  1. Quick question: I am creating an overhaul mod and I would like to use this mod to add a bit of difficulty and gamble. I was wondering if I could have your permission to use this mod with full credit to you.

    Thank you for your time,

  2. Any way to do this but with the probability for breaking at lvl 1 ? “RepairDegradeChance value=0.5”
    I don’t want to break all at level 1 everytime but have a chance to repair/break it on that level.

  3. Is there a way to make it drop to lvl one and a way to change the percentage chance up to 100%. Thanks

  4. thank you for this mod. I recently made the switch from console to pc and I had already grown used to the older console version where you had to invest in a skill for repairing to prevent you from lowering the quality of the item after every repair. I found it odd to see that they had removed that feature in alpha 20 since it just made the game feel much easier overall.
