How to change pawns priority on clothes they where.
« on: April 28, 2021, 05:33:25 PM »

So I’m trying to figure out why pawns are choosing worse items over the bdus clothing I had commissioned. The person who made the mod isn’t too sure either as they haven’t really delved into clothing. Is there a list of stats that makes pawn choose clothing they will wear, I thought it was based on quality but my pawns chose poor cloth pants with 46% hit points over full normal bdus made from cloth.

From my expierience i would say protection.
When these 46% got better armor rating then the new cloth one, they would prefer it. Even when it is tainted.

It is your work to adjust/create a clothing policy that pawn's don't wear tainted and below 50% stuff and no parka when you are in a hot biome.

so the person who made the mod tried upping the protection stat up to 100% and pawns are still choosing clothing that is worse. I commissioned the mod, just trying to help and fix the issue with the mod maker. So it is a bit of back and forth.

No what i explained is vanilla behavior, you didn't named or mention any mod.
The only mod i know which change this behavior is Outfitter

that's my bad, was late when I read your post, https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2468535685 is the mod that I commissioned but I think what your saying is even if an outfit is 100% hitpoints and has better stats pawns will choose whatever suits them even if its worse than something else? or am I misreading that, I thought pawns would choose the better clothing, even if it was from the same material?

Pawn's choose appareal based on their protection value not on their quality or HP's.
When you drop a 10% tainted normal power armor they will prefer it then their cloth stuff.

The mod you mention is a plain XML mod and don't change anything how pawn's choose their clothes.
