Usage[edit]

Torches can be placed on the top or the sides of most solid blocks, although some will require sneaking (see placement for exceptions). Being non-solid, torches have no collision box.

Gravity affected blocks like sand and gravel will not fall if the block below them has a torch on it, and will break if they fall onto a torch.

Light[edit]

Torches give off a light level of 14. Torches also melt snow layers within 2 blocks and ice within 3 blocks (taxicab distance). Although the colored torch is colored, it does not emit colored light.

Placement[edit]

In general, torches can only be placed on solid, opaque, full blocks; exceptions are listed below.
