Animal Crossing Lighting – How to change the lighting in Happy Home Paradise DLC

Image: Nintendo’s Life

Everyone has opinions about the Big Light. You know what the Big Light is, even if you don’t – it’s the main ceiling light in a room, and people either love it (it’s bright!) Or hate it (it’s strong. !).

For those who can’t stand the Big Light, there is a solution: mood lighting. This is achievable in real life with lamps, colorful bulbs, and dimmers – and it’s also achievable in Animal Crossing: New Horizons Happy Home Paradise, the new DLC.

You can already change the light level of your rooms individually, but with just three options (on, dim, off) it’s not particularly customizable. In New Leaf, you could change colors and levels, but the colors depended on the color of the lamp.

With Happy Home Paradise and the new 2.0 update, that has changed again: you can now choose the brightness and color on a slider.

In the menu, go to the tab called “Lighting” and make sure the cursor is on the colored bit. You can then move left or right to select a color, which will automatically display in your room.

The slider at the bottom changes from off to on, with varying degrees of brightness in between. You can move the slider from left to right to select your ideal brightness.

How does this affect the lamps in the room?

The lamps can be turned on or off manually to add to the effect.

Why would I want my room to be a weird color?

Some applications are relatively obvious: a warm, dark orange makes a room much cozier, for example. But a green light would work in a spooky lab, a red light could make a large dark room, and a purple light would make it look like a nightclub. really costs.
