Landed UFOs From Day 1 WOTC

Supply Raids can be UFO landings, whether you completed the Avenger Defense mission or not.

The base game requires you complete the Avenger Defense mission before encountering ANY landed UFOs.

This mod overrides the CreateSupplyRaid function. Because the old one sucked a**.

Change it here (default is 50%):

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\XCOM 2\XCom2-WarOfTheChosen\XComGame\Config\DefaultGameData.ini

If the game rolls below this number on 1D100, you get a landing. If not, you get a Supply Raid.

@ Dragon32: The former - the missions skip from the intro video straight to the "mission failed" screen aboard an empty Firebrand, complete with the Speaker gloating her nonexisting balls off about XCOM's defeat.

@ ADVENT Avenger: Thanks for the advice, but I'm well aware of the config refresh shenanigans. I used them extensively during my search for the root cause - delete configs, disable one mod, load game, start new campaign. If Gatecrasher went belly-up instantly, exit game, rinse and repeat until suddenly things were back to normal after I disabled the Day-One UFOs. Tried it another two times just to be certain, with the same result, so I have little choice but to blame this mod, unfortunately. Fortunately (?), I got the UFO Defense mission in my current campaign's third month, so now I can go back to raiding flying saucers the old-fashioned way ^^.

It can be sneaky too, because the game doesnt warn you when you load your game that the mods arent loading correctly. It wont spit out a list of "this content is missing".

The best medicine to not working mods is to flush out the CONFIG folder (the one in your docs folder, NOT the game ones). Then run the game, let the files regen, exit, the relaunch the game.

As a point to see if all my mods have kicked in correctly i use Instant Avenger Menus. If i dont get instantly inside my facility when i click, my mods haven't "kicked in correctly". Every once in a while i need to flush out my files for the game to work correctly.

By "auto-failed the Gatecrasher and tutorial missions" do you mean that you'd start the mission and immediately get a Mission Failed message? Or would the game crash on loading Gatecrasher? Or something else?

I don't have any map packs installed, so I'd be surprised if that's what's causing the problem.

This is a known issue and not related to this mod. Its a map issue and in my experience mostly prevalent with Mandarbs map pack. Its also not 100 percent so it might work sometimes and sometimes not even then.

After a day of searching for the reason why my game suddenly auto-failed the Gatecrasher and tutorial missions upon starting a new campaign, I eventually narrowed it down to this mod. I have no idea why, but once I disable it (configs and all), everything's running fine again. Unfortunate story, really; I very much enjoyed this mod during my last campaign. Perhaps something can be done about it.

Just completed a WOTC campaign with 63 mods including this one. All ran perfectly. I like this mod, I will use it again.

You can adjust that in the ini files. Also a supply raid is a supply raid, both provide materials. I can post the difference i guess between both

You might want to add a note that early UFO raids can give you a boost in Alien materials that you would otherwise not be able to obtain so early. Maybe it's common sense, but I wasn't thinking the mod would make the game easier when I got it. But hey, month 3 Psionic Lab, who's complaining?!
