      Random duplication of torch graphic (particularly the flame) appearing in random places all over the level. Seems to increase with 'relatively' nearby torches. Not sure which axis they tend distribute... it seems to vary some. The first bits of torch light the video were occurring at a diagonal. Sometimes it's a flicker every now and then, seems very random, but there are times when there are 'sprites' of flame duplicates, about 5-6, perhaps depending on how many torches are nearby. There is an example in the first part of the video... look for the arrow showing it and watch the flickers. There seem to be more flickers depending on how many torches are actually concentrating in that section. In this case, the 'sprites' appear to be happening above where the torches up, so perhaps y-axis distribution in that case.

      What I expected to happen was...:
      Start a fresh world and not see torch flame graphics randomly appearing out of no where in environment when torches are nearby.

      What actually happened was...:
      Started a fresh world and flame is randomly visible in environment as more torches are placed. So far can't tell the correlation with placement of torches, except it seems to occur more often and with more "sprites" (flame graphics) flickering when more torches are placed. Sometimes it is directly in front of you in multiples, sometimes far off.

      Steps to Reproduce:
      1. Start a new world in Survival
      2. Walk around, create torches everywhere and place them in caves anywhere... try maybe lower caves(especially behind walls, different elevations, etc)
      3. See torches duplicate...


      The seed for my world is "4003446118472000559" so if it is easier to test using that data, there it is. The place where I was seeing the artifacts is in same valley as the spawn-point. There are two caves, one descending, one ascending... I seemed to get the most in the bottom cave where I had a lot of torches lighting the way.

      Uploaded video showing what I'm talking about

      Hope that helps.

      I just noticed there is a duplicate... sorry, still learning to use this!!
