[WOTC] Additional Icons

This mod is solely a port of Grimy's "Additional Icons" mod to work with WOTC. ALL credit for its creation goes to the original author (Grimy). If Grimy returns to XCOM modding and wishes to resume ownership of this mod, then this copy will be removed.

[WOTC] Additional Icons

Introduces 5 new icons:
- Loot Indicator - Marks an enemy with loot
- Damage Icon - Shows the non-crit damage range on the unit's primary weapon
- Aim Icon - Shows the current aim stat of the unit
- Mobility Icon - Shows the current mobility stat of the unit
- Health Icon - Shows the current and max health of the unit.

All icons are optional, and toggle-able via INI.
INI Location:
Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\268500\1127409511\Config\XComWOTCLootIndicator.ini
New INI Options:
- You can display only the current HP (HIDE_MAX_HP = true)
- You can make the loot icon only appear on enemies that have been scanned by battlescanner/scanning protocol


This mod conflicts with any mod that also overrides UIUnitFlag. e.g. Show Health Values, Numeric Health, etc.

It does NOT conflict with Perfect Information or Gotcha Again

Providing Save Game Data For Debugging Problems
If you find an issue where a unit is not rendering its text correctly please provide the following:
- A screenshot or description of the unit
- A save game showing the issue (this part is most important)

The save game data can be generally found at:

C:\Users\<Your Name>\Documents\my games\XCOM2 War of the Chosen\XComGame\SaveData

- Copy the save game in question and upload it to your favorite file share (i.e. Google Drive/Dropbox/etc)
- This save game can be copied even if you are playing on Ironman

Is it possible to only have the loot icon and nothing else – and have this mod compatible with Numeric Health Values? Or is there another mod that only adds loot icons? Any help is much appreciated!

Sal its very likely you have some sort of conflict going on. I tried doing the same thing you are and it works no problem relaunching a new save. The mod still shows everything.

My guess is you have some sort of other mod that is conflicting with this one and overwritting the config file. Make sure you dont have any UI based mods like Tactical Information Overhaul. AML should detect any conflicts however so I really dont know what could be causing that issue.

I can confirm Theocratical Goblin it does work if you follow his steps. I found out if you previously used Tactical Information Overhaul it does prevent this from working if you disabled and uninstalled it to install this.

After following Goblins comment step by step, I have no issue with the mods now. Thanks Theocratical Goblin you are awesome. His comment is 4 down.

If I have any further issues I will update. Thanks for the mod, sadly Tactical Information Overhaul caused massive framerate issues and didnt work on my Steam Deck. This mod works great with no issues.

as previously said by @Theocratical Goblin It work yes but for some reason i have to delete config folder, relaunch base game, then launch with AML for it to work, but i have to do this EVERY time i play and re do the settings. something override everything in the config and idk what, if someone know, let me know :D

Is there a way to change the color of the stat icons? Like the first that is for damage, or the crosshair for aim? I don't like the red... it pops a little too much and I'd prefer the light blue most text/icons use. Otherwise wonderful mod.

it works.
if it doesn't, try this:
1) go to the config file folder of wotc and delete ALL the contents
2) start xcom 2 to have it generate new config files
3) enable all mods through the alternate launcher
4) start xcom 2 again
5) it should work

Also not working for me, frustrating

For some reason both additional icons and perfect information are no longer working for me even if its the only mod enabled. It is sad as either one is part of what i consider core xcom2 modding

Any idea why this mod would suddenly stop working? And reinstalling, deleting or even removing all other mods, can't fix that for some reason..
