Placed Lanterns (in their on and off states, except the bottled bugs). Click or tap the image to view a summary of each row.

A Lantern is a small light source that hangs from ceilings (the underside of blocks). They occupy less space than a Chandelier, making them ideal for smaller spaces. Lanterns can be toggled on and off via wires, except for Firefly in a Bottle and Lightning Bug in a Bottle.

The Heart Lantern is a variant that additionally provides players standing within about 48 tiles with extra health regeneration, which stacks with the Campfires buff. Toggling the Heart Lantern off will only deactivate the light source, and not the buff.

The Star in a Bottle similarly adds a mana regeneration buff.

The Skull Lantern and Jack 'O Lantern, while being named Lanterns, are not like the rest of the lanterns in that they need to be placed on a flat surface.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Unlike the others, the Chinese Lantern can be placed underwater.
  • The Chinese Lantern is 2 wide x 2 high and the Large Dynasty Lantern is 3 wide x 3 high.
  • Lanterns cannot be placed on blocks toggled by actuators, and will pop off if the block they are hanging off of is toggled by one.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The character on the Chinese Lantern means "open" or "modified" and is pronounced kāi.
