Items producing light

by midimaze » Post

How do I make an item produce light while held in hand?
I've been looking all over tutorials and can't figure this out.
(I hope this belongs here)

There's been a walking light that you can wield around for a while. It's known to be a bit laggy and requires shaders I believe.
Sofar has about the most updated code I believe in his torch replacement mod.

Study the mod to figure it.
