Some questions/issues:

1) I was deceived by the use of the adjective "Power" used in this component:
~TNT/TNT.TP2~ #0 #62 // Fair fights | POWER USER component, consult readme -> Also remove undroppable items granting unfair advantages from all enemies: v8.27

I installed it, and I was wondering if I should reinstall the game altogether, or if I can play safely, albeit with the necessity of reporting you some issues (but which issues I should be looking for?)

2) Detection/intuition (of traps) while fighting is a cool component for thieves. I would like to suggest that they do it with a penalty while being in combat. So if they need 60 to detect a trap, they would need 90 to detect the trap.

How were you deceived?
Did you consult the readme?

I didn't know the meaning of power user. So even after reading the readme, I just went through, because I thought "ok, issues can arise because the component is deemed as risky, will report".

But the regret started sinking in once I noticed that the readme doesn't explain even remotely what you should be looking for or avoid (crashes? Nerfs?).

It doesn't even explain which npcs are impacted. Only then I realized I was probably not meant to play with this component.

Let me know if you suggest me to reinstall.

Eh, you have stratagems instaleld on top, it's a pain to reinstall, I wouldn't bother.
The subcomponent is designed to remove items mostly from mages, that were used to emulate pre-cast spells in vanilla, which they actually do with stratagems, so it's kind of unnecesary double buffer.

You can see the code yourself. It just removes some items.
As evident from the comments, sometime the original developers used those items for something else, rather than direct combat application, which resulted in unforeseen situations when those items were removed.
For example, Aldeth is using one of such items to open the door to the Merchants League, which failed in earlier versions, rendering the area unavailable. This particular situation is fixed now.

So, being a power user means that you're not afraid to use console to cheat yourself something or somewhere, should you encounter a bug.

Okay, won't reinstall. Is there a list of npcs whose items were removed? So I can stay on point checking them when I meet them.

There isn't, and I don't know what they are, which is why it's marked as power user.
Weidu keeps logs and backups, however, so you can check the directory for the corresponding component.

I'm back after a long while, so I have to say it... Happy new year!

I didn't have any issue with the "npcs" for the items. Game went perfectly, thanks for the mod.

But, I got a question - would it be possible to install the following components:
~TNT/TNT.TP2~ #0 #4 // Trap reminders -> disclose trap type: v8.27
~TNT/TNT.TP2~ #0 #7 // Trap intuition -> works in combat: v8.27
~TNT/TNT.TP2~ #0 #10 // Trap intuition: toggle Find Traps automatically: v8.27
without fast the traps detection?

~TNT/TNT.TP2~ #0 #7 // Trap intuition -> works in combat: v8.27

Would it be possible to add an optional tweak for this one, making traps able to be detected both out and in combat if you've got at least more than half what you would need to detect them? So it doesn't feel "as" cheaty.
