Toasters should emit more light

There's not much to say about this suggestion. Toasters are literally fire, yet Ice emits more light than Toasters do. Pretty nonsensical if you ask me, Toasters should act not only as a weapon but also as a light source for dark areas. At the moment, they emit little to no light and only near the player. Without further ado, what I'm suggesting is light for each Toaster projectile, for obvious reasons.

People can always just turn ambient lightning off when it's too dark.

True, but that's no fun. I was playing the fourth level in Holiday Hare '17 and there's that very very dark section of the level. I was really disappointed to find out that Toasters are actually one of the worst weapons for illumination.

Yeah, turning off ambient lighting is not an option. I hate peasant graphics and 30 Fps. So I would prefer better illumination than to completely turn off ambient lights.

I like this idea, though I wonder whether it can be made to look pretty with JJ2's lighting engine. But the principle makes a lot of sense.
