    It would be great if we could use some of our house space to grow plants at normal sun rate. I want a nice house but also want some planting spots. So if we could craft some grow lights, maybe out of obsidian chips or some other gem chip. That light when placed in a room would make the rooms grow rate go to the outside rate of 1.

    Things to grow inside and reasons for them...
    Crops or fishing insects that would do better if grown or harvested from inside plants with grow lights? Silk Worms for tailoring, Night Crawlers for fishing, Glowing Mushrooms for growing glowing inside home decor that would act as those grow lights?
    We need to fit such a thing into a circle of expendable enhancements or enchantments to our SOTA life which may not require allot of special programming time. We need it to be special, or we're just placing more crap in the world which could have better served to more deepen our gaming experience.

    What more could we make of this, for less?
    We need something that takes one hell of allot of PASSION! :confused:

    for a perk that enhances our gaming for it to be or not to be... ;)

    I do think that is the question :D

    Would be nice if there were different kinds of fungi you could grow, some could be bioluminescent and give an effect of sunlight when concentrated. This would create a cost of lighting up a dungeon or house with balancing how many mushrooms you grow.

    Ideally if the mushrooms had an associated cooking recipe and/or potion use then they wouldn't be a complete waste.

    I agree they could do a lot more if there was the option. I just wanted to start simple and get the ability to craft grow lights. They can then add cool drop changes for inside after that.

    I think one of the problems with attaching something better to the idea, is that it then effects all housing :( "but I'm not a programmer, so I really don't know what I'm talking about" o_O

    There was once a time when Lord British had spoken of such crops, but that was very early on when we had only one city built, "Owl's Head". LB had envisioned a plant substance grown in basements which was illegal and had perils when attempting to deliver them to market, along with having to set up the deal (sale) through some underworld character living in town. That's all I can remember from our old programming history of such a thing, yet I don't think the crop he was thinking of even needed a grow-light, because it preferred the dark. I'm wondering if there could be plants that would prefer living indoors which wouldn't have a necessity for any additional special lighting.

    we only have one use for quartz crystals, and it's not a crafting one. grow lights out of quartz crystals that burn out somewhat regularly like torches would give those another use, that's fitting with the scene they're found, too. i just don't think they're set up to track durability changes to deco, hence all the mannequins holding torches.

    I’ve dropped the idea of something like that on Twitch streams, something akin to Silver Serpent Venom from U7 - perhaps some kind of addiction/tolerance/withdrawal effects for “special” potions
