    After playing Minecraft Story Mode and seeing the colored lighting, I've been disappointed in the light color in Minecraft

    It never made sense to me that (especially in shaders) a torch made the same color light as a sea lantern)

    I love this idea, also as a programmer I could think of a way to make it perform better.

    If the lighting system works the way I think it does, aka every block has a value of light level from 0-15, then I have an idea. Maybe it could be that every block could also have a color from 0-15, like how you used to spawn in colored wool and stuff with commands. This wouldn't allow blending of colors, but it would allow up to 16 unique colors without taking up too much space.

    glowsquid should drop something that can craft these light sources

    Colored light would be extremely useful in changing the atmosphere of a build.

    I personally expect that this is one of those features that will happen, just not soon due to the rewrite of the lighting system required. Though, who knows? Maybe it'll never happen, or maybe it'll even happen in 1.17.

    I would suggest a new light emitting ore Luminite. It could appear and many different colors and would light up caves with a colored glow. This would leave all regular lights with the standard white color and open up the door for a new light object created from Luminite. It could interact with redstone to turn lights on or off. Possibly even change the emission output in a scale effect.

    coloured glow lighting ... awesome idea

    Light used in practically any light source tends to emit the same color (white). To help build more atmosphere in the world, certain lights should emit a different color. for ex: soul fire's could emit a more cyan color, redstone ore can have a more red hue, lava should create an orange atmosphere, even the new glow berries in the cave & cliffs update should have a yellow tone to them. It's just not as appealing to use the same color for every light source.

    Would like some "black light" or something that doesn't omit visible light, but hinders spawning of creatures. Though "black light" might rather be used to darken an area (with or without hindering creatures spawning).

    This sounds like a great excuse to add a luminescent ore!

    This is in the RTX version of Windows 10 Minecraft, but I'd love to see it in the base game!
