Alternatively, torches can be made by using a stick to on a placed, lit torch. This method only produces one torch per stick, but can very quickly convert an entire stack of sticks into torches.
Torches can be placed on the solid sides of most blocks, as well as on top of fences and stone walls. Unlike in vanilla, gravity affected blocks like dirt, cobblestone, sand and gravel cannot be supported by torches, and will fall and replace any torches that are directly underneath them.
Lit torches give off a light level of 14. After a configurable amount of time (Default: 48 hours), or if directly exposed to precipitation, lit torches will burn out and no longer produce light. Torches can also be manually extinguished with afrom an empty hand.
Torches in the inventory can be used toon placed torches to either relight burned out torches, or restart the countdown timer on lit torches.
Torches that have been dropped on the ground will light a pit kiln or log pile on fire. Flying ember particles will appear for a short period of time before the fire block appears. This is a crucial step in the production of charcoal.
