Minecraft has a lot of blocks, but what if they had more? Why do we need them? Please don't just add lists of things! Also, no furniture, guns, or vertical/"sideways" slabs.

    I've always seen this struggle as a challenge to be outmaneuvered via clever visual deceptions, so I'm not so sure how much I like this idea, although I appreciate its being brought up for discussion.

    Using, the mod Optifine You can achieve the same idea by holding a light source or throwing it on the ground.  However, I believe Mojang tried to team up with Optifine but Optifine declined.  So I want to say that they aren't able to add this into the game unless Optifine approves of this I think.

    @rarity41 I'm not talking about dynamic lighting. I'm discussing making any block a light source.

    Hmm, okay @karl smink.  Than, you got a vote!  I read the idea wrong.  I apologize.

    Don't bother with red stone, just provide more light emitting blocks and more importantly light slabs.

    I suggest this should work like redstone. Glowstone dust can be placed on top of any block that redstone dust can be placed on. It is invisible but the hitbox can be seen if you hover over it. It emits a light level the same as a torch.

    I also think that glowstone blocks, end rods, redstone lamps and sea lanterns should emit more light than a torch. I made a separate suggestion for that.
