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.

FaQ (the most important questions):

Q: Is this mod compatible with existing saves?
A: Yes it is.

Q: How can I contact you?
A: You can either look for GHXX#9078 on discord, or leave a comment here. Alternatively you could send me a PM on the ludeon forums.

Q: Does this mod work with X and Y?
A: Try it and let me know if it doesn't. I simply cannot try every mod combination, but as far as I know there shouldn't be any incompatibilities.
