Usage

Press R to manually toggle on and off.

Once placed, Beacons will immediately light up the surrounding area. Roughly 5 block lengths in each directions. However unlike the other light blocks beacons emit a powerfully bright light plum. This light plum is so bright that it can obscure sight of any block within 2-3 meters of the Beacon. This plum is the Beacons primary usage as it can be seen nearly the max draw distance the game allows. It makes for great decoration on any entity. Lastly by connecting a Beacon to any Weapon Systems it will change the color of the weapons projectile to white (This is only advised in the case of Damage Beam and Damage Pulse systems as their default color is not white).

Like other light blocks, Beacons can be toggled on or off using Logic Signals.

Selecting the symbol will then bring up a radial menu of the block with every available shape. Players can customize which shapes they have quick access too by pressing Right Click on the desired shape in the radial menu.
