Jack-O-Lantern is a type of block, that emit light in all directions. Jack-O-Lanterns are brighter than Torch for 1 point. Jack-O-Lanterns can be placed anywhere as long as the blocks directly beneath them are solid and opaque. By the way, they will remain in place if the blocks below them are removed after placement.


Jack-o-Lanterns are one of the easiest blocks to acquire in the game.

These blocks can be obtained from one block of Pumpkin and one block of Torch on the Workbench.

Jack-O-Lanterns can be removed with any tool, but an Axe is the quickest!

As a Crafting RecipeEdit

1 Pumpkin + 1 Torch ==> 1 Jack-O-Lantern

Use these blocks to create light at night in Survival Mode! First of all, use these blocks as light sources for growing crops (Wheat etc.) at night!

Second, use these blocks to create floor/ground, walls etc. in Creative or Survival Modes, so it will look like as embedded light sources.

A Jack-O-Lantern has ability to submerge in water. Use this ability to make your underwater navigation more easier.

Jack-O-Lantern is one of few directional blocks, having a face image on one side and none on the other three lateral sides. The direction these images face can be controlled via the direction the player is facing when placing the block: a Jack-O-Lantern will face toward the player placing it. This can be used as a directional indicator.
