This mod adds more than 70 new and reworked abilities to assign to soldiers, gear or aliens, adds UI support for choosing between three perks per soldier level as well as additional levels, reworks the four base classes into seven, and adds 10 new PCS items with perks. Players are invited to create their own classes using these abilities. 

It also reworks the tactical HUD -- the list of ability icons you can activate -- to handle more than 14 abilities at once. 

To play: 
Check the LW_PerkPack mod in the launcher. 

Note: This mod has some options-menu controlled configuration settings that only appear if you have Long War Toolbox installed. The mod's primary functionality does not require Toolbox to be installed.
