Dynamic Lighting Plus

You ever wished that you didn’t have to constantly place down torches to see where you’re going? Well with this add-on there will be no need for that. Dynamic lighting, some glowing mobs and more, this add-on has it all.

Dynamic Lighting

Dynamic Lighting Plus is an add-on that adds, well, dynamic lighting. Dynamic lighting basically means that when you hold certain items, then the area around you will light up. It is a very useful feature.

These items will activate Dynamic Lighting when held:

  • Torch
  • Soul Torch
  • Redstone Torch
  • Lantern
  • Soul Lantern
  • Campfire
  • Soul Campfire
  • Glowstone Dust
  • Glowstone
  • Beacon
  • Crying Obsidian
  • Magma
  • Shroomlight
  • Jack o’Lantern
  • Enchanting Table
  • End Rod
  • Totem of undying (on and off hand)

Glowing Mobs

With this add-on installed, some of the mobs will also receive a glowing effect. It’s a subtle effect but definitely adds to your playing experience.
The mobs that will receive this effect are
  • Blaze
  • Magma Cube
  • Vex

Burning Mobs Glow

Well yes, pretty much what it says on the tin. When mobs are set ablaze they will light up since they are on fire.

Adjustable Brightness

When applying the add-on, you’ll also have the option to adjust the brightness of the dynamic lighting to your liking.

To support me and see how I made this add-on, you can watch this video

Known Unfixed Bugs

  • When getting very close to light emitting mobs, the light will flicker
  • When flying in creative at top speed, phantom light blocks will spawn (this doesn’t happen when walking, you can get rid of them by simply walking through them)
  • Standing in a non full block with no nearby air blocks (like a 1×1 tunnel with ladders), will block light

Changelog View more
  • Added the End Rod and the Totem of Undying to the light emitting list
  • Increased the brightness of light emitting mobs (Blaze, Vex, Magma Cube and burning mobs) to light level 7
  • Greatly reduced flashing (nearly never happens now)
  • Reduced flickering when close to a light emitting mob
  • Standing on/in blocks like snow or tall grass will no longer prevent you from emitting light (except if no air block is near)
  • Added a .zip download for people who prefer it

    Hey Goggled, same person who was wondering how you were gonna add support for mobile on World Fabricator (amazing Addon btw) and I wanted to know how you were able to edit the shader? The shader was unable to be edited with text edit for some reason. Did you have this problem or did you use something else?

  14. NeolRyong says:

    I have a question.
    Doesn’t this light come as other mobs recognize it as a light?

    Hello, Gecko. It is an absolutely beautiful dynamic lighting. Will it be okay if I made a video about your add-on?

  19. MrAgentBlaze's Second Account says:

    Nice addon, don’t update this once glow squid comes out, i don’t want them to have a win

  20. AlbertossaurusJWFK says:

    And I think that the ores shine …🥱

  21. Hybred says:

    Make the totem of undying glow

    Why? Because you can put it in your offhand, but you can’t with torches. So you’d be able to mine while having light. It also looks like it could be a glowing object anyways, very mystical

  22. RyuPlayzYT says:

    Will this mod work even when I use another mod on top of it?

  23. I clicked because glowing diamond ore smh nice clickbait

  24. OMG can u post the glowing ores texture pack u used in the video i wanted this for a long time plz do it!
