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

we need noe mod about Game body。
we do not have the XCOM2 colltion.

Ok, I just got the chosen's entrance cutscene. I would guess that problems of that skipping have to do with collision with other mods, which isn't anything i can test. for anyone worring about cutscenes not playing, just be careful which mods you use, and test them first :)

I agree. I like that too

I wish we could tweak the ini and pick and choose. For example, I actually prefer the bouncing effect with sound and tiny delay right before grenades explode in vanilla settings. It's very satisfying.

Sorry if this is spamming your comment section, but as of yet the problem of Mox's cutscene destroying the ADVENT Purifier truck still happened to me unlike what "I trade crates away for rares" had said in his discussion. Will continue with investigation into the chosen's base cutscene tomorrow.

Ok, I will try to do that soon

1. Create a non-ironman game. Have only this mod enabled, or no mods.
2. Get up to the point where some cutscene is skipped, or whatever other bug is happening
3. Make a custom save just before the cutscene
4. Send me the save file

My email is BlueRaja.admin@gmail.com
betaklerik Nov 27 @ 2:42pm 
And how would one go about sending such a save file? (I might sub so I can create such a save file)
BlueRaja  [author] Nov 27 @ 1:41pm 
If it is true, I have yet to see it, or to have anyone submit a save file that reproduces it. If someone can send me a save file that repros the issue, I will fix it.

I'm worried about the same problem, has it been fixed?
