Flexible Perk Trees

Minimalist's Skyrim Overhaul and Tweaks

Ever get frustrated that you couldn't level up a skill that's beneath the one you have trained? Maybe you're a light armored assassin who prefers Daedric weapons to glass? Or an enchanter who can't help but be tickled by the idea of lightning jumping from your blade and can't be bothered to learn the fire/ice perks. This mod allows you to level up any perk that is connected to the ones you already know (by "looping around").

Also availible on Skyrim Nexus:

-[This mod is in a complete state and shouldnt be updated anymore barring any bugs reported or user requests]-

I created this mod mainly for people who wanted to train light armor but also wanted Daedric weapons but I quickly realized that all skill trees could also use with the ability to "loop around". This mod allows you to level perks beneath higher level perks. This opens a lot of freedom for some play styles that had to waste precious perks on things they didn't really need and holds some interesting opportunity for the min/maxers out there.

I plan to do a fairly substantial rework of the talent trees(I have a minimalist rework of magic at the bottom if you're interested) in the near future, but this mod I felt was simple enough and small enough to warrant it's own standalone release.

Enjoy the freedom of flexible perk trees!

Should be compatibile with most mods that affects perks but may be overridden by more extensive overhauls(and thus not work) is NOT compatible with a mod that adds perks or changes perks positions in the tree. Works with Vanilla perks only.

If you install this mod and then uninstall later it will cause no issues to your save games but you may have to use console commands to remove perks that were not accessible to you without this mod.

This mod works with all mods I have/will ever create.

Changelog: v1.01
Fixed Purity perk in alchemy tree's dependency on getting 1 rank in the ingredient perk. Was a dependency in the original game as opposed to my mod. Strange. Either way, it's fixed!

Will you be remaking/updating this for SE?

This mod was made when Skyrim was released. It will likely not work with any skill overhauls.

still doesn't work...

Can't get it to work. I guess it's incompatible with the Epic Creatures mod as that mod adds in the abysmal smithing perk. Great idea, the game should function like this. Oh well.

Do you know if it works with the mod "Enchanting Extra Effect"?

@Titanarrow, Just load it last. If you have any mods that change perks at all it wont work for them(as they will be overrided). Works with Vanilla perks only.
Tuvstarr, vild och galen ;) :P Mar 12, 2013 @ 2:50pm 
never got this to work :\ cool idea though.

Just subscribed, but havent had a chance to test yet. Do you think this mod will have a problem with Smithing-a-round? Its the same concept, but only for the smithing perk tree.

Okay, thanks. :)
