Uninstalling a perk mod

Here's a little tutorial that will teach you how to uninstall any perk mod without needing to rely on the uploader's documentation. Don't know if it's a perk mod? If it CTD (crashes to desktop) when you load a game after unchecking the mod from a loader, this tutorial will allow you to play again. Links to pictures are also included if you would like some visual aid or prefer learning visually, although the pictures are assuming that I'm uninstalling "The Butcher" (hey, it's my mod, so don't assume I'm hating. ;))

  1. Get FO3Edit (you could use the GECK if you want, but it's not as user-friendly).

  2. Run FO3Edit.exe

  3. Make sure that the perk mod you want to uninstall is selected, and click "OK."

  4. Wait for it to finish loading (it'll say "Background Loader: terminated" at the very bottom).

  5. Expand the mod by clicking on the "+" just before it.

  7. Write down "player.removeperk" followed by all of the Form IDs under "Perk."

  8. Caution: Some perk mods have a quest-script running. If you expand the .esp and there is a "Quest" category, write down "stopquest" followed by the Quest Form ID(s).

  9. Close FO3Edit

  10. Start up Fallout 3 (in your loader, make sure the perk mod you want to uninstall is checked) and load your latest save.

  11. Open the console using the tilde ("~") key. If there was a Quest category in the mod, use the "stopquest [FormID]" command before the "player.removeperk [FormID]" commands.

  12. Type in "player.removeperk [Form ID]" for each of the form IDs, pressing Enter after each command.

  14. Start up your loader again, but this time uncheck the perk mod you want to uninstall.

Congratulations! The perk mod has now been uninstalled and you can safely delete the .esp from your Data folder.
