Additional Banter

Description
Adds over 400 new start of mission banters between agents. Special focus on agents that have few or no banters in the vanilla game (e.g. Central, Monst3r, Sharp, Prism, and the DLC agents.)

Content:
- New banters for basegame agents
- New banters for DLC agents, including group banters as a "collect the PEIA" special
- Old banters for mod agents from Agent Mod Combo by Shirsh and several new ones
(Note: The Agent Mod Combo no longer contains banters of any kind! They have all migrated here.)
- Banter for Sombra from the Talon Recruitment mod by Puppetsquid
- Banter for Carmen Sandiego from the Carmen mod by wodzu_93 and myself
- Banters for the Age of Lever agents by wodzu_93
- New datalogs (which can be collected from data bank side missions if you have the DLC)

How to install:
Hit subscribe (on this mod and Sim Constructor), launch game, go to Options, Gameplay, click Refresh Mods, restart game. When starting new game, make sure to set banter frequency as you like it under the new generation option.

Non-Steam version:

REQUIRED:

This mod requires Cyberboy's Sim Constructor. Your game WILL crash at startup if you add the banter mod without installing Sim Constructor.

@Pikoki
If this still matters to you, you can disable Central's dialogues and agent banters separately with this revamped No Dialogues mod: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1719541462

@Pikoki, no problem. As for compatibility with No Dialogues, you'd probably have to ask the maker of that mod for it: No Dialogues disables operator pop-up messages on a blanket basis, so it affects Central's chatter as well as (only the first person speaking in) agent banters and doesn't distinguish between them. I don't really see a neat way to add in support for it from my end.

Hi Hekateras,

Thanks for going above and beyond for this - it's worked :D!

Pikoki, Generation Options+ isn't my mod, so I don't have any control over which option is set to default there. However, it's quite easy to tweak it on your own.
1. In your mods folder (in the II install directory), find the folder for Generation Options+, it should be titled "workshop-588953061"
2. unzip scripts.zip, open modinit.lua in Notepad, Notepad++ or some other text editor
3. Find this bit: https://imgur.com/a/LywSNZV You see where I circled value=0.2? That's the default option. Change the 0.2 to a 1. Hit save.
4. Re-add the modified modinit.lua to scripts.zip. Now, when you launch the game, that option should be set to 'always' by default.
5. (Bear in mind that the next time you 'refresh mods' from the game menu, the change will be reset.)

Hi Hekateras,

Under the "Generation Options+" section, I always have to up the Agent Banter option up from normal to always, but I'd have liked it to remember my choice.

I realise now that it may not be something you can do in this mod though haha

Hi @Pikoki, thanks for the feedback
- It's possible. Which option(s) defaults do you think should be changed?
- I'll look into it!

Hi Hekateras, thanks for taking the time to make this!
I would like to ask 2 things:

- Is it possible to change the default option for the mod? It'd save some time from reselecting the options each time I restart a run haha

- It seems that when used with the "No Dialogues" mod, the banter understandably gets cut too. Do you know if there a way to work around this to use the "No Dialogues" mod to stop story dialogues, but use this mod to keep the banter?

@GiantBlargg
Thanks for the heads up. It looks a lot like the 'hotfix' Klei was talking about was removing the non-repeating nature of banters altogether. I've removed that feature from the banter mod for now, just refresh the mod for the change to take effect in your existing save file. I haven't been able to reproduce the bug, but this should take care of it until we can find a better fix.

Something I forgot to add to the description: there can never be enough banters (and some agent combos are still banter-less even with this mod). So Kalir, if you have banters you've written you would like to share, please send them to me on Steam or on Discord. Future updates are planned for this mod where even more banters would be added.
