information on the current text documents for the alpha version of Reborn V9:

-Made fists more useful, scoring a critical will knock down an opponent. base damage multiplied by 10, level up damage increase multiplied by 5-Two handed melee weapons now deal half the damage, but will usually knock a human out if they do not kill with the first strike (this can happen to the player too!). This sounds over-powered, but I found that melee weapons were almost useless in my mod, and you were probably better off pissing on an enemy than hitting him.-Re-worked most of the weapons to support RH_ironsights. RH-Ironsights is now REQUIRED for the mod to work properly.-Re-worked the needs system to be far more stable, realistic, and stat based. You also need to use food/meds one at a time, and you cannot use weapons while using them.-Re-worked the night-vision goggles to have a (crappy) 3D model, more options, and greater availability, they also consume fission batteries.-Limited HUD assistance, no more rad counter, sneak menu, HP, AP, air menu, or crosshair HUD (unless you're aiming in 3rd person).-Toned down the auto-aim, this isn't a console game.-VATS has been disabled, no more easy way out of combat.-Level max has been raised to 100, it now takes almost twice the XP to level up and the base Skill Points per level up = 3 + Intelligence instead of 10 + intelligence.-Removed the royal wasteland bank.-Increased some radiation sources by 10 times more rads/sec. It's recommended you either avoid these areas or use the improved rad suits to survive the radiation.-Followers now level up independently of you.-Increased Mirelurk damage values.-removed SCAR-L-Greatly reduced the amount of ammo and chem loot you can find on enemies and in containers and around the wastes.-Fixed TMP Silenced not sounding right, and fixed reload animation.-Set FN-FAL to be fully automatic, and replaced the ACOG variant with a scoped version.-Upped the desert eagle damage by 30 points.-Fixed M79 Grenade Launcher-Replaced the AWM unscoped with vanilla-style hunting rifles.-Removed some of the annoying tutorial messages.-Tweaked all the perks to better fit with Reborn.-Fixed the high RPM M249 to use 5.56x45mm, not 7.62x51mm.-Changed chest crippled stagger chance from 50 to 100 percent.-Changed the one crippled leg speed to 60 instead of 85 percent.-Changed the two crippled legs speed to 40 instead of 75 percent.- Added in a sprint system that allows you to sprint when you hold Shift.-Tweaked the Stun Grenade effects, to make them more useful.*Put in an option in the player house terminal that allows you to change the amount of enemies that populate the wasteland, from 1 to 10 times.-Tweaked the Light Step perk to only give you a 50% chance of not triggering enemy traps.-Removed several perks, to fit Reborn better.-Changed menu tooltips to fit Reborn better.-Tweaked Scrounger and Fortune Finder perks to be more balanced.-Raised the level and skill requirements for most perks (to fit with the 100 level cap).-Added the Benelli M4 shotgun.-Fixed the alien ship crash random event to NOT send the ammo flying everywhere, and to include more ammo.
-------------------------POSSIBLE TO DO-------------------------------------
Update Player House Terminal with latest info.-Allow the player to access mod settings right out of the Vault.-Make sleeping pass time, tweak fatigue effects.-Add dreaming (quests).-Add new vault quests at age 13, 17, and 18.-Add readable books with 5 questions you must answer correctly to get the skill points.-Add new quests related to getting old and having a family, die of old age.

The bank was removed because the interest makes getting caps too easy, when they're supposed to be hard to get in V9. And you don't want ironsights? Why not?

Oh, I need an extra mod due to the fact that the creator of the mod won't let me use any part of it, even if I credit him. Well, he will, but he says my mod can only be uploaded to Fallout 3 Nexus, then. So the work around is to require that you download his mod, and I can upload my mod where I wish.

Some of them are really crappy looking, because of the limitations of the mod, but in the end, I think it's worth it to be able to have a more-or-less HUD-free game.

Can't wait man, great job! Some of those "possible to do"s sound awesome, although wouldn't the age thing screw with the storyline, it's not like everyone else is aging but you are.

Well, everyone would age and or die accordingly. It would more or less be an hour-long playable ending to the game that you initiate when you're done with a game. Some people might keep playing on one account, but I make a new one every so often.
