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.



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

@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.
