Ok, here's the situation I need some help with.

1) I have a vehicle that can be in one of two forms (Mode.A and Mode.B) which are separate vehicles.
2) I have a vehicle Modification that bootstraps a weapon to the vehicle but only if it's Mode.B.

I can get the Mode.A/B tag with perform container.parent.pulltags[Mode.?]. This gets the Mode.? onto the Modification (which is the one doing the bootstrap of the weapon).

However, I'm at a loss to use that tag as the condition of the bootstrap. I tried just <containerreq phase="Initialize" priority="2100">Mode.B <> 0</containerreq> but no luck. I know hero#Mode.B <> 0 won't work. What am I missing?

Any help would be appreciated.

When containerreqs are looking for a tag, they're looking for it in their container. So

perform parent.pulltags[Mode.?]
perform container.pushtags[Mode.?]

(having to use container.parent to get to the parent is a leftover of an old bug where it didn't let you get there directly).
