Next Gen Evolution

by Qon

Nests absorbing pollution causes evolution to increase instead of when it is produced. An improvement to vanilla pollution evolution behaviour. Default values are balanced to allow you to turn vanilla pollution evolution factor off without changing difficulty but everything is Qonfigurable. Doesn't impact UPS.

Changelog

Version: 1.0.0
  Info:
    - Updated for Factorio v0.18
Version: 0.0.4
  Changes:
    - The mod now only runs once/minute instead of per second. It was running every second for debug
      purposes but it isn't really necessary if you aren't checking your evolution every second so
      it was changed. Now it should actually be 0 performance impact now that the debugging stuff is gone.
Version: 0.0.3
  Changes:
    - The presets now start with the vanilla pollution evolution factor 0 instead of 9 (or instead of 12 for death worlds).
Version: 0.0.2
  Bugfixes:
    - Now should support evolution factor when there are multiple forces killing the natives.
  Changes:
    - Uses the API that was fixed in [0.17.39] https://forums.factorio.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=70801
    - Code cleanup and refactoring.
    - New default values for the different evolution sources.
      Should be somewhat comparable in balance as default settings in vanilla if you set evolution
      due to pollution produced (vanilla map gen settings > enemy > evolution) in map gen settings.
      So it is suggested you turn that to 0 and rely on this mod to evolve them from pollution. But you
      can use both if you want of course.
