    but why don't you add a language.yml to let us translate your plugin ??
    I hope you will add that (after I change to 5 stars)

    thanks ;)

    Torches should be from inventory by default in because they could collect free torches and place unlimited i think good addons have good starting balance.

    Nice idea, maybe you can add specific row in config to set the update rate, to check light more often per example

    I love the plugin however it would be amazing if there was an option in the config so that this would only work while holding a torch. While holding other items, Torches are not placed.

      Thanks for the review and there is an option in the config to do that.

    This is an excellent plugin! Great idea!
    There are a few bugs, for example when a player is walking on snow it will try to place all of their torches but apart from that it's great!

      Thanks for the review!

      That bug will be patched in v1.3.2. If there are any other issues post them in the discussion thread.

    Very good plugin for RPG servers. Maybe you coud add the option that auto torch is just enabled when the player has an torch in his hand
