I've never used this blasted thing for the sole reason of it not being usable as decoration. Thank you for making me want to use some EAxis item!

The lamp will be brought to you by the gypsy and can only be used 3 times after which it will vanish. 14 days after that, you again have the chance to recieve another lamp.

or you can get Black_Spirit's Buyable freetime Genie Lamp Mod

I was having problems finding the lamp too, so I used Black_Spirit's mod, the whole only being able to put it on the floor thing was annoying. Thanks for this.

Thanks. When I got freetime, I wanted to make a community lot with a bunch of genie lamps all on tables... then I found out I couldn't do that. I surf on mts2, and I find your mod.
Thank youuuu.

Thanks! It's always a bother when I realise I can't put the lamp tidily on a table to use later.
