More Perks Mod (MPM for abbreviation)
Requirement: Fallout NV.esm
Date November 2nd 2010.
Link: More Perks for New Vegas[/b]
More Perks from Fallout 3 continues in New Vegas!
There are currently 75 perks at the moment, many of them came from Fallout 3 Version of More Perks Mod.
In NV version, most of them are revised to fit into NV and take advantage of NV assets, but the core concept
that be able to make Luck and Action Points much more useful remains the same.
Also, many scripts have been written from the scratch and I optimized and fixed many errors that I made from the original More Perks.
Even so, I haven't fully tested all the perks and they may not function as expected.
Back in Fo3, one thing that bothered me the most was the fact that some people can't figure out how the perk function and what the FormID for each perk.
If you come across a problem, first look at the perk details in datamore perksperk details folder, all 75 perks have each of thier own perk detail.txt
and the file includes specific condition and script and some abilities that are now shown in the little perk description screen.
And Finally, I offer +1 Kudo/Rep to whoever finds bug/glitch/spelling error/technical error/annoyance in More Perks Mod.
Thank you and enjoy.

All I did was just putting them together, If you wish to use the pipboy images that I uploaded, feel free to do so.
It would still be a nice gesture if you provide credits.
My e-mail is tied to this Nexus account, so if you PM me, I would see it within 24 hours.
Only thing that I wouldn't allow is to let someone integrate the entire More Perks into their overhaul mod.
