This adds the same emissive lighting from optifine but in vanilla as a data-pack!

with an easy installation and first time setup a /reload shall do the trick... I'm also expecting some bugs (especially on multiplayer) so please leave any bugs down in the comments!

Read me: Light will not emit from the player holding items if all block surrounding & in the player prevent him the blocks from being placed... they can only be placed in open air or water so for example if you are surrounded in tall grass and have a block above your head light blocks will not placed to avoid world damage...

Although you cannot place light blocks due to the data-pack's nature if you have existing light blocks in your world they should not be override and should safely stay... if this does not happen... please post a bug report in my discord!


Update Plans if the data-pack is popular:

- add emissive lights for dropped items

- armourstand emmisives???


Uninstallation

/function light:uninstall

find your world's data-packs folder and drop the .zip file into that folder... run /reload and if installed properly it'll automatically work!

This is absolutely amazing thank you so much for making this. I did notice a bug that when your holding something in your off hand and you try to place a torch it deletes the torch, but only when placing on the ground (you can still place them on the sides of blocks) this might be a bug just for me tho, im playing on 21w14a, and again, thank you so much for making this datapack its really awesome
