Scientist Staff Slots: WotC Edition

Converts the Resistance Ring, Psi Lab, and Infirmary slots to use scientists instead of engineers.

Scientists still decrease research time when slotted in.

I wany yo keep the resistance ring using an engineer. I deleated the lines that have resistance ring, but the text still reads out as a scientist when it uses an engineer. Is there a way to change the text for the ring back to wngineer?

Ok so i can confirm this DOES WORK mid campaign. it will instantly show the new scientist slots BUT your engineers will still be assigned in the rooms, so just take your engineer out of the slot and add the scientist.

anyone who wishes to disable certain rooms goto 1123056484\Config\xcomgame.ini and change "true" to "false". also goto 1123056484\Localization\XComGame.int (edit it with notepad) and change rooms you want to still require enginner to EmptyText="OPEN: ENGINEER REQUIRED".

I just wish there was more done with the excess engineers. I mean the longer you draw out a campaign, it isn't scientists spamming the UI. I think a lot of that kind of thing though could be minimized if you could just increase the people spots for most rooms anyway. Like it seems as though you could squeeze about 8 of those slots under each room or so.

@Atrocious well they are still scientist, they can be assigned to the infirmary and still hangout in the labs, checking up on their patient when they need it, or when something goes wrong.

i like the idea that a soldier should be stationed in the ring, the higher his rank the quicker the op is done.

I like the idea, but I also think that there shuld be a downside (i.e. research bonus is lost while the scientist is busy in the rooms). As it is now it's a bit cheesy, because you need less engineers.

The most logical thing for the Resistance Ring, would be that you stationed an officer there, lieutenant or above. But I understand this might be difficult to accomplish, due to how the game mechanics work.

@ Ragic
Now that is a good thought, that's what i want to see really

Psi Labs. Yes. This should be how it works.
Infirmary, as there's only two options which are Scientist and Engineer, it's logical for the Infirmary to have Scientists instead, though maybe they should make it so a Specialist does this instead? Just a thought.
Resistance Ring? Eh, neither seems logical, but tactical data, could work for either.

Agree with PaleFace; I'd love to use something like this, but feel that there needs to be a sacrifice on research time if scientists are being used elsewhere, otherwise scientists become too powerful.

Any way to edit the .ini to make a change like this? Better yet, I'd love it as a settings option.
