NPCs can be equipped with items similarly to characters. In order to be equipped
with items, NPCs must be designated with a Fitout and ordered to pick up items.
A fitout is a list of item types to be equipped by an NPC. A fitout can designate
multiple items for a slot, in that case any of the items will be chosen.
NPC Fitouts are linked to inventory tags. An NPC can be assigned
to one or more fitouts, where multiple fitouts are combined, an NPC will chose any
items from any assigned fitouts.
On the party screen, NPCs can be ordered to drop or pickup items, if you have the
ability to manage them.
An NPC can be ordered to drop all items it is carrying. This will disregard any
fitouts and unconditionally empty the NPCs slots.
An NPC ordered to drop and pickup items will drop any items that do not match
the assigned fitouts. The NPC will then attempt to pickup any items that match
When picking up items, NPCs are able to rummage through all crates and containers
within the room looking for items that match their fitout.
An NPC ordered to pickup only will attempt to fill any slots in its assigned
fitouts that are empty. If it has equipped any items that are not included in
assigned fitouts these items will not be dropped.
