**Nuclear Perks – Hardcore Perk Tree Overhaul**

CHANGELOG 2.0

-Moved Mastery perks to the bottom of their trees.

-Fixed Better settler incompat as well as any future incompat issues regarding SPECIAL stats in other trees in regards to NPC’s using perks

-The way the SPECIAL stats are applied now is via a custom script. If you are in progress this should not hinder you, just make sure you hit a level divisible by 3 before you reload the game. I took a while to get that crap down to be backward compatible, but I had to apply it to a effect in progress so it got chalked onto the perk addition that triggers every 3 levels after 9

V: Known Bugs

VI: F.A.Q.

-This mod is a massive overhaul of the Perk tree in Fallout. It adds hundreds and hundreds of modifications as well as 100+ new Perks by adding to existing.

-There are now Pro’s and Cons to late level perk acquisitions.

-Some things were not changed while others were changed drastically. I figured if it wasn’t broke don’t fix it π

-I highly recommend a new game from the beginning. I will upload some files at the exit to the vault as well here in a few.

-There is a new Mastery Perk tree that only becomes available post level 50 on each tree with the exception of Luck

-You gain no extra initial SPECIAL points instead starting the game with 1 of each SPECIAL. You instead gain an additional 5 Perk Points at level 1, 2, 3, and 4, and 1 addition perk point at levels 5 and 7. Starting at level 9 and every 3 levels thereafter you gain an addition 1 Perk Point as well to reflect the increase in available perks.

-The Special book in your house has been disabled. Bobbleheads work fine with this mod so I have not as of yet decided to modify them.

-Base SPECIAL stats now require points spent in their tree at certain levels.

-Base SPECIAL with the exception of Luck now go up 12 ranks instead of 9 and have varying changes.

-VATS Accuracy has been nerfed around 45%, this is because there are now Perks to up VATS accuracy dmg etc.

-LUCK tree only had two changes so I did not feel the need to change the top level attributes. The tree works as intended.

-There is a Mastery tree in each SPECIAL Tree with the exception of Luck.

-Each Mastery has 3 ranks which can be acquired. Rank 1 Unlocks at level 50, rank 2 at 60 and rank 3 at 70

-You can ONLY SPEND A TOTAL OF 5 MASTERY POINTS

-That means you can only acquire 1 rank 3 Mastery perk. There is a reason for that, they are strong AF

INCOMPATIBLE FOR TE MOMENT WITH BETTER SETTLERS MOD

I have contacted him so we can change his esp, waiting for a response. He assigned some perks to settlers as default instead of making a new one, the fix is easy and I offered to do it for him, just waiting to hear back.

The Base level perks, IE Strength Perception etc, STARS are screwy, ignore them. The stars seem to only go up when certain criteria are met IE you gain a SPECIAL stat from the perk associated. Sometimes even this does not happen. You still are gaining the perk it’s just the STAR that is screwy. It means nothing it is just a visual bug.

This mod CLEARLY will conflict with mods that alter perks, go figure.

Well if you find any make a bug report and I’ll squash them ASAP

Q: WTF, OMG! Seriously.. You did… really?

A: Ya, IKR, weeks of work done π Enjoy
