Glowstone Lanterns

With this plugin Glowstone Lanterns you can make lanterns, when it's going dark the glass of the lanterns will change in glowstone and when it's daytime it will change in glass again. The great thing is that you don't need to place a full lantern but only a glass/glowstone block, so you can use it for everyting. This plugin is very usefull for a large city to light it up, that looks really cool that the lanterns will change in glowstone! You can also place prebuilt lanterns, so that's really usefull if you want to plase a lot of lanterns in a little time. You can enable glowstone lanterns with /gl, when you place a glass or a glowstone block it is marked as a glowstone lanterns, this block will change to glowstone if it is night and to glass if it is daytime. If you use /gl l 1 you will enable prebuilt glowstone lanterns, if you place a glass or a glowstone block there will apear the prebuilt glowstone lantern you selected right there. There prebuilt lanterns are in external files, so you can make your own prebuilt lanterns and share them with other pelople.

    You rock dude! Thank you so much!

    One question, I tried to give my mods access to create them by giving them glowstonelanterns.gl but it still doesn't work. Have the permissions changed?

    You can modify these settings in the configuration file. (/plugins/GlowstoneLanterns/config.yml)

    I don't really understand what you mean sorry, but yes indeed if you have a lot of lanterns they won't change all at once, that's simple to prevent your server from crashing, you can customize the delay in the configuration file.

    This has stopped working for me as of 1.6.

    Is there an update coming? I love this plugin!

    Okay I've been using this for a long time, but at this point my world has so many lanterns that doing single updates by tick takes way too long. Is there a way you could add how MANY to update per x time? I could probably get away with 25 lights going off every tick, my server is pretty fast.

    I think is not a changed ticks, i think is a problem with the update vom WorldGuard. In the log the plugin writes the correct day/night change in the console. After a time the change step by step.

    Strange, I really need to figure out what the problem it, it might even be a function in bukkit wich is changed, I don't know. I can't help you for now, I'm sorry.

    I was wondering if there is a issue with the plugin working with multiverse. I run a server with multiverse and my ticks in my config file, even after i change it to match sunrise and set in the main world were this plugin is mainly used, end up not matching after a few hours. And none of my admins or other owners have changed the time according to them. I didn't know if a time change in a seperate multiverse world would cause the config file ticks to be off with the main world.

    @snitride: Go

    Yes it works, BUT you've to change something!

    I saw Glowstone Lanterns running on an 1.4.2 server. Now the only problem is that it looks like the day and time ticks are changed, I mean the time scale is different than before. This causes the problem that the glowstone will turn into g lass at night. You can easily fix it. With the in-game comamnd /time set <value> you could check when the sunset starts, remember that value, you can change the default sunset time in the config file of glowstone lanterns to the new value, you've to do the same thing with night->day, I hope you understand my message ;)

Do you like the Glowstone Lanterns plugin?
