Sketchy Power Lamps

This mod adds two researchable new lamps to the game. These lamps consume more electricity and cost more resources, but illuminate larger areas than the basic lamp.

Small Lamp (unmodded)- 1 circuit, 1 iron plate, 3 iron rods, 5KW
Medium Power Lamp - 5 small lamps, 1 circuit, 15KW
High Power Lamp - 3 medium lamps, 3 circuits, 50KW

This is my first mod! There are several other options for lighting mods, but I didn't want to totally destroy the problem (with something like Afraid of the Dark) and I wanted something that fit in the game's aesthetic, but still looked slightly different. These lamps also have a larger glow radius when sent a color signal.

Known issue: The game does not render lights that are a certain distance away from the player's viewpoint. This means that high power lamps won't light an area if they aren't visible, resulting in them "popping" in. Unfortunately, I believe this is a vanilla limitation.
