[1.12.2] Setting light level of Block for meta/blockstate


Recommended Posts


Use your IDE to find it.

Some tips:


Modder Support:


1. Do not follow tutorials on YouTube, especially TechnoVision (previously called Loremaster) and HarryTalks, due to their promotion of bad practice and usage of outdated code.

2. Always post your code.

3. Never copy and paste code. You won't learn anything from doing that.



Programming via Eclipse's hotfixes will get you nowhere

5. Learn to use your IDE, especially the debugger.



The "picture that's worth 1000 words" only works if there's an obvious problem or a freehand red circle around it.

Support & Bug Reports:


1. Read the EAQ before asking for help. Remember to provide the appropriate log(s).

2. Versions below 1.11 are no longer supported due to their age. Update to a modern version of Minecraft to receive support.

Override Block#getLightValue.

The problem is that i want that block to be generated but then it is not glowing at all.

getLightValue in my Block class:

	public int getLightValue(IBlockState state, IBlockAccess world, BlockPos pos) {
		return state.getValue(SEED) == 3 ? 30 : state.getValue(SEED) == 2 ? 20 : 0;

and the way my block is generated:

public class WorldGeneratorKelp extends WorldGenerator {
	public boolean generate(World worldIn, Random rand, BlockPos position) {
		worldIn.setBlockState(position.up(kelpHeight + 10), InitBlock.CREEPVINE.getStateFromMeta(rand.nextInt(1) + 2), 3);
		return true;


But when i use /setblock x y z better_diving:creepvine 3 then it is glowing.
