Long War Leader Pack

By Pavonis Interactive

This mod adds a development path for XCOM soldiers in the Guerrilla Training School, allowing them to train special perks that benefit the entire squad. But only one leader at a time can go on a mission, so be careful whom you select for the training!

Notes: A soldier must be sergeant rank or greater to train as a leader. Each additional rank above sergeant in their primary classes enables them to train one additional leader level. Each leader level must be trained in the Guerilla Tactics School.

Soldiers entering leader training will have their primary weapon unequipped so others may use it. This mod also clears the current squad to enforce the one-leader-per-mission mechanism; it adds an autofill button that will autoselect your top soldiers in a new squad.

NOTE: IF after an update you are getting issues, you should exit the game and REGENERATE YOUR INI files by deleting all files in \Documents\My Games\XCOM2\XComGame\Config. These will be recreated on your next game start. (Additional tip: You can preserve your options settings by NOT deleting XComEngine.ini in this directory.) Failing that, try steps in the XCOM2 Mod Troubleshooting Guide:


This mod does not support controllers.

DO NOT LOAD THIS MOD WITH LONG WAR 2. Its features are already incorporated.

Errata: sorry, GT facility not AWC

Ive had this mod since. Forever. Likewise my habit of clearing the config folder.
Im loading a save prior to the officer going on a mission...and will attempt to clear the slot.
If that fails ill put the leader pack last in the load order and try again.

So far ive even tried dismissing the officer but the facility leader slot still stuck regardless of load order...regardless of that condescending reference to an irrelevant troubleshooting thread.

Moot point. My AWC slot is not clearing out my first officer from "training"...The lvl1 officer is going on missions, etc...so the officer isnt affected just the slot ...effectively making this mod useless.
Im going to try and see if i can find a work around

query: When a trained soldier gains an officer rank, is it even possible (code wise) to make the officer rank name supercede the normal rank name - and followup: is it possible to make that rank name come with an icon that'll supercede the normal rank icon?

I have. Everything worked fine for me except Collector and Scavenger; as a fairness thing, I just never chose those perks. You do get glitches if you add the mod to a pre-existing save, so don't install it until you're ready to start again.

Well that sucks. I was looking forward to this mod after initially seeing it but after reading the different discussions and seeing that there's about 15-20 reported bugs varrying from stuck leader to complete crash and unable to reload... I think I'm gonna have to pass.

Has anyone actually played successfully through an entire campaign or more with this in it?

Just bringing the Collector and Scavenger perks back into the conversation. They're still bugged, giving many times more Intel and resources than intended - sometimes even ten Intel for a single kill. Multiple pop-up notifications on the side, and it's not just graphical - I really am getting 50+ intel per deployment.

I'd disable the mod if I could, but as it stands I'll probably have to retire those soldiers to keep the game fair...

@Dragon32 thank you!

@Johnny Joestar:
This just adds officer ranks as an option for your troops.

Does this change the combat and other mechanics to be like LW2 or does it just add the class?

Leader Abilities from the Armoury screen.
