Dynamic Lights Shader

Dynamic Lights is a very useful shader pack which adds an entire new use for the torch items. You can now light up your surroundings without placing down a torch. All you need to do is to hold a torch in your hand and everything within a close proximity will be lit up and more visible when it’s dark. This is very useful if you’re out wandering outside during the night or if you’re down underground mining for ores.

Creator: Gabriel Paixão, Twitter Account

How does it work?

Hold any type of torch in your main hand to torch up the night. (It works for both normal torches and redstone torches.) It’s also very useful if you’re down deep underground mining and need some quick light to find them ores.


This pack is limited to iOS and Android only right now. Windows 10 support is coming soon.

  1. Download Resources .McPack

    Please update the SEUS shaders so it supports Windows 10 Minecraft! Please they look awesome in the pictures but they don’t work on Windows 10

  3. A kid says:

    I’ve been waiting for a year. Thx

  4. Endergize says:

    Does it work, when we hold the torch in the Left hand? (secondary hand slot for shield)

  5. RomanFox2 says:

    Wish any light source has this same effect.

    • Lloyd says:

      No, it actually does. At least, with glowstone, it does. But that probably means that sea lanterns, jack’o’lanterns, etc. work, too.

  6. TheCreeperHuntr says:

    YESSSS! (And also, first XD)

  7. skiclad says:

    nice! one question guys, is it possible to make a dragon mount addon that uses a horse id but ender dragon skin over it as well as the dragon animations? idk but iff its possible soneone should really make the Dragon Mounts mod from java onto bedrock edition.

  8. InfinteGames says:

    Very Nice! Reduces the waste of coal to make torches!

  9. Qeis Ismail says:

    Haha, its a creeper behind it

  10. Stiw91 says:

    I didn’t think it was possible!

  11. Luv4eryone says:

    WOAH dats rlly awsome! I love it so much <3 Though it does seem that you also admit light when your not holding anything in your hand, this makes it a little bit harder to stay invisible if your using a potion of invisibility but other than that it’s a great add on!

  12. Lloyd says:

    How does one do such sorcery?????

  13. Erikminecrafter says:

    Does this works with glowstone, sea lantern , Jack-o-lantern and beacon?

    • jely710 says:

      It works with anything that can produce light like torch, redstone torch, end rod, glowstone, jack o lantern, sea lantern, lava bucket, beacon, etc. So its awesome for scary maps in a forest or something!

  14. Lean Hidalgo says:

    good work!!!

  26. KirbyPlayzPE says:

    OMG! FINALLY!!! Hey creator, what about the other blocks/items like glowstone, sea lantern, magma blocks, lava buckets, etc. Aren’t you gonna add those effects/features to the other blocks that emit light?

  27. Jenno says:

    Finally! 🙂

  28. FallenDuelist says:

    Finally! This will definitely come in handy!

  29. Dark says:

    does it really come from the torch or does it come off the player at all times? honest question for the dev

  30. Jacob says:

    Very awesome, but when I activate the addon and and open my world, all block became invisible and I dont know who to fix that. Could you help me please! Thank for your responds.

  31. ENGIPLOT says:

    Hi. I’ve watched the history of Minecraft PC version and it has an item called lantern before. It was an item that it will lit up your surroundings wherever you went. But the lantern item has been removed so promptly and no one knows the reason.
    BUT. Now you’ve made this shader pack and bring this feature back!! Hooray! We have a hero now (And this’s for MCPE!). Thanks for making this shader pack. I appreciate this soooooo much! 😀

  85. MasterZwick says:

    Ok, for some reason it won’t load on my iPad. Does it work on version 1.15.2? Because sometimes it crashes and sometimes it just freezes. Idk if that the pack or Minecraft being buggy… But I would like to use this pact this is such a great idea!

  86. DigitalClark says:

    When will the Windows 10 update for this mod come :)? Really would enjoy this mod on our realm! 🙂

  87. DOGE LORD says:

    MY MIND IS BLOWN H-HOW THIS IMPOSSIBLE I-I-I Uhhh I don’t what say anymore

  88. Gamershy says:

    works as advertised but has a couple issues. If paper doll is enabled, any time its on screen, you emit light, also, if any enchanted item (or item with the enchant glow) is in the ui (inventory screens, hotbar, etc) you also emit light, evem if its not in your hand. So it still needs a bit more work

  89. planet says:

    please updated for minecraft version 1.6×××
