Configurable Protect Device

Changes Protect the device objective HP so it scales to a more reasonable HP. Early game 32 HP, Mid game 48 HP, Late game 72 HP. Configurable in INI SteamApps\workshop\content\268500\634951246\Config\XComProtectDevice.ini

Also changes alien relay HP to 6, 12, 18. Configurable in the same file.

This is an improved version of the mod http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=634352787 , this mod will take priority over the other mod so you don't need to enable the other one. The other mod provides more stability because this mod uses a hacky way to manipulate the device HP (referenced from wghost's configurable mission timers mod).

This mod will not update tactical games save properly, it will change the max HP but not the current HP for tactical saves, but it should have no problems for protect device missions that comes after.

WARNING: As any XCOM 2 mods do, saving a game with a mod enabled will cause the save game only work if and only if the mod is enabled, since this is a tactical game mod there shouldn't be missing content after disabling the mod as long as you don't save/load in tactical games, so for now you'll have to use this mod to fix it if you decide to disable the mod http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=619141883

Problems? Follow this guide first! it may solve your problems (applies to all mods) http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=625230005

Compatibility Note:
This mod should be compatible with any mod that don't replace the device object name in these missions. It will only work with 1 'SignalInterceptor'/'DataInterceptor' or 'AlienRelay' Destructible at a time.

Yeah, deleting the Firaxis INIs from the basegame My Games folder won't help if you're playing WoTC

Update: I also just realized by looking through the files it uses a seperate directory, and thus config folder, for "vanilla" xcom2 and WOTC, wonder if that too makes any difference at all.

You know what? that article made me realize I had this mod installed, then when I got WOTC I unsubbed all mods to do a "clean slate". Then got it back later XD

That may not have deleted properly from the .ini, so I should give a try to deleting the config.

Hey so I've found since installing this mod with WOTC the enemy just refuses to attack the relay under *any* circumstances. Not that I'm complaining, as these missions are stupidly frustraingly hard, but I'm guessing that's not the intended effect.
