What is a good technique to light up vast areas quickly?

  • What is a good technique to light up vast areas quickly? musicwithoutpaper

    I have a Bukkit server, and in part of that server I loaded on the Star Ship Enterprise.

    One of the things I still get annoyed by is mobs spawning where they shouldn't. I think the best low-complexity and future-proof solution is to use lighting to prevent spawning where I don't want it.

    So, when I find a large dark room, how should I light it? Running all over the room and adding torches is slow. Since I run a Bukkit server, it is very easy for me to install plugins. I already installed WorldEdit.

    I am very much OK with installing additional plugins to add the lighting, because the lighting can continue to do its job long after the plugin is removed.

    Can you provide me with some helpful information to accomplish the task of lighting up large empty rooms? And can you suggest how I would light up with non-level surfaces? (like the sloped roof of the Enterprise, and of the interior rooms)

    I don't mind using extra torches, but don't want it to be too crowded for aesthetic reasons.

  • I'm running a Spigot server on a Raspberry Pi as a project and because of the obvious RAM limitations I have to turn off the Nether. So, I was wondering if there is a way to set up a simple shop where players can turn in Iron, Gold, Redstone, Diamonds, etc. for "cash" or whatever and then use that to purchase things that they can't get (Nether related) and things that they can use for projects, but don't want to gather (eg. need lots of Iron, but really don't want to go mining).

  • I have a minecraft server which I can change the JARs on. Currently I am using v 1.2.5 of Minecraft_server jar with Minecraft Forge installed to allow the use of the Buildcraft mods. On my previous server I just had bukkit installed, this allowed me to install mods like worldedit, but not buildcraft. I really need a mod that will allow world editing and creative building, but I don't want to lose buildcraft. Is it possible to have bukkit and forge running at the same time? How would I start? Seems you can only download bukkit as a JAR. Alternatively, a mod which is/like worldedit that would

  • I know that redstone torches are dimmer than normal (coal) torches. I also know that someday torches won't last forever and we will need to craft lanterns. But today I got an idea... I have tons of redstone dust, and I was wondering how much light can redstone torches provide. Do they provide enough light to prevent monster spawning? Would it be viable to use redstone torches for general illumination?

  • In MineCraft Hexxit you have these interesting ore bushes. They require very low light to grow. I've made a room that is dark enough, but this of course also means the room will be full of monsters after a while. Turning the light on will prevent the bushes from growing. Is there any way to prevent monsters from spawning in a room without using light?
