Stop Wasting My Time

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

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 some 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


Other recommended mods:


Compatible with Long War 2!

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

I just tried a LW2 campaign and was getting the cinematics, not sure why, trying a vanilla to see if it's something to do with new enemies added

@Michlo If mod features are clearly missing, it is probably not working.

Any way of disabling enemy units pointing? It's yet another waste of time after every turn (especially when said unit is a Faceless), so I'd appreciate this mod even more if such a feature were in play.

Oh and nor is Bradford quiet about civliian deaths during retaliation missions.

Thanks, BlueRaja. It must be a conflict then as I've tried with and without and there is no discernible difference. :(

I'm surprised the ones I have would conflict, though. I have Evac All, Overwatch All and Full Customization of Characters. That's all.

@Michlo: No, it's still working. It may be a mod conflict, or perhaps you just don't notice the changes.

Greetings. Is this supposed to be working now? I just installed it yesterday for the first time and as others have said, I'm not seeing a difference. :(

Was it broken by a patch?
