I'm having trouble with perks they are not showing up as shown above. Depending on what load order I have them in the Icons for some of the perks switch to a white generic vaultboyand I cant press alt or ctrl to see the higher and lower levels
Do you still need the regular Better perks.esp installed with Better perks-enhanced.esp.

Yeah, I just noticed the same error. I'm going to be just pushing the BLD Perks to the top of the load order (as high as they can be at the most.) and seeing if that'd fix the problem. I'd suggest you experiment with the Load order as well.

Edit:

Even with it at the top there are still some bugs with it. used Start Me Up to get to level 300 off the bat, couldn't spec into any of the better perks bits.

I also have an issue with them redoing my Perks everytime I reload. That may be another mod, but as far as I know this one is the only one that messes with perks in my load out so far.

I'm also having the same trouble with all perk mods. I think it's fallout itself.

You have mods that edit the same perks. I'm not sure why, but you can not overwrite the same perk several times.

A heads up to everybody enhanced perks will cause issue if you also have the Immersive Gameplay mod installed, regular version of better perks however won't cause issues.

Hopefully this will help anyone that has the same issues I had were a lot of perks just showed as the strength training perk in the perk chart.


Ignore above after more investigation found out it was an issue with load order, set Immersive Gameplay as low as possible in load order.

Get xEdit and edit the Ninja Perk. It's very easy to use.

Sorry to necro, but in a limited sense it shouldn't break immersion. Imagine: You're a tough ass raider hanging around with your boys, still sorting the loot you robbed from a surrendering settlement - and suddenly somebody shoots you in the back, catching you quite literally with your pants down. You're in a relaxed state, completely unaware, and therefore not under the pain-threshold-increasing effects of adrenaline. You'd feel this much, much more than if you were in the rush of a combat situation.

It also simulates the fact that if you, the player, are undetected and have the target in sight, you can pick where you're going to shoot, maximizing the lethality of the shot.

So yeah...that's what you need to consider in order to judge the stealth gun damage multiplier.

so im confused about these values? they dont seem to match what i get ingame, i do not have any other mod that changes the park system at all O_o.
it seems to me like its more in-line with what you have shortly in your main mod page description, is it supposed to be that?
im confused.. which one is it? ... im using "better perks - enhanced" and i tried both of them anyway, the other one just seems like more perks match the vanilla.

also why did you change rooted to only work with melee weapons?... strength is not only about melee you know.. (is there any way i can edit this?)
