Required Resource Pack

Simulates a flashlight in minecraft; no mods required!

To install: place the .zip in your datapacks folder of your save
Use the resource pack if you don't want the flashlight to look like a fishing rod (that's all it does).

To obtain you have 2 options:
- kill elder guardian
- use /function edta_flashlight:give_flashlight

WARNING
Temporally replaces the block you look at by a sea_lantern (and hides this). In my testing the original block always came back, but I do consider it a risky operation, so prefer to warn you.

KNOWN ISSUES
- certain things will pop off when shining the light on them, like grass and flowers because it can not survive on a sea lantern
- some blocks may seem to disappear. They are there, but invisible due to a minecraft glitch. You can fix them with the flashlight, or by placing a block in them or by restarting (or probably by chunk relaoding, but forgot to test that).



Other version that does not have these issues, but comes with other issues:

http://www.mediafire.com/file/weiti75ut2eqgaw/edta_flashlight_2_datapack_and_resourcepack.zip/file

None of the issues of the other version are still present.

Issues with this version:
- All soul torches in your world are invisible
- Smoke particles from torches and fires is invisible (campfires are fine)

As such I would suggest to use this version only in a controlled environment.

This is not so much an update as an alternative version that tackles issues with the original one and introduces new issues

Download it here:

None of the issues of the other version are still present.

Issues with this version:
- You can and will get a lot of free soul torches when in survival mode. -> fixed in latest version by deleting them from inventory
- All soul torches in your world are invisible
- Smoke particles from torches and fires is invisible (campfires are fine)

As such I would suggest to use this new version only in a controlled environment.

Hey, this is a good model! Can I send it to my friends for us to use in a video? But... is there a way to make it into a torch?

I just fixed the issue of getting free soul torches: whenever you pick one up, all will be deleted from your inventory.

You are a bloody legend, this is awesome. If I am to use this in a Minecraft RP video or something, would we need to credit still?
