Dynamic Lights is a graphical mod that allows light to be emitted from entities. This includes players holding glowing items, such as Torches or Glowstone, glowing items dropped on the ground, or even mobs set on fire. These lights will dynamically follow the entities they are being emitted from, hence the name.

Due to this being merely a visual client-side mod, dynamic light does not affect gameplay in any way other than improving sight. Hostile mobs can thus still spawn in areas illuminated by entities, and all other blocks, items and mobs will not react to dynamic light in any way. The mod's visual lighting effects can be toggled on and off using a configurable key, L by default.

By default, the mod supports dynamic lighting only for vanilla items. Custom glowing items and light levels can be added for any item in the mod's configuration file, and it also provides an API for other mods to use and support dynamic lights natively.
