Topic category: Feature requests and ideas for MCreator
I think "bright" lights would be a great addition to MCreator.
The idea of these bright lights was inspired by my annoyance of how dim the standard Miencraft block light level is. In my world, styled to be like a city, ceiling heights and light heights are severely limited by normal Minecraft lights, because of their inability to provide light to the ground below when higher than ~7+ blocks from the ground. "Bright" lights are just normal lights that create the illusion of brighter/better lights by adding an invisible light-up block above the first block that is below the light. This allows the ground to be illuminated just as if the light above were to be closer to the ground/floor.
These lights (bright lights) then allow a player to place the actual light itself at any height above the floor/ground, and the light will still reach the ground.
As with a normal redstone powered lamp, when powered with redstone, the light block outputs 1.0F in light level, but the invisible block outputs 1.0F as well.
I've attached two images to illustrate the "bright light" idea. Currently, I use these bright lights for some of the overhead lighting fixtures in my mod, as well for some street lights.
