Description
Adds place-able lanterns and candles that can be crafted at a forge using ingots, or candlesticks and lanterns found throughout the game. You will also need candles, which can be crafted out of troll fat at a cooking pot. There are also Candelabras, Shrine Bases, and Candlesticks from Sovngarde.

I have finished a standalone version of this mod for Dragonborn

-Added a Tabletop Wizards Lamp
-Added an optional file on the Nexus that replaces all candles with the ones from this mod, with the exception of the shrine bases (they are usually supporting shrines and would look strange if they were removed). Download it Here.[skyrim.nexusmods.com]

8/8/2013
After several requests the following items can now be used to make the candles at the cooking pot;
-Mammoth Snout
-Beehive Husk
-Horker Meat

This mod is beyond awesome. I would have to say it is one of my favorites!
I was just laying torches around my houses to light them better until I found this mod.
Its simple, elegant and easy. Plus, and I don't know if its just on my system, but if you put a candle in front of a mannequin its less likely to displace itself from its stand (an annoying bug).
Big thumbs up for this mod!

Lamps set outside of my hearthfire home disappear. They stay for a period of time but I guess when the outside area refreshes they are lost. One was left but it was in the ground, could not be activated or picked up. It may be that the others dropped through the maping.

Lamps inside the home were not affected.

Secondary odd but I like it..
if I console the wizard lamps with the long base, I get the ones looking like the no base.
the regular no base dropps to the ground as normal.
the one that should have a base drops to the ground and on clicking it, jumps to the air at a 45 degree angle hovering.. and when lit straightens out. it is a hovering light because it has no base. looks cool like that,

again may just be with me and testing it,

It's just being a little buggy for me. I have about 20 filled petty gems and it also seems to dislike stolen silver ingots.

This was exactly what I was loking for in a mod anyway, Thanks for building it.

@ tyndal The only time the Wizards Lamp requires a petty soul gem is when crafting it at the forge. If it isn't appearing at the forge make sure you have a Filled Petty Soul Gem in your inventory, an empty one won't work.

having a small issue with the wizards lamp not seeing the petty soul gems in inventory at times.

Nice mod. I always hate the basement area in a hearthfire house. You could out up a few auto placed lights and that was it. I am now putting lights on my roof.. because I can.

There were always dark areas that I disliked. I use the alter for lutes and have them lined up but it was too dark. Skulls on a shelf.. detail lost.

Thanks again!

hey mentilreq:
I love this mod and I have a request: please PLEASE add the script you used to make Wizards Lamp stand straight to make Candelabras and Candlestick work. Been trying to put those two in my Hearthfire house but to no avail----they always just fall onto the floor and there's nothing I can do to make them stand right

very awesome mod btw. Thank you

I love this mod! Thank you! I love decorating the various houses with all the loot I collect, but they are normally so dim that you can't really appreciate the details in the weapons and armors.
