Description
OVERVIEW
This mod adds a way to develop soldiers' stats by executing certain actions during combat or by performing well on the battlefield. It also disables the Covert Actions stat boosts because I dislike their randomness and their OPness (you can enable them in the config file).

As of this version, it is possible to increase the following stats: Aim, Hacking, Mobility, Will and Combat Intelligence. It is also possible to gain extra XCOM Ability Points by getting an "Excellent" or a "Flawless" rating on a mission.

FEATURES

Aim Stat
Refer to the aim stat discussion for all the details.

Hacking Stat
Refer to the hacking stat discussion for all the details.

Mobility Stat
Refer to the mobility stat discussion for all the details.

Will Stat
  • Increase the soldiers' will stat by getting an "Excellent" or a "Flawless" rating on a mission
  • By default, getting an "Excellent" or a "Flawless" mission rating grants respectively +1/+2 will
  • Injured soldiers will not gain a will boost
  • By default, the maximum value for the will stat is 100
  • The stat boost values and the maximum value are configurable through the config file. It is also possible to disable this feature for each mission rating independently

Combat Intelligence
  • Increase the soldiers' combat intelligence by getting an "Excellent" or a "Flawless" rating on a mission
  • By default, getting an "Excellent" or a "Flawless" mission rating grants respectively a 10%/20% chance to increase CI
  • This feature is mutually exclusive with the Ability Points reward
  • The chance to increase CI is configurable through the config file. It is also possible to disable this feature for each mission rating independently

Ability Points
  • Gain XCOM ability points by getting an "Excellent" or a "Flawless" rating on a mission
  • By default, getting an "Excellent" or a "Flawless" mission rating grants respectively a 90%/80% chance to gain AP
  • By default, "Excellent" missions grant +2 AP and "Flawless" missions grant +5 AP
  • Having the Resistance Order "Trial by Fire" active will double the amount of AP rewarded
  • This feature is mutually exclusive with the Combat Intelligence increase
  • The chance to gain AP and the AP reward values are configurable through the config file. It is also possible to disable this feature for each mission rating independently

The configuration file should be in the following location:
<Your Steam Install> \steamapps\workshop\content\268500\1337050242\Config\XComWOTC_SoldierDevelopment.ini

TODOs
High Priority
  • Add ways to increase Psi Power
Low Priority
  • Add ways to increase Health
  • Add ways to increase Dodge

KNOWN ISSUES
  • Overwatch and Killzone aren't supported for the aim boost

COMPATIBILITY
This mod should be compatible with almost everything and you should be able to add/remove it mid campaign without any problem.

No class override.

CREDITS
I am not a programmer thus I learned how to make this mod by checking what others did. I used the following mods to learn how to make Soldier Development:
  • Dynamic Stats Development by Rivva
  • Flawless by krj12
I would also like to thank the following persons:
  • Robojumper for helping me with the code to disable the Covert Actions stats boosts
  • .vhs for making the thumbnail picture

I noticed there's a value for will boosts on good/fair/poor missionss. Would inputting a negative value correctly lower the soldier's will, or would negative values still only apply to soldiers who aren't injured? My aim is to make it so missions that go terribly wrong could leave soldiers despondent and broken.

also where do i edit in the ini to re-enable covert actions stat boosts, and disable stats development of aim/hacking/mobility???


i like the potential of this mod, but only for the boosts of combat intelligence, will, and AP...

compatible with overflow ability points mod?

This is a MUST HAVE mod, the little earned boosts really helps when used in conjunction with difficulty mods.

Also, it works together with FLAWLESS.

There's 16 pages of Comments to go through so I'm not gonna comb through them all but I noticed on your To Do that you want to put in a way to increase Psi
I was thinking you might try varying chances based on the usage of skills + Number of enemies hit by them.
For instance, Soulfire / Statis would provide low chance
Insanity / Domination would provide middling chances
The line attack (can't remember the name) would provide the same chance as soulfire augmented by the number of enemies hit
and void rift would provide much higher chances, say, by breaking concealment on a pod with a rift, because of the number of enemies hit individual effects applied by the casts on those caught within

a ingenious idea
