Adding Research Affects: Is it possible?

Postby ChristianLJB » Thu Dec 17, 2015 3:13 am

Forgive me if what I'm asking is silly, as I haven't had much experience modding this game yet :(

In game, there are research options under finance which allow you to change the tax rate to as low as 1%.

Is there a way to add a custom affect like this to a custom research? For example:

> I add a research option named "Prisoner Reform Grants" (or something along those lines).
> Intended affect is to change all of the reform costs to a lower amount.

Although I'm no expert at coding/programming, I am somewhat familiar.

Any information with respect to this is much appreciated, even if this isn't possible :)

Although it is not currently possible, the modding api IS being expanded and this may well come soon.

Check the following links for more details about the expansion:
A post in the PA Modding forum regarding the modding api.
If you haven't already seen it, the IV AMA on Reddit (dec 3). Has quite a few questions regarding the modding api.

Ah, thanks for the reply!

It's a shame this kind of thing isn't already possible.

I guess I was just spoiled by the layout of Rimworld's files when I began modding about a year ago :D
