LightFixer

GitHub

This plugin makes sure that light is calculated correctly when a chunk is generated.

Minecraft will per default use a fast light calculation algorithm for newly generated chunks. It is fast but does not look good. If you have ever seen very dark shadows under trees and cliff overhangs you know what I am talking about.

This plugin will no doubt slow down the world generator process but the result is nice.

    Would it be possible to have the plugin recalculate the lighting in existing chunks for the entire world? Preferable with some sort of status report every minute or so.

    Requesting an update to this essential plugin!

    So, we can't do anything? Maybe, someone could write a clientside mod?

    Since 1.2.3 lighting is calculated clientside not server side. I'm not sure this will fix anything anymore, be interesting if the author weighed in on it.

    I was able to get it to work by compiling it again from the sources, it had trouble loading a method who is still there -_-.

    But the lightings doesn't seem to get fixed anymore. :(

    Dose this need updating for 1.3? I'm getting errors in the console when terrain is generated and it caused dynmap to shutdown. I'm running bukkit dev build #2296. Would be a great plugin if I could get it working.

    @diggormortis: Go

    Yes, though I can't imagine this reply is of much use to you 2 weeks late.

    @StuckingFoned: Go

    A sensible thing to do would be to pre-generate a large amount of terrain using lightfixer. This helps save resources during normal play anyway, and helps reduce the frequency of chunk errors and other BS that can happen with a restart or crash

    @thedeadlytao: Go

    It works, but only on terrain generated after lightfixer is installed. AFAIK this plugin does not need to be updated to work with most Bukkit iterations currently out there.

    An update for this plugin would be fantastic. I run Terrain Control on my server and need to fix the lighting errors that come with my more complex terrain.
