WotC: Starting Spark

Adds a spark to the starting squad, this mod should therefore only be used when starting a new game.

Note: This has not been tested with Shen's mission (The Lost Towers), and it doesn't fit thematically to do so.

Known bug: The spark isn't shown in the cinematics in the Lost and Abandoned mission, except this it seems to work fine.

@123 nick, it does nothing, you skip gatecrasher, and have a spark right off the bat

how does this work with quicker start, which skips gatecrasher? is there a version of this that just adds 1 spark too the roster after the mission?

The first time I started a campaign with this, Gatecrasher spawned with just the spark and no other soldiers.
If this happens, simply create a new campaign.
Also, if you are using the LW MECs as Sparks mod, you will start out with a 'rookie' spark. No skills (not even fire/poison immunity, this is a bug) and no rocket. But it will promote.

When I tried this with 'random characters' soldier selection the gatecrasher mission only had the spark (which was hilarious because he beat the ever loving snot out of the entire mission all by himself.)

When I go 'character pool only' it runs the spark plus two of my character pool and one random even though I had four in my character pool. A little strange but it seems to work fine otherwise.

My (only slightly modded) game went fine. Started with two Rooks, a Skirmisher (I specified), and a randomized Spark. Also, tested Shen's mission; it work's just fine. Both Sparks can enter gas safely and afterwards you keep both Sparks.

Doesn't work. I have only 3 men without a spark at the start mission.

Does this truly work? The mixed comments are confusing me.

You should have 3 soldiers + 1 spark, or alternatively 2 soldiers + 1 hero soldier + 1 spark
Depending on what boxes you had marked or not when starting the game

@Zamster wait, in the first mission gatecrasher , is it normal that i just have the spark or im suppose to have 3 more rookies? (maybe its a mod that fuck it up, i have another mod that change the spark a bit )
