InvisibLights
It's back for yet another round...
1.17 is here! And with it, vanilla added its own type of invisible light sources. The mod will make use of those from now on.
 
Hello!
This mod will give you the freedom to light up your buildings and structures without torches or glowstone blocks.
You can do this by crafting a rod of light as shown below:
 
After crafting one, you only need to have some glowstone dust in your inventory and you are ready to light up your world!
Placed light sources are visible and can be broken while the rod is being held. By using Glowstone Dust on light sources, you can change their brightness.
Here's a short video if you want to see it in action:
 
 
Beware; beyond this line lies the old description.
 
 
What is this mod all about?
You probably know that you need a lot of torches to keep your house well lit. You might also try using glowstone, but then realize it doesn't look great either.
As the mod name suggests, this mod allows you to place invisible light sources. You won't even notice they are there!

In case you want to watch a video about this mod instead of reading the description, have some!
Keep in mind they might show outdated content or mechanics.
Feel free to produce a video yourself, I'll put it here if you let me know.

Content
This mod adds one item: the Rod of Light. (It also adds a block for technical reasons, but you don't really have to worry about that.)
 
Here's how to make one:
 
To place a light source, you'll need some glowstone dust in your inventory (unless you are in creative mode). Hold the rod in either your mainhand or offhand and right-click on a surface. Placing a light source consumes two glowstone dust.
Now the best part is you can make the light sources visible! To do that, sneak and right-click the rod of light. You'll hear a ding sound effect and should notice that all placed light sources have turned visible. You could break them now and even get your glowstone back.
To make everything nicely hidden again, do another sneak right-click.
 
You can also upgrade your rod to the powered version by attaching some redstone to it!
 
The powered version can be charged in any Forge Energy compatible charger, and uses some of that energy to place light sources. Please note that the powered rod of light is only available in the Forge version at the moment.
