This mod is intended to be used with the True Endless Speed by Baraquoi as that mod increases the stars required to progress through each era; and so also extending the turn length of each era. However, True Endless Speed is not required to run this mod.
For the changes, I had the Gregorian and Holocene calendars' years elapsed per turn edited for a set amount of turn periods to enable a more realistic progression of years throughout the eras. By default, the amount of years elapsed per turn typically decreases over periods; where those periods are each a set amount of turns. Example: the first 30 turns of the game may have 500 years elapse each turn and then for the 20 turns after that, may have 200 years elapse instead, and so on and so on.
Shown in the images for this mod are the default values and the new values aforementioned for each calendar. In the case anyone else is interested in developing their own calendar progression mod to work with the True Endless Speed mod or the Endless speed in general, I determined that the factors for which the number of turns and years per turn increase and decrease, respectively, for each turn period in Endless speed is 4.22 and 3.99.
The factors I mentioned are important as when editing the values for the calendars in the mod editor, the values themselves are represented as Standard speed values; and so you can multiply the number of turns that you enter by 4.22 to determine how many turns make up that period in Endless speed. While, for the years per turn you would divide what you enter for its value by 3.99 to determine how many years will elapse per turn in Endless speed.
WHEN ENABLING THIS MOD IN THE GAME, ENSURE IT IS LAST IN YOUR LOAD ORDER TO OVERWRITE ANY CHANGES BY OTHER MODS TO CALENDARS. DOING SO SHOULD ENSURE COMPATIBILITY WITH MOST IF NOT ALL OTHER MODS THAT INCLUDE CHANGES TO CALENDAR PROGRESSION.
