Short version: player.addperk isn't working like I want it to.

Is there a way I can change the number of available perk choices that I have? Basically I want to level myself without increasing my level or my magic/health/stamina.

You have specify which perk code to add.

You can make a batch file to add them all in one command or add them one by one.

When you do this, does it light up the node in the UI like you actually added the perk? I couldn't get that to work. – JoeB Dec 5 '11 at 15:45
Also, I find it hard to believe that there isn't a command to modify the 'AvailablePerkCount' value somehow. – JoeB Dec 5 '11 at 15:46
Oooh that is interesting. So it might be possible for a web based "character build" to generate a bat that you can use in-game to apply the build. – faB Dec 5 '11 at 16:43
Yes faB that's definitely possible. Krazer - player.addperk seems to do what I want, maybe I was using it wrong. Thanks. – JoeB Dec 6 '11 at 1:04
addperk is basically broken; it'll often look like it worked (as far as the tree is concerned) but not actually have any effect. – Aarobot Dec 6 '11 at 22:59
