The Omnidirectional Lamppost functions as a source of light that that can feed off an existing electrical power grid. Unlike the  Lamppost, the Omnidirectional Lamppost emits light in all directions.

The lamppost can be placed underwater, but cannot be turned on if the base is submerged.


The Omnidirectional Lamppost does not require a foundation for placement, and as such does not interfere with the spawning of natural resources. It does not snap to other structures.

  • The following aggressive creatures can not damage the Omnidirectional Lamppost:

Painting and Color Regions

While Lamppost has no paint-able regions, you can change the colour light emitted with using a paintbursh pre-loaded with a dye colour since v250. White colored dinos will reflect and glow very brightly in the lamp light color when this is done.
