Stop Wasting My Time - WotC

Speeds up the game by removing pointless pauses and other time-wasters.
All changes are purely cosmetic.

For a version that doesn't require War of the Chosen, see here

Combat changes:
  • Removed various pauses:
    • After shooting, throwing grenades, abilities, etc.
    • After getting a kill
    • After going into cover
    • Reanimating corpses and unburrowing chryssalids
    • Revealed enemies cinematic time
    • Enemies randomly pointing for no reason
  • Removed some unskippable Bradford voiceovers:
    • 1, 3, and 6 turns remaining warnings
    • Civilians dying warning
  • Removed 33% slowdown of enemies not being attacked during overwatch slowmo (enemies being attacked are unaffected)

Non-combat changes:
  • Increased the speed of the Avenger on the global map
  • Reduced the fade-in time of the horrendously slow color picker


Other similar mods:


Classes Overridden (why do I care?):
  • (non-essential) UIColorChip.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_EndCinescriptCamera.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_EnterCover.uc

Another note on mine not working - this includes a new game started after installing the mod. Broken by a patch, I'm guessing?

Isn't this what "Zip Mode" does? I noticed obnoxious random pauses when I first started playing, went into the options, found Zip Mode and turned it on. Now far less time is wasted, while still retaining some of the time-wasting features I enjoyed from the first game.

I removed this mod because it was causing a lot of lag in combat, but now every time I try to load a game it warns me that the mod is missing. How can I get rid of this nag, anyone know?

I would also love to be able to chose what we skip and what we don't skip

Any chance of adding Mod Config Menu support to this? This mod is almost essential to me, but I wish I could re-enable Bradford's line since I don't like missing dialogue.

When scrolling between soldiers in the training centre / previewing abilities to purchase, can you change it so it's instant and it doesn't have that animation?
