Changing the player sprite via equipped items... bugged? Also, question about changing sprites via conditions...

Getting back into modding this awesome game, and since I've been out of it for a bit I'm a little rusty... so was hoping someone can answer this question for me:

Is it possible to change the player's sprite when an item is equipped in the neck slot? It works fine for my custom item when I equip it in the hands slots, but even though I have the same image set up for the neck slot (slot 23), the player's map sprite doesn't change when the item is around their neck.

To test further, I made a simple mod that changes the talisman the player starts with to make it look like the player is wearing the blue frog sash when it's around their neck... but on loading the game, the player's appearance isn't changed. This leads me to believe there is a bug that prevents the neck slot (23) from changing the wearer's sprite even if it is set up correctly. Can someone confirm this?

I'm a bit disappointed if it's true, as it kind of ruins the mod I'd just made... :(

On a related note, does anyone know if it's possible to change a character's sprite/appearance if they either A) possess an item (equipped or not) or B) are currently affected by a specific condition?
