The Dynamic Lights Mod is one that you’d think would be an obvious thing when it comes to light sources in Minecraft. When you hold a light source, be it a torch or glowstone block or anything in between, before placing it it should give off some sort of light. Well, it doesn’t… until now.
This mod simply adds a little more realism to the game by making light sources glow in your hand before placing them. This also makes cave exploration a little more practical and could even save you in a pinch if you’ve run out of coal and wood to make new torches and only have one or two in your inventory.
