Thank for constructive and well-structured feedback. There are some valid points, some suggestions that I like and some I don't, and not everything is doable anyway... Unfortunately, I think if I address them all in a single post, it's going to turn into a wall of text. I suggest splitting them and making a topic per component, or something like that.
Bugs may be submitted directly to github
(PHPBB doesn't have a proper wysiwyg editor, I've been thinking about migrating to another forum engine because of that - you can make a suggestion about that as well, in the corresponding section).
To answer the questions, at least:
1.1) Doesn't matter (but remember that only firearms are affected by FO2tweaks. Other weapons will use your DamageFormula setting).
1.2) Yes, Better Criticals one is actually a bug, I didn't think of that. I believe Heavy Handed works properly in vanilla as well.
1.3) That's correct. I tried to explain that clearly, but if you have a suggestion to improve the wording, I'm all ears.
And regarding instakill, enemies can't really have perks
, so this shouldn't be a concern.
Party Orders is a separate mod, I opened a topic
