Extend Minecraft to your room with this mod. Let your Philips hue lights extend Minecraft experience by changing the color and brightness of your room. Each biome is mapped to different colors and the color of the lights will change as you travel from one biome to another. Even when you are in the water your lights will turn blue. The light intensity in room will be the same as in Minecraft. Day-night cycle and different light sources will change the brightness of your lights, but also caves and other dark places will make the brightness go down. And this all using the public Philips hue Java SDK. A full immersive experience with hue!

Customize biome colors:

- To add an biome you need the know the id and name and put them in the file and use the same format as the vanilla biomes
Do I need Philips hue lights?
Yes, you need Philips hue lights and a bridge. (For the best experience you need at least 3 lights)
My “huecraft-biomes.info” file is messed up, how do I reset?
Simply delete the file and the mod will create it on start-up
Which Forge versions does the mod support?
HueCraft only supports Forge 1.7.10.
Why can’t the mod find my bridge?
Make sure that your laptop and the hue bridge are connected to the same (WiFi) network, and not to 2 different network routers.
