About this mod

Overhauls several neglected perks. Adds a few new perks and traits. Balances several others.

Permissions and credits
This is the culmination of my work tackling the perks that Obsidian left worthless. Infiltrator, Swift Learner, Here and Now, and others have now been given attention they deserve. If you think I've missed something important, leave a message and I might address it in the next version.

This mod combines work from my previous mods: Heartless Doesn't Provide Poison Immunity, Skilled Nerfed, Baddarkl Balance Patch, and Lessons Learned Overhaul. It is not recommended that you use any of them in conjunction with Baddarkl Perk Overhaul.

This mod requires Dead Money, Honest Hearts, Old World Blues, Lonesome Road, Gun Runners Arsenal, Yukichigai Unofficial Patch, NVSE, and JIP LN NVSE Plugin.

* Remade Perk - Here and Now: Someone has misplaced a large sum of caps. And you just stumbled upon it. Lucky! Requirement: Level 10, 7 Luck.

* Remade Perk - Computer Whiz: You've spent enough time around computers to uncover their greatest secret: The Mushroom Cloud Storage System! Access it from any terminal in the wasteland. Requirement: Level 16, 90 Science.

* Remade Perk - Infiltrator: You've gotten better at avoiding detection while "accessing" restricted areas. You gain 2 Perception and 20 Sneak while indoors. Requirement: Level 16, 90 Lockpick.

* Remade Perk - Lessons Learned: The wasteland has taught you some hard lessons, but you've remembered them all. You gain a unique bonus for each DLC you've completed (DLCs completed after you take this perk won't count). Requirement: Level 16.
