[WOTC] New Promotion Screen by Default

Subscribed

Description
This will only work with War of the Chosen!

Description
War of the chosen has two promotion interfaces. The old and trusted two column one and the slick new horizontal one that you get for Resistance Heroes and from the Training Centre. This mod eliminates the use of the old promotion interface for visual consistency.

You must have built a Training Centre in order to buy abilities with points. Without it it will simply allow you to select rankup abilities.

As a consequence SPARKs can now buy extra skills with XCom AP like a normal soldier could. They don't gain a line of XCom Abilities though.

Psi Operatives keep their old upgrade screen because they have their own unique promotion system.

Known Issues
Entering the promotion screen while on the gamepad control scheme crashes the game.

Compatibility
This mod overrides UIArmory_PromotionHero and will almost certainly not work with any other mod that overrides it.

Configuration
You can edit the XComPromotionUIMod.ini file to change some options.
* Setting APRequiresTrainingCenter to false will let you spend AP on abilities without needing to build a Training Center
* Setting RevealAllAbilities to true will show you abilities that would normally be hidden because a soldier lacks the ranks.

Custom Classes
This mod will try to look at a class' ability data and try to switch between 1, 2 or 3 abilities per rank automatically. However if that is not enough or not working as you need it you can manually override this behaviour with a .ini setting. Additionally you can change the cost of specific perks for a class.

Read this topic for details.

Credits and Thanks
* Robojumper who helped get this started, helped solve bugs and who is just generally a very helpful person to other modders.
* Musashi who contributed the additional abilities per rank and brigadier rank support.
* GingerAvalanche who contributed a compatibility feature for other mods who inherit from PromotionUI classes

@XxMrHollywood
Can you provide steps to reproduce the issue?

Mod looks very well done, and is required for a lot of custome classes.

I play with a gamepad though :(

Hope the crash fix gets implemented soon, thanks!

I have the same issue, i think its related to the Brigadier rank which doesnt exist

@MoonWolf, great job of this mod! However I encountered an issue, not sure whether it's related to this mod. My colonels can still get promotion notifications after missions, which they are not supposed to. The promotion does not grant them more AP since they alr reached highest ranks. Any idea why the promotions are popping out?

@MoonWolf
Check the Templar
The controller keeps going down
And use Smooth Scrolling

I'm sorry you seem to be having issues while using a controller. I just now finished double checking and I cannot seem to replicate any controller issues.

I suspect that either your version is outdated and you should force steam to update the mod or some unfortunate combination of mods is causing issues.

Do not use this mod
When I use the controller
This MOD will cause stuck

If I had to narrow my mod list down to 10 mods only, this would be in them. After using this, I simply cannot go back to the old, outdated 2-column rank screen.

@Lord Rowyn: Are you using "Classless"? Because that is known to break the tutorial promotion.
