What's Changed?
- This mod changes all the chems in the game to real pharmaceutical drugs, as well as many non-pharmaceutical drugs.
- Drugs have more than one effect, and are stronger than in the vanilla game.
- Drug effects are based (as close as I could make them) on their real-life effects.
- Drug effects are balanced out by their withdrawal.
- Most drugs have been changed to generic bottles (Buffout), dose-packs (Mentats), and Syringes.
