This mod for Minecraft 1.7.10/1.8.9/1.9/1.10.2/1.11.2/1.12.2/1.13.2 adds a key to the game to place a torch. Configure that key to anything (e.g. middle mouse button) in the normal game settings. It works purely client-side and does not need to be installed on the server.
Note: The torches to place must be in your hotbar.
The Middle Torch version 1 to 6 supports:
- vanilla torches
- modded torches that expand vanilla torches
- Tinkers' Construct's Stone Torches
- Silent's Gems' Torch Bandolier (v0.2)
- Carpenter's Blocks' torches (v0.3)
- TerrFirmaCraft's torches (v0.3)
All these versions support the same torches, even if they don't exist for that Minecraft version.
Version 7 (Minecraft 1.13.2) changed the way torches are detected. We now use the tags "forge:torches" and "forge:torchplacers". You can add new torches (or torch-like items) with a data pack or by nagging their author(s). Also, items that are linked to a block that extends BlockTorch are still supported.
