SM Drop Lit Torches
Created By the Strategy Master
----------------------------------------------
This mod allows you to drop lit torches to the ground when you can't spare a hand to hold it.

When you switch from a torch to another weapon/spell/shield the previously equipped torch will be dropped to the floor.

If you pick up the torch on the ground without a weapon in your left hand or with no weapons drawn and you are not sneaking you will automatically re-equip the torch.

You can also manually drop a torch from your inventory and you will drop a lit torch (this only works when dropping a single torch)

When you pick up a torch for the first time a new lesser power called Hotkey Torch will be added.

When you equip this power the following will occur:
- If you have a weapon in your left hand and you are in combat you will drop a torch to the ground.
- If you already have a torch equipped it will re-equip your previous item in your left hand (dropping the torch if nessecary)
- Otherwise you will just equip a torch.

You can also use the hotkey torch in the favourites menu. This is better than favouriting a torch because it will not be removed when you run out of torches.

Prerequisites
----------------------------------------------
SKSE must be installed http://skse.silverlock.org

Notes
----------------------------------------------
-This mod should work on all carriable light sources or mods that add new torches etc.

Uninstall
----------------------------------------------
To cleanly uninstall the mod, in game enter into the skyrim console

set DropLitTorchUninstall to 1

And wait for the confirmation message before saving and disabling the mod


Version History
----------------------------------------------
v3.0
- SKSE is now required as it fixes all the bugs with torches not dropping for certain equipment types.
- Fixed issue where right handed weapons caused torches to drop in certain situations.
- Added cleaner uninstall option
- You no longer need weapons drawn when switching to a weapon to drop a torch. The check for weapons drawn was unreliable in certain animation events.
- Hotkey torch behavior changed:
*If you have a weapon in your left hand and you are in combat you will drop a torch to the ground.
*If you already have a torch equipped it will re-equip your previous item in your left hand (dropping the torch if nessecary)
*Otherwise you will just equip a torch.
- If you are sneaking when you pick up a torch on the ground you will not auto equip it.

The hotkey torch power's picture looks funny (completely blown up and greyed out) can this be changed?

Great mod, General! The basic function is just one more of those little things that could/should have been in the game proper. ^_^

Right major update to improve reliability

@Panbot 3000: Yeah but thats by design. Use the hotkey torch to equip the torch back in the left hand or keep your weapons drawn.

Loved this from Oblivion. My only issue is that when I equip a spell without my weapons drawn the torch gets unequipped. Still beats switching to and casting candlelight every minute though :)

Phenomenal Mod, Needs more attention from the community, makes adventuring much more convenient!

Great mod! Though it'd be pretty cool if the torches could lit oil slicks when dropped near them.

Love this mod! Great job General Kysieran, I added this to my collection. Only improvement I can suggest is have the torch die after dropped in water, thought it was odd that it can sit in a stream with no problem. Thanks!

@Ubertotle: I've added a check into 1.4 to make sure the dropped torch has the same owner as when it was in your inventory.

Nether of my torches are stolen. They where actualy taken from fallowers. It could just be a problem with my game though.
