The lighting system is a chunk-based shadow and light system first introduced on floor 2 in Baldi's Basics Plus.


The lighting system as seen from the early access trailer.

The main purpose of the lighting system is to give the Super Schoolhouse shading by creating shadows, and dark rooms or hallways. It uses chunks as the main method of illuminating, light sources include ceiling tile lights and lamps. The further a chunk is from a light source, the darker the chunk is.

One of the main uses for the lighting system is the lights-out event or the light flickering effect by The Test, in which the lighting ambience is turned down and the overall chunk brightness from the light system is globally lowered.



  • Prior to V0.1.5, starting on floor 2, some items in any location appeared to be darker for no reason by this system.
