TorchMaster (Prevents Mob Spawning)

TorchMaster Mod 1.17.1/1.16.5 gives you a special torch which prevents mob spawning in a configurable radius. It is so interesting that you should play it.

Note: The torch is supposed to only block “natural” spawning from low light levels. Mob Spawners should still work.


Version 1.1 adding a new Block: The Terrain Lighter is a block that places torches in a configurable area. The Terrain Lighter needs fuel (Coal, wood or any other furnace fuel), torches and a redstone signal to operate (Lever, Redstone Torch, etc). The Block helps you lighting up the area around you while you build your home early game.

You should keep in mind that the Terrain Lighter is not perfect. There might be a few spots which are not lit enough to prevent mobspawning, but it should be decent enough for all those lazy guys out there.


Version 1.2.0 added the Dread Lamp – a lamp that works similar to the mega torch but prevents the natural spawn of passive mobs (“animals”) instead:

Bat, Ocelot, Squid, Pig, Sheep, Cow, Chicken, Rabbit, Wolf, Horse (including Zombie Horse!), Llama and other Entities which implement IAnimals. Breeding animals will still work inside the working volume of the lamp! Only natural spawn will be prevented.

The Lamp has a bigger range by default (64 blocks) since the lamps intended use is to reduce annoyances like massive squid swarms spawning around your ocean base etc.


In Version 1.3.0 mega torches have the ability to burn only for a predefined amount of time. This feature is disabled by default, since it is intended to be used in adventure maps or to balance a modpack.


Mega Torch size comparison

The mega torch is decently sized to easily distinguish it from normal torches

This image shows mob spawning still works with a mega torch nearby. So you mob farms can still run while the rest of your base is safe from those pesky zombies.
