Description
Makes all transitions in the Avenger instant + other time savers. Creates a much smoother experience, particularly on lower framerates.

UPDATED TO SUPPORT WAR OF THE CHOSEN!
For a version that doesn't require War of the Chosen, see here

Changes:
  • All transitions between rooms on the Avengers are now instant
  • Hologlobe dissolve animation has been removed
  • Drastically reduced pauses during Avatar Project updates
  • Instant customization of units, making pre-mission loadout screens much snappier

Fully compatible with Stop Wasting My Time.

----------------------------------------------

Supports Mod Config Menu!

Classes Overridden (why do I care?):
  • (non-essential) XComGameReplicationInfo.uc
  • (essential) XComHQPresentationLayer.uc

Thanks to IphStich for writing most of the original version.
Thanks to Robojumper for fixing the annoying skyranger lift sound bug.

The source code for all my mods can be found on GitHub[github.com]

If you dont activate the "Lost and Abandoned" it will work 100%.

if you activate the Tutorial / Intro mission "Lost and Abandoned", it will skip Central VO about factions and hang after the 1st cutscene (when you enter the bridge to access the Geoscape). the 1st hang, can be skipped with "Esc", the 2nd hang (introducing the blacksite) cant be skipped forcing you to shutdown the game.

If you activate that mission i advise you to just activate the mod after the 1st introductions (but i didnt test that)

i got to this conclusion, by just using the this mod and nothing else after a Fresh recreation of the "Config" folder.

Thank you so much for this mod. I had to turn off Immersive Strategy Layer since I am trying out Covert Infiltration, and the transitions were literally making me feel sick. I was worried I would have to give up on CI for a minute there but now everything works great again!

This mod stopped working and i couldn't figure out why, but it worked 100% again after disabling the Evac All mod

First of all, thanks for this mode, it's awesome!
I have an issue, Instant customization of units doesn't work for me. Did I miss some checkbox or what can be the reason?

If it's helpful to anyone, I had the same issue, with the mod appearing to stop working. I fixed it by closing the game, renaming the config folder in Documents/My Games/XCOM2 WOTC/XComGame/ to something else and letting it recreate it next time I started the game.

Update: I checked all the config files manually and everything looked fine, but I noticed the config folder couldn't be renamed.

After killing all Steam processes and restarting them, I ran the game once with the "official" launcher (that crashed - which is arguably the most useful thing the official launcher can do), and when the game is launched with the AML this mod now works correctly again.

My guess is some file was locked by Steam, so the mod was able to load partially (namely the part that populated the options menu) but not actually being able to hook into the game. No redscreen error messages, though.

Hi. This used to work fine, yesterday it stopped working. I mean, it still loads, the options appear in the mod config menu (and are set correctly), but the animations (namely the hologlobe one) always play now. It's as if the mod is loaded but not actually doing anything.

I've tried unsubscribing and resubscribing, but there was no change. I didn't install any new mods since the last time it worked. And frame rate smoothing (which I know conflicts with some UI mods) is turned off.

Another vote of confidence that this mod is working nicely with WotC. The Geoscape transition is incredibly annoying and I found myself closing my eyes every time to keep my retinas from being shocked by the full-screen white-out. Many thanks.

Just installed this and can confirm it's working as intended (installed half-way through a modded WOTC playthrough). Thanks BlueRaja :)
