What is Lantern Mod
Lantern Mod simply adds lanterns to your Minecraft world. Think torches cannot give you enough lights? Or they are so static that you can only place one place and cannot carry it along to the deep cave? Or just simply you want to have another option besides torches, for aesthetic purpose, for example? Then Lantern Mod is here for the taken.
Lantern Mod was first a part of CaveGen Mod but then it was separated into two single mod for particular liking of Minecraft players. The mod still of course can be used as a plugin for CaveGen Mod. That means you can use this mod 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.

Notes: 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.
