Starbound: Tip (Lighting caves, houses, etc. without using torches)
If you don’t have torches or just want to save them, then you can illuminate dark places without using torches by making a hole in the background (dark blocks that do not prevent you from passing), while holding the right mouse button while selecting the Matter Manipulator or pickaxe. The place will be lit, but it only works during the day. This works with all blocks, including ores. You can put blocks in the same way..
