[RELz] Lamps of Oblivion

Description
This mod adds magical lamps that give off colored light.

This is both a modder's resource and a playable plugin. To create a mod based off this one, open the Construction Set and double-click on "Lamps of Oblivion Master.esm" and click "Set as Active File", OK. Add the items from the "WorldObjects, Light, Lights, LampsOfOblivion" and save your .esp. The .esp now requires the .esm file in order to load the objects.

Although this mod was inspired by the Crystal Ball Lamps mod, it is completely independant from it and will not conflict with it.

Install
Please see the readme for details.

Incompatibility
None.

Known Issues or Bugs
Mainly game engine ones;
- Lights can shine through walls to a significant extent.
- Sometimes you have to exit and re-enter an area to see the light.
- Light is sometimes not emitted from the middle of the globes. Usually this occurs when you load the game. Exiting and entering the area usually fixes the problem, but not always. The glow maps seems off as well when this happens. Not only the lamps are affected either.

Performance-related;
- On my 4-year-old rig, framerates tend to drop 1 to 2 FPS for each light laying on the ground.
- Your milage will vary.

History
2006-10-24, 1.0 - Initial release.

Future
Might try to add objects inside the crystal balls such as a skull.

Licensing/Legal
You can do whatever you want with this mod but all I ask in return is that you give me credit if you re-package this mod.
I'd also ask to give credit to everyone listed in the Credits section.
It would be nice to know what other mods this shows up in.
