Latest file for v1.18.5: 1-click install

This is a   stand-alone version   of a mod that is already included in the 'CoB' Server Pack.

Mod description:
Cave beacons can be used to lead your way through larger cave systems. They won't spend much light, though.
Beacons can be crafted. Glow worms are needed for this, so this mod makes glow worms harvestable as well.
Besides using the worms for crafting beacons, you may also use them as home deco or as paint on blocks.
The treasure hunter (trader) may sell the blue light version of these beacons as well sometimes.

This version of the mod is free to use on any multiplayer server.

Does this mod still work in version 1.18.15?

I'm excited to try this!  Glad it's up-to-date.  Harvesting glow-worms to use as a perpetual but low-light source seems a vanilla-friendly way to create in-cavern waypoints, making spelunking less daunting for those of us navigationally-challenged.  Thank you!

It's the key that you have set for "Select Tool/ Clayforming Mode".

I'm unable to harvest glow worms with this mod. I've tried hands, a knife, and shears. Am I doing something wrong, or is this not functioning properly anymore?

Thanks for this! I play singleplayer so I tend to avoid the server packs since they are usually most beneficial for and balanced to multiplayer. But something like this is quite useful. Very nice work.
