Better Perks mod improves the perks, that i felt were underpowered or just useless in vanilla. Also removes level requirements of affected perks (S.P.E.C.I.A.L. requirements remain).
This is fully modular, so you can install only what you want.
Tested on english version of Fallout 4. Altered perk descriptions are in english.

Consider this beta version. 6 perks are affected so far. There is non-zero probability of adding more perks to this mod in future versions. Endorse and stay tuned.
WARNING! Install only one version of each plugin if there is an options.

BETTER PERKS – Big Leagues
A lot of people complain that Big Leagues perk decreases melee damage at level 5 instead of increasing it. And rightfully so. This plugin patches it.
Level 5 Big leagues now properly gives you double melee damage as perk description suggests.
Better Perks – Big Leagues.esp
Better Perks – Big Leagues – no cap.esp – optional file removes level cap(again install only on of these).

BETTER PERKS – Strong Back
Ever felt like taking each piece of junk, every pipe pistol and rider armor? Now you can!
Multiplies carry weight bonus for Strong back and removes level requirements.
Also levels 3 and 4 of this perk are merged so it has total of 3 levels.
There is a 3 versions(use only one):
Better Perks – Strong Back.esp- Standard (x10) increases level 1-2 effect from 25/50 to 250/500 I think it enough to justify point and not too OP.
Better Perks – Strong Back x20.esp- 500/1000- for those who need just this one extra item
Better Perks – Strong Back x100.esp- 2500/5000- because why not, right?

BETTER PERKS – Toughness
Better Perks – Toughness x4.esp
Changes perk’s armor value bonus so you get 40 per level instead of 10. Removes level requirements.
NOTE: it wont make you 4 times more armored. Actual difference between 50 and 250 armor points is 30% on average.
For example taking 100 damage with 50 armor results in -64 Hit Points. Taking 100 damage with 200 armor results in -39 HP. If you wear X-01 with 1940 armor you take 16 damage in same case.
It’s not % results a various depending on damage amount. Generally higher per shot damage amounts get resisted less.
This perk also cumulative with Power Armor, however there is no noticeable difference even between 1500 and 3000 armor. It may help when certain body part isn’t covered by PA.

Better Perks – Life Giver x2.esp
You now get 40 HP per level instead of 20 and regenerate 1 HP/sec instead of 0.5 at max level. Removes level requirements.

BETTER PERKS – Rad Resistant
Better Perks – Rad Resistant x5.esp
Improves magnitude of radiation resistance given by the perk to 50/100/200 points. It’s no Hazmat suit, but it’s something.

Better Perks – Hacker.esp
Hacker now has 2 levels. 1st adds Advanced and Expert terminals, and 2nd Master and “never get locked” ability.
NOTE: this one has minor sound bug: whenever you hack Expert terminal on lvl1 or Master terminal – character still says he can’t do it or “security too good”, before hacking. Not fixed for now.
