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) UIColorChip.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_EndCinescriptCamera.uc
  • (non-essential) X2Action_EnterCover.uc

Is there a way to speed up the animations with the resitance maps where the ai turns are at thenormal speed? I feel like it also appeend pre me using lowtc

@Experiments "There's now" implies that's a replacement, but it looks like it does completely different things from this mod (though there seems to be some overlap with "instant avenger menus")

@ZaWarudo: Most mods are not compatible with the community highlander mod. I imagine AML will show conflicts in the conflict tab.

Doesn't work for me, using AML. Only have 5 mods loaded, community highlander mod, more hair colors, squad size, perfect information, primaries as secondaries.

I have a question. Is there a mod that disables the loading animations only showing the statistics/tips? I mean the animations showing the squad sitting in the transport after a mission, the animation of the squad lying in wait before a mission and the animation of the squad returning to the avenger. As the loading times are quite long and taxing my cpu.

All i can say it's thank you for all the work done. It's really helps a lot during battles and some other things
