Tech Advancing

This mod advances the Tech-level of the colony once certain conditions are met. Even including rules that can be customized.
Also allows you to:

• Scale the cost of all techs
• Scale the cost of techs that are above your techlevel
• Apply a discount for techs that are below your techlevel

All those features are customizable too!

When does the Techlevel get improved?

Once one of the two Conditions(either A or B) is fulfilled:
Condition A: If you researched all projects of techlevel X and below , then the techlevel rises to X+1
Condition B: If you researched more than 50% of the projects with the techlevel Y, then the techlevel rises to Y

How to install:

Subscribe to this mod.
Rimworld should now download the mod.
Go to the Mods menu, and enable Tech-Advancing.

You can configure the whole mod by accessing the configuration-menu. You can open the menu by clicking on the config button below the research-progress-bar. Alternatively you can access it through the mod-options menu.

Is this compatible with the Freya storyteller? She locks the tech to Medieval but does that override the tech advancing?

Alright, glad its figured out now.
Bud Nov 14 @ 1:03pm 
many apologies... it, well, it's embarassing but it seems when i wanted to change one setting i changed the advancing one instead. again many apologies...
GHXX  [author] Nov 14 @ 7:25am 
What is the base techlevel, according to the techadvancing settings panel? Possibly it detects it wrongly
Bud Nov 13 @ 7:07pm 
as i said i am currently in a modded NB that started at neolithic
GHXX  [author] Nov 13 @ 4:06pm 
why is your current techlevel medieval? Naked brutality starts out with industrial as far as i know.
Bud Nov 13 @ 3:30pm 
but my current tech is now medieval rather than industrial? as far as i'm aware all my settings are default
GHXX  [author] Nov 13 @ 4:40am 
it will be the same for medieval, unless you tweak the rules. Your techlevel will only advance if any of the rules' techlevel result is higher than your base techlevel (industrial in your case)
Bud Nov 12 @ 6:49pm 
well okay. i'll be back if it's the same for medieval? though i've already looked at the settings part in the research menu
