I'm evaluating different armor types and mods to figure out what works best as for my stealthy character. Unfortunately, in comparing one armor set with another I've only found anecdotal advice:
- less weight is better
- "lighter build" mods help
- "shadowed" mods help
- "padded" mods help
But I can't find any numbers for an actual comparison, so I'm reduced to saying things like "gosh, it seems like I'm getting detected a little less often now, I think, maybe".
Ideally I'd like to find out the stealth value/bonus/penalty of a specific piece of armor or—just as helpful—of my current character taking armor and other factors into account.
Is there a console command, or some less direct method, that will tell me how stealthy an item is? The console command
player.getav will show current character variables, but I've only found two that sound promising, and neither changes when I switch armor:
