Searchlights are stationary installations for shining light outside of the submarine.

Function

Searchlight cast light in a long narrow cone towards where it is aimed, useful for seeing potential targets or generally for observing the submarine's surroundings.

A Searchlight is operated by Interacting (Default: Left Mouse) with a connected Periscope, and can be exited by Deselecting (Default: Right Mouse) it.

If the Searchlight is wired to be toggle-able, the user can also toggle its light on and off by Interacting (Default: Left Mouse) while operating the Searchlight.

Usage

A Periscope's position_out pin must be wired to the Searchlight's position_in pin to be able to operate it.

The Searchlight's light can be made toggle-able by:

  • Connecting a Periscope's trigger_out to the Searchlight's toggle_state pin to allow toggling while operating the Periscope.
  • Connecting a Lever to the Searchlight's set_light pin to allow toggling while not operating the Periscope.
