In the Skyrim Console, how can I reference an object that is not in the cell that I currently am in?
For example, if I am in BronzeWaterCave and type:
"000c76c9".additem 000669A5 5
It will add 5 leeks (
000669A5) to the Dwemer chest (
000c76c9) in the cave.
However, if I am outside of BronzeWaterCave the same commands will result in:
Syntax error. Invalid reference '000c76c9' (only object references and reference variables are allowed in this context).
This is a purely academic inquiry; I am not trying to accomplish anything.
I just noticed that if I type
000EEC5F".additem 000669A5 5, the corpse of Sinderion (RefID
000EEC5F) in Blackreach would gain 5 leeks, no matter where I was located in the game. He clearly didn't exist in my cell. I have many different restarts of Sykrim with totally different characters, but in all the games, the RefID for the Dwemer chest in BronzeWaterCave is always
000c76c9. I assumed it got assigned that when the Bethesda developer plopped it in the cave during game construction. I assumed its RefID was unique within the game, but maybe that RefID is only unique within a cell. Sinderion's is clearly unique within the game.
I was just wondering if you could uniquely reference a PRID from another cell by somehow preferencing it, for example (and I can assure you this doesn't work):
