Luck does not increase my skills

Post by Tsjiele » Thu Nov 17, 2022 11:48 pm

Installed TTW through gophers tutorial essentials from the installation guide of ttw.
I play with following adjustement mods ROOG - BLEED - SawyerBatty
All mods seems to be working fine, the only two issues I have:

In the S.P.E.C.I.A.L. book in the start I only get to distribute 26 points (every stat already has a value of 1), but in total I thus distribute 33 points (7+26). Is this correct?
Increasing my luck stat does not increase my skills, not even when I alter my luck several points.

Does anyone know whether these are changes inherent to TTW or could this be mod conflicts?

The 33 S.P.E.C.I.A.L. points are something from ROOG. It's the first feature mentioned on the mod page. :)

I asked around and Roy (ROOG's author) says ROOG also removes the Luck bonus to skills.

This is nowhere mentioned on the ROOG pages on nexus, so thanks for that swift response and information.
I will change my build as luck now basically only impacts my crit chance right?

Current:
Str: 4
Per: 4
Agl: 4
Luc: 6
Int: 10
Chr: 1

Luck is also important for gambling and to be able to get some perks.
There are 2 other situations where having high luck is required in NV (a dialogue check to find out a password needs Luck 7 and a situation with Caesar needs Luck 9).

I don't think you need higher luck unless you want to win easier at the casinos. But there are ways of increasing Luck in-game (implant + Lucky 8 ball + several pieces of equipment).

Acutally luck affects just about everything in the game ;)

This is why I removed the skill bonus, it already does too much.
