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 1-2 second pause after:
    • Shooting, throwing grenades, abilities, etc.
    • Getting a kill
    • Going into cover
    • Reanimating corpses and unburrowing chryssalids
    • Enemies are revealed
  • Removed 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) X2Action_EndCinescriptCamera.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_EnterCover.uc

AML doesn't fix the issue. A couple of days ago it was great, then after the update stopped working for some reason.

@BlueRaja they did an update to the launcher this week, its shared with Chimera Squad now. I think that's what they're referring to

@Rusty: Which update? I did a playthrough 2 weeks ago and it still worked fine.

Anyone having issues with this since the update? I have it enabled but it doesn't seem to be working at all

is there away to remove the stupid Photobooth nagging at the end of every mission? Like yes it was a novelty the first time. I dont want to play collect virtual pinup's of my meat shields.

Got it; thanks!

@Lampros: There are no known crashes caused by this mod (nor were there two years ago). More likely you have a conflict with another mod - check the alternate launcher here [github.com]

I recall this mod used to cause crashes when I stopped playing the game about 2 years ago. Have these issues been addressed?

Does this mod still work? If at all possible it needs to include revealing the lost and every lost slow motion, advant reveal and pointing, faceless reveal, mec reveal and power up, grenade launcher load and fire, and when the drop ship returns to the avenger.
