Upgrade Reminder [XCOM2 Vanilla & WotC]

Description
Adds icons to soldiers in the squad loadout screen if there are available weapon or PCS upgrades and that soldier has available slots for these items. I am a bear of very little brain and usually forget to actually use the stuff I find on missions. If you do too, this might be for you.

Position, size, and color of the icons is all configurable with the XComUpgradeReminder.ini file in the Config folder. If you are using the workshop, this is found in your steam/steamapps/workshop/content/268500/624726628 folder.

This mod is compatible with vanilla XCOM2, War of the Chosen, and Long War 2, among others. This mod does not include any class overrides and should be compatible with most mods, but any that drastically change the squad select UI may cause the icons to not show up or overlap other UI elements.

To add on to Zyga, I suspect using CBR Redux mod (weapon mod which some weapons may have 5 slots) also breaks the reminder, also displays reminder even though slots are full.

Still, the bug somewhat reminds me to double check things anyways lol

Works often enough that it's useful, thank you for that!

but it seems like there's an issue when you use mods that add alternate items/mod everything, the icons stick around even though theres nothing to upgrade.

Hey, thanks a lot for this mod. Small QoL changes like this are disgustingly under-appreciated.

The squad select mod is a pretty major rewrite of the screen so it's likely this mod won't work with it, no. But that mod also includes some upgrade information too, so there is some overlap between the two.

I believe he is asking below if this works with Robojumpers Squad Select. I don't see it anywhere on my screen using that mod-maybe it's just hidden somehere?

Thanks for the explanation.

The utility function this mod uses to determine whether or not PCS are available for a soldier to use has changed between vanilla and WotC. It previously only set a particular flag if you had an empty PCS slot, and WotC changed it to be true if you have an empty PCS slot *or* you can reuse PCS (e.g. from the continent bonus), so the constant PCS icon only applies to WotC players. I'll patch it so it behaves the same way for both - the old vanilla way.

That's how it should work, yeah. Unfortunately in my (currently paused for Heat Signature) campaign it's been yelling at me the whole game. I didn't equip any PCSs before I got the reusable tech option though, so I don't know if picking that up caused it to happen.

I thought with the "reuse PCS continent bonus", the PCS icon only shows up if there's an upgrade to your current PCS available. I know that's true of weapon upgrades, at least. If that's true, then I think this is the correct behavior already. I'd want to know if there's an upgrade available..
