– I did some testing and it seems to be ok for me: My load order:HugsLibAnimal GearAnimal Gear BasicAnimal LogicGiddy-up! CoreGiddy-up! CaravanGiddy-up! Ride and RollGiddy-up! Battle Mounts(With the grizly and polar bear)Otherwise you could test it with a new game and prepare carefully to quickly have a bear and armor (maybe there is something with the save).
thanks for replies. I’ll parse most of this once I’m back from classes and continue proper work then. The protection from the armor in question neither shows up on gear-tab nor actually protects the Drake when shot; I made sure it wasn’t something finicky with the animal itself by giving it natural armor and taking a few shots. I’ll try putting the mod up online now for testing.
– I had another look at it: You need to have to have the matching tags inside the def of the animal – for example:—Body————— Torso——You could just edit the animal def if you just mod this for yourself – but a better way is to patch it with you mod, like I do for the normal animals ‘ModsAnimalGearPatchesBodies_Animal_Quadruped.xml’ for example (patching is a bit more advanced but you should be able to copy what I am doing mostly) the first ‘PatchOperationSequence’ checks if the ” is on the body-part and if not adds it the ‘PatchOperationAdd’ adds ‘Torso’ to the body-parts
