Topic category: Help with MCreator software
I have been trying to do this by using particle generators and a lot of particles, and I have managed to do that. But it lagged a lot, also it wasn't that great and even though the particles were very small they still rotated to the direction of the player. So could you heap me if there is another way of doing this, or can someone make a plugin that lets us make colored lights or change block colors. I studied and I know that getting colored lights is possible but very hard without shaders; but even if we can't get that, can someone at least make a plugin that lets us use Blue's Dynamic Lights mod API. It lets you to do colored lighting in Minecraft 1.19. Even if somebody doesn't make the plugin can they at least help me with how to do it.
Thank You :-)
WHY DO WE NEED COLORED LIGHTS:
|1) What could we do with colored lights:||We can do shader like mods using raytracing procedures, give stunting visuals to our mods when combined with the custom sky and gecko lib plugin.|
|2) What can this do for the developers:||Better Mcreator mods mean more downloads; and more downloads mean more donations, finally more donation mean better and faster Mcreator development.|
|3) What would this let me accomplish.||This would let me accomplish our huge space mod that we made with my friends let us finish the development, and it took almost one year, so when I mean huge I mean huge. (we still can do it with out the colored lights but it would just not be like how we imagined and we are going to release when we feel like we have accomplished everything we imagined). Also this would effect the second reasoning for why do we need colored lights.|
Here is this mod called Blue's Dynamic Lights and it lets you do colored lighting and it works on Minecraft 1.19. (If someone can turn the Blue's Dynamic Lights API into a Mcreator plugin this would be awesome) You can see some pics under.
!!!!!!!! Next pics are NOT from Blue's Dynamic Lights !!!!!!!!!
And Some examples above (these are from early versions of game like 1.8 or 1.12 and they do not use any shaders).
Also this one is for more resound versions of the game like 1.18, but its a fabric mod.
I tried a way around it and its impossible with out using display block entities that are in minecarft 1.19.3 (mcreator curranty only supports 1.19.2 and 1.18), or modifying vanilla shaders like Blue's Dynamic Lights. So until 1.20 support comes, we are not going to have colored lights.
Please let me know if you can create entities like display entitles that doesn't have a hitbox and can be placed incite a block and float with mcreator (their texture doesn't work if you make their hitbox 0). Or if you can make parties not follow the player's head or only stay at one location with out rotating. But the display entity version would be more reliable.
Or the first and the best option "a plugin that lets us change block colors so that we can at least accomplish this with procedure blocks".
