Lanterns and Candles

super mod! Many of my houses and hangouts are now looking far better! Makes great use of mammoth snouts, finally. The variety of candles is a huge bonus. Can't recommend highly enough for those wishing to add to their game.

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.
tyndal Sep 20, 2014 @ 7:51pm 
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.

Thanks for the reply. When I was playing Skyrim today there was a small metal shrine base I believe it was in Fellglow keep (replaying Skyrim) that may have been suitable for a base. Anyway thanks again for thre prompt reply. I have also downloaded two of your other mods today, great work!
mentilreq  [author] Aug 3, 2014 @ 7:20am 
@Roscaria The Mara statue is open on the bottom that's why I added the base. Unfortunately I am no good with 3d modeling software, so I would need someone to close that gap for it to look right. As for adding an Azura lamp, I would probably make it a standalone mod.
Roscaria Aug 3, 2014 @ 12:01am 
Quite a while back I queried whether the Mara lamp could be smithed without the clunky base but sadly got no respone. Hopefully this will eventuate and if so would you also consider making an Azura lamp with red flames?. She is the mistress of sunrise and sunset.

Thank You. I have had high level [skilled] characters for so long I forgot about that Perk.. Sorry for the confusion..
mentilreq  [author] Jun 29, 2014 @ 7:52am 
@Wanked One quick thing to check, make sure you have the "Arcane Blacksmith" perk. The Wizard Lamps require that perk.
mentilreq  [author] Jun 29, 2014 @ 7:34am 
@Wanked I will take a look at it as soon as I can. It wouldn't be the first time that happened actually.
Wanked Jun 29, 2014 @ 7:22am 
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..
mentilreq  [author] Jun 6, 2014 @ 12:51pm 
@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.
Timesplitter Jun 5, 2014 @ 11:17pm 
Skyrim Ultimate RPG Experience: All Expansions thanks you for your mod/mods made that have been implemented into the collection. It does require all the Skyrim expansions, but is composed of all the most promising mods ever made for Steam. Make sure to check it out at and don't forget to rate it.
jlpars75 Jun 4, 2014 @ 6:19pm 
This is a mod I always think I can do without but I always resubscribe after the first hearthfire house. Big Like!!!
coldfoxxjoe May 13, 2014 @ 4:40pm 
awesome idea!
mentilreq  [author] Apr 20, 2014 @ 8:28pm 
@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.
werewgrin Apr 20, 2014 @ 4:47pm 
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!
mentilreq  [author] Feb 21, 2014 @ 8:21am 
@HoneySuckle I was thinking about adding them early on and I just never got around to it. I think if I did make them, they would be part of a seperate mod so that I could use resources from Hearthfires without making this one dependent on another DLC.
HoneySuckle Feb 15, 2014 @ 9:34pm 
Have you thought of adding goat horn candles? the ceiling ones as well?
Illusia24 Jan 13, 2014 @ 3:49pm 
I missed this so much from Morrowind! Great addition!
Priella Jan 7, 2014 @ 2:53pm 

Activation a bit tricky:
( not really.... just don't believe what the mouse over options tell you. lol. )

Once dropped from inventory, and placed using Hold E..
It only gives the mouse over option to " take " with E action button...
Just press E.. it didnt " take " it, at all. :)

Now, the option to "Activate Candelabra" is available using the E action button, as creator said.

If you Hold E to move it again.. it will then take it back your inventory.

so just a little strange.. and everyone probably could have figured this out on their own..
But, I thought I'd offer up this little info... just in case someone thought the mod didnt work.

IIIIIIIT works great and so lovely too. n___n
Fav'd and Liked.

Thanks Man I have dawnload It : )
mentilreq  [author] Jan 7, 2014 @ 8:24am 
@skyrimlord17 ratchet335 No DLC is required for this mod. I do have another mod that adds additional lights that requires Dragonborn Here.
Tamazicht Jan 7, 2014 @ 8:20am 
do I need a DLC ?
WickedSP00N Jan 7, 2014 @ 2:28am 
This mod is great. So simple, adds immense amounts of atmosphere, thank you for your work!
eddyhaze Nov 28, 2013 @ 8:07am 
about time someyone made this!
bigwhitehound Oct 14, 2013 @ 4:57pm 
Need more statues please.
The Master of Bored Sep 15, 2013 @ 7:20pm 
how do you turn on the mara statu, and could you make more divine based lights
KaptainKrunk Sep 8, 2013 @ 9:15am 
Love it. A necessity if you have interior darkness mods. Thanks much!
Vistorri Aug 29, 2013 @ 10:03pm 
Now THIS is what was missing in Skyrim that made Morrowind player homes so good!
mentilreq  [author] Aug 8, 2013 @ 3:56pm 
To anyone interested I posted instructions on how to increase the brightness of the candles on the Skyrim Nexus Click Here []
mentilreq  [author] Jul 26, 2013 @ 4:28pm 
@AvatarOfWar I have seen several others asking for additional recipes also, so I will be adding them as soon as I can. I have also been working on adding functional shrines to the shrine base.
AvatarOfWar Jul 24, 2013 @ 8:13pm 
Possibility of adding more recipes for ordinary candles? Troll fat is in short supply. You can even use existing items in the game: beehive husks and any animal fat (mammoth snouts, goat legs, venison; all the raw uncooked stuff)
carolann0922 Jul 20, 2013 @ 6:54am 
LOVE THIS MOD!! It brings so much more to my game! Thanks bunches!! xxooxx
Denaturat Jul 3, 2013 @ 11:02am 
Great mod. I also hope you will add new light colors.
mentilreq  [author] Jun 26, 2013 @ 1:51pm 
@carolann0922 It would work with the scripts already in place for the candles, only the models have to be made first. I could look later at what is already in the Creation Kit, I'm not very good at modeling.
carolann0922 Jun 26, 2013 @ 1:26am 
Is it possible to make the fire bowl type light besides the candle lights and lanterns, or is that an entirely different coding/programming?
m8rt1n Jun 21, 2013 @ 3:16pm 
Just the thing I was looking for to brighten up my houses. I might as well be living in a cave if I didn't have this mod.
mentilreq  [author] Jun 15, 2013 @ 7:07pm 
To anyone interested I posted a seperate mod with craftable Torch Sconces (...stands?)
Torch Sconces
Gemenai Jun 15, 2013 @ 3:06pm 
okay so there is a tiny "light of hope" to get more Lanterns and Candles^^
mentilreq  [author] Jun 6, 2013 @ 10:43am 
@Roscaria I've been thinking about adding some more lights, I've just been stuck on Borderlands 2 and New Vegas for awhile.
Roscaria Jun 6, 2013 @ 1:58am 
Void salts for the black light/flames?
Roscaria Jun 6, 2013 @ 1:57am 
I LOVED the Mara statue with light. Is it possible to get a version of it without the clunky wooden stand, so it can fit on a bench etc?
Also would it be possible to have versions with red light (Fire salts) and Black light/flames (for the necromancers amongst us)?
