  • Adding Skills to Be Exceptional

    Hi there! This guide will show you how you can add your own skills that will work with Be Exceptional. This is mainly for those who wish to create a patch for BE and their own mod, but find that the prepackaged system doesn’t really merge well with the balance of their mod.

    This is a guide for creating a patch for mods that edit the skill perks(Rifleman, Gunslinger etc.).

    First of all you'll want to load the Skills Only version of BE along with the mod you want to create a patch for as non active files in the creation kit.

    The Main Skill Handler Perk

    All of the skills(Minus the crafting skills) are handled by a single perk in BE: the 1BSWeaponSkillsPerk so open that(It only managed weapon skills at first, but I eventually put non combat skills in it).
    They do not actually range from 0 to 100, but from 0 to 1(in steps of 0.01) because perk entries only allow entry to 2 decimal places and that causes problems. Dividing by 100 circumvents this.
