[WOTC] New Promotion Screen by Default

This will only work with War of the Chosen!

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.

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

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.

Just two small and avoidable bugs when you're returning from a mission and promote soldiers:

1. When choosing abilities, sometimes it won't highlight when you mouse over one, but others will.
Very rarely happens though.

2. Most of the time my characters will be moved to the middle of the screen, blocking my ability options and their descriptions.
Happens pretty much every time, kind of rendering the screen and this mod useless.

Both avoidable by just continueing to the Avenger and promoting them in the barracks.

Doesn't let me pick which ability I want. There's no select option it just describes the perk and I'm forced to back out of it cause there's no other options.

Got part way through a campaign with no issues but now am not able to view abilities/promotions screen without ctd, only exception being for reapers haven't got a skirmisher so can't confirm it.

@DOP This mod doesn't do anything to allow you to respec a soldier's random abilities. Your comment must have been meant for the I'm the Commander Here mod, but for some reason you posted it here instead.

I've built my trainer centre but still can't see the respec button. What's the easiest way to troubleshoot this? Thanks
