Evolution Reduction via Destruction 1.1

by De7ilx

Have you ever wondered how distroying alien spawners ended up helping the aliens evolve? Or have you ever wanted a way to reduce the alien evolution factor? Or do you sometimes want to be left in peace to build your factories, but find peaceful mode a little too easy? This MOD solves these problems :) Destroying alien bases will reduce alien evolution This MOD is designed to introduce a new difficulty level between Peaceful and Normal

Destroying alien spawners or worms will reduce alien evolution.

Creates two new difficulty levels between peaceful and normal difficulty.
to choose between the two difficulty levels, edit config.lua line 10, ALIENS_GEARING_FOR_WAR = true/false
set to:
false - for easy difficulty, but more action than peaceful
true - for easier than normal difficulty, but ramps up during the course of play

Change Log
1.1.0 - Updated to 1.1 by De7ilx.
1.0.0 - Updated to 1.0 by De7ilx & Kobol added the mod settings menu (Notes: https://mods.factorio.com/mod/Evolution%20Reduction/discussion/5f48131bfc56aff0abe9989d).
0.18.0 - Updated to 0.18 by De7ilx.
0.17.2 - Added the Vanilla value back. It was reduced 60 times since 0.17 in vanilla.
0.17.1 - Removed 133% evolution gain factor since it became broken and evolution were generated way too fast. Now it is just Vanilla.
0.17.0 - Updated to 0.17 by De7ilx.
0.16.1 - Supports Rampant now! Removed some of the logic behind different enemy sizes vs different reduction. Now it reduces the same amount no matter how big or small the enemy is. Still, it is harder to reduce evolution the higher the evolution is. Should work with any mod that changes the enemies. Hopefully.
