Description
My personal take on a vanilla Squad Select Screen! Completely built from the ground up!

The very basic idea is that all slots are arranged on some kind of ellipse and you can scroll (infinitely in either direction) when you have more than 6 soldiers to send.

Features:
  • User Interface for more than 6 soldiers. How many? There's no limit!
  • More intuitive with built-in overview!
  • More information: PCS', Health, Abilities (Shows You The Skills), Stats, Armor, Primaries, Secondaries, Pockets...
  • Bad Math and 3000 lines of code!
  • 100% controller compatible!
  • Configurable with Mod Config Menu, but also standalone!
  • Includes a squad size setting!

Not included:
  • A fix for spawn points when you use more than 9 soldiers. See recommended mods below.

Known Issues:
  • Armory Screens reachable from the Squad Select Screen have a Hotlink to Geoscape. DO NOT CLICK IT. IT CAN CAUSE THE GAME TO LOCK UP FROM AVENGER DEFENSE. This is something I can't easily fix.
    THE same applies to a Training Center button. It is not supposed to appear.

How do I increase my Squad Size?

It has a built-in way of choosing the squad size, either via MCM or via the local config file.

If the built-in way of modifying squad size breaks with your setup, you can disable it in XComGame.ini

FAQ:
  • How do I increase my Squad Size?
    • See above.
  • Why does this not include a Spawn Point fix?
    • I wanted to make it as compatible as possible. Since other mods are addressing this issue, I didn't add it.
  • I don't have MCM. How do I configure the mod?
    • Start the game once. It will create a file: "C:/Users/%USERNAME%/Documents/My Games/XCOM2 War of the Chosen/XComGame/Config/XComrobojumperSquadSelect_NullConfig.ini". There you can adjust the same values exposed to MCM.

Thanks:
  • Highbob for ShowMeTheSkills, ideas of which I borrowed
  • LeaderEnemyBoss for ShowMeTheSkillsRevived, ideas of which I borrowed
  • DerBK for ABA2, because the mod is balanced around 6-8 soldiers. Without it, this mod wouldn't exist!
  • xylthixlm for helping me with some math.
  • All other modders who had to hear my random ramblings about the mod and provided feedback
  • .vhs for upgrade icons and the thumbnail. It's great, don't you think?

I am using this mod with max 12 soldier (including the GTS upgrades) squads with no problems so far. I have read that there is a 4x4 spawning area which means the max number of soldiers (incl VIPS, volunteer, doubleA) are limited to a max of 16? Am I right?

Let's say I edit the files to start the gatecrasher mission with 20 rookies, 4 soldiers would spawn on another location? (also using the allow for larger squads mod from pixalation)

And afterwards, staying with the 20 soldier squad setting, can the squad select menu support it? Or rather, what's the max number the squad select menu can support?

@robojumper
Could you pls send me an answer? There is a bug, sometimes, when having squad size set to 10 and more some soldiers don´t have any HUD info above their heads in tactical missions:
Just see it yourself:

Yes, i can see the values about health etc with help from F1 mod, but there isn´t any info about shield values, so it´s too complicated for me. IS there anything I/you can do for fixing it pls?

broke on me mid campaign after a single crash during squad select, cleared config and resubbed, still did not fix it for me that usually does the trick :(

I love how this breaks on me after saving and coming back to play it later

I don´t know if this issue is related to this mod, but after changing squad size to 15 there are sometimes overhead icons (with (only) soldier names and HP icons ) missing. Has somebody experienced the same bug with this mod pls?

Hello! I think this might be unrelated to your mod, but there's a mod where your character's show up as a header while on any map. That's the mod I'm looking for and can't find it anywhere. If anyone knows what I'm talking about please link it for me. Thanks in advance!
