Confusion about luminosity and mob spawning.

Recommended Posts

Remember to turn on the illuminators. They're off by default, you can switch their mode by right-clicking them with a valid buildcraft wrench. I prefer the 'always-on' mode for lighting my base, which you get by wrenching an illuminator 5 times.

Also, lights can only go so far. If your ceiling is too high, the light won't actually get to the ground. Press F7 to see the areas mobs can spawn.

It also only takes one slightly darker corner for a mob to be able to spawn. Nice part is, they can only spawn if the dark spot is below them, on the floor. It does not matter how dark the ceiling may be.

Ceiling lighting only matters for aesthetic reasons. As in, it looks nicer.
