Realistic Torches Mod for Minecraft

What is Realistic Torches Mod 1.11, 1.10.2, 1.10, 1.9.4, 1.9, 1.8.9, 1.8, 1.7.10


Realistic Torches Mod will be destined to be a real challenge for modpack makers. The main mission that Realistic Torches Mod need to be accomplished is to cause torches burn out after an exact amount of time (can be configured). This will encourage Minecraft players to move toward more permanent light sources early on.

Main features:

  • Torches are recently unlit when crafting, and should be lit by using a matchbox in a crafting grid or flint and steel after being placed. As a result, the matchbox must be acquired before players can explore caves safely, prevent hostiles from spawning, etc.
  • Torches will burn out after an exact configurable amount of time (about 60 minutes in real time clock, luckily this can be editted in the config file) then become unlit. This step will urge Minecraft players to seek more stable light sources early on such as lava or glowstone.
  • Permanently lit (vanilla) torches can be crafted by using a glowstone crystal instead of coal.
  • Certain items and blocks (torches, glowstone dust and blocks, lava buckets, etc.) will emit light when held. This feature is disabled by default due to possible performance issues but can be enabled in the config.
  • Torch recipes added by other mods will be removed to ensure that the matchbox or flint and steel must be acquired to craft lit torches (can be disabled in the config).
