Playing survival I felt it lacked realism. Either my weapons were OP, or the enemies bulletsponges. By simply making the damage dealt by the player to be 100% instead of vanillas 50%, and enemies scaled up to 400%, my high endurance was countered. Suddenly we are all fragile (Human enemies). All weapons were more relevant again.
Damage perks (Commando, etc) was again vital, as well as the toughness perk. Simply put, immersion in the context of the vanilla perks.
This mod is intended especially for the lvl 50+ character, with maximized Gun nut perks resulting in powerfull weapons, often with legendary prefixes. Too often you can steamroll your enemies without thought at this point.
However, for those looking for a challenge, starting a new character with this is also recommended. Simply put, play as if you are mortal, be tactical and use range + cover to keep the initiative.
