    What it does:

    Lights your path in front of you whenever you hold a torch, in either hand.

    Warning:
    This can and will cause a bit of clientside lag. This is unfortunately unavoidable, as the lag is caused by Minecraft client processing light updates, which I can't alter from a serverside script. Consider using OptiFine if you need a less-laggy option.
    Note that you can mitigate this a bit by adding a rate limit.
    To do so, find the "update:" line and below that add a line of "- ratelimit <player> 2s" (change the '2' to however many seconds of ratelimiting between updates is wanted)

    Good plugin but drops your fps by half. Asked for support on discord and they just kept trying to come up with reasons why it was me thats lagging and not their resource. Will use when you fix the lag issue. Quit blaming everying and do testing on it. Terrible discord support.

      Lag is unfixable - I've added a explanation of why in the resource readme. (In short: it's a minecraft client issue, it can't be fixed from the server). You can mitigate it a bit with the 'ratelimit' command, but only by so much.
      Also you received excellent support on Discord, and then I went afk, and you got pissed off at a random non-staff user being unhelpful while I was afk.

    TorchLight works perfectly and is truly useful to my server. It is perfect, as always sir.

    Works fantastic! Even better if the config had settings for adjusting the light level for different sources

    Love this Plugin, Used Visual Studio Code to Adjust the Torch Lighting to 10, Set 1 Torch in My Server Maze Kit and Players Have loved the lighting in My Dungeon Maze with this Script. Verified Working on 1.15.2 with NO LAG or ISSUES.

    Is it possible to update this? Seems to cause a lot of server lag in 1.15. Been looking for this kind of thing so I am a bit disappointed

    I don't know if the problem is your script or Denizen but it's not working in 1.14, using latest dev build of Denizen the light is stable if you are standing still but flickers so much when you move or interact with blocks to the point it's unusable.

      Hi, the new update should fix the flicker problem!

    Simple but great plugin I've been looking for!~ Allows for players to hold a torch that actually works like one!
