The Torchbow Mod gives you the ability to fire and place torches from a distance with the Torchbow. All you need is it in your inventory with a stock of torches and fire away.
It’s great for lighting up areas from a distance or if you can’t reach certain walls and would rather not build up to those spots.
And it works well in the Nether too!
Plus the range is significant if you happen to be overrun by mobs.
