Hello, I am TLHPoE. I used to mod back in 1.7 and have returned. Here's my old thread with my past mods
Scalae is a mod centered around adding a Skyrim-esque skill and perk system where you have many skills that you can level up by doing actions related to the skill. For example, harvesting wheat for leveling your foraging skill. For every skill you level up, experience is added to your character's level (not the level used for enchanting). When your character levels up (again, not the level used for enchanting), you gain a perk point. These points can be used to unlock perks. Below is a list of all the perks and their descriptions.

Balance-wise I'm using this now on a server and there's quite a disparity between the difficulty of leveling up certain skills vs the number of levels it takes to gain seemingly overpowered perks. If I remember correctly, every user had fully leveled up swordplay and archery within a couple hours. A safe fix would actually be to just make everything take longer to level up. That way progression takes longer and feels more worth it.
Everyone loves the mod by the way. I just want to provide some criticism in the balance department.
