Mega torch range

Torchmaster offers three new torch options to help your low light construction. The Mega Torch not only offers the same light as glowstone but it also helps prevent mobs from spawning from a much larger radius than normal torches. So you can build much more peacefully at night or in dark caves.

The Terrain Lighter is a great way to light up a new area quickly and efficiently. Just place the Lighter, add however many torches you want placed, and add a fuel source. Then just wait for the torches to place around the block. This cuts out a significant amount of time placing torches all around your new base.

And finally there’s the Dread Lamp that prevents passive mobs from spawning, such as bats and squids. So if you’re building in a cave or underwater, just place one of these and you’ll have fewer pests getting in the way of your construction.

I can’t seem to find whether the Mega Torch radius includes Y axis in addition to X and Z. Does 64 blocks radius mean 64 blocks in all three directions or is the Y axis shorter than the other two like the Extra Utilities Magnum Torch?

The volume is a cylinder with r = radius (64 by default) and h = r * 2. The torch is in the center of the volume.
As far as I know, this is the exact same logic as the magnum torch.

In case anyone comes here for the same reason I did.

To have full coverage you’ll need to place your torches not more than 90 blocks apart on the x and z, or 127 blocks on the diagonal.

Thanks for the mod Xalcon. Apologies for the necro.

This is no longer accurate. It now appears to be a cuboid with length, width, and height all 2 times the radius.
