Better Companion Perks

This is my first mod and it changes the perks you get from companions after reaching maximum affinity with them. My goal is to make the perks more desirable/rewarding since you have to travel with them for a long time, do and say things they like, and THEN do some wild quest for them to reach max affinity. 
THIS MOD IS A WORK IN PROGRESS AND WILL BE UPDATED PERIODICALLY WITH MORE CHANGES INCLUDING FAR HARBOR COMPANION
