Subscribe to download Lanterns and Candles

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
Lanterns and Candles 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]

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

Modified the Wizards Lamp Script to make the lamp stand straight up when placed.

Added a Wizards Lamp. (1 Silver Ingot, 1 Filled Petty Soul Gem) (Requires the "Arcane Blacksmith" perk)

One of the Sovngarde Candles wasn't set to "static" and could still be moved after placing.

Added Empty Wine Bottle Candles
Added Mara Statue with Blue Light

To Use
1. Drop from your inventory
2. Once the item is where you want it, activate it to lock in place.
3. Activate to turn the flame on/off
4. "Grab" it to put it back in your inventory

Thank You. I have had high level [skilled] characters for so long I forgot about that Perk.. Sorry for the confusion..

@Wanked One quick thing to check, make sure you have the "Arcane Blacksmith" perk. The Wizard Lamps require that perk.

@Wanked I will take a look at it as soon as I can. It wouldn't be the first time that happened actually.

The mage's Lamps have disappeared from the craft menu. They use to be there, and were my favorite exterior house lights. I reinstalled Skyrim , but that didn't help. I Unsubscribed , then Subscribed again , but that also did not help. Steam crashed thier servers a few times perhaps that muffed your build..

@Timesplitter I gave a thumbs up to your collection. There's some interesting mods in there I would like to check out, especially the player owned merchants.

This is a mod I always think I can do without but I always resubscribe after the first hearthfire house. Big Like!!!

@werewgrin The flickering is light sources clipping into one another when they overlap. There's not alot that can be done with it, it's just how the game works. All you can really do is experiment with the placement.

I seem to be having problems, and I'm not sure if it's the mod causing them or my computer..

I've put quite a few candles around my houses after installing a lighting mod that made it dark and dreary in there, and I've always had flicker problems. The candles cast light correctly on their surroundings when I'm close to them or when I look at them right (I stand in one spot and rotate the camera, and the light flicks on and off a couple times as I pan past it) and then they flicker off and stop casting light. Only the glow immediately around the candle remains.
I can post screenshots if need be.

I have tried changing my driver settings, altering every display setting I can think of in every way (from high to low in every combination) disabling my other lighting mod (changed nothing) and reordering my mod list. Nothing makes any difference. This is driving me NUTS.

Does anybody have any suggestions of other things to try? Or might it be a glitch with the mod? Thanks for any help!
