Armour have method onArmorTick - called when you are wearing armour. (inside your armour class, override it).


For vanilla armour - indeed - PlayerTickEvent or LivingUpdateEvent, check eq and do stuff.

1.7.10 is no longer supported by forge, you are on your own.

This is assuming that you'd be changing the light level of the block where the player's head is. What you could do is save the player's last x, y, and z location somehow and on every armor tick, compare that to the player's current location. If that has changed, set the old location's light level to 0 and the new location to 15.


It's also worth noting that doing several light updates a second could be problematic.

I like trains.
