What is Realistic Torches Mod?
Realistic Torches brings to Minecraft an interesting feature when it comes to crafting light sources. It does as the name describes and provides a more realistic experience with torches. They start unlit when originally crafted and will need to be manually lit using flint & steel or with a matchbox.
It’s a very interesting feature when it comes to crafting light sources. It does as the name describes and provides a more realistic experience with torches. The torches start unlit when originally crafted and will need to be manually lit using flint & steel or with a matchbox.
Realistic Torches is a lightweight mod designed for modpack makers looking to add difficulty to the early game. The primary feature of this mod causes torches to burn out after a configurable amount of time, encouraging players to move toward more permanent light sources early on.
For example, if you leave your dwellings lit only by torches you may be left in the dark in the long run. But this addition gives a solution for players that prefers the aesthetic of torches in Minecraft. You can craft a lot of permanent torches by using glowstone crystals instead of coal. This still forces you to seek out better light but at least you can still use the torch if you want.
Certain items and blocks (torches, glowstone dust and blocks, lava buckets, etc.) will emit light when held. This feature is disabled by default, as it is still somewhat experimental, but can be enabled in the config.
Torch recipes added by other mods will be removed to ensure that the matchbox or flint and steel must be acquired to craft lit torches. This can be disabled in the config.
