SURVIVAL OF THE WILD is the new version of this mod. It includes Wearable Lantern and Brighter Lights mods as well as darker nights now! get it at...

Presents: Wearable Lantern, Brighter Lights & Darker Nights.

This mod adds a functioning, equipable, and wearable lantern. Also, adds all lights in the game to be brighter and nights to be darker for a more atmospheric experience.

* Is always lit except when in water or raining and extreme weather.

* Is a functioning light source with a brighter light radius than vanilla.

* Stays lit when sheathed on links belt.

      The Lantern is it's own item, it does not replace the torch or anything in the game, it does no fire damage, it is a light source only. Can be bought from Beedle's shop in the following locations...

* Kara Kara Bazaar

* Lakeside Stable

* South Akkala Stable

* Rito Stable

Project Scope:

This mod is a small part of the Survival of the Wild project. A mod project focused around turning BOTW into a hardcore survival game. Darker nights, more dangerous weather,  a hunger system, no fast travel, revamped save system, a storage chest etc etc...


MelonSpeedruns for the icon & Polarbunny for the UI edits! NiceneNerd, Zeikken and CEObrainz for help with the stand alone version. Thanks guys!

    I really like this mod. But whats up with the distant blurriness? Like things in the distance, such as hyrule castle. death mountain, divine beasts, everything at a distance is all blurry. i disable the mod and go back to vanilla and its fine. I wouldnt have a problem if things were slightly blurry, but not this blurry

    Can you upload a BCML version with just brighter lights + lantern please? That would be awesome! my current BOTW setup could benefit from that, DN makes my game almost pitch black at night :O

    There seems to be a weird graphical bug when attempting to use runes at night with this mod.

    The 'highlight' usually seen around objects (like metal objects using magnesis, or bodies of water with cryonis) are completely gone during nighttime. They show up fine during the day, though.

    This issue started happening to me after brighter lights/darker nights was merged with this mod. Is there a workaround?

    It's possible to buy the lantern in one stable next to the Great Plateau? Like one in the Central Hyrule, or Highland Stable?

    Is it possible to get this mod to work with the Linkle mod?  Every time I approach a stable where the lanterns are sold, the game crashes if I have Linkle mod on.
