Stop Wasting My Time

Speeds up the game by removing pointless pauses and other time-wasters.
All changes are purely cosmetic.

Updated for Zip mode update!

Combat changes:
  • Removed various pauses:
    • After shooting, throwing grenades, abilities, etc.
    • After getting a kill
    • After going into cover
    • Reanimating corpses and unburrowing chryssalids
    • Revealed enemies cinematic time
  • Removed unskippable Bradford voiceovers:
    • 1, 3, and 6 turns remaining warnings
    • Civilians dying warning
  • Increased Gremlin movement speed by 150%
  • Removed 33% slowdown of enemies not being attacked during overwatch slowmo (enemies being attacked are unaffected)

Non-combat changes:
  • Increased the speed of the Avenger on the global map
  • Reduced the fade-in time of the horrendously slow color picker

I highly recommend also subscribing to IphStich's Instant Avenger Menus mod:
  • No transitions between rooms on Avenger
  • No Hologlobe dissolve animation
  • Faster Avatar Project updates

If anyone finds any other annoying pauses please let me know, I'll look into it.


Classes Overridden (why do I care?):
  • (non-essential) UIColorChip.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_EndCinescriptCamera.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_EnterCover.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_MoveDirect.uc

Thanks to IphStich for figuring out how to speed up the Gremlins (and contributing the code)!
Thanks to tracktwo for figuring out how to shut Bradford up!
Thanks to MINERAL-115, Ttack, and Joshimodo for contributing logos!

@Jin @Shuaguin - That is a well-known bug in the base-game. It was supposed to be fixed in the latest patch, but apparently not.

@Jin Yep it does it for me to damage appears before the explosion. not always but sometimes.

Very usefull mod though

Jin- I often get that as well. Not sure if it's this mod or something else though.

Anyone else getting the bug where explosion dmg appears before actual explosion happens.
I throw a grenade then enemy soldier takes dmg and after that explosion appears

@CocoonMaN I've heard the geoscape lag is because of Perfect Information. Do you have that mod on?

Re: DLC compatibility. I poked @BlueRaja - he made the mod proper, so he is the only person qualified to answer that. The DLC is just cosmetics and new enemy types plus new campaign elements, so it should not interact with the mod and vice versa.

The newest *patch*, however, may have changed some things. I see premature explosions marked as fixed, at least (something people were attributing to game speed).

this works with new Dlc?

My mod that displays time remaining in hours instead of days could also be causing it but I can't imagine why? It's the only other mod I have enabled that interacts with the world mission screen.
