IIRC you have to basically rewrite the whole lighting engine.

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.

 

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

 

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

Technically, no.

You should be able to "fake" colored light with a block with wanted vanilla light-amount, and access to the Tessellator.

I had some fun with a TESR a week or two ago that faked a "star", 'shining' a soft diffused light to it's surroundings, and fading the further away it went. If the block of the corresponding tile's TESR had a light-value > 0, it could have been seen as what the OP seems to want.

Horribly expensive on rendering, but still do-able without rewriting the engine.

There was a guy a while back, and spend a few months working on it. This is the minecraftforum.net post he has for his mod. He explains how he did it, but it required a huge amount of ASM to be Forge compatible.

 

And using a

TESR

for this is simply put a stupid idea. It is VERY expensive and honestly, I don't think the FPS drop is worth it.

A fake and cheap way to do it is by modifying the shadow/light color ramp making brighter lights different  color that dimmer lights.

 

Another way is using shader's glow effect but you can make multicolored glow based on some kind of block meta. That way you can simulate a light glow  fake multicolor but won't be 100% like the mod above but would be pretty neat .

 

There are already shaders to make monsters, lava, eyes of spiders etc glow. You can increase the glow and multicolor it based on code. But obvs will only work when shaders are on.

I've always wondered if you could sort of fake it by using a "dynamic" entity model. Imagine you had an entity that doesn't move that is created to coexist at the light source block position. Then in the model for the entity you scan the surrounding area and create model cubes for each block in the vicinity and simply put a texture on them that is transparent with light tint of the color you want.

 

So basically the entity would be creating a colored filter over the surrounding area. You would probably need to make each block in the dynamic model to be a tiny bit bigger than the blocks to ensure it rendered on top of them. If the updating of the model caused a performance issue you could simply only update it when a block changed.

 

Basically imagine draping a colored transparent blanket over the surrounding blocks. Just a thought -- seems like an approach that could work, would be easy for most of us to program, and not too performance heavy.

I found the original thread about the other attempt which worked out for him: http://www.minecraftforge.net/forum/index.php?topic=13154.0

 

You might get some inspiration from it. But, as he says, it is "pretty much is incompatible with everything right now".

    • There's a scheme I got into where they promised to trade Bitcoin for me and take a cut as a commission. Seemed like a good idea at the time. But then, things went south real fast. They ended up transferring   $190,000 worth of my Bitcoin. I was devastated and felt completely helpless. That's when I stumbled upon the Wizard Web Recovery Tool. It was like a beacon of hope amid chaos. With this tool, I could finally start digging into what went wrong and hopefully get my Bitcoin back. Using Wizard Web was surprisingly easy. I just had to plug in some details about my Bitcoin account and let it do its thing. It started scanning the internet, looking for any clues about what happened to my Bitcoin. It felt like having a detective on my side, searching for answers. And guess what? Wizard Web found some leads. It uncovered evidence of the scheme's shady dealings and helped me track down the people responsible for losing my Bitcoin. Armed with this information, I took the case to court. After a long and hard-fought legal battle, the court ruled in my favor. The perpetrators were held accountable for their actions and faced criminal charges for their involvement in the scheme. It was a victory not just for me, but for anyone who's been taken advantage of by these kinds of scams. Thanks to Wizard Web Recovery, I was able to get justice and reclaim what was rightfully mine. It showed me that even in the face of adversity, there's always a way to fight back. And with the right tools and determination, anything is possible.   The following is the contact information for Wizard Web Recovery.   Email: wizard web recovery((@))programmer . net
    • Hello, good morning. I know some programming and I'm interested in mod creation. That's why I've decided to follow a tutorial guide on YouTube by TurtyWurty. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhoX9cmAZqA&t=160s&ab_channel=TurtyWurty I've followed the tutorial perfectly. The problem is that when checking the food, the texture doesn't load for me. However, everything seems fine no matter how much I check. I'm sure it's something trivial, the problem is that I can't find it. Could you help me solve it, please? I leave a zip of my file so you can edit it freely. forge-1.20-Civicraft.rar
    • If you have nvidia graphics, it's important that you make sure Minecraft (and anything Minecraft-related) is set to prefer high performance graphics first. If you only update your AMD drivers it might fix the issue but cause severe performance loss vs Vanilla as it'll be running on the integrated graphics instead of dedicated nvidia graphics
