A function included in the GECK version 220.127.116.11.
EquipItem forces an actor to equip an item.
Player.EquipItem HuntingRifle 0 1
- If NoUnequipFlag = 1, actor (including the player) will be unable to unequip the item. Once the item is unequipped with the UnequipItem function, the item can be equipped and unequipped as normal.
- If HideEquipMessage = 1, the item equipped message will be hidden from the player.
- In the case that the player has multiples of the specified item, it would appear that the item of lowest condition is the one equipped. If EquipItem is called on the same actor and in the same frame as AddItem or AddItemHealthPercent, however, the last item added is equipped instead.
- Ingestibles can be passed as the item to equip, resulting in the actor consuming the indicated item as normal, provided they have at least one in their inventory. The item is treated as though it were used normally, e.g. effects for food and aid items will scale with the player's Survival and Medicine skills respectively, and there is a possibility the player can become addicted if they use an addictive substance.
