LambDynamicLights

Java 16 GitHub license Environment: Client Mod loader: Fabric Version CurseForge

A dynamic lights mod for Fabric.

📖 What's this mod?

It's dark outside, extremely dark... You can't see a lot in the darkness, you wish you had a torch, or a lantern to hold and see in the light...

And this is now possible with this mod as it adds dynamic lights to the game. You can see in the darkness thanks to your torch now!

This mod adds dynamic lights to Minecraft. Dynamic lights are lights created by an entity holding an item which makes light as a block, or created by an entity on fire, etc.

📖 Usage

Using this mod is very simple!

Install it in your mods folder along with Fabric API and ModMenu, (and Sodium if wanted for better performances).

You will notice nothing at first but if you go into the video options or into the settings screen of the mod via ModMenu, you will notice an option called Dynamic Lights which is by default off, choose the wanted configuration and enjoy! You can also configure the mod by editing the file in config/lambdynlights.toml.

Build

Just do ./gradlew shadowRemapJar and everything should build just fine!

📖 How does it work internally?

Check this documentation.

📖 Is there an API? How to use it as a developer?

Check this documentation.

📖 Compatibility

  • Sodium is recommended for better performances.
  • Canvas is compatible but still WIP: expect huge lag spike with it until a proper lighting API is done in Canvas.
  • OptiFabric is obviously incompatible.

Please, when you write the name of this mod, don't add spaces.
