Dynamic Lights Mod for Minecraft 1.7.2 / 1.6.4 & 1.6.2
The Dynamic lights mod for mine craft offers few awesome enhancements to Mine craft’s lighting system. This mod makes traditional shining items Illuminate everything around them. The key items that glow are: the torch, glow stones, glow dust, the lit jack o lantern, red stone, the lava bucket, and a powered mine cart. Using this mod allows you to save torches. The torch and the jack-o-lantern are the brighter lights. Going into mining caves with this mod allows you to use fewer resources and fewer torches.
Explore Caves Easily And Quick
You can now explore caves easily with the help of the dynamic lighting mod. This mod while holding a torch or glow stone will light up the surrounding area. It also allows you to throw the lit item and it will still light the area up.
This mod is very simple but provides a really helpful tool. Instead of having to carry the torch around you can sit the torch down and light the entire area. By allowing you to throw the torch or glow stone you can discover areas that you wouldn’t have seen without the mod.
We are talking about features implemented in this mod where living entities burst into flames, creepers ready to explode and will light up an entire area. Items and armor can also be used when you are on fire. Each benefit of this mod will present itself depending on your imagination and what you choose to do with it. Walking around with the torch allows you to see more areas and makes it more realistic. One of the other things that you can configure is the ability to have an item still shine once it is dropped in water. It is kind of a cool little feature. Consequently, you can configure other items that you drop on the ground as well. The toggle button is L.
Find Terrain And Territory
You are able to find terrain and territory that you would not have found without the mod and have the freedom to have other items in your hand instead of a torch. You won’t have to not have a sword in hand because of holding a torch. This mod works in multiplayer only.
