Awards and Features
----------------------------------


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.

- SKSE is now required as it fixes all the bugs with torches not dropping for certain equipment types.

*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.
