[WotC+Classic] Reliable Smoke

Description
Works with War of the Chosen, but also works with vanilla.

Ever lost soldiers to the smoke grenade's buggy UI? Not anymore! Now you can go back to blaming yourself again.

This mod fixes smoke grenades' LOS calculations so that you can rely on them in combat. The smoke preview should now be 100% accurate, even if you pixel-hunt and toss your grenades into the weirdest corners.

This also has an optional feature that gives smoke Long War-style flank prevention - eg. it nullifies the "Flanking" and "Exposed" bonuses to critical chance. This is enabled by default but can be disabled in the INI.

@兔毛:
I still use this with WotC. I don't think it's been fixed by Firaxis.

WOTC FIX?

Sadly this mod seems to remove the Indicator, from the mod Extended/Perfect Information, whether or not you are about to move into a tile that's laden with smoke.

Other than that I love it, but would you consider looking into the Indicator incompatibility?

Cheers

Nevermind. Just checked the files and noticed that it removes flanking bonus outright. Nice.

I play with the absolutely critacal mod, which gives a 200% chance to crit on flanks. I assume I can go into the .ini to make smoke give -200% crit chance, right?

Do you know change smoke bomb(=mk2) hit mod?

I configure "SMOKEGRENADEMK2_HITMOD=-40" in "DefaultGameData_WeaponData.ini", but not adjustment,,,

FYI this should absolutely still work with WotC. I've tested it successfully and none of the code has changed around smoke grenades. They didn't even touch the bug that this mod fixes, get it together Jake!

Still kinda unreliable even with this mod i must say
