[WOTC] New Promotion Screen by Default

Description
Community Promotion Screen

While New Promotion Screen by Default still works there is now a Community Promotion Screen that has more features and has active support. While I have not played with it I trust the community highlander maintainers and so highly encourage you to use that instead.

[WOTC] Community Promotion Screen

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

A mod's ID is the name of its local folder and included in the Workshop URL.

If this is incompatible with the RPG Overhaul, how anyone know how I can install the Samurai Class Mod by Musashi?

You don't need this with RPGO, because the latter has this already integrated. That means all mods that require NPSBD should also work with RPGO instead.

It'll be in this mod's Workshop folder, the folder's name will be this mod's unique ID number. That's in this page's URL.
