FS#22316 - Oil Lamp Post - Not casting light when fast-travelling to a settlement

This might be the same issue that is hounding the Turret Spotlights.

The issue is that the Oil Lamp Posts (found under DECORATIONS > MISC) stop casting light if the player fast-travels to a settlement.

The only solution that makes them light up the environment properly after fast-travel is to either pick them up manually one by one or reload the game. There is no permanent way to fix this by hand as it happens often, same way it happens to spotlight turrets.

The spotlights and turrets issue is different (spotlights and turrets are actors!), and so is the fix for that issue (by a modification to WorkshopObjectScript; misc objects such as the lamp posts are not running that script).

Sclerocephalus commented on April 19 2017 12:42 AM

This object does not run any scripts, not even a WorkshopObjectScript (not a surprise actually, since an oil lamp doesn't need any power). Which means that this is an engine issue.

Nonetheless, one could still try to fix this by adding a small script that sets the destroyed flag on load and then clears it again. This would probably force the engine to have a look at it and to react.
