GOOD DAY MINECRAFTERS!
In the past i have brought old ideas from the bottom of the bottomless pit and shead new light on them,
(Such as Removing Knockback When Drowning, Vines, Ect.)
Today's Idea was first created by
This Wonderful idea lasted less then one week but had a great deal of support.
So, without further delay I give you... The Paper Lamp!
(Just as an EXAMPLE)
Well here is where my point come in.
You ever lived in a snow biome? Had a path that just would just keep needing to be shoveled over and over because you don't like how torches melt a huge ring in your nice yard? And then what if you wanted it lit but Didn't want that huge ring melted into the snow?
Here is where the Paper Lamp comes in!
Snow and ice melt at Light Level 12, And is Prevented from forming at Light Level 10. Wouldn't it be nice to have something that had a Light Level of 11?
But what about you other people living in other places that are free of snow? why would you want this?
Another feature from this idea was to have it placeable on top of Water.
this could help in crossing vast oceans by being able to mark your way.
Having a Paper Lamp in a Zen Gaurden can also be a nice feature, but to make it better why not make it so you can Dye the lamps different colors, each color having a different pattern on it.
But how can I Make this wonderful piece of Decor?
SIMPLE. I already thought of that as well.
(Just an Example)
Poof, There ya have it. Paper Lamps in a bundle.
I don't think there is any point in this, we have enough light sources already
Did you say no because you didn't read the thread? Did you just say "Oh, We don't need more light" Well Read it again. its a light that won't melt snow and ice, prevents snow and ice, can be placed on water, and recolored. Now let me ask you what is wrong other then its a "New light source"
I am absolutely in support of this! A light-source that lights up an area with a logicla explanation as to why it won't melt ice and snow! Absolutely brilliant! I've been thinking about this myself and this is a far better solution for it than I ever came up with!
+1 support from one of the more negative and hard-impressed critics at this forum!
Actually, I'm good for a new light source ;). Support! This would be a nice idea, I like to build in snowy biomes, and I can't make paths. And the water thing would be amazing! Doing adventure maps, traveling across the wide ocean with light from red and blue and green lamps.
While I definitely see the appeal of these lamps in areas where snow is prevalent, I can't see any other use for these other than that and the fact you mentioned you can place them on water. It offers a lot of design options but for a good use in survival, I would just go with glowstone or torches, even in a snow area. I'll keep up to date with this thread to see if it updates with changes, because I can see myself using these in creative builds.
