About this mod

Automatically equip a headgear when you draw your weapon and automatically unequip it when you sheath.

Permissions and credits
Inspired by track1044's Auto-Equip - With Customization, I was using that for a while until I realized all I wanted was the helmet functionality. Search around a while but couldn't find any, so decided to wrote this little mod myself. Honestly surprised such a simple mod don't exists already.

  1. Like any other mod, use a mod manager or drop into data folder

Updating from older version:
  1. Just overwrite, no need to uninstall
  2. Note however, on update, the mod cleans out all previous headgear settings, this is for consistency
  3. So just go into MCM again and set your combat headgear(s)

How to use:
  1. Wait for MCM menu to appear
  2. Equip the helm you want to equip in combat
  3. Go into MCM and set it as combat headgear
  4. Now when drawing your weapon, that headgear will be equipped if not already.
  5. When sheathing, any headgear (on hair slot) will be unequipped.
  6. Optonally set a non-combat headgear (a hair wig for example), which will gets equipped when sheathing.
  7. or
  8. Turn on the option to remember what was equipped before drawing your weapon, once the weapon is put away, what you had on before weapon draw will be re-equipped

  1. Go into MCM and choose the uninstall option
  2. Make sure the auto equipping functionality stopped
  3. Save
  4. Quit and uninstall mod

Change Log:
  • Version 1.1
  • Added equip unequipped option
  • Version 2.0
  • Works with circlets along with headgear now

  1. How's performance? This is a extremely light mod that only adds a tiny script that's ran on weapon draw or sheath. I personally ran 200+ modded skyrim with fps hoovering around 30, so performance is a big deal to me.
  2. Difference between this mod and Auto Unequip Helmet?
  • This mod don't just unequip, it can equip back another piece, for example a rain hood for Frostfall
  • It relies on the player to set a combat helmet / circlet, and doesn't try to guess it, (which it sometimes gets wrong)
  • It doesn't run on onEquip, onEquip is a event that's already being heavily used by many combat mods and Requiem already
