Level Up!

Get notified when pawns level up (or down)!

How to use
Just play like normal. You'll get notified whenever a colonist levels up.
Level up is enabled by default. If you want to get notifications when a colonist levels down - enable it in the mod settings.

- Compatible with RimWorld v1.0 - v1.2.
- Incompatible with Static Quality Plus.

- Safe to add and remove from existing saves.
- This mod is different on v1.0 of RimWorld. Read the Change Notes to learn what has changed.

"My colonist levels up and then almost instantly down again!"
This is caused by a feature in vanilla RimWorld known as skill decay. Skills at lvl 10 and higher lose xp. If xp goes low enough, the skill levels down. The rate of skill decay increases with every level - It is slow at lvl 10, and fast at lvl 20.
This can lead to two problems:

- A colonist on level 10 or higher in a skill she almost never uses will lead to that skill almost always ending up at the very top of lvl 9, because skill decay stops as soon as a skill goes below lvl 10. This means that only a tiny bit of xp is needed to level her up to lvl 10 again, which then goes down to 9 again, and so on.

- A colonist with a high level skill she uses almost all the time will likewise lead to that skill jumping up and down between e.g. lvl 19 and 20.

Level Up! has a cooldown between notifications to make this feel less irritating, but it does not in any way prevent or slow down skill decay. There are other excellent mods that do that though, e.g. RIMMSqol.

I'm not currently making changes to this mod, but being able to change sound is high on the list if I do.

This used to have a louder sound effect, would it be possible for you to add the old sound effect as an option in the mod settings?

This has been added to game in latest update.

Yeah, a Level up-text shows up on the pawn that levels up.

Apparently the new update added some kind of level up alert.

@れPURE い.億KiotheCloud四
Level up notifications stop coming, or one of the features in SQP stop working. I believe it's something to do with passion gain or other leveling related.

is the mod still Incompatible with Static Quality Plus? what happens if I have both of them turned on?

@somr: Tiberium Rim has that, feels like the original Command and Conquer.
