All Soldiers Gain XP - WotC

Have you ever lost one of your super-star soldiers, and had to restart because the rest of your barracks was filled with Rookies? Well no longer! This mod gives soldiers in the barracks a small amount of XP after each mission.

For a version that doesn't require War of the Chosen, see here

How does it work?
In the base game, all units on a mission get a small amount of bonus XP, even if they got no kills. You can read more about it here[gaming.stackexchange.com].

This mod gives a percentage of that bonus XP (default is 50%) to soldiers in the barracks as well.

Is it configurable?
Yes. Using Mod Config Menu, you can change:
  • What percentage of the bonus XP soldiers in the barracks get
  • Whether units can level up outside of a mission
  • Whether rookies gain bonus XP
  • Whether injured, training, or covert soldiers get bonus XP


Supports Mod Config Menu!

Classes Overridden (why do I care?):

I see. Sorry for the misinformation on my part then.

@BTAxis: It's a portion of the "participation XP", but it's not flat, it's based on how many (and which) enemies were killed. IIRC the Lost are only worth something like 1/4th a kill normally, then the "participation XP" is 1/3rd-1/5th that (depending on their class, see the link in the description), and then the units in base will get half that by default, so even with XP set to 100% the Lost are only worth 1/12th-1/20th of a kill for units at base.

I don't think it's supposed to give a portion of the kill XP. Only a portion of the flat participation XP.

Weird I came back from a mission where I had over 40 kills (the lost and advent) and my squadies did not get promotions, even though I set the XP to 1 so that they would get as much as the men in the mission

Guys, please read the description. There is an option to prevent rookies from gaining the XP, which will prevent them from auto-promoting to random classes.

yeah one thing i hate about this mod is that it will automatically promote a rookie to random classes... i wish there is an option that prevents auto promote of rookies...

you either use console to change the class of recently promoted squaddie to class that you want or you bring a rookie to a combat mission... the former is easy, but the latter is hard lol

Ala. How's about you read the whole description.

@BlueRaja, how do I enable an option to prevent rookies from gaining the bonus experience? I guess it is a problem primarly, when one use commanders choice mod...

Does it work mid campaign or does it need a fresh start to work?
