Ring of Candle Light

This Mod adds a ring which casts the candle light spell for an infinite duration, this ring does not take up a ring slot so both this ring and another can be worn. The ring can be bought form the mage Wuuferth in Windhelm. The ring can now be disenchanted and can now be used for other items.

This mod is great for people who want to be able to turn on and off the spell at any time, rather than having to cast the spell and wait for its duration to end. It is also useful in dark lighting mods and helps to find items in dark areas.

*This mod does require Dawnguard at present. For more details about this see common issues.

Key features:

* Adds two rings which cast the candlelight spell
* There is a warm version which has a yellow tint or the default spell which has a blue tint
* The ring also does not take up a ring slot so it can be worn with a normal ring
* The ring can be bought from Wuuferth in Windhelm
* The enchantment can be used on other items if learned
* The Ring can now be gained through the levelled items system (eg. Loot, reward)

Future plans:

* Make the ring accessible in other ways
* More merchants
* May be even craft able
* Might brining out variations (silver, emerald etc.)
* Make the warm version's floating ball have a yellow rather than blue tint

Common issues:

- Wuuferth won't trade or doesn't have the ring in his merchant list.

Wuuferth only will trade if he is in his room,(it can be found in the first door to the left in palace of kings then at the end of the hallway with an enchanting and alchemy table inside) generally he can be found between 8am-12pm in the room, though sometimes he may be walking around the castle in this case you have to wait till he makes his way back or use a cheat to teleport him to you (moveto player (npc id)).

If he does not sell the ring, check that the mod has downloaded in the mod list and that it is ticked. If problems continue delete and re-download the mod.

- Game crashes on start-up.

A very likely cause of this is the requirement of Dawnguard. The mod itself does not use its content; this was simply an accident by loading the dlc while working on the mod. I am still in the process of searching for a solution (e.g. removal of Dawnguard from its requirements) so any resolution to this issue would be appreciated in the comments below.

Thanks, yeah that would have been a cool idea. Not sure how I would pull something like that off, in this case it was pretty easy to get working because I just used the default candlelight spell effect but not sure about changing the position of the light source. Good suggestion though!

I think it should have looked even better if the light actually came from the diamond but, hey, it's only my point of view. Great job anyway and it's a great idea to begin with.

im sure alot more people will subscribe if you took off DLC
Vlindrel  [author] Oct 25, 2015 @ 1:12am 
unfortunately, it is one of those things when you turn it on once it permanently requires it. At least that is what I have found, the only other option I can think of is remaking the mod itself
Officer Brutality Oct 24, 2015 @ 1:21pm 
can you please make it so it doesnt require dlc
Vlindrel  [author] Oct 22, 2015 @ 12:20am 
yeah sorry about that, it was a noob mistake on my part when I was turning making the mod to begin with
Officer Brutality Oct 21, 2015 @ 10:54pm 
I wish this didnt require any dlc it would be easier on me

Vlindrel  [author] Aug 10, 2015 @ 5:11am 
Thanks! yeah the ring does come in handy for those super dark lighting mods

Awesome - now I can install various lighting mods without being blind in caves and indoors.
