A mod that simply adds a helmet with dynamic lighting.

🔦 What is it?

This is a very simple mod that just adds a mining helmet that lights up your way in dark areas such as caves and ravines. Zombies can spawn with Iron Pickaxes, and mining helmets. There’s a config option to disable this.

🧪 Latest Updates

  • The mod now supports Minecraft 1.19!
  • The mobs that spawn as miners is now a tag, #mining_helmet:miner_mobs, and has been expanded to Husks and Zombie Villagers alongside the original Zombie for customizability
  • Added Lucent Support, (see below)!

Lucent is our open source smooth dynamic lighting mod that will automatically turn the Miner’s Helmet dynamic lighting into a buttery smooth experience! It is not required, however when it is installed it will use that instead. That’ll give you smoother, more performant lighting, and all the other benefits it brings! Here’s a video comparison!

⛏️ Crafting

You will unlock the recipe for the Mining Helmet as soon as you obtain a Lantern. You can craft it as follows:

Lights up dark underwater areas
