[WotC] I'm the Commander here

Pure frustration over your beginning soldiers getting the worst Trainingcenter ability combinations while some random dude you got as a reward from a Councilmission has all the good ones?

Don't worry no more, as you are the Commander this mod will let you choose any eligable ability for your soldiers to your likings for a little amount of AP of course after you build the Trainingcenter.

Extension Mod
This mod [WotC] I'm the Commander here extension will add more abilities for herosoldiers to roll naturally.
Check the mod-page for more details. (Note: This feature was earlier incorporated into this mod, but I decided to move it to a seperate mod keeping this mods functions cleaner.)

Mod config files

Main-config file for this mod, see the config itself for further explonations on what the settings do.

I included this to enable Sparks having Trainingcenter abilities and remove some abilities which are nonsense from the selection choice like Deep Cover. Also introduced AP to Sparks on promotion.

You can adjust the number of how many TC abilities any soldier gets. Defaultsetting is still 4 and setting it 7 or above will break this mod and your game.

  • I recommend using the WotC New Promotion Screen by Default mod with this one.
  • Don't use this mod WotC: Sparks with AWC Abilities in conjunction with this one as its features are already incorporated
  • Works with RPGO again.
  • Does not work in conjuction with WOTC Richards Hero Classes Rework This mod will let you do everything that mod does and even more.
  • This mod needs valid soldierclasses to work properly. If another mod let's you change classes midcampain and does not do everything correctly chances are this mod will not work for that specific soldier.

Gamepad support
  • to "click" the respec button he must be visible and then you open the console and type: ClickRespecButtonByConsole
  • DPAD: UP+DOWN will let you cycle through the left side choosing the ability you wanna respec (purple/psionic colored)
  • DPAD: LEFT+RIGHT OR R1+R2 will let you cycle through the middlescreen choosing the new ability (yellow colored)
  • A for XBOX OR X for PS4 Controller will accept the choice, B or O will close the screen
  • No Scrolling support for Gamepad as of now.

Same Mod for other iterations of the game

  • Everything works midcampagin.
  • if you find yourself only being able to respec the first ability plz read what I wrote under gamepad support as it describes how this mod works
  • See the change notes for what is new and has changed.

Before making a comment about a "bug" or a "feature" not working ask yourself:
  • Did I read the description of this mod?
  • Did I look at the pictures of this mod?
  • Has my question recently been answered in the comment section?
  • If you make a comment about a bug be as detailed as you can. Sentences like "it's not working" won't enable me to solve any problem.
  • If you need extenisve support feel free to contact me on Discord: Clyde#7185
  • Very technical and foremost individual problems should be asked on Discord

Ok. Thank you for the response

U can't do that without writing a mod. Noone here not even I can tell on how to do is this step by step as u cannot do it by changing any *.ini alone.

So I try to add the Shadow + Silent Killer skill from reaper to the other class, but except with a kill from vektor rifle, Silent killer won't activate... Any one can guide me on how to change this?

If u give them TC abilties it will otherwise why would it?

Is this work with psi ops?

Hi, I just want to ask, did anyone have tried to add Shadow and Silent killer to sharpshooter? Shadow is working as intended however silent killer even if I get a kill with it, it will still have that 50% chance instead of 0% when I kill with reaper. Is it due to silent killer is tied to vektor rifle instead on sniper rifle?

thanks for updating it for RPGO.

New Version up

In "XComImTheCommanderHere.ini":

- added "xAlwaysShowRespecBTN" to allow respeccing without the TC being built if set to true (default still false)

- For RPGO only: added all the abilities from "InnateAptitudesDeck" to "TraitsXcomAbilities" -> respeccing should now work again, but your soldiers can roll
"InnateAptitudesDeck" abilities in "TraitsXcomAbilities" (first slot) naturally

Interesting find, but looks like it didn't even need that case.

No. Free respeccing will never be allowed.

would you consider allowing iRespecAPCost=0 in the ini? it's not default, so it doesn't affect anyone anyway. For my gameplay it makes sense in that I like to kind RP the soldiers through their abilities, so I end up just refunding the AP cost through the console...
