Work Tab

Provides a vastly more customizable work tab.

Work Tab completely takes over job priorities from the vanilla game. In order to support core functionalities and other mods, it intercepts calls to get/set priorities. However, when it is told to set priorities by other modded or vanilla code, that code is not aware of the time schedule, and the priority will be set for the whole day. As such, this mod is currently incompatible with mods that dynamically change priorities (e.g. Force Pawn to do a Job).

Various usability extentions to the ‘vanilla’ work tab;

- Work types can be expanded (by Ctrl+clicking the column header) to allow you to set priorities for the individual tasks within each work type.
- Time scheduler to set priorities for a given time slot only - allowing you to designate a cleaning hour, or have your cook prepare meals right before dinner, etc. etc.
- Up to 9 priority levels (configurable in mod options)
- Various small UX tweaks; scrolling to increase/decrease/toggle priorities, increase/decrease priorities for whole columns/rows (by holding shift and clicking/scrolling while hovering over the column header/pawn name respectively).
- All functions are detailed in the tooltips, take a moment to hover over and read them!

Known Issues
With UI scaling turned on, vertical labels are drawn in the wrong position. I’ve been working on this problem for a while, but have been unable to come up with a solution. Workarounds are to not use UI scaling, or to turn vertical labels off in the mod options. See the issue[github.com] for more details.

With great power comes great responsibility. The default priorities of tasks within a job is set for a good reason; it’s (usually) a sensible default. Changing these can lead to deadlock situations, so change the priorities of individual jobs at your own risk!

Finally, there will never be an ‘autolabour’ mode where a mod sets priorities for you. Due to the way the AI is handled (e.g. pawns actively look for work, instead of there being a ‘bulletin board’ of jobs that need doing), it’s not feasible to get the complete list of work that needs doing that would be needed to make this a reality, without extreme overhead and loads of special exception coding.

I'd also use @talassamic 's preset idea @Fluffy

I would definitely use this mod a lot more if i could have presets or favorites. I have Prepare carefully installed and quite often load in the same group of starting toons.

@Gregch; no.
@Talassamic; Sorry to hear that. Would you use presets or favourites, if they were added?
Gregch Aug 5 @ 5:24am

I love this mod so much. I used to use it a lot more but recently ive been playing quick games and setting everything up in the begining is very time consuming so i havent been using it as much anymore.

Thx Fluffy
I will try

@hergy; there's experimental 1.0 versions for most of my mods on their github pages, see the link in the description.
@Saylor Twift; there hasn't been for a while now. It was buggy, I removed it planning to rework it, but I never quite got around to actually doing that. I might bring it back once my mods are stable for 1.0.
