Gotcha (Flank Preview Evolved)

Gotcha expands on XCOM 2's Line Of Sight indicator, adding the ability to anticipate if a move will flank an enemy, if they are visible through squadsight, and when mission objectives will be in view to either hack or shoot at.

Latest Update
  • New Feature: Units spotted via Battle Scanners or Scanning Protocol should now display line of sight icons.
  • Fixed the line of sight icons flickering when quickly moving the mouse.
  • Fixed a vanilla game bug where dark VIPs were using the wrong indicator arrow icon, the friendly VIP icon (blue bust with XCOM logo), instead of the appropriate dark VIP icon (red alien bust). This is so we can use our own custom icons for spotted and squadsight status against a dark VIP. Happy assassinations, everyone!
  • Line of sight icons are now temporarily suppressed when the over the shoulder camera is active, since they are not representative of the unit's current location.
  • Turned down the suck on predictions involving peek flanking. This should resolve a few instances where the wrong icon was shown.

Compatability & Troubleshooting
  • This mod overrides the class UIUnitFlagManager, and so will conflict with any other mod that overrides the same class. Note that this is a different class than UIUnitFlag, and so it does NOT currently conflict with mods like Numeric Health Display.
  • If you're having trouble with the mod, the most likely culprit is a bad config. Bountygiver has an excellent (and short) guide on resolving these types of problems.

Feedback is always appreciated!

@vrcic Try "Gotcha Again", which comes in both regular and WOTC varieties.

Flank Icon doesnt work anymore.....red is fine but doesnt show a yellow icon when flanking an enemy.

I am about halfway through a game of WotC with this mod enabled with no problems. Should I be worried? Do I need to restart with it disabled for some late-game bug?

I just released an updated version of Gotcha Again that works with WotC: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1124288875

Is this compatable for WOTC?

Will this be updated for WOTC? It's far better than Firaxis' implementation.
