[WOTC] New Promotion Screen by Default

Description
This will only work with War of the Chosen!

Description
War of the chosen has two promotion interfaces. The old and trusted two column one and the slick new horizontal one that you get for Resistance Heroes and from the Training Centre. This mod eliminates the use of the old promotion interface for visual consistency.

You must have built a Training Centre in order to buy abilities with points. Without it it will simply allow you to select rankup abilities.

As a consequence SPARKs can now buy extra skills with XCom AP like a normal soldier could. They don't gain a line of XCom Abilities though.

Psi Operatives keep their old upgrade screen because they have their own unique promotion system.

Known Issues
Entering the promotion screen while on the gamepad control scheme crashes the game.

Compatibility
This mod overrides UIArmory_PromotionHero and will almost certainly not work with any other mod that overrides it.

Configuration
You can edit the XComPromotionUIMod.ini file to change some options.
* Setting APRequiresTrainingCenter to false will let you spend AP on abilities without needing to build a Training Center
* Setting RevealAllAbilities to true will show you abilities that would normally be hidden because a soldier lacks the ranks.

Custom Classes
This mod will try to look at a class' ability data and try to switch between 1, 2 or 3 abilities per rank automatically. However if that is not enough or not working as you need it you can manually override this behaviour with a .ini setting. Additionally you can change the cost of specific perks for a class.

Read this topic for details.

Credits and Thanks
* Robojumper who helped get this started, helped solve bugs and who is just generally a very helpful person to other modders.
* Musashi who contributed the additional abilities per rank and brigadier rank support.
* GingerAvalanche who contributed a compatibility feature for other mods who inherit from PromotionUI classes

I'm having an odd issue where I created two custom classes, one is surfacing the third row of abilities just fine, the other is not at all. I have quadruple checked everything and followed your instructions for both of them the exact same. What could be the problem?

Thanks, Dragon.

Nevermind @Dragon32, I figured it out and it worked! Thanks so much! (I feel kind of dumb for not understanding what you meant)
Royce Melborn Jun 5 @ 3:51pm 
@Phil McKay not sure how that could have solved your problem; deleting all the files in the config folder you mentioned makes me unable to start the game. If what @Dragon32 is saying it correct, how do I find which files are "Firaxis" .ini files? All of the files in that folder are .ini folders, but none say Firaxis.

@Dragon32 I don't quite understand what Steam parlance is; could you explain it?
Dragon32 Jun 3 @ 2:26am 
@Snipe:
All the Firaxis .ini files in that folder. If you're using mods which use MCM then their config files will be in that folder too.
An alternate way of doing it is to launch the game once with the -regenerateinis switch ("launch option" in Steam parlance)

@ Phil Mckay -- The whole folder or a particular file within? Thanks.

@UserWithNoSkill I do, but not active with this mod.

@Solthrin I have that problem as well. Do you by any chance happen to have a halo reach armor mod?

I'm having issues with the soldier ability screen not appearing at all with this installed. All that happens when I click on soldier abilities is the screen zooms out a bit and nothing new pops up, just stuck looking at my soldier.
