    LessLight (outdated)

    ME: "Are you tired of seeing through walls?"
    SUPERMAN: "Sure."
    ME: "Well, you still can! However, light no longer passes through walls anymore."

    This is a patch that I play with for the lighting.config file that makes the game a bit more atmospheric and surprising by removing light's ability to pass through materiel. You never know what's around a dark corner now, so expect jump scares while spelunking.

    Got a nice, lit up night:

    And, presto! It's still just as lit up! However, now the light no longer passes through walls:
    Less light at night.JPG

    This simply changes a few key values in how the light interacts with material.


    If you like this, check out: Tanz' Lighting Overhaul! which is a complete lighting overhaul including customization for the light's ability to pass through material.

    I'm giving a 5/5 because it does what it said it would do. But to me, you loose a lot of atmosphere when you have this mod enabled. It's great for mining and dungeons but when you enter buildings with walls thicker than 1 block, the lighting feels a little "meh"

      That's fair. I mostly just make stuff for myself, so I expect differing tastes. I'll add to this critique that even for mining and dungeons this change might get annoying for a lot of people.

    A nice, simple proof-of-concept mod that would go well with my Shadow-Casting Lights mod for that ultimate atmospheric feeling. I'd also recommend the COLOREBOUND mod, since it makes it too difficult to spot ores in my opinion.
