Ok so after some testing we sound out Im using 1.0.1 version of the mod and not the latest 1.0.2 where the Dungeon fireplaces are already disabled thus this "bug" cant manifest. My bad. Sorry for making a fuss about it. Should have checked Im using the latest version before making the report :oops:

Thanks for cooperation and a great mod :lol:

was playing around with the lighting settings and got something i liked, but noticed some torches are a bit funky.
Spoiler!

just what i was wanting. really important if you want to play with darker lighting. the default torches not making any light was really awkward looking and stood out. thanks a ton for this!

This mod is conflicting with Hand painted Replacement somehow..
The skull candles on the ground don't work when both are enabled.
I tracked it down to these two, changed load order etc, same thing..

I think he enabled the Torches in the last few updates ( he added 3D skull torches), but they're the standing skull torches, not the ones on the ground maybe that has something to do with it, maybe not...

All I know is I tested it for a bit and I came up with these two.

I downloaded and opened it fine right now. Either something's wrong with your download instance or your WinRAR ;)

I can confirm this and you can get examples all over Privateer's Hold. I believe it has to do something with the scripts in IIL, because it even turns off lights that are not even changed by Hand Painted Models. There are several examples to be found when using IIL and HPM together. First is the candle light in the first long hallway, in the corner right after the first room with the Imp. This has a light that is not replaced by HPM and the light is turned off when ILL and HPM are used together. This is why I think this bug is caused by the scripting in IIL. Also, the other Imp room with the circle of skull candles and the podium that activates the bookshelf. There is no light where the candle lit skulls are. Final missing light is the short hallway the leads the room with the Skeleton just past the Exit Room. The large magical looking light that is right next the the entrance is not emitting any light with both mods activated together.

Now, If I disable "dungeon lights" in the IIL settings the lights that are off come back again. The other reason why I believe it's the scripting that is to blame. These bugs don't break the game, but it's a big enough issue that I just disable the dungeons lights in the IIL settings and deal with the vanilla lighting in the dungeons. So far I haven't seen any issues with other interiors or outdoor lighting and I love the fireplace lighting and lighting in building interiors, which is why I still use this mod. Only the Dungeons seem to be broken in parts.

Yes, the file is indeed fine. That said I had the exact same issue for some reason, using 7-Zip. I just used extract.me website to convert the file to zip and it worked fine.
