    Or maybe (more like the fill command) /light ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

    Maybe like 

    /light fill ~ ~ ~ ~10 ~10 ~10 8

    /light set ~ ~ ~ 8

    Or, if the developers can work it out,

    /light x1 y1 z1 [x2 y2 z2] <lightvalue>


    /light 345 73 -278 338 80 347 7

    If you set lightvalue as >15 then it will say: Too many blocks in the specified area. (Maximum 32768. Specified [value])

    You should be able to make a high light level that visually looks dark.  That way, you could build things with dark areas without any mobs spawning.

    Yes this would be great! I'd love it !!

    I could then make the new lantern in beta do something!

    /light <add/remove> ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ <distance> <color>

    The ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ because if you wanted to light a hole room it would be easier to use location-location rather than a single location.

    This command should also allow you to query the light at the block position

    People could abuse this then just use /light ~~~ 10000 which will blind people.

    That would not be possible because the maximum light level in Minecraft is 15.  Even if it weren't, it couldn't blind people because computer screens are not bright enough.

    Yes, you're a very good idea. I had the same idea. I thought about updating this instruction on 1.14. Lol In this way, as we used command to make firearms, we would not have to consider the light source.
