Neat. This only works with torchbugs, luna moths, and glowing mushrooms though, right? I wish you could display more stuff in the jars. Like daedra hearts, giant's toes, other plants etc. but it's still pretty cool all the same.

OMG I have the 101 bugs mod, that would be awesome tro have some of them
裴瑛Lina Jul 30, 2014 @ 10:38pm 
make these able to contain other other alch ingredients or be compatable with the 101bugs mod so we could put those bugs on display in jars and you'd have one heck of an epic collection/decoration mod. The work and time involved to do so might not be worth it though :P

Still awsome mod

Heya – Just out of courtesy, letting you know I’ve added this awesome Mod of yours to my Collection, “Mods That Enhanced My Early Skyrim Immersion.” Thank you for making this game even better! Fayde1 :)

Coooool! Works with Torchbug and Glowing Mushie so far.
Yep, Malachite to Forge the Jars.
I dropped the jar from inventory, the options came up for adding stuffage. I'm using them as lights, love the effect and it makes more sense than having strange unknown light sources in this environment.
As promised, the bits'n'pieces were returned to my inventory when I made it a light.
Excellent mod so far - does what's promised and enhances my gameplay.
Thanks mentilreq for this! :)

Love this mod, I put it in a little collection a while back and forgot to mention to you, thought you might like to know ;) maybe lend your support.
The more links the better I recon.
With compliments.

I really like this mod. It is really good but I had started to decorate my cellar with them because it was really dark and I put a luna moth jar down and it disappeared . The light was still there but I couldn't see the jar or the moth. Could you please fix this. Also anyone who needs to know where malachite is there is a mine full of it at Kynesgrove (Kyensgrove is just below Windhelm on the map) and there is a bit on the top of the throat of the world.

i have only found 2 jars so i might like this mod ! =)
Dresden69 Jan 9, 2014 @ 4:35am 
I can make the jars, but how do you add the ingredient/item to them?
dh Jan 5, 2014 @ 1:03pm 
Is it just the torchbug. luna moth and mushroom that appear in the jar when you add it? I tried another alchemy ingredient and it stored it in the jar but the jar still appeared empty. I see several people asking for more graphics like fish, hearts and butterflies so I am guessing that not many items have an actual graphic once placed in the container.

@mentilreq
Malachite, for me, appears to be damned near impossible to locate. Once I locate it though, Im sure i will have all sorts of fun with your mod. Quick question, Would you be able to make a Hearthfire edition of this where it uses glass instead of malachite? Doing so would allow me to make the jars that much faster. If you dont have Hearthfire, I may be able to work out a quick fix and release a Hearthfire version for you, if you are interested.

Love this mod great way to add extra storage to houses that are lacking in storage containers.

dont worry i wasnt using malachite i was using moonstone my mistake
[TGK] That Funts Cucked Aug 31, 2013 @ 3:38pm 
i was just wondering what smithing lv is needed to create the jars beacuse i cant find them under misc at my current lv
mentilreq  [author] Jul 27, 2013 @ 2:36pm 
Should be simple enough.
indiana650 Jul 27, 2013 @ 2:27pm 
Sorry, I guess I misled you there......
What I meant was that yes, I'd like to create something with an open top, like a basket or bucket, but looks like your jars.
mentilreq  [author] Jul 27, 2013 @ 8:00am 
@indiana650 If you are just looking for a way to carry alot of items in your inventory, a friend of mine made this Vidani's Bag of Holding. I thought about doing something similar with the jars, however, whenever a new one is created a hidden container would also have to be created and I am afraid all the additional references would create save game bloat if they are not properly cleaned up when necessary.
indiana650 Jul 27, 2013 @ 4:31am 
yes, something with an open top as since the skeevers and giant bugs aren't items I can't put them in the jars....although, with that said, I can carry all my inventory in just one jar :)
mentilreq  [author] Jul 26, 2013 @ 4:33pm 
@indiana650 Not sure what you mean by "act as a bucket". Do you mean like a container (chest, drawers, barrel), or an open top to place items?
indiana650 Jul 24, 2013 @ 5:47pm 
How can I modify this (please) so that it acts as a bucket? A skeever would look great in a jar :)
mentilreq  [author] May 7, 2013 @ 8:38am 
@ Lady Zoner At the forge look under "Misc" to craft an empty jar. Then add either a Glowing Mushroom, Torchbug, or Luna Moth Wing to make them into a light. They also work as a portable container.
Lady Zoner May 7, 2013 @ 8:36am 
Where is the option to craft them under Smithing? What category?
Vidani81 Apr 24, 2013 @ 6:11pm 
When typing in the console, you should type Empty, and you will get the listing. Glad to see you got it to work, this mod is awesome! Hope that helps.
Ripyu Anuwan Apr 24, 2013 @ 12:03am 
Mentilreq- thanks for your help. Interestingly, when I typed "help jar", there were no matches in the console help list; lots of help for "jarls" and characters with "jar" in their name. However, the "MISC" category appeared on the forge- which wasn't there before. Not that I'm worried about that- the lights are beautiful, and the containers are just what I was looking for. Thanks again.
mentilreq  [author] Apr 23, 2013 @ 7:30pm 
@Ripyu Anuwan If I am understanding you correctly you are trying to add the empty jars in the console? If so open the console and type "help jar" without the quotes. What you are looking for is a misc item called "Empty Jar" there will be two listed, you need the first one (Highest in the list). There are two because Skyrim has a weird bug where things dropped from your inventory stay referenced where you dropped them no matter where you move it.
Ripyu Anuwan Apr 23, 2013 @ 10:39am 
I'm having trouble crafting these babies. I've tried the console commands Forge & -Forge (with and without "Empty Jar", (as per your directions to Obama Bin Laden) but they aren't recognized. What's up? Thanks.
ElderGamer1 Apr 22, 2013 @ 12:16pm 
I just read in a Vampire Overhaul about needing these Jars...Yours really look very good...Fav'd n Thumbs Up!
stmst1 Apr 21, 2013 @ 7:31am 
nice
Midnight Apr 21, 2013 @ 5:35am 
A nice work! Could you also upload the mod at Scharesoft?
Thanks.
NightHawk Apr 20, 2013 @ 5:54am 
nice mod. good work!
lehmaennl1805 Apr 20, 2013 @ 5:11am 
Thanks for your impressive work! Could you also upload the mod at Nexus?
〠 LIMUNADE 人 Apr 20, 2013 @ 3:01am 
Thx for this mod.
Vliegendetapir Apr 19, 2013 @ 2:38pm 
nice
usgonzo Apr 19, 2013 @ 12:36pm 
please add more things like a heart (human =+dedcric)
☣ Jtktomb ☣ Apr 19, 2013 @ 11:06am 
nice very good for the house decoration !!!
hinesassociates Apr 18, 2013 @ 6:07pm 
I agree with @The Ranger Pharaoh please contact Chesko and get these to work with his wearable lanterns mod. That would be awesome. I have been thinking ever since I found that mod that a lunar moth would be cool. Also I like the glowing mushroom idea. Anyway cool mod.
~Nekonini_Gumi-chan~ Apr 18, 2013 @ 5:31pm 
Hi, I really like the mod and I was wondering if you could add more creatures to the jars, like normal ones. -Butterflys, Bee's, Fish, etc- But not with light, like, just for company or something. I'd really like a pet fish that I can carry around without it dying on me like they always do D: But anyways, its a really nice mod -Like I said- but could you add more specimen? Thanks.
The Dark Ranger Apr 18, 2013 @ 2:47pm 
Please contact chesko and get these added into wearable lanterns these could be lanterns the mages use or something. It is just too small of a mod for me to download alone.
mentilreq  [author] Apr 18, 2013 @ 1:52pm 
@escaped_psycho Not at the moment, I plan on adding that very soon though.
Escaped Psycho Apr 18, 2013 @ 12:06pm 
Is there a way to pick the jar's back up if you're using them as containers?
mentilreq  [author] Apr 18, 2013 @ 10:21am 
@Obama Bin Laden -Forge and "Empty Jar" at the forge using Refined Malachite, then add either; a Torchbug Thorax, Luna Moth Wing, or a Glowing Mushroom to the jar using it like a standard container. When you add one of the above you will be prompted to either store the item or create a "Light".
sıks Apr 18, 2013 @ 10:09am 
Help, am i really dumb or i just don't know how to put these things into a jar? do you have to have a empty jar and one of the specimens or what?
BigBad Apr 17, 2013 @ 6:20pm 
looks good
Sigill Apr 17, 2013 @ 3:12pm 
Good news - the jars have re-appeared after loading my save & are now scattered around Heljarchen Hall - CHEERS :)
ƒenrir Apr 17, 2013 @ 12:46pm 
its the little things that make skyrim so great ^_^ good job mentilreq
mentilreq  [author] Apr 17, 2013 @ 12:27pm 
@mrd.relish just click on it with the "A" button like any other container and it will open.
