I just crafted my first torches but I'm afraid they might burn down my wood house. Also, I don't know how log they will last? How can I make something that wil be a safe and permanent lighting solution? --- Playstation 3 - Tyler310 MGO - Leopard (More info in Quote)
Not at the moment, no. However there are a couple alternatives such as jack-o-lanterns which you can make by finding a pumpkin and combining it with a torch, as well as lightstone blocks which you can collect the dust to create by destroying some in the nether. Those are the only light options right now, unless you want to use loose fire or lava,which actually would burn down your house. --- Gamertag: starocean980; Diamond: 3093-3567-8307 Platinum: 2149-6847-9769
From: | #004 There's no more advanced source of light? Like lanterns?
Not now, no. Notch has said he has plans to add lanterns and make torches temporary, and in fact this feature was supposed to be released during the Halloween update, but he hasn't followed through. --- I will not change this sig until Battlefield 3 is released. Started: February 5, 2009
