Default MOD: More Experience [Updated]

As requested, here's a mod that increases experience gains by about 15%. Adjust the values further to suit your taste. [UPDATE] Now works as intended.

Code:
ModMoreExperience overrides GameSystem
{
	XpMultMonsterNormal	1.15	//Default 1.0
	XpMultMonsterCommon	2.30	//Default 2.0
	XpMultMonsterUncommon	3.45	//Default 3.0
	XpMultMonsterRare	4.60	//Default 4.0
	XpMultMonsterVeryRare	5.75	//Default 5.0
	XpMultMonsterUnique	6.90	//Default 6.0
	XpMultMonsterLegend	8.05	//Default 7.0
	XpMultMonsterBoss	28.75	//Default 25.0

	XpBonusWeakRecruits	1.4375	//Default 1.25

	LevelDiscoveryXpMult	2.875	//Default 2.5
	PlanetDiscoveryXpMult	0.0719	//Default 0.0625
	SecretDiscoveryXpMult	5.75	//Default 5.0
	PickLockXpMult		5.75	//Default 5.0
	DisarmedTrapXpMult	5.75	//Default 5.0
	LegendWinXpMult		115.0	//Default 100.0
}
To use, simply download the attached .zip file to your assets folder.

This does not work...! When using this mod my xp requirements for the next level increased significantly.
This would be a better/correct way of doing it:

For a 10% increase:

Code:
ModMoreExperience overrides GameSystem
{
	XpMultMonsterNormal	1.1
	XpMultMonsterCommon	2.2
	XpMultMonsterUncommon	3.3
	XpMultMonsterRare	4.4
	XpMultMonsterVeryRare	5.5
	XpMultMonsterUnique	6.6
	XpMultMonsterLegend	7.7
	XpMultMonsterBoss	27.2
}
However, you will gain levels faster if you decrease the parameters used in the OP.
(this might need some finetuning - and could create some funky results if used on an existing game...)

For example something like this:

Code:
ModMoreExperience overrides GameSystem
{
	XpMultEachLevel1		1.100
	XpMultEachLevel4		1.100
	XpMultEachLevel6		1.100
	XpMultEachLevel11	1.020
	XpMultEachLevel21	1.020
	XpMultEachLevel51	1.020
}
I don't consider the above final or balanced in any way, so use at your own risk!

Hmm. There's something wrong here. I'm getting more experience alright, but it also requires over 5 million experience to reach Level 36. :P

There was an unforeseen interaction. I'll find the problem and fix it on Friday. No time until then, sorry.

So I simply misunderstood what it was I was changing in the original version. That's what I get for not testing my mod. Arcatus' first method is the correct way to increase experience gains, though I expanded it to include all experience gains, not just those from killing enemies.

Arcatus' second method reduces the amount of experience required to gain a level. His attempt however does not preserve the games level balance. A much simpler method that does preserve the games original balance would be as follows:
Code:
ModMoreExperience2 overrides GameSystem
{
	BaseXpNeededEachLevel	2550.0	//Default 3000.0
}
This version of the mod should reduce experience requirements per level by 15%. Adjust as you see fit.

Cool.

And yes I agree, lowering the base is a better way of doing that.

However - my attempt was to add some linearity (should probably have been clearer about that...) to leveling - exponential leveling is just annoying (imho) - I don't like spending a few minutes on the first levels, but a few hours on the late. Grinding is just not my style so it is awesome that it's possible to customize the experience in this game
