Disable Timers

A new War of the Chosen compatible version of this mod is available here:

Disables the vanilla game mission timer in most non-story missions. Notable exceptions are UFO and terror missions.
As this removes a big element of the game, you may want to crank up the difficulty a notch to compensate.
This mod does not disable achievements.

If you stumble upon any bugs or missions types that I've missed, please report them in the comments below.

A campaign reset should not be neccessary, but it is recommended. If you decide not to restart, it's a good idea to back up your save before you enable this mod.
You can find your saves at C:\Users\ Profile name \Documents\my games\XCOM2\XComGame\SaveData
Once you save your game with this mod enabled, it will no longer be possible to load the save without it.

Step 2: Edit the Default Turn Timer Value in the Config File

Press CONTROL+F on your keyboard to bring up the search and find function.
Do a search in the XComLW_Overhaul.ini file for the below line of text (it should be around line 1240):
Edit ONLY the last number before the semicolon.
There are four lines, one for each difficulty setting.
The difficulty setting is listed at the end of each line of text.
For example if you want to add 3 turns to all Veteran difficulty mission timers, change the line:
“TimerDifficultyMod[1]=1; Veteran”
“TimerDifficultyMod[1]=4; Veteran”

Step 1: Find and Open the XCOM 2 LW2 Steam Config Files

First ensure that your XCOM 2 game is closed completely. Make sure you have the latest Long War 2 patch already installed. The change we are making here will be overwritten whenever you update Long War 2.

Use your File Explorer (My Computer, Windows Explorer, etc) to navigate to:
X:\[YOUR STEAM INSTALL LOCATION]\SteamLibrary\SteamApps\workshop\content\268500\844674609\Config
In that folder, find the below file (“XComLW_Overhaul.ini”), right click on the file, then click “Edit in Notepad++” (or your desired text editor).
