    Is LW2 any good? Last time I played WOTC the general opinion seemed to be that it wasn't as good as LW was with the earlier XCOM, and people were mixing and matching mods from various sources.

    If I recall, their goal was to mimick LW2 on the strategic level without changing the tactical component too much, and without making the game longer.

    it's the only reason to ever touch that horrible trainwreck that xcom2 is. can't help you further because last time i played it it's been 2 years ago and it might have changed a lot. or perhaps it didn't at all, and i can tell you it does wonders but the base is still xcom2, and no human performs miracles.

    It's incredibly hardcore and anal. Meaning it's great if you're into that sort of stuff. To me though it seemed like a bit of a mutant - a popamole console game with an aspie layer grafted onto it.

    Then it is pointless as combat in Xcom 2 is as bad as strategic level.

    I strongly disagree with it: the real killer for me is the pod system, but there are mods that improve it a lot (there is even a mod that activates all pods at once, but the results are pretty weird, with all the opponents charging across the map in a single big firefight...), and not adding LW2 stuff to the tactical layer makes it easier to work with these.

    Christopher Odd's doing a 200-mod (mostly fixes and cosmetics ofc) playthrough of XCOM 2 WOTC on YT based on the Covert Infiltration mod and a few other key ones. After watching a couple of eps, it looks like fun if anyone's thinking of firing up XCOM 2 WOTC again.

    One of the mods he's using has "protocols" which fold some of the stuff that was formerly in weapon mods and perk picks into predeterrmined 3-level growth paths for the specializations alongside the perk picks (e.g. sniper has "Brace" as his signature trick that accrues better stats in the three level increments), freeing up some room for more interesting and varied perks and mods.

    The base of his playthrough is "Covert Infiltration" + "Proficiency Classes" + "Weapon and Item Overhaul"

    I got inspired and installed again, but after a few attempts I gave up on BOTH mods, there is so many incompatibilities with other cool mods that you really have to compromise... well, I couldn't.

    Besides, Proficiency Classes increase the amount of classes and to me personally this is bad because even if you increase the amount of soldiers you can take to tactical, you can never get one of each. This might not be a deal breaker for some though.

    Covert Infiltration looks nice, but in practice I really didn't see the point... lots of new things that if you think deeply, its just useless fluffy... very few things I really liked, but in the end, its sum was less than what the other mods I had to left out added.

    In the end, I'm playing without both and enjoying a lot more. Although as always, it take a few restarts to calibrate the difficulty with all the difficult+ mods & easy+ mods together.

    From my 362 mods installed, only around 30 can be considered cosmetics... all others are fixes, improvements, changes, features, new stuff, etc

    Interesting. Could you give your modlist, if it's easily possible? Are you using a mixture of Nexus and Steam mods (so presumably you'd use the XCOM Launcher?) After watching some of the Odd videos I'm definitely getting a hankering to play it again :)

    It does seem like it'll take a month to install.
    But I'll try I suppose when I'm done with the current Long War Rebalance attempt.

    Hm,, so suppose I'll try and recreate this setup with a great deal of patience.
    What do I do, install X-Com 2, and then hunt down every single piece and press subscribe?
    How does this interact with the alternate launcher? Perhaps I used it already, I don't remember.
    Also, I suppose your config EDITS are made in a way to make this all play together. Did you upload them somewhere?
    Thanks in advance :)

    1. Install Xcom2
    2. Download the Alternative Mod Launcher
    3. You can save this list I posted into a .txt file and load it into the Alternative Mod Launcher, this way will be easier to look for the mods (IIRC you can subscribe directly from it)
    4. I have a separated .txt with all my edits as backup, so I can post it here later and you just have to copy/paste it over the code they change for each mod (you do this inside the AML).

    Keep in mind that with that amount of mods I have, its not really well balanced... the way it is, its more common to have a easy time... but some times you get a fucking nightmare mission.

    So, even during my current playthrough, I'm doing tweaks in pursuit of a balanced difficulty (a endless task unfortunately).

    If I'm to describe my setup, I would say the core of my list is equipment based:
    "Dedicated Pistol Slots" + "Grenade Slots" (default) + "Vest Slots" (default) + "Ammo Slots" (bought at the GTS) + "Base 6 + 4 Upgrades for Soldiers"...
    Everything else is built around it.

    But yeah, it would be easier to just load my list and remove/tweak what you don't like... I rarely get crashes, and it happens usually during reloading a save in tactical mode or at finishing a mission also on tactical mode. So you just have to save regularly to avoid big losses.

    Do you use any of the Long War classes / Long War weapons mods?

    No... but I'm using LW2 perk pack mod as part of a overhaul of the "XCOM random perks", with a pool of around 50 new random perks for each class.

    For Classes Revamps:
    - Psionics WOTC for Psi Operative
    - Mechatronic Warfare for Sparks

    New Classes:
    - Shiv Mod
    - Keeper Class from Rescue Denmother mod

    Thanks Ironmonk.
    I'll stay tuned for that collection of text edits of yours, when you have time.
    I'm in absolutely NO hurry, I'm going through a run of LWR, I mean to start this side project (and I do mean the installation task) at a relaxed pace ;)
