But I do agree bigger lights handle the mod better
Only in absolute terms, not relative.

If you build a light the size of an elephant, it might have 1000x the volume & power but only 100x the surface area. Surface area is what gets rid of heat, so in relative terms that elephant-sized light is ~10x worse at shedding heat. :huh: Btw that's the reason elephants have such big ears (to help get rid of heat). And African elephants more so, since they usually have more heat to shed than their Indian cousins. :laughing:
