This article is about the Floodlight. You may be looking for the Spotlight.

The Floodlight is an appliance that emits light in one direction. It can be crafted on the seabed or near Seabases by using the Habitat Builder.

Like the Spotlight, the Floodlight is Seabase-powered. It will not provide lighting if the Seabase it is connected to does not have power.

When placing with the Habitat Builder, the Floodlight will be shown in three different colors. Red means it can't be built in the current location. Yellow means it can be built, but it won't be powered. Green means it is both buildable and powered in the current location.

Each Floodlight consumes three points energy every three seconds, or 60 power per minute.


The blueprint for this item is unlocked by scanning Floodlights at the Architect Phase Gate Facility, Koppa Mining Site, or Outpost Zero. It is crafted with the Habitat Builder.
