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 full game early access trailer.

The main purpose of the lighting system is to give Super Schoolhouse shading such as shadows, and dark rooms/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-Off event or the blind effect by The Test character, in which the lighting ambience is turned down and the overall chunk brightness from the light system is globally lowered.
