EPs Required: None – base game compatible
I know there are invisible recolours of the base game burglar alarm, but for my medieval/fantasy Westeros ‘hood, I wanted an alarm that was completely invisible – no flashing lights, no shadow, nothing. I couldn’t find any on the sites I usually prowl (even though it’s quite possible it’s been done before – I’d be surprised if it hasn’t), so I decided to make one myself.
This is a stand-alone object, not a recol of the original burglar alarm. It functions exactly like the original, though, only it’s invisible – and I do mean invisible. As shown above, you see the footprint when you place/grab it, but that’s all. Other than that, there’s nothing to indicate where the burglar alarm is until it goes off – then you’ll see the tell-tale sound waves – so be sure to note where you put it.
Apparently, allowing object intersection only applies to objects on the ground, not on walls, so you still have to use the “moveobjects on” cheat if you want to place the burglar alarm on a part of the wall that’s already occupied. But hey, at least you won’t have to put extra effort into hiding it behind something!
