Dynamic Lights Mod doesn’t only add light to the game but also enhances the gaming experience. You see better and more clearly. Moreover this also improves things like the skies which show different colors during the day, dawn and dusk. The weapons are also given a unique and different look which must be loved by most users.
The lighting in Minecraft is effective, but leaves much to be desired for players who have high-end gaming systems and are used to the cutting-edge graphics of the most recent releases. Even for those with older machines, the way that lights in Minecraft leave some blocks looking solid black can become kind of annoying.
Dynamic Lights Mod also helps you save resources by letting one torch last much longer that you won’t need to light another.
While light sources like torches, jack-o-lanterns, and glowstone create lamination when placed, with the Dynamic Lights mod installed, they will illuminate the area around the player while held in the hand as well. This adds a kind of realism to the game; why wouldn’t there be light if the player was carrying a lit torch? Besides that, it also helps cut down on the amount of resources used for mining and digging around in the game. Since a single torch will do, there’s no need to make several stacks, and players can use lines of torches to denote certain underground paths, which helps prevent them from getting lost.

The default key is “L”. You can turn all dynamic Lights on/off with it. You can change the key in the config file.
There is no limit to the number of lights you can create, note however they are fairly FPS-costly, and the mod will attempt to reduce lighting render updates frequency if you overdo it.
I recommend using Optifine HD for replacing Notch’s funky render code with slightly less funky rendering code. Optifine should maintain full Dynamic Lights compatibility unless i break it.
The mod should work in Multiplayer by default, yet is clientside, it cannot lag servers. Note however ‘dropped’ light sources will not prevent Mobs from Spawning, and neither will your handheld light.
