LampControl Logo


Turn on lamps by clicking them and with WorldEdit!

LampControl allows players to use a specified item to turn on Redstone Lamps and keep them on. This plugin is lightweight and does not use a database to keep the lamps on. LampControl changes the state of the block to ON in your world and keeps it that way until the block is updated. This means you could even use this plugin to turn on lamps, remove the plugin, and the lamps would still be on.


  • Turn on/off Lamps with item (default: flint/steel)
  • Turn on Lamps with WorldEdit
  • OPs can turn on/off lamps with their hand
  • BONUS: Turn on/off Powered Rails just like lamps
  • Plugin automatically checks for updates


  • Choose the LampControl Item
  • Use permissions or allow everyone to control lamps
  • Enable/Disable pressure plates controlling lamps
  • Enable/Disable OPs turn on lamps with their hand
  • Enable/Disable lamp toggling
  • Enable/Disable powered rail toggling.
  • Enable/Disable automatic update notifications


All of the commands below will set the lamps in a WorldEdit selection to ON.

  • //lamp
  • /lamp
  • //lc
  • /lc
  • /lampcontrol
  • /<command> [percentage] - Set a percentage of random lamps to be turned ON
  • /<command> off [percentage] - Set a percentage of random lamps to be turned OFF
  • /<command> update - Update to the latest version of LampControl


  • lampcontrol.use (Only applies if usePermissions: true)
  • lampcontrol.worldedit (Allows using lamp to turn on lamps)
  • lampcontrol.hand (Allows turning on lamps with an empty hand)
  • lampcontrol.update (Notifies user of updates and allows updating command)


In the unlikely event that you missed it in the previous four sections, this plugin has an update checking system! It will automatically notify you of available updates for the plugin and let you download them using the command /lc update. You can disable this feature in the config.


  • Allow toggling of lamps so you can turn OFF lamps that are on. DONE!!!
  • Add /lamp off to turn off lamps in a selection DONE!!!
  • Let me know your ideas!

This plugin is updated and improved upon from LumosMaxima

    Year that would be great! When this feature is added I will use it.

    At this moment I'm using StreetlightsReloaded. It's not up to date but yours is. So think about it.

    PS: Sorry for bad English I'm from Germany :)

    Could you integrate a day / night feature?

    I miss "Glowstone Lanterns" so much...

    Is it possible to add a permission and configurable option to have lamps turn on/off by themselves per the time of the day?

    Meaning, if it's day time the lamps will automatically turn off, night time they will turn on or if it's raining they turn on too.

    I recommend that you use LWC for this. When you lock iron doors with LWC, you can right click to open them and then they stay open until clicked again, but since its locked by you, then only you could close it.

    I might look into this when Spigot 1.8 is out. :)

    It should work with protection plugins. It checks if a user has permission to build before changing the state of the lamp.

    It works fine with WorldGuard on my server.

    Hey, love your plugin, can't live without it!

    I wanted to ask you if you could please add a feature for 1.8: Being able to force an iron trapdoor to "open", for decorative purposes :D

    (You could already implement it though, so it works with Carbon until Spigot 1.8 is released :P )

    @jacklink01: Go

    Could you add interaction compatible with protect plugin? (ex: residence ,worldguard etc)

How have you been living without this plugin?
