I was working on some stuff for my next puzzle map and i have a room full of ice. But it's really dark in there. Does anyone have any ideas of a way i can light it up without melting the ice. I tried torches and glowstone but they melt ice.

P.s. Sorry if this is in the wrong section didn't really know where to put it.
I wonder what i should put in my sig?

Portal blocks provide good light and the last I checked which was a while ago, they didn't melt snow in my map. If you can get a mod like invedit or single player commands you can spawn them.

mushrooms might light it up but they give off a very small amount of light, probably the same amount as a portal tho. if anything i would use active redstone behind a wall like this.

:cobblestone: = cobble or any other wall material
:GP:  = redstone
::  = space

Redstone torches do not melt ice. All other fixed light sources do.

Nixfriarr and enchilado are both correct. Ice melts due to the light level it's exposed to.

I would either used recessed torches or redstone torches to provide light.
I don't know how to deal with this

If you had SPC, you can perform the lighting bug with glowstone. I don't think it melts ice as the actual block doesn't exist, but the light source does.
   To perform this, (may take a couple tries) simply place one glowstone block, then use your wand to select the block, and type 'set air'. That action should remove the glowstone block, but keep the light source without melting the ice you mentioned. It might take several tries, but its worth it :D

Who the hell said redstone torches don't melt ice?

I have a room filled with ice and lit by torches, not one of them has melted.

You can use it to fix world hunger by making a PopTart LMG and putting it on a helicopter. Then, fly to Africa and start shooting at crowds.

Is the room big?  I am building Elsa's ice castle from Frozen out of ice. I used diamond blocks to create a tall pillar and placed a glowstone block on it. The ice doesn't melt, but the room is lit fairly well. OR just use pakced ice. It doesn't melt whatsoever

Light melts when it comes in contact with level 12 or above light. So you could place torches recessed about 3 blocks, ditto with glowstone, or lamps. Then the light level of the room will be 8. (11(maximum light level for ice) - 3 (the light level taken by ice) = 8)
Wheeee. Look at this, i figured out how to type stuff. Hey-- While you're looking at this, mind checking out my youtube channel? It will have more videos once i feel like recording and editing :P

I notice the date is about 2 years ago. By now if you still play the game, you probably know that Packed Ice is in the game, and it doesn't melt by any means, though it isn't see-through, and if you have to use regular ice, Redstone Torches are you best bet for lighting. If you need more light, I'd make the ceiling high enough to where you can place glowstone or torches on it and the light level on the floor is less that 11. It's birghter than a redstone torch, and it should be far enough away to where it won't melt regular ice
