Use My Class

WOTC Version can be found here:

This mod forces the game to use your specified class in the character pool, when it
promotes rookies from the After Action screen. It also changes logic to
honor the character pool class when giving a soldier as a mission reward.


The mod matches any character by first and last name in your character pool,
and uses your selected class.

If you have the soldier defined as a Rookie, the game will assign a class randomly,
just as it currently does.

If you have the soldier defined as a Psi Operative, it will assign a PsiOperative,
however, that soldier will not be trainable until the requisite facility is built.

If you are having problems getting it to work...
Please read the pinned discussion section below first for suggestions on how to resolve the issue.

If you find this mod useful, a thumbs up would be very much appreciated.

Update 6/14/2016:
Replaced class override for X2StrategyElement_DefaultRewards, to hopefully help reduce conflicts.

Update 6/25/2016:
Opened up logic to allow soldiers to be promoted to Psi Operatives.

1. The soldier will have no powers at his disposal until the Psi Ops facility is build
and he begins training.
2. Soldiers given as mission rewards will also have no powers until they begin training,
regardless of starting rank.
3. These soldiers will need to be started out in the Psi Ops facility just like rookies to begin
their powers training. Until this starts, they only have the rifle and are of limited use on
missions. They will be listed in the drop down along with any rookies you have available.

Does this mod affect the psi lab in any way that would cause another mod to fail in changing psi lab functionallity?

I've been having problems with the xcom psi overhaul mod and this is one of the few mods I installed before starting my campaign.

alright. I got it to work after i reinstalled the game. I am guessing that a config file got messed up somewhere.

I tried deactivating Commander's Choice mod and my soldier still isn't granted the Psi Operative class on rank up.
