Hidden Lights Addon (1.12+) Now with Craftable Light Blocks!

Tired of lighting up your base with unsightly torches? Or is glow stone not blending in well with your build?  Well Hidden Lights is an add-on that aims to give better alternatives to light sources!

Using the new ability to add new blocks this add-on adds new types of glow stone with the textures of popular building blocks! More blocks can be added if requested, but currently available right now include. 

  • Stone
  • Stone bricks
  • Bricks
  • PurPur Block
  • Netherbrick
  • Sand
  • All planks
  • Quartz Block
  • Polished Andesite
  • Polished Granite
  • Polished Diorite
  • Dark Prismarine
  • Prismarine
  • Endstone bricks
  • Endstone
  • Cobblestone
  • Smooth sandstone
  • Smooth red sandstone
  • Red sandstone
  • Sandstone
  • All Vanilla Ore Blocks
  • Grass and Dirt (grass color only seems to match forest biomes at the moment)
  • All Concrete blocks
  • Craftable Light Blocks For total invisibility

Crafting the Blocks couldn’t be easier as well! Simply take the block you want the glow stone to look like with a glow stone block in any crafting area and you’ll receive the corresponding block! Crafting is also shapeless! Example below

New To Hidden Lights! 1.13+

Light Blocks

Light blocks are a new block added in the most recent beta that allow total invisible light sources so i decided this would be great to add to Hidden Lights.


This first light is at a light level of 1 so its not very bright in order to increase the light level of the block place inside a stonecutter to craft the other light levels.

To remove a placed light block simply place a block on top of where it was placed and it will disappear.

These blocks become perfectly hidden when placed beside there corresponding block while also keeping your base lit up just like glowstone would!

Feel free to request new blocks to be added.

    If the addon isn’t working remember to enable experimental gameplay on your world. Also please add red sand as a light block or make it so that you can only craft sand glowstone with sand; at the moment you can use red sand to craft the normal sand glowstone

      sadly I could not get this to work. On mine it was saying to disable adblocker, I did (all 5 of them) still did not work.
      sorry man

  3. LancelotF says:

    MCPE 1.12.0 Oficial
    Any fix?

    Everytime I press “get link”, it gets me to some porn site. Wth?

    • Rivers177 says:

      Yikes! Its the website that takes you to the download itself, they changed something since i started using them to where now they redirect to ad pages multiple times before allowing to go to download link. Looking for a fix.

  6. Kelsie says:

    I can’t get this to work. I downloaded it and added it to my game. I even went to the behavior pack and resource pack area and enabled them. The game says there is nothing wrong and they should be working. I can’t find nor craft any of the items in survival or creative. I have an Android and I’m using 1.12 PE.

  7. KatrinaKing says:

    and i didnt go STRAIGHT to media fire after “get link” i had to go through adds for games that like 16 and up :(((

    • Rivers says:

      This is creator I’m not currently logged in. I tested and it does appear sometimes ads for games do pop up instead of going straight to mediafire this is new and prob something the shortened url people did. I’ll look into changing what it goes through in the future when I have time but for now after trying many times I was able to get it to go to medifire for the download. Hope I could help!

    I can not download it, so I want it as a zip file.

  10. Racquel says:

    How do I get this I pressed download and it takes me to truth finder can u tell me why

    • Chaz says:

      I have v1.12.1 on a AmazonFire. None of the blocks can be crafted into light blocks. I even tried to craft the light bulb, and that doesn’t work either.

  11. C.Latte says:

    Things that would be great to be added(I think):
    – Glass (block and panes, all color)
    – Trees (log, stripped, wood, leaves)
    – Grass Path
    – Ore blocks

    Would be great if the creator put the Id (or damage value) of every block in the add-on so /fill command can be used

    Thanks for making a good add-on

    • jkl says:

      You are so right!

    • Rivers177 says:

      You can use the fill command, instead of Id number just enter the name of the block. The names are the name of the block you want followed by _glowstone. Example. grass_glowstone, or for concrete its the color followed by _concrete_glowstone so black_concrete_glowstone. Hope this helps.

  12. Hadoom848 says:

    You should add glass blocks to it. But as of now its great! 👍 😁

    tried to play with this on win10 and it shows up in my game settings where it should but not when im actually *playing* my game. i do have experimental gameplay on. tbh this is an issue im having with two other mods i downloaded from here too and as far as i can tell everything is set up as it should be. no idea why i cant actually access the blocks once im in game unless there was an update the mods need to be adjusted for

  14. Drakosoldier says:

    To be honest its great one issue is. The block itself also glows whixh isnt geat i dont know if theres a way to fix that but the block just stands out a bit. If you were able to fix this thatd be great

  15. EnderPreston says:

    This may just be me, but this mod is NOT working on Windows 10. I would rate 5 stars, but I can’t even use the mod. Minecraft shows it successfully installed in the interface, but when I apply it to a world, the items aren’t there, and I can’t craft them, either. Can anyone please help me out here?

  16. All41 says:

    Can you make this work on xbox

  17. Car says:

    Include a Grass/Dirt Block variant please. I hate having to dig holes all over my base to put in torches and cover them with carpet that doesn’t always match!

  18. Anonymous says:

    Grass block variant maybe? I hate having to put down a torch in a hole then cover it with a green carpet that doesn’t always match!

  21. anonymous says:

    I really want this addon, but it sends me to this page that has a lot of ads and I can’t get the pack.

    • Rivers177 says:

      On that page click the checkbox then underneath that should be a little white arrow in blue box. click that then you’ll be taken to page with 10 second timer after that counts down you’ll be able to click get link and you’ll be taken to the download.

        Regular stone and stone bricks should already be added. I’ll test there recipes later today and make sure. Ill also add in cobblestone and sandstone asap thanks for the suggestion!

      • Rivers177 says:
