Thank you for implementing these into the game!
How to create a candle:
You create a candle by using one animal fat (whatever weight, 3 or 4kg) and use it on 0.20kg string of cloth. This will create various weight candle and all of the string and animal fat is used.
If you used a pig fat (3kg) or any other fat weighing 3kg it will create a 0.15kg candle. Deer and bull fat (4kg) or any other fat weighing 4kg it will create a 0.20kg candle. (Thanks to Wossoo for seeing the weight difference)
If you fail to create the candle, the animal fat and the string of cloth dissapear and 0.20kg of rags is left behind.
Can I paint my candle?
Apparently, you cannot paint a candle. I will definitely try this later, to be 100% sure, but for now, we can be 99% sure this is correct.
Thanks to Madt for noticing this. Both of my candles have decreased in 3 quality in about 10 minutes from 20.54ql to 17.54ql and from 14.54 to 11.54.
Candles can not be improved once made, see the first screenie for what it says when you examine them.
It also appears that the quality of fat used will determine the % chance to create the candle; and the string of cloth will determine the candle quality. It also appears that a candle's quality is no more than the quality of the string of cloth used. ( Thank you Roxana for finding that out )
Will a candle go into a candelabra?
No, a candle will not fit into a golden candelabra. Neither the 0.20kg candle or the 0.15kg candle will fit into it, and there is no option to put it in.
Thanks to wossoo for giving me the idea to try this.
Skill for candles
There is no new skill for candles; but I think it is under natural substances. Will confirm this or change it.
Confirmed; making candles improves the skill 'Natural Substances' Under Alchemy.
Animals you can obtain animal fat from:
Also note that it is possible to obtain animal fat from starving animals. I obtained pig fat this way, but either I had worse luck or it was harder than off fat or normal animals.
Also note that I have obtained animal fat from the below animals so they definitely give animal fat.
-Deers. Animal fat weight: 4kg
-Pigs. Animal fat weight: 3kg
-Bulls. Animal fat weight: 4kg
-Wild Boars (Apparently. Will confirm) Animal fat weight: kg
(Will try finding more)
Animals that do not give animal fat:
- Black wolves - do not.
- Hens - do not
- Roosters - do not
- Brown Bears - do not
- Unicorns - (Apparently) do not
- Mountain Lions - do not
- Crocodiles - do not
- Wild cats - do not
- Trolls - (Apparently) do not
- Dogs - do not
- Scorpions - do not
- Mountain Gorillas - do not
(Will find more)
Pictures of candle:
I have made a candle from deer fat and one from pig fat. They do not stack to Candle (2x) They remain in my inventory as candle and candle.
On the ground, both candles when they stack into a pile do not give off light.
Candle (1x) (lit) (Deer fat candle):
Candle (2x) (both lit) (1 Deer fat candle 1 Pig fat candle)
Candle Brightness (Between Quality)
There is no brightness difference between candle qualities.
Miscellaneous screenshots on fat and candles:
Some Animals I killed trying to find out which gave fat.
The previous image but with one new animal, guess which one?
The previous image again but with a new face, I wonder which one it could be....
