if you don't mind me asking here (because I don't have a PMC account) But you said that the 1.7.10 version "doesn't have light variants". What does that mean? and do you think you could host the 1.7.10 version on curse as well, so people (who flat out refuse to look at the OP for anything says if its compatable with 1.7.10, as you are GOING to get people who ask for it) can easily find the download for 1.7.10?
There are 6 light variants in the 1.8 version, which are fairy light, paper lantern, orb lantern, flower light, ornate lantern, and oil lantern. In 1.7.10 there is only fairy light, and the fairy lights recipe is slightly different because of this. I'm not going to include a 1.7.0 version of the mod on Curse until I create a 1.7.10 version that contains the same content as the 1.8 version.
