Basically i am a bit disoriented, since CoC has clearly changed the way the loot system works.
I have run a small test, editing character_desc_general. In the <supplies> section, i have addded "grenade_f1 = 10 \n" for each loadout of a specific faction. When i try trading with them, i see nine grenades in te inventory (i assume it is ten minus one equipped). However when i kill them and search the bodies, i see ranbom number of grenades, between zero and ten; that is despite the fact of death_generic having a line: "grenade_f1 = 0, 1".
At this point i realised, "i am surely missing something", and went here to ask.
What is a relation between NPC's "alive" inventory, and his "dead" inventory?
