Description
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.

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 )

@Smokinginabong: Nothing that rings a bell, I can use the spark in all successive missions after Gatecrasher without problem.

@One Eyed Jack: Not right now unfortunately, its hard coded to only add a single SPARK.

For some reason i start with only the spark on my first mission , any clue wtf is wrong? this mod look great i wanna play with it

So this mod is so great. Love having one in my squad to start.

Here's a question: is it possible to have more than one to start? 2, 3, or even 4?
