here are the current main points of my mod (based of kudos v1.21):
- reduced the degrading effects, maybe to much - i need feedback
2.several new industries prepared: look at jobboard
3 .the Ecclesiastical industry (weird word … / iam not a native English speaker) is complete with jobs from the acolyte up to the pontifex
- some legal and less legal jobs in security field (unfortunately that locked setting didnt work for me - so you can see those most elite jobs there too)
- in adult-school a dozen of the most spoken language added (will be used later for the embassy type jobs)
- in law school are the courses for most of the church type jobs.
- a few new solo social activities
- two new websites
- lots of new skills and a few new attributes - all made looking nice in strings.ini (i hope)
- removed the call on the gameconsole for that minigame (sorry cliffski - that game ran that fast on my comp - sometimes i couldnt even match one line !) - maybe i should do a copy without the call…
- changed max range of transit types. Added 3 new transit types for increased range. (your own car has 150, taxi (100) rail(200) helo(450))
12.added 2 events - although one wont work as intended, since i dont know how an event can reduce your amount of money.
-the other jobs in the industries
-further rebalancing (…bicycle and dog -> and my fitness was always 100%)
-taking your feedback to good use–<<
->hacking the gui that some text information fits nice (unfortunately i cant do that)
and here the file for the brave ones : freewebs.com/dari/kudos/kudosmoddari01.zip
copy that line into a new browser tab and it will download (the link from forum seems to be broken)
although it does work for me make a backup just in case
have fun and please give me your feedback, errors found (+ spelling errors), cookies, and suggestions.
Happy new year
mod version 2 :
- a)added the business / management style jobs (24) with the corresponding study field in the law college (a few of them are slightly cross-skill like the R&D manager , the CIO , CFO and CEO)
Be prepared to pay top cash to get to it
The tips of these jobs are like variable income - don’t take everything literally.
1.b)and a cross skill job Treasurer of a church in that eccles…(have to find other word for it)
2.added a designer laptop to waste your hard earned money on : beware - if you want only to use the expensive laptop sell your old one first ! else you can not surf the web.
added luxury furniture that gives you a small daily happiness boost at a erm… not-so-small cost.
added a luxury car for that real confidence boost, and lots of cash - unfortunately it cant be used to commute (it looks to be hardcoded to specific items) - but then its just to show your status
tweaked the variables at end of config.txt that should allow a faster degrading of attributes - also added a _DISBELIEF variable if you like to tweak your faith gains and losses
shortened the description of the business studies just to business with roman number - is only visible if you start a new game (unless there is another way of reinitializing the gui)
7: credit to sarah for that confidence mirror dance idea - can i use that like it is now ?
credit to cliffski for the renamed bmp. files i used for the new industries/jobs
and the base of all the included files (since i don’t know other way of releasing - hope you don’t mind it)
compatibility : mod 1 - saves will work - although the few changed names in strings.ini will not be used.

have fun !
oops there is one little bug in \jobs\Business_S6.txt
change the weird looking line with the index number 5 to :
5 = culture,0.01,_JOBXP_DEGRADE
or whatever you desire
This might be a bigger request than I think, so I appologize if it would be a bother or offensive.
I haven’t been able to get your mod to work in my game for various reasons (mostly because I bought an unpatchable version), but going through the files, I think it looks very interesting!! Especially the languages and jobs, because I find the game to be very lacking with some of its options.
I was hoping you might offer up variations on this mod, or to post them on the forum in a way that people can pick and choose aspects of it. Such as, being able to get just the additional jobs. Personally, I don’t like the religious aspect at all, but I thought the legal status aspect could be a lot of fun. Unfortunately, trying to change it myself has only resulted in a disaster so far LOL
As I said, if it would be a pain, don’t worry about it. I just thought it would be nice to get those new jobs and assets and such. Thanks for your time.
sorry but i wont do different version - but you can eliminate some aspects you don’t like by yourself and add your own to it !
i use CSVED to edit things fast ( home.hccnet.nl/s.j.francke/software/software.htm )
if you want to remove the whole church-career then deleting the line with “ecclesiastical” in industries.csv should do it
and also the last 3 line in attributes.csv
and the 6 LAW entries beginning with “ecclaw1” in hook_eveningclasses.csv
maybe you want to delete the bible book or the very very evil web link hehe
(i just wanted to make something unusual - i hope i did not offend someone)
unfortunately the game is not that modular to mod - especially if you have jobs that needs special skills that you sometimes can get only with new activities and for these categories (jobs , skills, activities) is just one file that contains em all - but then a simple cut or append operation (if you know all the dependencies) does the job
have fun !
