Known Bugs:

  • none known at the moment


If you want an extra function (or something made configurable), just ask me and I'll add it that option to the config!


  • NeatMoster made RealisticTorches v1.4.1 (last updated: 22 Oct 2011) and gave me the sources, which caused me to start creating Bukkit plugins. Without him, I would have never created a Bukkit plugin.
