[WOTC] New Promotion Screen by Default

Subscribed
Unsubscribe
Description
This will only work with War of the Chosen!

Description
War of the chosen has two promotion interfaces. The old and trusted two column one and the slick new horizontal one that you get for Resistance Heroes and from the Training Centre. This mod eliminates the use of the old promotion interface for visual consistency.

You must have built a Training Centre in order to buy abilities with points. Without it it will simply allow you to select rankup abilities.

As a consequence SPARKs can now buy extra skills with XCom AP like a normal soldier could. They don't gain a line of XCom Abilities though.

Psi Operatives keep their old upgrade screen because they have their own unique promotion system.

Known Issues
Entering the promotion screen while on the gamepad control scheme crashes the game.

Compatibility
This mod overrides UIArmory_PromotionHero and will almost certainly not work with any other mod that overrides it.

Configuration
You can edit the XComPromotionUIMod.ini file to change some options.
* Setting APRequiresTrainingCenter to false will let you spend AP on abilities without needing to build a Training Center
* Setting RevealAllAbilities to true will show you abilities that would normally be hidden because a soldier lacks the ranks.

Custom Classes
This mod will try to look at a class' ability data and try to switch between 1, 2 or 3 abilities per rank automatically. However if that is not enough or not working as you need it you can manually override this behaviour with a .ini setting. Additionally you can change the cost of specific perks for a class.

Read this topic for details.

Credits and Thanks
* Robojumper who helped get this started, helped solve bugs and who is just generally a very helpful person to other modders.
* Musashi who contributed the additional abilities per rank and brigadier rank support.
* GingerAvalanche who contributed a compatibility feature for other mods who inherit from PromotionUI classes

(SEE PREVIOUS POST) - It was the new [WotC] Tank Mod on Steam. The one from Nexus does not affect the Promotion screen. I am hoping to configure the tank mod on my end to make it work.

Is there a list or anyone know what mods might mess with the promotion screen up a little? For me, I just started experiencing some issues. When I go to level them up, the promotion screen spawns in the upper left hand corner away from everything. I can still use it and all, but it slightly annoying. I had this happen with the Starting Psi Amp mod and got rid of it, but now it seems one of my new mods might be causing it. Will be experimenting with it soon.

All ranks show up as Squaddie as well, im using this mod alongside LW2 Classes for WotC

On the promotion screen of my soldiers, they appear in the center, blocking the descriptions of the skills and I can't see what to pick. Does anybody else have a similar problem?

Basic necessity for the game these days. Works perfectly and is just such a huge improvement for the UI. Great work Tzarnal.

@XDGxFallenabsol It could be another mod conflicting with the armory UI edits done by this mod. I had the UNSC pelican mod installed and that was producing the same error you reported.

Once I uninstalled the pelican mod and redownloaded everything else, this mod worked fine.

Getting redscreens on templars with LW2 classes. Posted as a discussion to not pollute comments: https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/1124609091/1679190184074059172/

@XDGxFallenabsol same here. Seems to just show nothing when promoting and showing soldier skills.
