Lanterns can be naturally generated in villages, wizard towers, and other places. They are the best source of light for players who are mid-game and already have a Nether Portal. Unlike regular torches, they do not ever run out of fuel.
CraftingEditLanterns can be easily crafted, as long as you have glowstone. They may be a bit expensive, but they don't burn out. And besides, this mod extends the game and adds more items, so mid-game in this mod could be end-game in vanilla Minecraft. This can also be found in chests, houses in NPC Village, and abandoned house deep in the jungle. This previous photo posted was wrong so It's now replaced to the right one.
Unlike regular torches, Lanterns require a 3x3 crafting space to make.
