Mad Skills

A barely visible little something (so tiny!) that allows you to tweak or completely turn off natural skill degradation and learning saturation. Comes with following tweaks (available in Options -> Mod settings -> Mad Skills):
    Decay multiplier: set to 0 to turn off skill decay, or to (nearly) any value to multiply default decay by!
    Tiered: experience will be lost as per multiplier, but only to around 1% of what's required to next level, meaning that once a level is attained skill won't degrade below it.
    Over-limit multiplier: multiplies XP earned over the daily limit (learning saturation), set to 100% to disable daily XP limit altogether.
    Daily XP limit: controls how much learning is too much.
Doesn't require starting a new colony.

I appreciate why the developers put skill decay into the game and I know the improvement that comes from leveling skills is logarithmic (eg. the chance of botching a surgery goes down by 10% when you level doctoring from zero to one, but it only goes down 0.5% when you level it from nineteen to twenty), but BLOODY HELL it's so annoying to check on a pawn with a maxed skill to see they've lost multiple levels over the course of a couple days or weeks.

Therefore, I appreciate this mod even more; especially given how configurable it is.

Ill be honest this mod is confusing, Im not a dumb fuck but trying to adjust the values and understand what the change outcome will be is confusing so ive left it at default.

I do not know why they implemented it anyway. Good job.

Pretty sure droids gain no skill so you can't really multiply 0 by anything.

@The meme guy: I took a peek at Androids and Alien Races Framework sources, can't seem to find anything that could cause problems. You'll have to be more verbose: post modlist, mod settings, logs, etc. (Please use Pastebin or Gist or equivalent.)
