Date Updated:

In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to make a custom torch block using blocks and items that will have support for placing on block faces.


This tutorial will show you how to make a block similar to how torches work in vanilla Minecraft. I have used blocks and items for this tutorial so you will have custom model support. Torches are really easy to set up, and provide so many more ways to make your mod light up.

Known Issues

  • If you don't test for both cave and regular air block on the torch item then you will run into some issues placing the toruch undergound. I updated the example so that you guys have the new code with the fix for this issue.
