This mod comes with a default integration to Grimys Loot Mod and Grimys Utility Slot Sidearms

This mod should work on existing save games.
There is an issue that if you have unlocked the higher tiers with the old katana mod there are still unlocked.

All credits of the conventional katana model and the original implementation to vblanco20-1[ESP].
The energy and plasma katana models, all wakizashi and all ninjato models are from escrimator.
Dōmo arigatō vblanco20-1[ESP] and escrimator. You are the best guys!

Thanks and Credits to Long War Studios for the fleche ability code and LW2.

Thanks to resonansER for the russian translation!
Thanks to Erazil for the french translation!
Thanks to [PTT]Kei for the traditional chinese translation!
Thanks to luga.sg for the simple chinese translation!
Thanks to a8a for helping me getting rid of typos in the english version!

ModID: 698579656

Possible issues:
It was reported that this mod may produce a crash after the tutorial misson.
I can't reproduce it, i have this crash with or without mods active.


Q: I don't see the mobility bonus in the UI/Ninjato don't give mobility bonus?

A: Remove the relevant lines in XComUI.ini and you will see the mobility bonus.
The downside is it will show the swords aim bonus on your soldier then.
Nothing i can do about that.

Is there any way to disable certain types of swords (wakizashi and/or ninjato)?

I asked a question about this here a while ago, now just started another LW campaign after a year of hiatus, and got the same issues...trying to get this to work with Grimy Loot Mod LW2 Open Beta, and I cannot for the **** of it get it to do what it should. Says above it already has loot integration with Grimy, but I suppose that only works smoothly with vanilla, right?
I have researched swords up to BM tier, but -like in my first go around- I am getting Katanas, Ninjatos and Wakis from CV, MG and BM tier pretty randomly, while the vanilla blades work just fine, AKA only come up as BM tier...
I already tried different combinations of edits on the integration file (put in all tiers, change the dot to a +, commented stuff out, etc), even deleted it altogether, but nothing seems to fix it. I don't remember if or how I solved the problem the first go around, can anyone help?

@Duke Ramza The different colors are for the different tiers. The red is for the mag tier swords, blue for the beam tier swords, and purple for the special vortex weapons.

Hello, I researched the higher tier and my question is how do I change the swords energy color? I see in your pictures its blue and purple mine shows red but looks orange on the actual body

Is there any chance to get this mod with "Sheath?" like in the WOTC version?

@John Shepard: Use your brain for 2 seconds and you should figure it out. Because you basically wrote the answer already.

Sorry, I don't have WOTC, but can someone please tell me why all mods need to be changed to be compatible??? Thank you
