Hello again fellow DDA players, I tried looking around the forum and could not find a topic on this, also could not find any horticulture bulbs in game, I am a huge fan of making enormous walled in farms.
So, can you grow crops indoors with any lighting? can you grow crops indoors with no lighting?
I also recommend implementing (Different?) Horticulture bulbs
As anyone whos grown indoors is familiar with, you need a certain amount of lumens to properly light a room, and your also going to need proper wattage for the most efficient plant growth.
Now we don’t have to go crazy with lumens, we can just use wattage for our est. coverage. but the wattage itself can also be used to accelerate plant growth while also chewing up more energy
Most common indoor lighting watts 250 400 600 1000
(Complex) If we want to make it hardcore real life, Add different spectrums to the bulbs, for instance, blue spectrum would help cannabis plants grow quickly in early life
There has been a similar thread on building hydroponics trays, but not exactly similar.
On the subject of this thread, I’d defintely like to see something like this ingame. Maybe paired with functional pickaxes and I can finally build my one person mountainhome (and have an actual use for the troglobite trait) accompanied with the shrine to Armok.
[quote=“Keyreper, post:5, topic:6022”]just remember to get a rope to dig down a level, build halls that even Armok would admire! fill it with blood and other stuff, maybe some zombears… who knows :P…
i need to change my sig now, don’t I?[/quote]
Lateral-dig pickaxes PR’d on 24 Dec; Kevin merged 'em the next day. Vertical digging was a major project back in March and required Kevin’s coordinate-understanding to get the maps to save properly. (You’ll need a J-Hammer & gasoline, rather than a pickaxe, to go below z-1.)
Z-level digging is a significant undertaking though, so check the construction menu and Plan.
