Lantern mod

Requires: Forge

Works in: SP, LAN, MP

Have you ever thought it would be great to have carryable source of light? Well, now you can make one!

Lantern was originally made by me as part of CaveGen mod, but I decided to make it as separate mod for those who would like to have Lantern but don't like my CaveGen mod.

Note: This mod also works as plugin for my CaveGen mod. That means you can use it alone, but when you install it with CaveGen, you will be able to use Glow shard from CaveGen mod to create Lantern too.

Recipe for crafting Lantern. Note: You can change the glowstone dust into other item in your config file. But if you are playing on server, only server recipe will work.


Recipe for crafting Lantern with Glow Shard (only with CaveGen mod installed)



You can carry the lantern around.

Or place it on ground/hang it from ceiling (it requires solid block under or over itself). The Lantern will be rotated towards you when you place it down. lantern2

If you fly with lantern equipped the light will not update as fast as you travel, resulting in occasional spots of light in your trail. These will disappear if you walk over them or you load your world again. They won't cause any trouble.
