With this plugin Glowstone Lanterns you can make lanterns, when it's going dark
the glass of the lanterns will change in glowstone and when it's daytime it will
change in glass again. The great thing is that you don't need to place a full
lantern but only a glass/glowstone block, so you can use it for everything. This
plugin is very useful for a large city to light it up, that looks really cool
that the lanterns will change in glowstone! You can also place prebuilt
lanterns, so that's really useful if you want to plase a lot of lanterns in a
little time. You can enable glowstone lanterns with
/gl, when you place a
glass or a glowstone block it is marked as a glowstone lanterns, this block will
change to glowstone if it is night and to glass if it is daytime. If you use
/gl l l you will enable prebuilt glowstone lanterns, if you place a glass or a
glowstone block there will appear the prebuilt glowstone lantern you selected
right there. There prebuilt lanterns are in external files, so you can make your
own prebuilt lanterns and share them with other people.
