  • Doesn't override any Classes, should be compatible w/ everything more-or-less.

  • Requires the X2WOTCCommunityHighlander in order to add some items to the loot pool.
  • May be incompatible with some mods that alter the loot table, such as Loot Pinatas or Grimy's Loot, needs more testing.
  • Doesn't override any Classes, should be compatible w/ everything else more-or-less.

Known Issues
  • The Panic Effect on Alien Ruler Armors can trigger on the Old World Medal and Crystallized Meld Sight Radius bonuses, meaning aliens can get panicked even if they don't see your unit. Don't think there's much I can do about this w/o altering the Ruler Armor Abilities, which is beyond the scope of this Mod and could create compatibility issues.

  • Nothing.

Would it be possible to add the path to the mod folder in the description please?

what stat boost does the MELD give?

@silverleaf1 Thanks for the feedback. Yeah, some of the Trinkets are meant more for flavour than anything else. Not planning any updates atm, but being able to disable individual Trinkets is a good idea, I'll note it down.

@TheNiTrex I used this mod in a couple of campaigns. I used some items a lot and other items very little. An easy way to disable individual trinkets would be a nice feature, especially if additional trinkets are added later.

@NoOne_ReaVen Sorry for the late reply, but yeah, it's probably some sort of conflict with loot pinatas or Grimy's Loot. Try launching a test campaign w/o them and see what happens.

Great Mod, hope you keep up the great work.
NoOne_ReaVen Mar 23 @ 7:55am 
I dont know if it is me being metally challenged again, but the game is dropping me loot table load failures into the logfile and in all of my test campaigns no loot will ever be dropped, does any one know what could be happening here, I cheked the mod conflicts via AML but there was nothing shown in terms of conflict, im running loot pinatas WOTC, Grimy Loot mod WOTC and the XCOM Trinkets.

@Rawmark001 Haven't exposed that option through configs. Might get around to adding it later.

Is there a way to make them sellable on the Black Market?
