Hennimore Posted April 16, 2018 Share Posted April 16, 2018 Hello, I am looking to create an item that allows me to see whether an object is powered or not. I want to create a sort of control panel that will allow me to see if a certain generator has run out and needs refuelling without going all the way across my building. My initial idea was to use a standard ceiling light as a template for this, but I was unable to find out how I modify the intensity of the lights and the colour (color for you Americans out there) and I really don't want a super bright white light if I'm honest because I don't want to light up the room, I just want a little LED type light so I can quickly and easily see if there's power. Now, the power switch seems really appropriate for this use since it already has a red/green LED, but I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to modify the switch so that I can remove the switch part and set the LED to be green by default (red is also fine but I would prefer green if I'm honest). So my questions are: 1)Is it possible to copy the switch block as a new object and remove the switch function and set the LED to be green by default when it has power? 2) If the answer to question 1 is "yes", how do I do it? 3) If the answer to question 1 is "no" then is there ANY way (no matter how lazy or shoddy) to achieve what I want to do. The lazier the better since I'm not really up to the task of spending ages modifying an item to have it not work or it being needed to be re-done for A17. Thanks in advance guys.
