First, place a zone wherever you want it to be.
(You should add walls on each side of the zone.)

Now, place the two medieval streetlamps, one off and one on.
Configure the settings for the medieval streetlamp that is on to make it not seeable on game start.


Now, wire the zone to the medieval streetlamp that is off(Player enters zone, hide prop.)

And then, wire the zone to the medieval streetlamp that is on(Player enters zone, show prop)

Now, put a zone on the other side of the streetlamps.

(Don’t mind the zone that you can see a little bit.)
Now, wire the zone to the streetlamps.


Oh yeah, and also, set the visibility scope to player so it won’t bug when there is more than one person.
Stack them on top of each other.

This is a cool guide! It’s like those creepy automatic motion lights that turn on whenever someone steps inside somewhere, like at school. Nice job!

I don’t know why I didn’t notice this sooner!

What I mean is: I don't use props enough.

This is a great guide, I would never had thought of this, ever.

This reminds me of how the lights in my school turn off if nobody is moving

I mean that works, but I was thinking for like a part 2, you could make it so there’s a barrier with no collision, and when you enter, it dissapears, being replaced with a black barrier with a lighter alpha. (Also with no collision.)

No offense, but you seem to always controverse simple ideas.
Just let people make the guides they want. Not everyone thinks on the same level.

Just sayin’…

That’s alright. Just—don’t say stuff like this:

But yeah :face_exhaling: don’t do that…

Are you saying I’m being mean? I was just trying to lighten things up a bit.
You were almost like, this guide is not good enough, so you should add this… but no, I’m not going to argue. I’m just saying to not----down things sometimes…

Back on topic, though.
