IMPORTANT!

THIS MOD CURRENTLY WILL CRASH YOUR GAME IF YOU ARE NOT USING THE LATEST RELEASE (0.7.2-dev)!
ALREADY PLACED TORCHES APPARENTLY ARE NOT GOING TO CRASH YOUR GAME THOUGH BUT I CAN'T GUARANTEE THAT.

 

I'm looking into the problem but feedback and help here would be much appreciated.

 

This mod for Minecraft 1.7.10 replaces standard minecraft torches in a way that torches can be placed exactly in a corner.

A torch's position will dynamically change if surrounding blocks change, i.e. if one of the corner's blocks is broken it will automatically move from a corner position to the remaining blocks middle and the other way around.

You can partially influence the placement behaviour via the mod's config menu to make torches automatically switch to a position on the ground if the torch-bearing wall is broken and vice versa.

This requires you to restart Minecraft or unintended side effects might occur!



New in 0.7.2:
You can also manually change a torch's position by sneaking and right-clicking the torch now!

 

Standard torch behaviour is still provided and torches can be used in recipes but I can't guarantee compatibility with any mod changing/extending torch behaviour.


Dependencies

  • Minecraft 1.7.10
  • Minecraft Forge 1.7.10-10.13.4.1558


Notes

Beware, this is my first mod for Minecraft and still experimental!
I'm going to update this mod according to my planned features (visible on this mod's GitHub page) but can't provide a fixed update plan as I'm working on this in my spare time, so please be patient.
