Title: [1.0] Tech Advancing (1.8.10)
Post by: GHXX on July 31, 2016, 04:53:24 PM
Tech Advancing

Description:
This mod advances the Techlevel of your Colony. Once certain conditions (mentioned below) are fulfilled, your Techlevel gets improved.

Some more Info
When does the Techlevel get improved?

Once one of the two Conditions(either A or B) is fulfilled:
            Condition A:
            if the player researched all projects of techlevel X and below , then the techlevel rises to X+1
            ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
            Condition B:
            If the player researched more than 50% of the projects with the techlevel Y, then the techlevel rises to Y
 
        Since A17 there is also the option to require a non-tribal pawn to advance beyond the 'Medieval' techlevel, but it is disabled by default and
        has to be enabled manually if you would like to have that extra challenge. :)

What techlevel equals what number?

        Undefined = 0,
        Animal = 1,
        Neolithic = 2,
        Medieval = 3,
        Industrial = 4,
        Spacer = 5,
        Ultra = 6,
        Transcendent = 7

The source code is available on Github: https://github.com/RimWorldMod/Tech-Advancing/tree/master

You can make my mod skip your researches by adding a special tag to the tag list. Example:

<ResearchProjectDef>
      <defName>Firefoam</defName>
      <label>firefoam</label>
      <description>[...]</description>
      <baseCost>800</baseCost>
      <techLevel>Industrial</techLevel>
      <prerequisites>
         <li>MicroelectronicsBasics</li>
      </prerequisites>
      <tags>
         <li>ta-ignore</li>
      </tags>
      <requiredResearchBuilding>HiTechResearchBench</requiredResearchBuilding>
      <researchViewX>7</researchViewX>
      <researchViewY>4</researchViewY>
   </ResearchProjectDef>

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):
Q:  Can I add it mid game?
A:  Yes, it should check your Technology level every time you finish a research project and every time you load the save.

Q:  How can I contact you?
A:  I you can either join the Rimworld Discord server, to send me a pm on Discord, or you could leave a Reply here.

Q: Why is it not working?
A:  Read the install instructions. If it still doesn't work, contact me.

Q:  Does the Technology level stay when I un-install the mod?
A:  No, if the mod is not installed then Rimworld gets to decide what your technology level is. It will be Neolithic if you are a tribe or Industrial if you aren't.

Q:  Does this mod work with mod X and Modpack Y , etc. ?
A:  If no mod detours "ResearchManager.ReapplyAllMods()". Try it and let me know if it does.
Q:  What does that mean?
A:  Just try it. You will see if it does work or not.

Q:  How do I install the mod?
A:  Read the install instructions.

Q:  I researched everything and your mod isn't doing anything. Why?
A:  I need some more information on this: there are two cases:
      case A: You messed up. Read the install instructions again.
      case B: Another mod detoured "ResearchManager.ReapplyAllMods()" after Tech Advancing did it.

Q:  My Game crashed. What do I do?
A:  Make sure you installed it properly. If it still doesn't work, copy the error and contact me.

Q:  This mod is OP and I hate you because of that.
A:   In this case: Quickly go to the main menu and disable it.

Q:  I want to yell at you, where can I do that?
A:   Sure, go ahead and waste your time. (see "How can I contact you?")  ;D

Q:   Can i make a translation for you?
A:   Yes, that would be awesome. Write a comment here, on steam, message me on Discord or open a pull-request on github.

I'm sure this will be in the game by default eventually but wow. Good work for getting it to us early!

EDIT:
Would it be difficult to have a version where you only advance via researching 50% of a tech level? I would like for it to be a little more challenging.

It would not be difficult. But i would like to keep it one mod. maybe i can come up with a config or something. we will see.

My mod needs to replace a vanilla method.If two mods do that, then the last mod wins. That means if my mod loads after the other mod that replaces the exact same vanilla method , then my mod wins and works. if the other mod loads after mine then it wins and works.

This seems like a much more natural way and engaging way of doing it compared to somehow staying at neolithic techlevel the whole game even when you are researching bionics and spaceships and stuff...

That said - this fix also sort of requires research-costs across the board doesn't it? otherwise, doesn't research of late-game tech just become far easier than intended?

And one more thing - how does this mod work together with other mods that add research options? Do they count in the calculation or does it only count vanilla research options?

-Stigma

I wanna say  they(mods) dont bother them. I can get to medieval, by researching all of medieval [vanilla] (researching all of neolithic did not get me there)to shorten the time for industrial, and i did all my medieval and am not at industrial. so i'm just doing all of industrial hoping to get to industrial. but i wanna be enlightened too.

-Stigma

I am 90% certain that it should work with all mods, because it just counts the research projects for each techlevel, does some quick calculations and then sets the techlevel of the colony, which affects ALL researches.

About the super easy late game research, yes it makes it somewhat easier, but only if you got most of the other researches done. For example you can NOT rush spacer technology because you require the multi analyzer. And researching more than the first half of projects still costs a ton of Research points.
Additionally, if you got the Spacer technology level for example, and you research medieval stuff, then research cost is still 100%. it cant go below that.

I have tested the rules mentioned in the first post multiple times before the release, so it should work. I also tried adding my mod to an existing world where i also played with glitter tech and other mods that add research, and that worked too. i think it set me to industrial.
Make sure you research all Neolithic and Medieval projects if you want the industrial tech level.
For troubleshooting, i refer to the FaQ

Hey, just wanted to report a "bug" - or rather a compatibility/stability issue.

I've found out that your mod wasn't compatible with the steam workshop version of colony manager mod (https://ludeon.com/forums/index.php?topic=16888.0), even when loaded last. It seems it's related to one of the research added by this mod, which has no tech level, which seems to confuse your mod (in game, tech level never change). If I fix the relevant research by setting a tech level in the xml file of the colony manager mod, your mod suddenly works fine.

So, even if the bug is more on the side of the colony manager mod, just wanted to warn you that this kind of thing can shut down your mod, in case you wanted to do something about it.

Title: Re: [A14] GHXX's Tech Advancing (1.0)
Post by: JesusKreist on August 04, 2016, 04:16:23 PM
Short Answer :Yes.
As long as the research from the mod is categorized in the vanilla categories (neolithic, industrial, ..) it is recognized.

Short Answer :Yes.
As long as the research from the mod is categorized in the vanilla categories (neolithic, industrial, ..) it is recognized.
A correction on that:
It works on every mods research, because it checks all researches that are registered. If a research wasnt registered then it just would be ignored.

Hello, great mod but I have a problem since today.
I can't load my saves or start a game with the mod installed.
I've tried to re-install it for A15 but the game says that it's the 0.16.1393 (not sure of the 4 last numbers) version even when I download the A15 version...

Bad things can happen if you want to remove the mod later, but with a straight up detour that won't happen.

1. Its definitely better than storing what i want in a text file or somewhere else. because if that save file would be used on another pc all configs wont be there if they just copy the map file.

2. I have not seen anything happen when i removed it. If errors occur then ill see about another way of storing information.

When starting a game with the tribe scenario and mod default settings, I start at industrial tech level instead of neolithic.

Is this normal considering there are a few tech researched in this scenario? I would have expected to start at neolithic.

Quick question, anyway you can make it where the World Map icon changes based on your tech level? I hit transcendent and my Map Icon is still a tribal tent. ;o;

I have no idea if thats doable easily, without creating any new incompatibilities. I, personally, don't think that that is a big problem, I would rather focus on extending functionality. Also, isn't the tent a good way to show that you started as tribe and made it up to transcendent?

Yeah, True :/ Mainly I just wanted a shiny new Icon on the map. Because I keep losing my home base because of the other tribe ones around me.

You do know that Rimworld cant read .zip files right? The version you uploaded is just a zip. folder with the Def, Assemblies and About folder.

Do you know that you have to unpack this mod like any other mod? because browsers don't support downloading folders?
Title: Re: [A16] GHXX's Tech Advancing (1.4)
Post by: Hayhorse on January 16, 2017, 09:21:03 PM
Yes I do, viewing the zip file and extracting it via winrar yields nothing but the three internal folders, no folder to hold the mod.

It should be: (Zipped folder) > (Mod Folder) > (Defs, About, Assemblies)

Not : (Zipped Folder) > (Defs, About, Assemblies)

Edit: This is because Rimworld cannot read .zip or .rar folders, it should be the first path I listed because, when extracting a zip folder, it should pull out a folder containing the other folders, not the individual folders.

thats because if the folder was included then some people would mess up the folder path because they have the 3 folders in the TA-Folder in the TA-Folder in the RW-Mods folder, and they wouldnt notice it....

What "Mod Settings" are you talking about?
If its added by Hugs Lib then it will be a "No" for now because there isn't a way to do it thats not overly complicated. The way i worked out would include some renaming of files, requiring a second mod-restart after disabling / enabling Techadvancing or HugsLib and i would need two .dll files instead of one.
This might change in the future when HugsLib's functionality gets improved. Sorry.

Would I still get the mod functionality by removing "MainTabDef" folder?
I`m okay with default settings, but do not want an extra button (which would never be used by me) to clutter UI.

edit: also may be add an Letter event notification when Tech level advances?
edit2: oh, nvm, theres already a notification letter.
And looks like it works just fine without adjustable config.
Great stuff, thanks a lot.

It's Update-Time! Hooray!
There were a few reports/requests which lead to a need for a manual base-techlevel-selection. Thats added now.
The default techlevel-selection is called "Autodetect" which reads the techlevel from the savefile, like before.
I re-updated from A15 and hopefully eliminated most of the MapComponent issues.
If there are any issues, let me know.

The new arrivals?  you mean when you start as a colony? Some people reported that issues too. seems to be a bug with some other mods, thats why i added the option to choose what the base techlevel should be in the config.

As i have said before, i wont use Hugs Lib, its just another dependency, like CCL back in the day. The thing is that using hugslib in my case would be quite complex and annoying for the end user.
But i just finished working on including "Harmony", which is much better in my case.

So: the usual super-easy to read blue text:

Because lots of people were begging for it:
The config button now is a thing of the past!
Thanks to "Harmony" (made by Andreas Pardeike aka Brrainz) i was able to move a button into the research screen
which allows you to open the config screen!

Is it possible to make it so you can configure the percentage of techs you need to research to get to the next tech level? I play tribal and use a lot of mods, and a lot of mod authors like to add techs to unlock every little thing, which can really add up in terms of research time. If I could set it to go up a tech level when I've researched, say, 90% of the current tech level's projects, I could leave a few "500 research points for fancy hats" techs for later. As it stands I've actually abandoned mods I otherwise liked for adding too much low-tech research.

I'm having a little bit of trouble getting this mod to trigger, and I'm not quite sure if I am encountering a bug, incompatibility or am just misunderstanding something.

I've read through the rules and try to get a neolithic tribe to advance to medieval by researching all neolithic tech. Tribes start with most of it - so as far as I can tell it's only devilstrand and brewing that you need to research to finish that tier - but it doesn't seem to do anything.

- I've poured over the research tree to make sure there aren't more neolithic tech
- The only other mod I can think of that could do anything with that research function is maybe research-pal (is any incompatibility with this known?)
- I don't have the optional rule for requiring non-tribal members activated
- A few research topics added by mods don't seem to indicate a tech-level at all (in research-pal at least). Is there any chance these could be messing things up - like if they had a techlevel of 0 or something by default?

Is there anything else I am forgetting to check here? I'd like to verify this works ok before I start a new playthrough so I don't get frustrated halfway through and have to restart.

BY the way - I think the idea of the previous poster to let the percentages of required tech to advance be user-definable is a pretty good one. If it's not too much of a problem to implement I think it would make the mod considerably better.

I also think that some version of this really should be part of the main game - but that's a separate topic I guess. Consider posting in Tynan's thread about mod integration. If the base game had tech advancement it would sure help a lot in making sure research overall was balanced since would be a single standard to adhere to.

EDIT: I found the source of the problem, and it does not seem to be the fault of this mod. I was using research pal, and it seems like it had some problems with some research added by mods and was displaying them on top of eachother - so in essence hiding some additional neolithic research stuff. Once I finished those in my testing the techlevel raised as expected.

I think Tynan made the tech level 'system' the way it is so that, when making their desired scenario, someone can choose to play the role of a slow-researching faction, or a faster one.  Basically, difficulty modes, no?

As in, it's not at all the same situation as in games like Civ.  The tech levels are fluff, is what Im suggesting, and that he intended for them to act as difficulty levels.

That might be the case, but a lot of players dislike the way it is right now and want to be able to bump up their techlevel, because when installing more mods that add more and more researchprojects having that x3+ multiplier really increases the amount of research points required. If people prefer the old way they can just disable/unsubscribe from/uninstall  this mod :)

I think Tynan made the tech level 'system' the way it is so that, when making their desired scenario, someone can choose to play the role of a slow-researching faction, or a faster one.  Basically, difficulty modes, no?

As in, it's not at all the same situation as in games like Civ.  The tech levels are fluff, is what Im suggesting, and that he intended for them to act as difficulty levels.

Trust me when I say that tech advancement in no way makes tribals "fast", or "as fast", or even "not horribly slow" at research =P

Tribals with the vanilla system start slow and then get AGONIZINGLY slow at later levels as everythign started to require 3x and 4x research. You need 3-4 researchers to get anywhere. It's not fun IMO, and the reason why a lot of people got turned of tribals because you just never seem to get anywhere and eventually get totally bottlenecked by it.

As soon as tech levels made it into the game I felt that this was missing immediately in order for the curve to be somewhat smooth.
To each his own though.

Ok I have some practical feedback after using this in my latest run.
Something fairly critical that is missing...

We really need some sort of counter of "remaining XXXTECHLEVEL projects" counter, or even better - a list or just SOMETHING to help you find remaining projects that you need to finish for a level.

Because the main problem I have is that I have to spend AGES pouring over all the research and try to find that one last research project that is required for me to advance. There is no way to see this easily. Research pal does tell you in the popup-text, but you still have to read every research option to find out - and its just a nightmare... not this mods fault pr se. but it makes it super impractical, doubly so with mods installed that add their own projects that you can't easily just wiki or whatever.

Second of all, is there a way i can make it so the second rule is the default one?
A small change i would like to make so i don't have to edit the config every time i start a new game.

If you could do that you would be my 3rd favorite streamer ever, I also would send pasta to that kid in Sweden and did you know that talon is responsible for 25% of first bloods?

I recommend you to just use the second rule. If you research half of your current tech researches you move on to the next one.

I think the game is still balanced and far from op.

I don't want to tinker with the researchpal research tree because then it wont look as nice. One possible thing would be that the researchpal author gives different colors to the borders of the research nodes. One color per level. as for vanilla: It's not that hard to find a missing research in my opinion because usually their level increases with the requirements.

I have no idea what you mean with one rule being the default one. Both rules are active. You can kinda disable them by setting that config variable to -99 or something.

The answer to the question "Is research good as it is now in vanilla?" really depends on whos playing it and what faction they play as (tribe vs. colony) My opinion is that research is taking too long as tribal, especially when installing a load of mods, but once again, thats just how i feel about it. Thats why this mod exists  :P

For some reason the mod is not recognizing my non-tribal pawns, I started as a tribe so I enabled the "can't get past medieval without a non-tribal pawn", but even though I have multiple non-tribals [from various sources, even, pirates, escape podders, etc] if I enable that rule I get my tech stuck on medieval.

Update!(for developers)
You can now make Tech Advancing skip certain researches by adding the tag "ta-ignore" into the taglist of a research. (You can find an example in the developer section of the original post)
Players should still update so that this feature becomes available to the other modders. Thanks!

Due to lack of time and interest I decided that it might be best to have someone else become the developer for this mod.

Requirements are pretty good C# knowledge since the mod is mostly written in that language.

If you think you are up for it and you want to continue this mod, let me know on Discord (thats faster than the forum) or send me a Forum PM.

You will most likely get an answer within a week to give everyone time to read this and decide if they want to do it.

every project that got the ignore tag (see below) is ignored by my mod. The repeatable researches from the Call-of-Cthulhu---Cults mod already got the tags implemented from what i can see on github. So they should be ignored. If they arent then contact the Author of that specific mod.

In the basegame your faction's tech level effects a multiplier of how long it takes to research something based on the project's tech level, normally you just end up with high tech researches taking forever but with this mod your own tech level goes up and the penalty is removed if you have done enough research at the previous tech level.

Could you please add another option that the tech level advances when 75% of the current techs are researched? Or alternatively make Option B configurable via the mods menu?

While Option A is too much with many mods active that add their own researches, I'd still like to research more than only 50% before the level advances. Something in between would be perfect.

Soooo, finally some good news. I was able to use a few hours to work on this. It should all work again, but there might be bugs. Play with it a little and let me know how it works out for you. If you find any bugs let me know. There will be a lot of log output ('[Information]') but you can ignore it. Same goes for the debug warning in the beginning.

This version is NOT on Steam. Thats because there are some people that get super angry when something doesn't work for sure. Blame it on them.
I will put it onto Steam once its stable and tested enough.

Enjoy!

There were a few bug reports on Steam and the code was very messy. No rewrite since A14.
As for the changes: pretty much everything changed code-wise. The functionality should just be as good as in the last version(minus the bugs).

Update!
I uploaded a new version to Steam and to the forum with some more fixes. If you find anything else, let me know. Fastest way would be opening an issue on Github. Anything else works too.
Just make sure to add steps to reproduce it, and or some sort of error. Saying 'Hey it doesn't work' doesn't help :)

And the mod is now officially called 'Tech Advancing'. Those extra 4 or 5 letters made it way too long.

You should place a folder inside the zip file you give to download, with the Name of the mod, and then inside the folders that make the mod work.
In this case you provided 4 folders, 2 of which have different names (Languages and languages) where the uppercasing in linux breaks things badly.
Could you please fix this?

Ill look into the lowercase issue, not sure about the folder steucture. in my opinion doing it this way gets rid of issues because you wont end up having [TechAdvancing]/[TechAdvancing]/About,etc.

GHXX, didn't use github like all these other modders do, but he didn't told you to get the release from there, he point to the dropbox link.
But even at the github folder "TechAdvancing    newest build " all looks fine, it isn't just easy to install for simple gamer like the dropbox archive.

I use the releases for providing easy access to older versions. You should be able to get the version from github from master too since that gets copied into my game when i compile it. Thats the very same thing thats on dropbox.

@frenchiveruti ,you could use the steam version if you got the game on steam. But i might look into it. And if you are worried about it you can grab it from Github or make a script to rename it for you.

It actually will speed up game progression, when you research, on "vainilla" rimworld you have a "Research level" that's the same for the entire game, so lets say you are in a normal game, your research level will be "industrial" for the enitre game, no matter how many "super advanced" tech you research you'll always have a penalty of 50% speed for "spacer" research.
What this mod does is "tier" the research levels, so if you start as a tribe, and you research all the "tribe level" research, you will "advance" into the next level. And so on.

When playing as a colony (industrial base level) then not having this mod isnt too bad, but when playing as a tribe the research cost multiplier becomes astronomical (some exaggeration there, but its much bigger), so researching gets very slow. Especially when installing mods that add more research projects. Thats when this mod comes in handy.

As for the conflicts: in the current release there are no confirmed issues thus far.

It can never go below your base techlevel, so it might be a conflict. Could you please check what the base techlevel is set to? (in the config screen)

It will most likely be set to autodetect and some other mod might tinker with it when it loads, which alters the base techlevel. Just set the base level manually and you will be fine :) (set it to tribe / neolithic in your case).

If your mod list is fairly small (less than 20) please let me know which you are actively using.(maybe use pastebin) Thanks!

With autodetect, it is set to (tribe): undefined. I have around 160 active mods. I'll try to narrow them down to see which one is the culprit. The one that cause conflict should be that add research or alter techlevel right?

You could try to move my mod at the very end of the list, that should make it 'win' when it comes to modifying a certain code area. If thats the issue then Ill release a fix for that, even though i thought nobody else would modify it.

Adding research isnt a problem because thats done without editing what i am editing when the game runs. It has to be some mod that modifies the techlevel of your colony/tribe.

TL;DR Please try moving it to the bottom of the list, and please try to narrow it down. Thanks :)

Title: Re: [A18] Tech Advancing (1.8.2)
Post by: GHXX on December 31, 2017, 11:14:17 PM
I'm getting this error sometimes when I start new maps using Hugslib, makes testing troublesome.
Thanks again for your help!

I have tried starting a new tribe with only 4 mods, Mod E, Core, ModSwitch and Tech Advancing in that order. But the base techlevel is undefined. Is this a normal behavior? But the Condition A and B shows neolithic.
Tracked it down and fixed it. Thanks!

Update
Fixed two bugs, one of them was quite serious. I wish you all a happy new year along with this update! :)

So, uh, can someone upload the a16 version?
And what kind of brain damage causes modders to take down their old versions?
It's not like RimWorld is free software that we can just upgrade through our package manager or git scripts whenever a new version is released.

You could try to show a bit more respect for something they are doing for free for you. If they are attachments on here, they get auto deleted after x amount of time. If I was the mod author and you called me brain damaged, I would definitely not upload the A16 version just for you, but I would have been more than happy to otherwise if you had just been polite.

Quote
Old versions are available in the 'releases' section on github: ->Click me<- (A17+)
For even older versions (A14-A16 contact me)

Maybe you could read the OP next time. So go ahead, ask the "brain damaged" modder GHXX for the A16 version, smart guy.

This seems awesome, i always wondered why this doesn't work in the game by default. Most likely not implemented yet, as the game is in beta.

By the way, its "[B18]" since the game advanced to Beta from "A17". Its confusing as the game version should be Beta 1, not Beta 18 after Alpha 17. But hey, i'm not the dev.

To me you sound like that kind of people that dont seem to appreciate anything we (the modders) do. Cant be that hard to write some shitty code, eh? As the following user mentioned: Friendlyness is (the) key.
And one reason for me to take down old releases is that only none out of the 100 thousand people that read this thread requested an old version thus far. Keeping them all on the page is a waste, just like writing this long reply to you. :/

I didn't notice it was B18. Thanks for letting me know. Tynan (the main dev) probably continues the number so that versioning becomes more consistant. The last version number was 17 and now its 18. If it started again from 1 then they would overlap soon.

And I am glad you like my mod! :)

Not easily. They are hardcoded into the games code (c#). It would take some effort to edit them. Editing them could cause further issues down the line (compatibility)

Hi!
I have found a bit of a hickup with this mod. Might be some kind of conflict with some other mod but whenever rimworld saves, tech advancing gets hung up on "Read TA_ExposePeople" and retries every other second causing a major interupt. I noticed that this does not occure if I tell the mod what starting senario my colony originates from (tribe, stranded, etc. ).

I hope this helps crush some more bugs :)

EDIT: Same problem occures just minutes after the "fix"... debug log attached

Hey, frokes, thanks for the report, i will look into that issue.

Could you please send me the list of mods that you were using when this happened?
Also, does it only happen when rimworld saves?
In that case, does it also happen when saving manually?
Title: Re: [B18] Tech Advancing (1.8.4)
Post by: frokes on March 11, 2018, 11:42:45 AM
Yes it does indeed always happen at the same time as rimworld autosaves. I cannot tell if that is the case for manual saving, I'm playing on a permadeath map. A mod list is attached.

Post by: GHXX on March 11, 2018, 04:12:56 PM
Frokes, the thing is: My mods code hasn't changed since February since there was nothing to fix, so either Rimworld's code changed OR, another mod might be causing it. Someone else also reported this to me yesterday, I will see what mods you are both using to find potential candidates for that issue. I removed the unnecessary Log lines in the new version (just uploaded it).

This appears to be an issue related to how references are saved, but it's a very minor error as it just doesn't load the key, thus removing it when its being saved again. Ill put up an update in a bit that should prevent the null-entries from being added, thus eliminating the error.

Edit: Update is pushed now.

Can you please include a folder called "TechAdvancing" inside the main archive, that would contain all of the needed folders and files? (about, defs, etc). It's really annoying when you need to extract 50 mods that do this, to then track down the 1 mod that doesn't and simply spits out everything with a wrong path.
Title: Re: [1.0] Tech Advancing (1.8.7)
Post by: GHXX on November 26, 2018, 05:38:57 PM
There is a very good reason for doing it my way:
In the past it broke mods that did Techadvancing/Techadvacning/[Defs, About....] instead of just Techadvancing/[Defs,About]
This way the error is discovered instantly by the user. If i would do it your way then people might have no clue what the issue is.
If you are unpacking 50 mods then you should consider using a batch script or something similar anyway ;)

I just select all and do "Extract here" from WinRar  ;D
Also, I understand your reasoning yet the vast majority of mods are archived in "my way". Github provides a similarly structured archive.


Moreover, got a question about Tech Advancing's second rule (B). For me it never seemed to be working as intended, yet never came to actually ask you about it.

So, I just started a new colony with my 128 mods :) The setting for TA is on auto detect, with all values on default. From rule A it says that the expected level should be Neolithic (which is perfect for what I want). From rule B, the expected level is Undefined (with 50% threshold). With a 1% threshold it gets to Industrial  :o  even though the tech level is set to increase by 0 (default). With 3-18% it gets to Medieval.

What I don't understand is how rule B works together with rule A. In my mind they should be mutually exclusive; if not, then rule B should be considered for each tech level available but, then, the expected level becomes the lowest possible or the highest possible? E.g.: I researched over 1% of all Neolithic techs and the level rises by +0 so it stays at Neolithic; same for Medieval and Industrial; so should the colony's level become Neolithic or Industrial? Considering this in conjunction with rule A (i.e. must finish all research of a tech level to advance to the next), it should be Neolithic. Yet, on the AutoDetect rule, my colony's level is set to Industrial.

Hopefully I'm making some sense.

PS: is it possible to include in your mod a way (i.e. slider) to modify the cost increase for research items that are higher than the current tech level? Right now it seems to be capped at 200%. I would love to have one slider for a fixed increase per tech level difference (e.g. 50%, like currently) and one for the cap.

Thanks!
Title: Re: [1.0] Tech Advancing (1.8.7)
Post by: GHXX on November 27, 2018, 05:15:30 PM
Ill stick to my archive way, sorry.
Tech advancing sets your techlevel to the best value from any of the 2 rules and the base level. ie. if you got Neolithic (=2), Undefined (=0) and Industrial(=4) then it sets it to industrial (=4).
And if you set it to 1% and you have researched like one industrial project then it will increase it because you likely got less than 100 industrial research projects.

the slider thing may be possible, but since i am pretty busy with reallife right now its something to focus on later. sorry!

Thank you for the explanation. Whenever you feel like modding, could you add an option to either ignore one/both of the rules or to have an option to set the tech level to the lowest of the two rules (for Undefined - use the level from the other rule, or Animal)? Or is the forced Medieval/Neolithic rule button for exactly the same effect?

Title: Re: [1.0] Tech Advancing (1.8.7)
Post by: GHXX on January 02, 2019, 09:58:35 AM
I just checked the code, and it appears that the cost increase was replaced with a change in research speed, which effectively does the same.

EDIT: It appears that Spacer and higher techs are also considered to be industrial. This was the change when moving from A18 to 1.0

EDIT2: Added a setting to restore the vanilla behaviour of A18 and earlier. This is disabled by default, but can be enabled in the settings menu.

Pushed another update which fixes a bug that multiplies research costs by x128 and possibly even more.

Hi GHXX, quick question: I am using the Hardcore SK pack that adds a bunch of new factions to the game, and I was wondering how easy it would be to edit the mod to have a new checkbox where you need a pawn of one of the spacer+ factions in your colony to be able to research spacer techs? Was wondering if the check is based off of the race of the pawn or the tech level of the faction they were originally with, as one of the new factions in HardcoreSK is Asari, but a few of the others are human. Thanks :) EDIT: Didn't make it clear, i'm willing to make this edit myself if possible :)

@Quaaid The existing medieval to industrial+ transition check is based on the faction of the person that joined your colony, so that modders got a choice.
I wasnt planning on locking researches, but it could be interesting to require colonists with the techlevel to research any techs of techlevel X or below - that could be a new difficult increase which some people would definitely enjoy.

I dont have much time right now, but if you want to check out the code, its on github. https://github.com/RimWorldMod/Tech-Advancing
feel free to fork it, play with it and then make a pull-request when you are happy with the result. But please keep in mind that it should be kept simple-ish so its easy to grasp what every setting does.

Anyone tried this with the mulitplayer mod?

About to start a medieval co-op game and would love for this to work. Cheers.

Yes, that would be great, could you add the translation as a pullrequest on the github repo?

Yes sure my steam name is kg_ca_pese. But maybe it will be easier just to send an email, because I have never paid anything on steam, so I didn't spend the 5$ to be able to add friends :-\
