Brighter Base Lights
Version 1.3
Author JJhookah    

Brighter Base Lights is a mod request / suggestion by jarooraj and Baleur that increases the light output of the three base buildable standing lights.
Three optional versions available that will replace one of the standing lights with a buildable floodlight from trading posts, these are the same floodlights from my "Floodlights" mod" and can be placed anywhere a normal standing light can. 

Versions : Use only one version at a time !

Brighter Base lights :
increased lighting on the three vanilla buildable standing lights. {See first picture above}   

Brighter Base lights 1 : Replaces the four rectangle style standing light with a floodlight. {See second picture above}

Brighter Base lights 2 : Replaces the twin round style standing light with a floodlight. {See third picture above}              

Brighter Base lights 3 : Replaces the  360 degree surround style standing light with a floodlight. {See fourth picture above} 

All versions have increased lighting.
Version relative picture included in zip.
Floodlights will revert to the vanilla standing light they replaced upon removal of the mod.

Extract chosen Brighter.Base.Lights.pak from zip to No Man's Sky\GAMEDATA\PCBANKS\MODS folder.

Create Mods folder if you don't already have one.
Remove or rename DISABLEMODS.TXT file from PCBANKS folder.

Delete chosen Brighter.Base.Lights.pak from No Man's Sky\GAMEDATA\PCBANKS\MODS folder.

Made with TubOcrisco's excellent NMS MODDING STATION.
Special thanks to monkeyman192 for updating compilers.
Thanks to jarooraj and Baleur for the idea of this mod.
Recommend using "Darker Nights for NEXT" and "No Blinding Lights for NEXT" both by Lo2k with this mod.
All screenshots taken using these two mods.

Credits : Would also like to credit sixsocket with the original idea of increasing intensity of base lights, a fact I was unaware of at the time of making this mod.
Please see his updated original "Directional Standing Lights" mod at
And "Post Lights for Next" available here on Nexus,

Unfortunately not compatible with other mods that use the same file.
Edit: V 1.2 no longer uses BASEBUILDINGTABLE.MBIN for compatibility with other mods.

Can be used both with and without my "Floodlights" mod.

All versions 1.77 compatible.

Reduced intensity of standing lights to be more realistic and sensible.
Greatly improved light fall off from floodlights for more realistic and subtle lighting.
All versions updated to 1.1
See new pics.

V 1.2
Now fully compatible with any mods that use BASEBUILDINGTABLE.MBIN
All versions updated to 1.2




V 1.3  { Optional floodlight versions only }
Fixed small cosmetic issue of floodlight housing being illuminated.

Please forgive my pathetic base.
