Handheld glowing item [1.6.2]


Recommended Posts

I would like to create an item that when right clicked with, it will start to light up the area around you.(Like a lantern)

What would I need to put into the onRightClick method to make it switch between the off item and on item?

Also how do you add a light value to an item?

One way of doing this is by creating an invisible block with a set light level, and then having this block be created by the item every few ticks (don't do it too often, lighting eats memory like there's no tomorrow) and have the block remove itself after the same number of ticks. This isn't too hard to implement, but there are probably many more efficient ways of doing this (in terms of memory usage) but this method is fairly easy to do.
