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

UPDATED TO SUPPORT WAR OF THE CHOSEN!
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

You have mod class override conflicts. It's not the fault of the mod. Use Alternative Mod Launcher, it highlights those kinds of conflicts in red.

Not sure why but this mod causes my framerate in the overworld to tank to 20. It seems to get worse with the more mods I have activated but if this mod is off then its always 60 even if all others are on. Could be a conflict because i used the non WOTC version of this mod for years fine, but as it stands this is unusable.

No, that's base game functionality, available if the game is launched in debug mode.

Is this the mod that enables speeding up of gameplay using the PLUS <+> key? Is there a way to prevent the bug that often occurs after doing this where the soldiers and even enemies sometimes cosmetically appear to be in a different square than they actually are? It is getting tiring having to use the TTC console command or F5 / F9 reload.

100% love this

This mod didn't feel noticeably faster than Zip Mode to me and playing with it for a few hours I had more visual and gameplay bugs than in all my time playing X-Com before combined. Might have just been a one in a million conincidence but I had never seen any of those bugs before.

@BlueRaja
Would you mind me publishing the Instant Color Picker thing as a separate mod? That's the only part of the mod I want to have in my own playthroughs, and there are probably more people like me.
