    This Plugin does not light up Glass or Colored Glass. And there is no option to enable it. Even if it creates ghost light blocks there should be an option to enable glass lightening.

    It came from Addlight.
    I think it's a very good plugin.
    I also want to illuminate the player's head, fence, glass, etc.I have confirmed the comment that if you break the block by shining glass etc., it will remain as it is.In that case, I would like you to be able to set it from the config etc.I like to use the floating state in Addlight. I look forward to working with you.

    We've utilized this plug-in for a week, before it started to cause lag in the areas where it was used moderately. Even resetting the area's original light-levels, via the commands, did not solve the problem - untill we disabled the plug-in.
    Alas, an inopprtune end to what could have been a great asset to our server.

    It seems to be a good alternative to Addlight, but I need it especially for colored glass, why can't you light that of all things ...? Unfortunately, that makes it completely useless to us... :(

      I'll think about how I can allow Glass Blocks to be lit, the reason why glass is an invalid block is that when you break a glowing Glass block the Light source remains as a "ghost light source"

    Useful plugin. A way to configure the item name and lore of lit blocks would be nice.

    LOVE this plugin Im having a bug ive only seen twice in 500 hours of use..where lighted areas with varlight bug out and dont appear lighted (mobs dont spawn but visually there is no light from anything lighted with plugin) it causes bad fps drop and is an eye sore for what SHOULD be lighted

      Check if the affected area is getting receiving block updates (pistons moving, or in general just any blocks in the area being changed, moved) . In those cases I have to resend the custom light values and updating light on the client tends to be really laggy (even on good pcs)

    A great plugin for controlling light levels without light sources! Works great! I am not sure why more people do not use this! It works wonders on my server!

    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

    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.
