[WOTC] Surgical SitRep Fix

Fixes a bug with the "Surgical" SitRep (The one where you can only bring 3 Soldiers). The SitRep is supposed to reduce podsizes to 2. However in Vanilla this doesnt always work correctly, making missions with this SitRep sometimes nearly impossible to beat. This mod fixes that and only that.

Currently the mod is a "quick and dirty" fix with no config values and no support for other mods that want to tinker with podsizes via SitReps. Depending on feedback this can change ofcourse ;).

When a mission appears with the Surgical SitRep you can only bring 3 soldiers. The enemy count is supposed to be reduced so it's not impossible. The reduced enemy count doesn't always happen. This mod makes sure it does.

Can you explain the bug a little more i dont know what this fixes? I haven't been playing xcom2 very long. I did just take out my first avator facility :/ was a pain I'm playing on a harder difficulity.

Just had my first "Cut Sitrep" mission which means the edit I did in the .ini file did work. And it worked mid campaign to boot as well :)

Okay, I'll test them out :)

Again thanks for the assistance.

@Cahos you can try, but I dont know if they are fully implemented and not buggy (there is also a mod that adds them back in)

Thanks, now to get rid of that annoying Low Profile Sitrep and exchange it with something better like the "Black Ops" one which I feel is the Devs attempt at acknowledging this neat Basegame mod:

Squad Concealment ---> http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=623155292&searchtext=squad+conceal

Lastly, can I also add a few more of the cut Sitreps with this method? I'd also like to try the Ambush, Phalanx, Advanced and Acid Pools ones as they sound cool :)

@cahos yes you can, just copy the line over and remove the semicolon ;). Both files work exactly the same way, only difference is tha XComGameData is generated by the game and therefore stuff that is commented out via semicolon is missing.

I found the entry Alex Nares noted on the my documents version of the XComGameData.ini but it doesn't contain the other Sitreps found on the install folder one and I don't know how I should edit it. On the .ini in the install folder Alex said to comment out the Sitreps you don't want (like Low Profile) by adding a semi-colon (;) in front of the Sitrep you don't want, so is that how I should also do it? Also the other Sitreps the devs took out aren't in the my documents folder version, so can I just add 'em in that way.

@cahos yes, just use the XComGameData.ini instead

@Alex Nares:

Isn't there any similar .ini settings file I can edit in the username\my documents config folder? I'm only asking because I kinda feel unsafe editing the file you mentioned found in the game's installation folder.
