    Today I have started work on a mod for Fallout New Vegas that includes traits from the original games. This might sound similar to ST Perks and Traits by SmileyTops on the Nexus but here are some things that will set it apart:

    1. The traits are their versions from 1 and 2 (Finesse has a 30% damage decrease unlike the Fallout Tactics version which gives -25%) and only those traits. (no Van Buren or PnP traits)
    2. (This may or may not be a difference as I haven't used ST's mod) Removal of the Bloody Mess perk in favor of a trait which only has the gib effect and no damage increase.
    3. No added perks unlike ST Traits and Perks
    4. No new traits
    So far I have Finesse and Bloody Mess completed and workingand I'll give out a demo with those two traits if asked. I will also give credit to SmileyTops when the mod is published to the Nexus to prevent any misunderstandings.

    Edit: Chem Reliant/Resistant, Jinxed, and Bruiser have been added. Jinxed now reduces your crit chance by 50% and does the same to the enemy. I will tweak this value if it is requested.

    Edit: Version 0.5 is out. it has a few of the perks ready and can be downloaded here. http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/62208/?

    Please report any bugs you may so I can try to fix them in a future update.

    I'm still planning on getting it released soon. Then I'll try working on a classic perk mod as well if it's well-received.

    If you need any help with it I might be able to help you out a tad bit. Is i'm also working on a mod.

    btw what are using to make the perk icons ? Are using original pictures for the perks or creating them from scratch ?

    I only have an icon for Bloody Mess. I would give all the others icons if I knew how to. They're icons from vanilla as I'm not much of an artist.

    Well you could find the icons from the old fallout and but them into FNV. I don't know excatly how to do it but I would imagine you would find the texture for a vinila perk texture, then place the new perk picture over the top of
    it so it fits to seize and then place it in the texture data folder make a new folder call it 'Classicl perks' or whatever. Hope this helps if you need more help just let me know

    I usually make my own icons and if my computer hadn't blown up I wouldn't mind making them for you using the old games images.
    Since I don't have a machine that I can use for mod making at the moment I can only point you to the guide made by the guy (The 3rd Type) who taught me how to do it a few years ago:
    http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/51097/?
    Since you will not be drawing the icons by yourself I think you can skip the early parts and go for the section about how to deal with the image, the Alpha channel and the .dds format options when saving.

    I am going by memory here, but I think The 3rd Type's guide teaches all of that.
