An automated soil watering solution.

Common
Value 200

Sprinkler is a farming object made using an Agricultural Station. It must be placed on a patch of ground free of any obstructions.

When placed it spreads water over an area of 15 blocks in both directions, (covering a total of 32 blocks, 30 not counting the sprinkler itself), which will prepare soil for crops to grow. It needs at least eight blocks upward clearance (seven not counting the sprinkler itself) in order to reach all its covered blocks. The sprinkler can however, be elevated to a higher level than the soil it is watering for an increased range. It functions as an automated version of the Watering Can.

When placed the sprinkler will perpetually spread water in the area around it. It can also be wired to switches allowing players to toggle it on and off.

Note that the player, NPCs, creatures, and foreground blocks will impede the droplets thrown by the sprinkler, so for highest efficiency you shouldn't have wandering farm animals on the same level as the sprinklers.

Another thing to note is that sprinklers will not function correctly when on planets with lower gravity (Moons and Asteroid Fields). The water will spit out, but will continue to flow in the the direction when it was dispensed, until it hits a Player, NPC, or block.
