- www.thinkgeek.com released a real physical torch that could be purchased for $24.99, and was able to be placed on walls.
Torches act as if they are not there, and players are able to walk over it. Being a non-solid block, this even prevents sand and gravel from falling down past a square with a torch on it. Sand or gravel break when they fall on top of a torch. If sand or gravel is placed directly above a torch, they act as if they were on any other solid material, allowing them to be used as environmental triggers, such as Airlocks. When being placed in water, the torch breaks due to the water closing in on it.
Torches can be found in Abandoned Mineshafts, Strongholds, Igloos, Villages, Woodland Mansions, Bonus Chests, and the End`s exit portal. They can also be found in the majority of mineshaft Chest Minecarts.
- Before 1.7, naturally generated torches in an Abandoned Mineshaft would not emit light. This could be fixed by placing a block next to or near the torch. This is referred to as a Lighting Error.
- If Torches are naturally generated in a village (on the sides of black wool blocks), the Torches have a chance of not being on the Black Wool.
