Forge - the orange glow of its gated door/window is visible in the darkness, and this crafting station even illuminates a little bit of its surrounding.
  • Cooking Station - its red pattern is visible in the darkness, and this crafting station even illuminates a little bit of its surrounding.
  • Crafting Table - on older worlds you might find these old but still usable machines with very well visible light blue glowing patterns.
  • activated Fan - players can spot the blue swirl and blue glow of the patterns on any Fan (Ventilator) from afar, but only if its activated. If a Fan is deactivated, its blue patterns are only slightly visible in the dark.
  • activated Sensors - players can spot the blue glow of the patterns on a sensor from afar, but only if its activated. If a Sensor is deactivated, its blue patterns are only slightly visible in the dark.
  • activated Switches - players can spot the blue glow of the patterns on a switch from afar, but only if its activated. If a Switch is deactivated, its blue patterns are only slightly visible in the dark.
  • Industrial Switch - this switch can only be crafted from a Store-exclusive recipe contained in the Industrial Super Bundle. If activated, its green button glows visible in the darkness. If deactivated, the green button is only barely visible in the dark.
  • Industrial Lever - this lever can only be crafted from a Store-exclusive recipe contained in the Industrial Super Bundle. If activated, its green button glows visible in the darkness, but even if deactivated, its red button glows brightly.
  • activated Pressure Plates - players can spot the blue glow of an activated Pressure Plate from afar. Pressure Plates can be practically invisible if deactivated.
  • all operating gates (Number Comparison Gates, Delay Gates, Flip-Flop Gates, Inverter Gates, Logic Gates) - their violet glow is visible from quite a distance.
  • Mob Spawners, Loot Spawners and Block Phaser have violet glowing patterns on them that are well visible in the dark, even when these machines are deactivated
  • Snowball Turrets have light blue glowing patterns on their base after being placed. The crafting recipe for these rather rare machines can only be obtained during Christmas event-times by claiming the Snowball Turret Bundle after it has been unlocked by the efforts of the whole Creativerse community, or during other special occasions if Playful will decide so. During the Christmas event 2017 Elfi's Toy Drive, the Snowball Turret Bundle was unlocked on January 3rd 2018 and was available to be claimed by all Creativerse players until January 10th 2018. There is no tradeable Recipe for these items that could be shared with fellow Creativerse players.

Fireworks[]

Fireworks are single-use objects that can be placed, optionally wired to activation devices and then activated (not deactivated again though) in order to display fireworks high up in the sky above the top layer of the game world. Fireworks do not emit any light before being activated.

  • Blue Fireworks, Red Fireworks and Yellow Fireworks can only be crafted from Store-exclusive crafting recipes contained in the Fireworks Pack.
  • Haunted Fireworks are only available by trading them and/or their rare seasonal crafting Recipe from Pumpkirus (either The Great Pumpkiru or Pumpkiru Jr.) during the Halloween event "Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign".
  • New Years Fireworks and/or their crafting recipe can only be obtained during Christmas event-times by claiming the Snowball Turret Bundle after it has been unlocked by the efforts of the whole Creativerse community) or during other special occasions if Playful will decide so. In 2017, the Snowball Turret Bundle was unlocked on January 1st 2018 and was available to be claimed by all Creativerse players until January 10th 2018.

Flares[]

Flares are single-use throwables that will illuminate the area around their point of impact for a short while.

  • Flares can be randomly obtained from free Login Chests every 4 hours (up to 2 Login Chests every 8 hours). These bundles will randomly contain one of four possible item sets. Only the rarest Login Chests will contain 10 Flares at a time. Otherwise the crafting recipe for these throwable Explosives can be obtained and permanently be added to the crafting menu by registering your e-mail-address with Playful. They emit a pulsating light blue light at the point of their impact for ca. 90 seconds.
  • Scare Flares are only available by trading them and/or their rare seasonal crafting Recipe from Pumpkirus (either The Great Pumpkiru or Pumpkiru Jr.) during the Halloween event "Pumpkiru's Candy Campaign". Their point of impact illuminates the surrounding for ca. 90 seconds with a green pulsating light that regularly sends out a green spark with a thin green tail.

Crafted luminescent blocks[]

Some craftable blocks emit a glow, but will still not illuminate their surrounding and such will not prevent Creatures nor Treasure Chests from randomly spawning on natural blocks nearby

Natural luminescent blocks[]

Items on display[]

Creativerse arcstone in the dark 2018-04-13 19-03-32-21.jpg
Creativerse placemat items in the dark 2018-04-13 21-31-10-74.jpg

Many items emit a significant glow that can only really be admired if these items are put on display, like on Placemats, Galactic Grav-Chambers, Stone Wall Shelves or Hidden Temple Altars, in Flower Pots, Wood Planters, Snow Buried Containers or Frozen Containers and the like.

This holds true for most Explosives, many Weapons like Swords (also displayable on Weapon Racks and in the hands of Blocky the Snowman), but also Arcstones, Haunted Idols and any other object and block that usually also glows after being placed.

However, machines like LEDs, Switches and the like will appear deactivated on display and such might not glow at all, and most objects with open flames like Campfires and Fire Pits might be doused on display containers. In any case, even the brightest lamps that are put on display will not illuminate their surrounding and also appear in a reduced size, depending on the display container and chosen arrangement.

Luminescent Creatures[]

Most Creatures such as Trogs, Keepas, Silver Keepas, Golden Keepas, Warmworms, Hot Feet, Night Pigsies, Night Hoglets, Night Leafies, Night Twiggies, Night Rocksters, Night Chizzards, common Mirus, Arctic Mirus, all Corrupted Creatures including Things, Corrupted Chizzards, Corrupted Leafies, Corrupted Pigsies, Corrupted Rocksters and Corrupted Mirus are more noticeable at night or in dark Caves because of glowing parts of their skins and/or their glowing eyes. Shrewdshrews are especially visible because of the burning tips of their tails.

Treasure Chests[]

All randomly spawning Treasure Chests emit a visible glow of different colors from their opened orifices. They do not illuminate their surrounding though.

Wiring[]

All Lamps, Beacons, Fire Pits, Campfires, Fireplaces and Arctek Torches can be wired using the Wiring Tool to activation devices and operating gates in order to be activated/deactivated from a distance, in a sequence, for a specific length of time, etc.

Lamps can be switched on or off by activating them. Use your right mouse button or press "f" (as the default key) while looking at a lamp that has been placed into the world to turn it off or on. They cannot be activated/deactivated directly though if their option "can interact" is disabled in their inspection window. You can access this option by equipping an Wiring Tool, pointing at the lamp and typing "n" as the default key.

How to wire lamps[]

Wiring Input Icon.png
All lamps can be wired to activation devices like Switches, Sensors, Number Pads or Pressure Plates etc., optionally with operating gates in between, like Number Comparison Gates, Delay Gates, Flip-Flop Gates, Inverter Gates, Logic Gates, etc. Lamps can only serve as receivers and can be switched on or off by using the activation device/s.

Creativerse lamp settings 2017-09-15 01-33-34-71.jpg
Creativerse wiring lamp hotspot 2018-04-13 21-45-40-56.jpg

To wire lamps, equip an Wiring Tool and point your cursor at a lamp that you have placed into the world. The "Receive" Hotspot will become visible then and you will be able to connect it to the "Send" Hotspot of activation devices and/or of operating gates.

Type "n" (as the default key) to inspect the wiring window of the lamp if you wish to type a code word into the receiving array that you will then also use in the sending array of the activation device/s and/or operating gate/s.

How to change the settings of lamps[]

Creativerse wiring fun001.jpg
Creativerse permission setting claim builders 2017-11-18 15-50-43-62.jpg

The interactivity of lamps can be toggled as well. Wireable objects like lamps can be activated/deactivated by players of all permission ranks, even by visitors, unless their interactivity is disabled (locked) for all players (even owners) with a Wiring Tool.

For this purpose you can lock your lamps by disabling the option "can interact". You can access this option when looking at the lamp and typing "n" (as the default key) with an Wiring Tool equipped.

Now other players cannot switch on or off your lamps, but only if their permission rank is lower than the minimum permission level of the according lamp. If players are either builders or even admins on the game world (if the lamp is not placed on any claimed land) or on the according player claim, then these players might not only activate/deactivate your lamps, but even pick them up and take them away though.

The padlock symbol lets you define the minimum permission rank for your lamp that players will need to match or outrank in order to be able to see and change the settings of the lamp with their own Wiring Tool. For this, use your Wiring Tool and "n" to open the wiring window of the lamp and look for the padlock symbol in the top right corner of the settings window.

Click on it to check the permission setting that is currently selected. The permission level of these lightings will be set to "world builders" by default when placing the lamps, and on player claims it will automatically be set to "claim builders" when being placed.

When raising the permission level of a lamp with the padlock symbol, only its owner and players with a matching or even higher permission rank than the permission level of the lamp can then use their Wiring Tools to change the settings (including "can interact") of the lamp, so that they can switch the lamp on/off directly, or even pick it up and take it.

Renaming a lamp[]

Using this same settings window by typing "n" (as the default key) with an Wiring Tool equipped while looking at the lamp, you can also rename your lamp by typing another description into the labelling array (up to 30 characters).

Luminosity Table for all craftable light sources[]

The craftable lights & lamps have a maximum range at which they can illuminate and prevent creature spawning. The table below shows the range at which the lights no longer cast any light whatsoever, and the color of the light generated. White lights are bright and pure white light, similar to what you'd expect out of a 5000k LED bulb in real life, and the Warm White is more like a 3000K LED bulb. The other colors you really generally need to see in order to appreciate - of particular note, all of the Arctec lights and torches cast the exact same amount and color of light regardless of which one you use.

These radiance ranges were measured on a flat plane with the light mounted directly on the ground, which means that if the light is mounted on the ceiling or wall, you will get a sphere of light, and so maximum range would be directly below or to the sides - the light on an angle fades naturally but falls short of the maximum listed range.
