You can create lamp posts that automatically turn on when it gets dark, and turn off during the day. You can also redstone power them and trigger them whenever youd like! There are 6 types of lamps!
To create a lamp post follow the below instructions.
- Build one of 6 lamp patterns using a glowstone block as your bulb.
- Power the power block (The power block must be directly under/below the fence)
- Hit your glowstone bulb with a redstone torch and youll get a message saying the pole was created!
Now you can power and un power it to turn it on or off. During nights the lamps will light up, and during day they'll turn back off! To destroy a lamp post break the bulb.
Note: When testing we found it easiest to place a redstone torch directly under the fence and power it on, then hit the bulb with a second redstone torch.
