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 function 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

    Click here to download the version that works with CraftBukkit/Spigot 1.7.9/1.7.10!

    It does work on 1.7.9 if you use the version that says For 1.7.9-R1.0 on the right. :)

    Hey Can you make it work with Spigot 1.7.9 please?

    Awesome plugin! The only problem I am finding is that clicking the redstone lamp with a stack of glowstone consumes the entire stack. Is there a way to fix it so it only takes one item?

    Hey any chance for 1.7.10 compatibility soon? I get a "This version of Craftbukkit is not compatible! Try /lc update" /lc update just says there is no updates available.

    It is because you are OP and 'opUsesHand' is set to true in the config. Non-op players can't use their hand unless they have the permission.

    That permission check for lampcontrol.hand works the way I intended it to.

    Any chance this could be updated for 1.7.10? Using Spigot
