Auto Unequip Ammo

IMPORTANT: This mod requires Dawnguard. If you don't have Dawnguard get this version instead:
If you already use the other version: "Auto Unequip Arrows" mod then follow these steps to make clean save before upgrading:
1. Load the save you want to make clean.
2. Open console and type: StopQuest AUA
3. Close console and save the game.
- repeat steps 1 to 3 for all saves you want to make clean.
4. Uninstall Auto Unequp Arrows and unsubscribe from it.
5. Install this version which is now called Auto Unequip Ammo.

This mod will automatically unequip ammo when ranged weapon is unequipped and equip the same ammo back when you equip the ranged weapon again. Equipped Arrows and Bolts are remembered separately so they can be restored when using corresponding ranged weapon type. Because there is no way to distinguish arrows from bolts via script I had to make pre-defined classification.
If you equip custom ammo that cannot be recongized by the mod a pop-up will appear for you to classify them.
Choose one of 3 classes when asked:
1. Arrows - Long pointed sticks.
2. Bolts - Short pointed sticks.
3. Other - Selecting this class will ignore the ammo and will not auto-equip it back but it will still be auto-unequipped when you unequip ranged weapon.

If you make a classification mistake or wish to clear all custom arrows from the class list you can trigger the purge procedure by equipping the same ammo 5 times in a row rapidly.

If you uninstall any of the mods that add the custom ammo and that ammo is already added to the list, this mod will automatically purge the whole list as soon as you load the game without the mod that adds this new ammo.

- No known incompatibilities.

1. Type in console (StopQuest AUA).
2. Save the game.
3. Uninstall the mod.

Changes since last version of Auto Unequip Arrows:
- Complete rewrite and new mod name.
- Added Dawnguard support for crossbows/bolts.
- Added support for multiple followers from 3 most popular mods EFF, UFO and AFT (25 followers max).
- Improved compatibility to work with any bound weapon.
- Minor performance tweaks.

Incredibly useful utility. Seamless. I forget I even have it on, and only miss it if for some reason I turn it off.
