For Minetest 5.0 and above

How do I install this?

Makes players emit light while holding any luminescent item. The amount of light emitted equals the brightness of the item. Luminescent armor is also supported when 3d_armor is installed.

Rewritten and improved fork of Piezo_'s illumination.



Do you recommend this mod?

  • Simple mod but great game changer.

    This mod provides great quality of life improvements to Minetest.

  • Simple mod, great game changer

    This is a good basis for so many mods, but even on its own its very useful and 'realistic'

    Edit: i just realized someone made a review with the same title on the original mod lol

  • English

    Essential to explore caves!

    Simple and very useful.

  • Works okay but not extensible

    The mod does a good job at what it is advertising to do. It is however lacking any hooks for other mods to tweak the behaviour without remaking the entire mod. Instead I recommend using wielded_light in combination with 3d_armor_light. It does the same thing but also supports light from dropped items and offers an API for other mods to utilize. As such, it is much more likely to be compatible with other mods.
