Try to give him few gold coins. Maybe his brain-dead AI will tell him to go and buy some decent gear. Maybe my memory fails me on this (more then decade ago) in original M&B my companions were able to auto-equip themselves from the loot I left after battle. Don't know why it is not implemented now. It would make sense also from historical point of view, where there was always loot sharing after battle. Of course the leader would take the best chunk of it, but also his captains and soldiers would get their fair share.

sadly, it did. this is a mod thing.

although you are correct that if he gave his lord enough money, he'll equip himself.
lords sell their equipment when they're low on money.

No you can't do anything about it, they won't change their gear and spawning with weird or missing gear is a bug that comes up with kids growing up sometimes for the AI. HOWEVER it's possibly the encyclopedia is showing them in their civ gear, which it also does for many lord with lower skills or who are young (not sure the exact reason) and this later will change to battle armor shown.

But on the plus side, even if they have no gear it doesn't matter to the AI auto calc at all, only level and if has horse or not matters. Imean besides, have you ever seen an AI lord do anything good in battle anyways?

Is this true? I've never seen or heard of this happening before. I've never seen anyone change the gear they spawned in unless I took it off them myself.

i'm not clicking your discord link
Oh no you get in there it's STR time (I'm assuming because it discord)

It might be that these youngsters NPCs dont have battle template assigned to them? Should be inside NPCCharacter xml file. Cant verify, away from my PC 🤔
