    I spent the last few days updating the lighting system to allow light based on RGB values. It's still pretty rough right now, but I think it is looking pretty good so far. There might be a small performance hit, so it is of course going to be an optional setting.

    New Lighting:

    Old Lighting:

    I think the next thing I want to add is a gem + torch recipe to make colored lights. :D

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    Edit (Again):
    I replaced the original example pictures with a newer version.

    The old images can be found here:

    I don't like it very much. For the space gun it looks lush, but like you said, it's rough! I hope you can change the RGB differences too.

    That is just magnificent! It is sure rough but as long as it permit me to create a light based double rainbow, It is awesome!

    Now thats an awesome update. I love the content, but I always felt like you could do alot more with the lighting. I think you are gonna get alot of mileage out of this effect!

    That actually sounds and looks really cool! Is this a feature that'll be in 1.1 or a later patch?

    Edit; On second thought, it might have to be toned down quite a bit if torches let off a yellow tone. That stone looks like a bunch of different colored ores. I'm a bit color blind and have trouble telling silver and iron apart, unless they're right next to each other. Don't get me wrong, I like it, it just really needs to be done right or all the stone will look like colored ores....

    As he said, this is rough. Off course, it will be far more subtle in the final version.
