Portable light source for Bukkit servers.

A continuation of TorchLight by caloletti.

Quote from author:

As of MC 1.2.3, lighting is calculated client-side. Neither CraftBukkit nor Spout seems to have an EFFICIENT server-side alternative.


After using the /tl command, simply place a block in the player's hand to illuminate the darkness (configurable with config.yml).


torchlight.use - Allow usage of the plugin.


/tl or /torchlight - Toggle use of the plugin.
/tl info - General plugin information.

Latest Bugs
