True Primary Secondaries [BETA]

Experimental new version of Primary Secondaries

Please read the description before using this mod!

This mod requires the WotC Highlander and the Ability To Slot Reassignment mod to work. Dont skip the required items!
Dont run this mod together with the old PrimarySecondaries mod. If you use this one deactivate the old one.

So what is the difference to the old Primary Secondaries you might ask yourself.

The old Primary Secondaries mod is generating primary versions of secondary weapon templates. This resulted in some issue like duplicate variants of unique weapons and
the need of attaching upgrades to primary and secondary weapons separately.
It also caused various issues with mods that have single build items like Covert Infiltration and LWOTC.

The new version allows you to equip the exact same melee weapons and pistols/autopistols in the secondary and primary slot.
So e.g. with this mod if you equip the chosen katana in the primary slot you wont be able to equip it in the secondary slot since you have only one unique item you can equip in either slot.
If you have upgraded a pistol with some weapon upgrades you can now just remove the pistol from a secondary slot of a soldier and give it to another soldier in the primary slot.

Sharpshooter, Rangers, Specialist, Grenadier and PsiOperative are enabled to use primary melee weapons, primary pistols and templar sidearms.


Do i need to start a new campaign when switching from the old primary secondaries mod?
Its recommended, it might work for running campaigns as well but i dont take any responsibility if this causes issues.

Do mods that require primary secondaries work with this version as well?
All of my and iridars like dual wield melee and dual wielded pistols mod are updated to support the new version but keep in mind that this is a experimental BETA so there are probably some bugs and glitches i havent catched yet.

RPGO is complaining that it needs Primary Secondaries after i switched to this version
You can safely ignore that warning for now.

I play with RPGO, do i also need the Ability To Slot Reassignment mod?
Yes its needed and it is fully compatible with RPGO.

Known Issues

- True Primary Secondaries currently doesnt work in skirmish mode. Support for that will be added soon.

hey, does anyone experience game crashes on the startup with this mod? checked all my other mods, for some reason when I start the game just with this mod + highlander + ability to slot, it doesn't start at all

So I switched to this from the other version and now I can't reskin any weapons that were enabled for the primary slot while I could with the other version.

Both primary secondary mods are a horribly buggy mess - grenadiers fire dozens of grenades with their cannon, all icons are duplicated, etc. Guess I am going to have to write off this modded playthrough as a lost cause.

Any mods that require the old Primary Secondaries mod can use this one just fine.
many mods still use the old one and nowone updated them anymore so idk what to do with all those mods I want to run

@Verroak Krasha Classes can only use weapons their assigned to use, Prof was not designed with primary pistol weapons in mind and are thus not supported by default, you have to add them manually to that mod's class data.

@Mushashi when I switched to this mod I can no longer mod my secondary. It says "requires continent bonus."

Tried using it with proficiency classes, swords and pistols don't even show up on the list of primaries. Not even "ranger only" (which shields from a different mod have). As far as I can tell, this mod had zero effect.

Using TPS I have no animations for samurai and stormrider classes
There is no such problem with the original mod, strange.. :(
