256 Recruitment Limit

Description
FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS 256, PLACE THIS MOD ON THE VERY BOTTOM OF THE LOAD ORDER

A mod to increase recruitment and squad limit.

Increases recruitable units from 30 to 256
Increases maximum members in each squad from 20 to 50
Increases maximum number of squads from 10 to 20

That's it. No hidden bee pie in this one, sorry.

**Other mods that change the same variables may interfere with this one. To make sure these are the finalized variables that Kenshi uses, please place this mod on the very bottom of the mod loading order, even if other mods ask you to place theirs on the bottom. Doing so will not cause any disruptions in the operation of other mods - It will only ensure the changes this mod makes are prioritized over other mods changing the same variable.

NOTE:
This is a player recruitment mod ONLY. It does not effect npc squad spawns, numbers, or behaviors in any way.

Disclaimer: Performance!
There is a reason the game is defaulted to a maximum 30 units. Exceed maximum at your own risk.
Many have reported decreases in both fps and AI processing. This is a result of increased entities in your game world taking up more rendering and processing resources. This is normal, and there is nothing I nor this mod can do about that. There are a few things you can do to help reduce the lag, but ultimately it is up to you to find that sweet spot for yourself.

1. Import your game.
If the lag starts becoming too much, try importing your game. This will clear out a lot of the extra clutter of corpses, items, and orphaned/roaming squad units, freeing up more resources for your own squad. (NPC squads take priority with AI processing. The less of them there are, the better your Ai processing will be.)
Please note that this is a temporary remedy, and over time you may start seeing a decrease in performance again. Rinse and repeat as necessary if desired.

2. Reduce NPC squad number and npc squad size sliders.
This will reduce the amount of npc entities being processed, freeing up resources for your own squad. This is a longterm solution but may not be ideal for some people's gameplay, and may still not be enough depending on how many you recruit.

3. Reduce your own squad count.
If nothing else seems to be working, then chances are you've just simply recruited too many units. Reducing your own squad count may be the only way to aid decreases in performance.

for some reason this mod is not working for me

I figured out Kenshi's mod tool and managed to raise the character level cap by 15. I want a HARD cap not 'just stop recruiting'. 256 is a ceiling that's way too high for me, and makes me paranoid Kenshi is going to break or cause my PC to explode. I'd just feel more comfortable if the game shuts off all opportunities to recruit once I hit the limit as well (which is what happens when you reach 30 recruits with no mods)

@Trip Fisk,
This mod shouldn't "shut down recruitment" until your total roster reaches 256 characters. If you're reaching a cap somewhere below that, then the mod is not working, likely another mod you may be using that changes the limit, is lower in your mod list in this one, overwriting the recruitment variable of this mod. Place this mod on the very bottom of your mods list to ensure nothing else overwrites this variable.

For limiting the recruitment below 256, you can freely choose to stop recruiting at any time, and dismiss extra units you acquire to maintain your confortable amount of recruits.

Is it possible to use this mod to just raise the character limit by 20? Concern is performance. I noticed once you hit the cap, Kenshi behaves differently and basically shuts down the ability to recruit including random recruits spawning in bars.
