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

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


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.

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

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

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

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.
Made by smelting coal. Used to make awesome candles.

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.

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."
