Stop Wasting My Time - WotC

In 1 collection by BlueRaja
Quality of Life / UI Improvements - WotC
20 items
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

Thanks to tracktwo for figuring out how to shut Bradford up!
Thanks to MINERAL-115, Ttack, and Joshimodo for contributing logos!

Have it enabled for WOTC, but it's not doing anything?

@BlueRaja, nah, sorry, I just read about it in the discussions so I held off on adding this mod to my list. Has anyone else reported experiencing the same problems, or just one person? Otherwise I may aswell download it to see

@Ferfelende Hun: I still have no reproduction of that issue. If you have a save file that demonstrations the bug (preferably with as few other mods as possible), please send it to me so I can work on it.

So does this mod work or not?

So with "ignore Chosen" ticked in the mod menu, does that mean their spawn cinematics (with the pillar of energy and their strengths/weaknesses) won't be skipped? Or does it literally mean "ignore them"?
