With this mod, Paper Moon Ceiling Light can't be interacted with or moved in buy/build mode by clicking its glow, as if it didn't exist.

None that I know of. The mod will conflict only with default replacement meshes of Paper Moon Ceiling Light.

I really never notice and I do use the Paper Moon lamp. I still don't understand what the problem was before your fix Please explain a bit more.

@Simonut It's annoying when you try to click a chair or a plate on a table, but you click the glow instead because the glow is treated as a material part of the lamp. If you don't use custom cameras that turn off or reduce fading, you probably can't notice that.

Oh man, I didn't even realize the problems I sometimes had with clicking stuff in rooms was this lamp before I read this. Thank you for the fix!

Well I did realize very much this lamp had a problem, to the point of avoiding using it because it was annoying how I always had to move the camera to be able to click on anything around this annoying yet pretty lamp.

Very useful mod, I can use this ceiling lamp again, thank you !
