  • This is to retrieve the nif file of the equipped model on an actor. Use GetModelPath - Armor to retrieve the nif file of the armor as it appears on the ground.
  • Remember that this function returns string values from ArmorAddon objects, not from Armor objects. You can use GetNthArmorAddon on Armor objects to quickly retrieve ArmorAddon objects, however.
