    I'm unable to repro this.  Are you able to reproduce this on a new save game?

    Hi chiko,

    So I was able to repro on a new save, but found that it's a bit tricky to repro. It feels like it really depends on the map/location too, as I was not able to repro on Navezgane but was able to repro again on a new save of Pregen6k


    One thing I did notice was that it requires at least 1 relog for the issue to happen (so set up the lights, teleport away and back, see the lights are still normal, then relog and teleport away and back again).


    If that still doesn't work, I've tried best I can to make as specific of a repro as I could of exactly where I placed the lights and where I teleported

    1. Create new pregen6k map
    2. enable DM and CM
    3. In the console, type "tp -70 35 1053"
    4. There should be a light pole nearby, place the battery bank in front of it and power with car battery and turn it on
    5. Place down 9 Industrial Light bulbs, 1 in front and 4 on left/right of the bank
    6. Wire up the bulbs
    7. In the console, type "tp -2689 148 -2679"
    8. Wait a bit (for trees and stuff to start appearing)
    9. In the console, type "tp -70 35 1053"
    10. Lights should still look normal
    11. Log out and back in
    12. enable DM and CM
    13. In the console, type "tp -2689 148 -2679"
    14. Wait a bit (for trees and stuff to start appearing)
    15. In the console, type "tp -70 35 1053"

    Some of the lights should start being different colors now

    Here is video from start to finish of my 2nd attempt with new map:
