In my case, I never use random for professions/perks. I manually selected burglar and perks on 2 separate occasions and spawned without the stat boosts.
I saw another bug report on this issue and the issue probably lies in the randomization for the appearance tab removing the profession.
"edit2: I may of found something that goes along with it i just picked the police officer and went to where i can chose how they look hit random once could no longer pick the police specific clothing started the game and the that happend shows no professions and 0 skills."
Either you play the easier mode because you suck at the harder mode, or you don't. That's your choice.
Not going to waste the days of my life arguing about this at this point.
Will happily add more sandbox options to make it more customizable and continue to tweaking combat as necessary, but we're not going to throw it out of because someone just refuses to use the tools we provide them.
