https://gamebanana.com/gamefiles/9921

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...

SPECIAL THANKS:

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

    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.

    Hey, I tried the new mod with the Darker nights added. It still crashes at the stables with the lantern. I haven't tested with no mods yet.

    I have been playing with the modified graphics packs to give my nights to look dark, so your darker nights in addition to mine, seems to have no effect on my night time aesthetic at all, there's no visible difference. Except the light brightness is literally halved compared to the previous aio mod without darker nights. The previous version looked much better but the new version has half the light brightness compared to there being no mod.

    Of course I have to test this out with my graphical additions turned off because changing lighting does weird things in this game. So darker nights might act completely differently with my enhancements off.

    Hey, I tried the new all in one mod. I tried the stand alone lantern mod before where you buy the lantern, where it's separate to the torch, but before entering a stable area where you could buy the lantern, it would crash.

    So this time I was expecting it to be fixed (and I think you did try to fix it) but it crashed again exactly the same way. A certain proximity to the stable and Cemu closes itself. Other stables are fine.

    On the bright side though, the brighter lights are working for me. The stand alone brighter lights never worked for me for some reason. I did some testing by using the older Torch/Lantern Replacement mod with the All in One mod and there is a huge difference. I took nice before and afters if you want them.

    Idk... I'll try turning off mods and check it on it's own, but I did that before with the last mod.

    Amazing mod. What would I need to be looking at to lower the lantern brightness further?

    Bro, i really like this mod but this '' Brighter Lights '' 
    this new combination make my game crash whenever I go to Kara Kara Bazar or some Stable in the game or anywhere with a reasonable amount of light source.
     Could you add a version without this' Brighter Lights'' ?

    Edit: And also for some reason, I'm going to shoppers but the Lantern just doesn't show up on beedle sales ...

    The new combination seems to make me crash near the stables. Still testing - Graphics pack.

    The BCML file shoots up an error when installing. It shows up in the list though. Causes infinite loading screen

    Very much looking forward to the Darker Nights mod!

    On a different note, do anyone know of a good guide to merge bootup.pack files?
    This clashes with FirstPersonQuestDialogs and Hyrule Rebalance V5 (weapon scaling).

    I really must have gotten used to CG's darker preset because, wow, the light on the ground under the lantern is blinding. I appreciate the radius increase, but the lantern equipped is hard to look at. Do you think you could make versions with a variation in brightness?
