Colored Lights Mod for Minecraft 1.12.2

Colored Lights Mod 1.12.2 adds new Colored Lamps to Minecraft that can emit colored light. It also aims to unify the whole color stuff in Minecraft with Colored Dusts.

Colored Lights Mod

Note: For the colored light to work you have to install Albedo (Earlier Mirage, only for v1.0.0, you can find it here). Colored Lights will work without it and still emit light but it is not colored. The max. amount of light sources is limited in the albedo.cfg. You can change it if you want more light sources.


Colored Lamp

The colored lamp is the main product of this mod, it comes in all 16 colors and two variants: Colored Lamp & Inverted Colored Lamp. The Colored Lamp will emit light if you provide it with redstone power. The Inverted Colored Lamp is the opposite of the normal one, it emits light as long as redstone power is turned off. Colored light is emitted if you have installed Albedo as mentioned above. If you don’t want it to emit colored light just turn it off in the config file (coloredlights.cfg). It will then emit normal Minecraft light.

Note: Colored Light prevents Mobs from spawning by default (configurable in colorelights.cfg), but if you reload the world Colored Light is mixed with Normal Light. Normal light will disapear after some time (#randomDisplayTick).

Color Card

If you want to color your already placed blocks, you can do so now! The Color Card can color different color based blocks like Wool or Colored Lamps. To do so your Color Card needs Colored Dust in its Container, which you can open if you select the Color Card in your hotbar and then Sneak and Rightclick. Now you can color your blocks simply by rightclicking them. To switch Colors, press “G” (default Key, you can change that in Controls under Colored Lights).

Currently supported Blocks: Wool, Stained Glass, Stained Glass Pane, Terracotta, Concrete, Concrete Powder, Carpet, Glazed Terracotta, Colored Lamp
