More About Dynamic Light In Minecraft

This modification makes ‘shining’ items (default: Torch, Glowstone, Glowdust, Lit Pumpkin, Redstone, Lava Bucket, powered Minecart) illuminate everything around them if;


1) the player has them equipped (in hand/armor)
2) they are dropped on the ground
3) another player has them equipped in Multiplayer

On top of that, burning Entities shine light, and Creepers about to explode light up!
You may add any Item ID you wish as shiny item, via the settings file. Also supports armor items!
Toggle button ingame:

The key is “L”. You can turn all dynamic Lights on/off with it. The button can be rebound using the ingame options.

There is no limit to the number of lights you can create, note however they are fairly FPS-costly. You can disable modules to obtain better FPS!

I recommend using Optifine for replacing Notch’s funky render code with slightly less funky rendering code.

The mod works in Multiplayer, yet is clientside, it cannot lag servers. Note however ‘dropped’ light sources will not necessarily prevent Mobs from Spawning, and neither will your handheld light.

Note: DO NOT INSTALL THE COREMOD ON SERVERS! It will crash on load.
