Interesting! It really felt missing. I hope you didn't lower the strting crafting speed, it's slow enough as it is...

Maybe power armor tools that do the same thing?

Impossible to make it for powered armor, same with manual mining. Unfortunately, those functions are bound to the force, so unless each person was on their own team, causing its own problem, that can't be done. Otherwise It would already be part of my Modular Armor mod.

Those upgrades seem a bit cost heavy compared to standard techs.
Early techs seems on pricey side but manageable. Further out count seems to be increasing quite quickly.

I agree. Last tech costs 9000 of each, which, compared to the vanilla robot count, which is clearly an end-game tech, caps at around 2000 or so.

Last tech of this could cap at 2000, which might be reasonable, but 9000 is a bit excessive.

I see you are also using science cost tweaker :D

I like the idea of this mod. It's nice to have more things to research that are truly optional. Nifty little bonuses that you might or might not decide to go for, in any given game, depending on your situational needs.

If you don't like the cost, you don't have to research it!

I have found that for me, late game... i run out of things to research, and the game quickly loses some fun. I keep these upgrades as quite expensive, so that there is more to research, at a higher cost, to keep your factory running longer.

If you looked at the reply to that post, you would both know that I had unintentially reactivated science tweak, which increases science costs globally.

And the point I was originally trying to make, using originally flawed information, was that the tech was more expensive than vanilla techs by a significant amount, which made it not fully fit in with the game.

And yes, if you don't have to research it, since it is a candy-tech, not a core-tech.

I've rebalanced this mod to be much more reasonable and useful. Here are the costs and benefits:

Level 1 - 100 Red - 1.25x Speed
Level 2 - 150 Red - 1.5x Speed
Level 3 - 200 Red - 1.75x Speed
Level 4 - 100 Red/Green - 2x Speed
Level 5 - 200 Red/Green - 2.25x Speed
Level 6 - 400 Red/Green - 2.5x Speed
Level 7 - 100 Red/Green/Blue - 3x Speed
Level 8 - 150 Red/Green/Blue - 3.5x Speed
Level 9 - 200 Red/Green/Blue/Alien - 4x Speed
Level 10 - 400 Red/Green/Blue/Alien - 5x Speed

Here's a chart of how many "units" of stuff each level costs. It has a nice, smooth logarithmic curve.
