Are you sure you want to report this?

When you are making your redstone suggestions, please note that Java and Bedrock will not have the exact same the same redstone systems - this would require redoing redstone system completely on one platform or the other. The two systems are functionally different and are going to stay that way. Please be sure to tag your suggestions with (Java) or (Bedrock).

    I think a combination of an amethyst shard, dye, and a redstone lamp should be the recipe for a colored redstone lamp.

    Maybe this could happen with the glow squid! Use a drop from that + dye + lamp, maybe incorporate the amethyst and you get that as a colored lamp!

    Your right about it being hard to do. The entire lighting engine would have to be rewritten.

    There should be also an always active torch, which emits the same light level as torch. Crafted with redstone dust, torch and a dye. Also you can craft them to lanterns. If these get added, you can have for example biome-dependent light in villages.

    it would definitely make for interesting build opportunities

    I think it would be cool if there would also be color sensitive light sensors that would give a different Redstone power depending on the color of the lamp its viewing.

    It's very unlikely that they'd do this since it's apparently very hard for them to change the lighting engine despite the fact they recently changed it for a new one. Regardless this should be a high priority feature. Black dyed lamps could be used for dim lighting since black light doesn't exist.

    i think it wouldn't even be that hard,scince mojang could do that with overlays (of that colour)if the player is in a specific redius to the coloured lamp like with the carved pumpkin if it's on your head,but you dont have to put anything on your head,its automatic.

    Lighting engine of Minecraft should most likely be improved for this to work, otherwise I like it.

    Yeah, this is really a good idea, I wanted to submit that but I saw this. Please Mojang, include coloured Redstone lamps.

    I really like this idea but i think black lamps would add dakness. For example if you have a light level of 4 and add a black lamp it would be the light level of 3

    I always have to put stained glass over it, and it barely even works. I always hated that it was always just yellow, or white colored lamps. But if they add these in, my building houses will be finished. I believe this is a great idea and should be added to Minecraft. It’s awesome.

    If Mojang would add this feature to Redstone Lamps it would also be cool if they changed the behavior slightly so that it emitted a light level equal to the redstone power level that powers it. So, if you power it with a power level 7 it emits light level 7

    This HAS to be a feature in minecraft! Speaking of dying things, how about being able to dye redstone wires, repeaters, and even slime blocks! the wires wouldn't connect to each other, the repeaters would only take power from its dyed counterpart, and dyed slime wouldn't stick to other differently dyed slime. Also I think the lamps would emit the same color light as their selected color. And I read about some comments about the lighting engines, so maybe add a setting for color blend for lower-end PCs?
    I really hope these get added as well!

    A lot of people are suggesting that the Black Redstone Lamp should be omitted, but what if Black Redstone Lamps functioned in a way mimicking ultraviolet lamps? Instead of lighting up an area like a conventional light source, it makes certain types of blocks appear fluorescent, kind of like how a spider's eyes or glow squid's body is bright but does not cast light on the surrounding areas.

    Maybe the color could depend on the signal strength!

    It would be the closest thing to having rtx without spending 1000’s of dollars, and without having to look through your folders for data packs.

    Maybe, using dispensers, you could change the color of lamp, and it wouldn’t get rid of the dye in the dispenser.

    Vechrozilator NO! Black light is a thing! It shouldn't just be excluded or make darkness. It should actually make black light! Black light is a little odd, but I think Mojang could do it. It would make for some really interesting and awesome scenery. It's hard to explain, but I'll try my best: This light would be somewhat purple, (Again, black light is a real thing and this is based off of it.) but if it were in a dark room, the light wouldn't spread very much but be bright in its own spot. The black light would make some colors look neon and almost like they're glowing compared to everything else that is dark. Sorry, this is really argumentative and probably hard to make, but it would be really awesome to have black light, as well as all the other colors of redstone lamps, in Minecraft.

    I hope this will be possible now that OpenGL 3.2 is being used for Minecraft. Nothing would set the mood of stargazing with the Spyglass than blue moody lighting under the Moon. Colored Lamps makes more sense than torches and would incentivize you to craft Redstone Lamps instead as they are often neglected for building with due to being expensive.

    Soul lanterns don't give off blue light, but they're still a wonderful addition to the lighting family. Even if we don't get coloured lighting, it would be great to have coloured lamps.
