    Excellent Plugin, operates as intended and is much smoother than expected. Would it be too much to ask for 1.8 support? (My 1.14 server shut down)

    The plugin is absolutely great, does exactly what I want it too :)

    I know it would probably be a ton of work but if eventually the "region" could be set using world edit that would be phenominal.

    Thanks again, for all the hard work and for helping me get oriented in it's use :)

    Hello, it SEEMS like a great plugin. However, I am having difficulty working on my server (Java 1.15.2 version) In addition, your guide to do this isn't working at all. It's hard to understand or the plugin isn't working at all. In-game - here's what it says: [VarLight] Could not parse command: String index out of range: 10 at position 20: ....pdate 3881<--[HERE]...

    Can you contact me via discord? CalebCBubba#9767 so you can help me or create a better understanding video than the current one? Thank you so much.

      you probably did not enter the correct syntax, it seems like the parser was missing a Y and Z coordinate as well as the light level to use.

      The Proper Syntax for "update" is: /varlight update <position> <light level>
      Example: /varlight update -200 74 150 15

    Excellent plugin, great replacement for the AddLight plugin (DEV dropped the support, not working anymore on newer versions) so this is great! Thanks for your work!

    Currently using in 1.15.2 and it's working very well. So far no bugs to report, thanks for a quality plugin. Really helps out players in survival with their builds.

    I came over to Varlight from Addlight, which went inactive with 1.14. Works great!

      Didn't even know there was already a plugin with a similar glowstone dust mechanic, lol. Anyway, thanks for the positive review!
