Player owned machines will breakdown overtime. Configuration for entities in mod settings. Research available to offset breakdowns. Idle machines should not breakdown. Broken down machines should automatically restart after a cooldown unless destroyed by damage when breaking down
This mod is the opposite of "expensive" recipe and technology settings and reduces the prices of things in the "normal" price settings. Prices are reduced in the same ratio by which they would be increased with the "expensive" settings. Since the "expensive" technology recipes are the same as "normal", this mod simply reduces the technology costs by approximately 4, since the official Marathon settings use a technology price multiplier of 4.
This mod 2x the resources from the smelters (configurable from 1x to 10x: while in the main menu-> settings-> mod settings). This is not for balance but instead just for a faster game with friends. It greatly reduces the requirement to get more mines and makes a new world much faster to start
