LUX
Lux is a simple mod that adds new ways of lighting your Minecraft world.
I think torches are too boring

Blocks!
undefined
Light Bulb
Pretty simple. A small block that emits a decent amount of light when powered by redstone.


undefined


Campfire
A campfire that never burns out. An interface similar to a furnace's will pop up if you right click it, allowing you to cook food only. It will take only sticks as fuel, requiring two sticks to cook one item. No sticks are required to keep the actual block's fire burning.


undefined
Candle
A small candle made out of wax that, like the campfire, never burns out. Its light level is very low.

undefinedundefined
Lantern
It's a lantern. You can also add a candle to it. (recipe is lantern + candle)

undefined
Glowstone Lamps
Pretty nice looking blocks that can be used in a lot of situations. Maybe can be used as street lamps or something.

undefined
Lava Lamp
Not really a lava lamp, but at least it has actual lava.





Ceiling Lamps
Finally another use for light bulbs. Powered by redstone. Can only be placed on the bottom side of solid blocks.

Paper Lantern
A paper lantern that can only be placed on the bottom of blocks.

Light Box
Places invisible light blocks every 5 blocks in a 20 block radius. This lights a large area and eliminates the need to place torches everywhere. It will scan the entire area on the blocks y level for available spaces to place a light block. If one spot on the grid already has a solid block, it will check upwards for 10 blocks, then it will check downwards for 10 block until it finds a spot. If it cannot find a spot after all these checks, it will not place anything. The block stores all coordinates of invisible light blocks placed by the light box. It will remove all invisible light blocks when broken.

Invisible Light Block
This can only be placed by a light box or magic light stick. It has the same light level as glowstone. Can be broken without a tool. Holding either a light box or magic light stick will show all invisible light blocks as barrier particles.
Items!
undefined
Wax
Made by smelting coal. Used to make awesome candles.



Kerosene
Obtained from combining coal with a bottle of water. Used to craft lanterns.


Magic Light Stick
Places an invisible light block on right click. 100 uses.

Will there be a 1.11.2 update soon

Hello.


I'm experiencing crashes with the campfire.
I have a 1.11.2 server and I'm aware the mod is guaranteed to work properly only on 1.11.

Would it be possible to help me there and/or upgrade the mod to be compatible with 1.11.2 ?
Unless I'm mistaken, the source code isn't available so I can't investigate the matter myself.

Thanks in advance for your answers !

I love this mod so much, it just really helps add that home well lived in look, like a little more care and thought went into making the home. Adds so much charm to places.

Keep up the great work!
for me invisible light blocks are showing as a non textured entity (red circle with a line through it) is there a fix for that?

Do you mind making a download without adfoc(dot)us? I don't want a virus, thanks.

Adfocus does not give viruses, and neither should my mod. How did you install Minecraft Forge without bypassing the ad thing, because all forge links use it.

There is a way to download it directly. If you hover over the little "i" next to the download there is a link that says "Direct Download."

Oops, I checked the ceiling lamp and I think I broke the code, sorry. I'll fix it and add the fence part in the next update

I have tried powered it with redstone, lever, button at every combination of side block, even placed the ceiling lamp right below redstone block but the lamp won't on. Any video tutorial for this ceiling lamp, maybe?

Beautiful mod, would greatly appreciate if you could port to 1.10

finally ported!
Amazing. But what would be awesome if, somehow, bows drawn within... say... a one block radius of braziers would have their arrows lit, engulfing any target it hits with fire; furthermore, the brazier could have, like, a limited number of uses with the previous method in mind before the fire burns out... like... three. Then, you would have to re-light it with flint and steel.

Just some wishful thinking.
Any plans on updating this Mod to 1.9.4 and also, what are the rules to use this on ModPacks.

Thanks a lot.

It depends on the majority of other mods. If they're mostly updated to 1.9.4, then I'll update it, too. I really only keep one version of the mod updated. As for modpacks, as long as credit is given and a link to here or my minecraft forums page,is provided then feel free to add this to your modpack :)
Thanks a lot. Well I can tell you most mods are updating to 1.9.4 including some mods like EnderIO they just skipped 1.9 and went to 1.9.4
PS: Can you name your mod on the mcmod.info so it's not called "Example Mod" thanks ;)

Yeah I guess I should. I also keep forgetting to actually make a real mcmod.info, so it's like that for all my mods lol

Looks good but I think you should tweak the campfire recipe. It doesn't make much sense to have 3 gravel(cobblestone?) to make a fire. I think it should be 1 and a bunch of sticks with a torch.

Also, the candle is very innefficient. A torch would be cheaper and produce more light. I think you should change the iron to a block of cobblestone. It could be an eargly game light. In early game, players don't usually have surplus Iron to use on a crappy light.

The lantern could also use tweaking. That's a lot of iron to use on a torch. I don't know if it has any extra abbilites, but if it is the same as a basic torch, why would you waste iron on it? I think you should increase the range and make it 1 iron.

The two lamps are neat, but again, not efficient at all. If it has the same light level as glowstone, why waste the materials for a minor cosmetic change? You should make them have a bigger light area and if possible, make them produce more light underwater(or give a night vision effect when underwater).

The lightbulbs seem pretty ok, but needing to be powered kind of ruins it. When building homes, most people don't like to use redstone lighting because hiding the wires is annoying and kind of pointless since the lights will almost always be on. I think you should change it to 2-3 glass panes(3 blocks for something that small is a little extreme) and 1 glow dust with no need for redstone power.

A lot of Minecraft recipes don't make a lot of sense. They're more 'visual' rather than logical. For example a redstone repeaters uses three stone blocks, when really the stone part of the block is almost nothing compared to the stone in a single stone block.

I made the candle have low lighting on purpose. I don't want it to be as bright as a torch, however I do have plans to increase its light level later. The iron ingot is there because the candle's base is made of iron. The candle isn't meant to provide proper lighting, it's just decoration.

For the lantern, it's purely for those who prefer a lantern over a torch. If you want your house to look nice with lanterns, then you gotta work for it. It's part of the fun. I will probably make the recipe give two lanterns instead of one later.

The lamps aren't really that hard to get. You can't really run out of wood and glass. As for the light level, I won't make it any brighter. The redstone lamp in the vanilla game also has the same light level as glowstone, I don't see why the lamp should have more.

The ligh bulb is basically a smaller redstone lamp, but I am considering a non-redstone alternative to it using glowstone dust.
