A01 - Lightbox & Sensor

Location: 1742,25,814

A mesecons_wire connects a mesecons_detector with a lightbox (from xdecor).
If a player comes within range 6 of the sensor, it turns from red to green, and powers the wire.
When powered, the wire turns into a lighter shade of yellow,
and attached devices (such as the lightbox) turn on.
