I have been working on a new mod that overhauls the default software types and updates name generation. Currently, only Operating Systems and 2D Editor have undergone significant changes. Once the default software types are updated, I will start adding more new software types.

There are some known issues with the new name generators mixing with the base game generators. I'm still looking into why it is doing that, but it may be an Alpha 9 bug. There is also a known issue where the AI creates far more game engines than is necessary.

I'm currently looking for feedback on any bugs, text errors, or imbalances you may encounter.

Code: [Select]

>=====[ March 10, 2017 ]====================================[ v0.21 ]=====<

  - Updated contracts development time due to improvements in 9.5.1 patch.

>=====[ March 08, 2017 ]====================================[ v0.20 ]=====<

  -  Revamped the feature set of the 'Office Software' software type with
     45 features, including 2 new research features.
  -  Improved the name generator for the 'Office Software' software type.
  -  'Office Software' now unlocks in 1981.
  -  Updated unlock dates and dependencies on several features from the
     'Operating System' software type to improve compatibility with other
     software types.

>=====[ Initial Test Release ]==============================[ v0.10 ]=====<

  -  Added 2 new personality types: Apathetic and Easy-going
  -  Added 2 new scenarios... a "sandbox" type scenario, and a "standard"
     starting scenario with a maximum starting cash of $15,000.
  -  Added 'Server' category to 'Operating System' software type.
  -  Improved some default Name Generators and added one for the new
     OS 'Server' category.
  -  Drastically revamped the feature set of the 'Operating System' and
     '2D Editor' software types with 158 new features.
       -  Note: Other mods that have dependencies from the base game
          software types may cease to work.
  -  18 new researchable features provide new opportunities to generate
     revenue from royalties.
  -  Somewhat balanced the time required to develop operating systems.
     It is now more realistic, with longer release intervals after 1995.

If anyone is interested in helping with this mod, I am not familiar with 3D editing features. So I am looking for someone who can compile a list of realistic features and introduction dates for the 3D editor. The goal is to provide at least 30+ features, some of which will likely include those already in the base game. You can message me on this forum or on Reddit if you're interested. You will be given credit and an opportunity to help test the build(s) you helped with before it is available here or on Steam.
