MOD-ID TAG = #855089938
DESCRIPTION = HUD customization
SUMMARY = Various UI components are enhanced to provide faster on-screen detection of gameplay features or contexts.

Get ready for a wild ride into a revamped interface where theme(s) of carefully planned colors/designs can help determine what is in focus or give qUIck (;) hints about which symbols mean this or that or whatever else.

For those familiar with my library of XCom2 Mods, you'll simply switch to a similar concept yet adapted to specific LW2 conditions & elements. (( qUick_RCP & qUick_FIX are no longer needed while you play LW2 - so de-activate them, btw! ))

To appreciate all it has to offer, everyone must use the SwappImg ModTool (linked in the "Required Items" Steam section) -- and, install my LAByrinth mod too. The first hooks necessary custom images, the other supplies you with multiple other reference Tags & Strings that wouldn't appear otherwise - highly recommended.


Now that "Amineri" from Pavonis has officially confirmed any of my custom strings should work just fine as is, i no longer have to ask subscribers to perform (honestly, it was quite silly) Copy/Paste swaps from local folders to their LW2 structure.

As such, these localization files were thoroughly optimized and would directly update whatever is necessary. But a small warning.. this mod requires to be "Loaded/Subscribed/(re)Installed" after each Long War updating process. I'll honestly try keeping up with their cyclic nature and you will probably witness some Steam "de-activation" of this mod in the future -- which will mean i'm hard at work to adapt qUIck_LW2 as it should.


1) Continue developping many other components for qUIck_LW2, update LAByrinth (with new LW2 assets) & design fully dynamic + GFX-Flash/Compatible assets for GeoscApps.


(14/05PM) ; v1.3 compatibility pass,
-- Adding a variety of enhanced "MissionIcons" for the Events flow stack which makes their detection much easier!

(26/02PM) ; v1.2
-- Clearer re-Coloring of Geoscape Recruiting Notifications,
-- Psi-Operative Class name is Lavender, etc!

** Comments, Kudos?? Please join the discussion threads below.
** BUGs to report?? Post in the provided area, only!

As a bonus, you also have 99 custom SquadIcons to play with, have fun!

BUG reports & other concerns...

The only rational reason something like this could happen is if another mod fiddles with the XComLW_Activities.INI file (from Pavonis version) related to the Mission parameters simply because i declare the new Icons within specific code instructions (MissionImagePath=..).

Either that or the LoadOrder affects the stack cycle by assigning (as indirect overrides) these new (of the other mod) Paths --after-- mine goes through the initialisation steps. The AML tool could determine what is that mod & into which order we are both slotted.

From that point on -- you're on your own to fix the stuff! :)

I am enjoying your mods, but the lw2 mission icons for this dont seem to be working any suggestions?

Ok, thanks for the quick reply and I love it. :)

@Oldhip.. the colored numbers have no real "meaning" all by themselves. They are simply used to re-organize the technos by categories, since the alpha-numerical strings can then be parsed by their respective order within each types (autopsies or purely research, etc).

Looks amazing and clear but where can I find out what the numbers etc mean ?

To any of my 895 current subscribers.. that are still using this mod -- read carefully;

There's a VERY slim risk the newest v1.5 LW2-Update has introduced some "minor flaws" in a few text strings used by my mod. It should still work fine though.

BUT the timing is terrible, since i will be concentrating my energy & time onto WotC content that should affect each of my other Mods (LAByrinth, GeoscApps, SwappIMG, qUIck(s) & FLG, etc). Until i have applied important fixes to those (for a predictable week or two) -- i will return to LW2 related stuff.

Soooooo.. please be patient!

Thank you!

Perhaps one of the most underrated mods I have ever seen, this mod is actually beautiful I praise the author to have time to both make and maintain a mod which makes UI so much more smooth. The other mods by this author are greats as well.

Thanks for the quick reply, Zyxpsilon.

Must be there since that code still mimics what FIX did -- at least on my setup. She only shows up (as fleshy) within the research completed popups though.
