Pretty simple mod, I think. I like the way aged torch holders look better than the brass ones, so I made this mod. Put a brass torch holder in your crafting grid with a bucket of water to the right of it, and you'll get an aged torch holder, consuming 1 liter of water. Not super realistic I know, but you can pretend the water is rusting the torch, and anything else is probably beyond my capabilities at the moment. As a bonus, I made it compatible with Vanilla Variants' extra buckets. This is my first mod, so if you encounter any bugs, please let me know (but be gentle about it, haha).

Future plans: Alternate version that changes the recipe to seal brass lanterns in a barrel with water for a certain amount of time, to be a little more realistic. Length of time and water per lantern undecided, feel free to present an argument why you think the time/amount should be a certain way. (Just "I would like it to be this way" is cool and all, but it won't have any effect in convincing me.) Also, if you think there should be a version that contains both recipes for some reason, feel free to say so, and I might add it to the file list if it's not hard. Since both versions would have the same mod ID, I'm pretty sure they would conflict with each other.

If you don't want to use the comments section or want me to reply fast, feel free to DM me on discord: genderneutralnoun#2261. Also, feel free to modify and redistribute this mod as you see fit - usually I'd ask for credit at least, but this mod is so simple I don't think I really need it. Finally, thanks to people on the official VS discord for explaining basic things to me and being a very gentle, patient community (in my experience)!

melodelic Thanks for the suggestion! I like that idea, too. I think I'll do some research on barrel recipes to see how easy it is, then upload an alt version with that recipe instead if I can do it.

As for my discord name, I'm genderneutralnoun#2261, but my nickname on the official VS discord is Flamy, a Dragon 🐉.

As I don't know your discord name, I'll toss it here: I suggest putting the brass torch holder into a barrel of 50L water for x days so that it is more realistic. Otherwise, this is really cool!
