Hello! I've been using the wearable lantern mod (https://www.nexusmod...tab=description) for a while, but it's been coming into conflict with several others as of late, which sparked this interest. Is there a mod(or, possibly, a simple bit of coding? I am not very good with that sort of thing, but I'm willing to try anything!) that simply allows me to change what equipment slot an item takes up? For example, this and an earring mod I use both take up Slot 55, even though they're on different parts of the character, and I don't have any equipment for Slot 60. Is there something that could be done to keep this mod the same, just..... change that number? Any help is greatly appreciated!

There are three locations which determine what slot(s) an item uses:

1) NIF file -- must have a slot assigned or it will not appear on the character

2) Armor record -- can have multiple slots assigned, must include slot used in NIF file

3) Armor addon record -- can have multiple slots assigned, must include slot used in NIF file


Due to this 3 part slot assignment, there can be no clean way for a mod to do this at run time in the game.  Not without multiple NIF files and multiple armor and armor addon records all ready to be swapped out when a user selects a different slot.  Too much work for little gain.


That said, an end user can tweak the slots to fit their own game.

This wiki page goes into more detail on how to change the assigned slot(s) in each location.
