if you have ever made a map and have a part where you want it lit up? but don't want torches, glow stone etc.?
one way to do this is delete the torch texture but this would not work well if you put this up on planet minecraft and people don't use the texture pack it would look strange. "but its invisabe how do u now whare u are putting them and where they r??!?" but if the block is visible when you are in creative so you can place and destroy them with out looking for the center of light. of course they should be intangible (you cant touch them) so you can walk through the light without hitting the block.
I actually understood it... Oh no! I must be an alien!
Seems a bit interesting. Simple way of putting it:
A brick should be added that is an invisible block that you can walk through and it provides light. You know where it is because there is a ball of light in it.

Isn't it weird thatpalindrome is emordnilap backwards?
once i got some kind of glitch that makes invisible light blocks. so i was running a snapshot for minecraft 1.4 and made a beacon. after that i uninstalled the snapshot and when i looked at where the beacon was placed, there was light but no beacon. when i placed a block on it, the light stopped. so yeah thats one way to get it. and this happened long before minecraft 1.4.2 was released
In creative, it looks like a small white cube in the center of it's block space. Makes for easy manipulation and map working. In other game modes, it is totally invisible and you can't "break" it at all, but any entity (players, etc.) can move through it without any problem at all. For all intents and purposes, this seems like an "indestructible air block that emits light around it and that water refuses to go through and where you can't place any other block at all".
No choice about those limitations, since you want to solve this as a block, then it must "occupy" it's block volume.
The only other option would be to make in into an entity, visible and interactible with in Creative, intangible and invisible in other modes. That is a better option IMHO for it would make ONLY the light and not allow player to "guess" where it is because of other blocks that couldn't exist in the space where the "light" is centered.
I support, it's not that hard to understand. He says torches don't work to well on adventure maps lets make an invisible and intangible block that u can see in creative mode but not in survival, would really help in Adventure maps
"a place-able light sorce that is not detectable while being in survival mode, emits light, and has the ability for you to walk through it"
honestly, i really like the idea of an invisable light sorce but there has to be a better whay of detecting it than being in creative. How about it has a transparency of 0.1. sorta like a very see through glowstone block but has a consistant texture! should only be acceseable in creative through the decorations and or misc tab! i belive that comand blocks should be in the redstone task but back to topic.
i love the idea, just make it a little less vaugh and put some pics in it.
