Tschipcraft's Dynamic Lights

A server-side data pack/mod for 1.17x-1.21x

YouTube showcase


Supported entities and items such as torches or lanterns will emit light by using the light block added in 21w13a. Some items are water sensitive and only turn off or on inside water. Additionally, all enchanted items will emit light level 6 while some enchants under certain conditions emit light level 9.
For a detailed overview of all supported items and entities, take a look at the wiki pages linked below.

This data pack/mod is completely server-side, but can also be installed on the client only for single-player worlds!

This data pack is also available as a mod with an additional global config file and settings menu when installed alongside MidnightLib.

Decide if you want to download the pack as a pure data pack [DP] or packaged as a mod [Mod].
Put the pure data pack .zip file into the datapacks folder of your Minecraft world, or the mod into your .minecraft/mods folder.


To open the ingame menu, execute /trigger or /function #tschipcraft:menu. There is a Reset and an Uninstall button.


This data pack follows the Smithed and essential MC Datapacks Discord Server Conventions to ensure data pack compatibility.

Some sophisticated redstone contraptions may not work when this project is installed, since the light block is not pushable for some reason. Please report any issues on GitHub.
