Smart Overwatch

Allows Xcom to direct their overwatches into specific zones. Works with Shen’s Last Gift DLC!
Offers a more tactical and immersive version of the current overwatch ability. Great for advanced players or repeat playthroughs.

  • Cones dynamically adjust to weapon types being used. Snipers have long and skinny cones, shotguns have short and wide cones, etc.

  • Default cone sizes are just my own interpretation. You can adjust them by weapon type in the mod's folder (714941290) > Config > XComGameCore.ini.

  • You can also adjust aim bonus for using smart overwatch in the mod's folder. Default setting is 0 bonus. (714941290) > Config > XComGameCore.ini.

  • Works with Overwatch All/Others Mod.
  • Works with both new and current playthroughs. Can be added and removed freely.
  • Works with all current overwatch perks (covering fire, longwatch, guardian, etc.)
  • Adds “Smart Overwatch” IN ADDITION to the normal overwatch. Will add ability to disable regular overwatch in future update, for advanced tactical play.

    -------------------------------------------------Minor Update---------------------------------------------------

    Accuracy modifiers are now available in XComGameCore.ini

    The default accuracy bonus is 0. You can change it to whatever you like:

    +OverwatchAimBonus = 0

    +OverwatchAimBonus = 5

    +OverwatchAimBonus = -5


    -------------------------------------------------Minor Update---------------------------------------------------

@Rob: Inbalanced in which way? If anything, it's only a buff for XCom, because you still have regular overwatch too...

it's cool but the fact that the enemies do not have to do makes it a bit unbalanced.

So I bought the DLC just now and fuck me are there many in my opinion essential mods, like this one that for whatever reason has not been updated. To me that's somewhat bizarre.

Hi. Is it possible that you will update this awesome mod in near future?
Or, is there anybody that can update this for WOTC?

It seems pretty neat, although for WotC I can confirm it crashes on start-up.

Hi every one. I honestly don't have the time or money to continue working on this. Hopefully it still works? It's a pretty minimal mod, so I hope it works with WoTC. Any one is welcome to take this idea or any code and use it at their leisure.

Hi, i was wondering if there is a way to add the smart overwatch to the pistols, because when i move my sniper and only can use the pistol i cant use smart overwatch, or is a bug?

There is a new skill, Interrupt, that the Skirmisher gets. That would be my ideal "overwatch" mod, give me the options like in Jagged Alliance 2 or Silent Storm.
