Refraction Mod 1.12.2/1.11.2 for Minecraft is a mod about lighting, laser, and similar things. Refraction allows players to manipulate lighting to do everyday survival chores. Players can even build automated machinery and develop scientific methods to solve tasks that were impossible in vanilla Minecraft. Manipulating lightning, creating heat energy, using the laser to attack dangerous mobs… everything is possible in Refraction.

In Minecraft, players can exploit many natural factors to benefit themselves, like harnessing water power to build self-harvesting farms or use larva to create bolder machines… But there is another natural energy that is usually neglected, for it has almost no direct effect on survival – lightning!

Even without daylight, players can still survive using self-made light sources from Glowstone or Torch, but in Refraction, players can harness sunlight to use in many tasks: breaking rocks, killing mobs, converting into solar power for machines… It is even possible to manipulate lights and create a stunning lighting performance!
