Displays the lightlevel of the block you're looking at, or the one you've clicked with the wand! LightLevel

Video Demo

Thanks @iffa


  • Simple way to verify light levels
  • Numbers are color coded (RED: Hostile Mobs, YELLOW: No Mobs, GREEN: Friendly Mobs)
  • Allow use of a "wand" (defaults to torch) so you can left click on blocks and get light level readings fast!
  • Wand toggles; /llwand turns it on or off, that way you can go back to your normal punching goodness!
  • Wand preference saves per user between sessions with use of built in database, no externals to install! Yay!
  • Utilizes permissions (lightlevel.use) (Will be Superms capable soon!)

Config File

The config file is super simple, and should look like this:

    default: true   
    item: 50   
    enable: true

default: Do you want users wands to be enabled or disabled by default? This only applies to first run, once a user picks enable/disable, it will persist through server restarts. item: Item id of the wand enable: true/false, do you want the wand enabled or disabled for ALL users?


{} = needed; [] = optional

`/lightlevel`: Displays the light level of the block you're looking at, current limit is 50 blocks

`/ll`: Displays the light level of the block you're looking at, current limit is 50 blocks

`/llwand`: Toggles use of the wand on or off

    Unofficial fix: download. Built with Java 1.7, will not work with 1.6

    Unlikely to ever update again. Write your own

    Looking forward to an update to this when you can :) I know you are working on MV first. Throws startup errors after the 1.1-R6 changes.

    The wand seems disabled by default, regardless of config settings. All users are having to type /llwand to enable it first (though it's set as enable by default). Other than that, works great on CB 1630!
