Hack Plus

Gain 5 or 3 hacking skill points after each successful hack depending on difficulty of hack attempted or 1 point for failed hack. All point gain is configable using ini.

Rewards can be randomized using ini setting. I also left debug settings in the ini which makes hacks always succeed and makes them not cost an action (similar to lightning hands). These are off by default.

If you're concerned with OP then turn on the diminishing returns options in the ini. Reward gain is reduced by 1 for every 20 levels above a certain value. (Based on Zetsumi's suggestion)

Inspiration came from watching ChristopherOdd's Legend Ironman playthrough on YouTube. Techno-bable follows: This mod uses UIScreenListener to modify FinalizeHack and FinalizeIntrusion, FinalizeSkullJack and FinalizeSkullMine templates. Anything that modifies hacking in these templates will likely conflict.

Crashing War of the Chosen on startup?

Great mod. I have been using this for a long time without any problems.

Question though. About "Diminishing Returns". Can you explain "Reward gain is reduced by 1 for every 20 levels above a certain value"? What do you mean every 20 "levels"? Does that mean the Soldier's Hack score?

Crashes Wotc on startup to bad, I like this one

This seems to not only crash WOTC on startup, but actually corrupt it so you have to verify the files and redownload them. Nice.

Is this compatible with LW2?

@ImJustJoshin: Oh shit, I see, that's what was causing it!
I was wondering why my codebreaker went from 50 to 130hack in a couple missions, so that explains it
Well, shit, not sure what to do now, guess I'll have to play with the console for a bit

@Mangelan ► the mod's files are located in
[the path to your Steam install]\Steam\SteamApps\workshop\content\268500\639884488
where 268500 is the XCom2 number game for Steam and 639884488 is the number of the mod.
The path to your Steam install is, if you didn't change the default option during installation of the Steam client : C:\Program Files (x86)
The .ini you're looking for is XComHackPlus.ini in the config folder of the mod.

@AndrewZ ► just hit the green button "subscribe" near the name of the mod and above the mod description. Then wait for it to download automatically from Steam. Launch the game and enable/disable the mods you want to be active in your campaign (or preferably in your *new* campaign
