    This may have already been brought up, but the position of the glowing orb a few feet in front of your head is problematic. You notice this especially when trying to decorate. The orb disappears into walls and furniture, eliminating its value.

    Can we change the orb so it's directly above your head?

    I second this. Also anyone who has experience with using light sources in dark should know, that you never want to place them in front of you, as you do not see anything but the lightsource then.

    ...Or at least that's something "physical" and doesn't overlap with other objects?

    Having it in front of you gives a better light radius and visibility. But if you stare directly at a wall, you automatically "turn off the light"!

    They are a nuisance when fighting something and it hovers in front and blocks your view I wish there was a different lightsource equally available -- perhaps not a hovering ball, just a nice glowing light that encircles your character. And a little brighter and wider, please, so as to more easily follow paths in the dark. I often have to just stand in place or become utterly lost. I know others have a different experience than that--I don't know why. :)

    Or a steampunk version of the Mining Helmet from 7 Days to Die. Click on, click off...nice beam of light for the path in front of you.

    I like the aura idea versus an illusionary light source.
