The Shadow of Magma Blocks is Too Dark when Smooth Lighting is Turned On

      What I expected to happen

      was for the shadow of magma blocks to behave like the shadow of a normal solid block.


      What actually happened

      Magma blocks casted a shadow that affected the light level too much.


      Steps to reproduce

      1. Make sure smooth lighting is turned on
      2. *Place magma blocks near a light source 
      3. Notice the difference between the shadow of a magma block and a solid block.**

      Although not required, I noticed that this bug is even clearer when magma blocks are arranged diagonally/ in a checkerboard pattern.*


      Additional Notes:

      This bug does not seem to occur when smooth lighting is turned off.
