    I’ve wanted these for so long. Would be so cool for builds like lighthouses

    Spotlights are very useful, they can be used to display objects and make horror maps!

    Would be amazing to light up the side of a skyscraper!

    I don't understand, is the light beam shrinking on your diagram? Wouldn't that be more logic if it was spreading (and maybe losing intensity) instead? Normally, the higher a spotlight is, the larger is the light spot.

    Now that Mojang plans to add crystal/amethyst, which is used to craft telescopes, it could be used to craft floodlights too! (I was thinking about lenses made with a half-diamond before they announced the Caves & Cliffs Update.) It adds a new reason to find and exploit geodes, and it makes sense because spotlights are powerful.

    There should be a shadow effect from on;y this light source.

    i was about to post the same. also had a thought, what if the spotlight effect was a modifier block? a LENS?

    so.. place a torch, then a 'LENS' block. the lens block then takes the light input and sends it as far in that direction as possible, until the light hits a block or travels 'x' chunks.

    i<           dark, dark, dark      lit []

    the benefit of the 'lens' block is that redstone signals could then be transferred 'wirelessly' a redstone lamp at either end of the 'lens' block chain would transfer their states over 'x' ticks

    Rtx<                                                                 >Rrx

    observers could also benefit.
