Here is the Flashlight and Battery as pickable items. These are the items I use in White Night.

These two files are entities, and specifically item types.
so they go in Entities/Items


Well, now that we have flashlight, we want to have batteries too! I thought it'd be harder to do this, but it turned out easier than I expected. Simply, I took the Penumbra: Black Plague battery and made it LampOil item. It's same as the normal LampOil item in terms of quantity it adds. It has its inventory image too.

You have to add two new lines to Inventory category of your base_english.lang file though:

xml code:
<Entry Name="ItemName_Battery">Battery</Entry>
<Entry Name="ItemDesc_Battery">Battery for flashlight.</Entry>


Well, you should pick up flashlight as lantern item and show flashlight in your inventory.

I made DIGIByte's flashlight as a pickable item and once you pick it you have flashlight to light both in your hands and in your inventory. Inventory image is from Penumbra: Black Plague. This flashlight is only an item and different from actual flashlight you hold. Like lantern item and lantern you hold.

You have to add two new lines to Inventory category of your base_english.lang file though: 

xml code:
<Entry Name="ItemDesc_Flashlight">The flashlight will light up dark places. When in game press $ButLantern to turn it on.</Entry>
<Entry Name="ItemName_Flashlight">Flashlight</Entry>

You need to give respective credits to be able to use this props.

I already shared this on forum long time ago and I felt like putting here too. This might encourage rest of the modders to build some modern day mods.

These are just items. When you pick up the flashlight as an item, you can switch on and off what you have as lantern object. In vanilla game, that would be lantern. In full conversions, it depends what you have installed. In my case, it is a flashlight.

This doesn't replace your lantern and oil items. These are new items and you need to use them in your level editor to make new custom stories or mods.

i've put the item_batteries and item_flashlight in the entities/item, and used it in level editor.
when i was trying the custom story with the battery and flashlight, i could pick them up, but it didn't had a name, and when i equiped it,it looked like the flashlight in the inventory but it looked like a lantern in my hand.
also i had oil instead of baterries, but it still looked like batteries IN MY INVENTORY!!
plz help figure this out.

Is there any way to replace lantern without making it full conversion or changing the original lantern files? Or, is there a way to have more kinds of lantern in one custom story?

These are only pickable items, when I press F, normal lantern appears.

Tanshaydar Sep 21 2013, 12:15pm replied:

Without a full conversion there is not much you can change.
And yes, these are only pickable itesm AS the description and title indicates so.

I have easily covered the Original Lantern and Oil files, it is extremely easy.

I don't want many people asking me how, It's so simple and Obvious what you're meant to do.
