[1.5.2] Make tools glow?


Dmitchell94

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 

Im trying to make a set of tools that actually give off light while they are in your hand but after looking around trying to see if it was even possible I didn't come up with anything. Does anyone know if this is possible and if so could you point me in the right direction?

I did this.  The way I did it is not...very clean but it works.

 

Essentially check during the item's onUpdate call to see if it's the current item (I did all the time, even when dropped, but this is what you're looking for).

Then if so, spawn at the player's head (if air) a block that has the following properties:

 

1) Emits Light

2) Material.air

3) Resistance and Hardness 0

4) getCollisionBoundingBoxFromPool returns null

5) collisionRayTrace returns null

6) shouldSideBeRendered, isOpaqueCube, renderAsNormalBlock returns false

 

Mind that placing and removing a light-emitting block is laggy if you do it all the time (lighting updates) so you'll want to use your item's ItemStack stackTagCompound to store both WHERE you placed the light (so you can remove it) and WHEN (so you can count up/down towards the next time you'll place a light block).

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.

I get around it by not updating the light block every tick, but rather every 3.5 blocks between where the light SHOULD be and where it IS.

what about shaders or a client side only method?

 

"Magic spells has a spell called lightwalk and server side only it places glowstone under your feet an makes the torch give off light while in hand client side." -Rainfey

 

or do they use the same method as you? (havent looked at there code yet was just told this he thinks they use shaders or client side only.)

 

Just trying to find a plausabile method that doesn't cause much lag.

You can do it client side only, Dynamic Lights does, but I don't know how to go about doing that.

    • If you have nvidia graphics, don't touch your amd drivers, otherwise it might fix it but keep running on integrated graphics, which will result in terrible performance. For nvidia graphics, you need to tell windows and nvidia control panel that anything Minecraft related (the launcher, java, etc...) should prefer high performance graphics so that it actually uses your nvidia gpu
