For my quest, I would very much like a script which makes it so when a lantern (red candle) is equipped it makes a transparent circle around link on layer 5/6 (so it looks like a light around link and follows him around (or possibly a better way of making a circle of light in darkness).
(if this is even possible)

If you don't mind the area around the circle being pitch black, it's easy. The header stdExtra.zh has a function specifically for that.

If you want the surrounding area to be translucent...you will need to wait for 2.54, or some other future ZC build. That already works in the betas, but I doubt you'd want to use those for a full quest, just for this one effect.

(Dimentio OTOH, clearly does, and can show you some footage of a quest with it.)

It's probably the most-requested drawing feature, and this 'twas the first thing that we added. Doing it (translucent darkness + lighting effects) in 2.50.2 is possible, but painfully terrible to implement, and even then, it isn't all that fantastic.

I don't really care if its pitch black or not.

What, you mean this? :P
This super swag dark room is only possible in 2.54 betas, and I don't have a version that is user-friendly yet. If you want Dark room scripts on 2.50.2 or later, try the submission linked above.
