PS do you guys run any other mods with XCOM2 or just Long War 2? Reinstalling that now
I'm running Gotcha (Flank Preview), Additional Icons (with the loot icons turned off), Perfect Information, CapnBub's, and UIKillCounter along with Long War 2.
There are things I like about Long War 2 and things I really, really hate. The changes to the attack formula are so annoying (a 113% shot shouldn't give me -3% to crit because the hit chance is "too low" and it shouldn't freaking graze.) I hate some of the new sidearms (my gunner definitely is gonna use that knife a lot...), but love some of the other ones (Arc Thrower ftw.) I don't get the Holotargeter at all (am I really gonna want to give up my sniper's attack for a 10% bonus to hit that often?) unless you take the free action every 4 turns perk, which means you have to skip Snapshot (and given the Squadsight penalties in XCOM2, I much prefer a Snapshot sniper.)
Also, I'd kind of like to punch whoever decided rocket scatter should be a thing in the face. My one use per mission item/ability shouldn't cause more harm than good when I use it (I may be bitter that the first time I used it, instead of hitting the 3 Advent I was aiming at, it blew up the building containing the people I was trying to rescue and killed one of them.)
Kind of hoping there's an ini setting to turn off the rainbow colored ability bar, as well.
There seem to be a lot of good things, too. The Geoscape seems interesting, though I'll have to see more of it to know for sure. I like the Infiltration mechanic, and some of the new missions I've encountered (it was kind of cool to do a mission without a shot fired. Never broke cover until I hacked the cell doors of some resistance folks, and a turn later we were on the Skyranger...although I may have accidentally thrown a grenade while trying to evac...) It definitely feels more like a Resistance/Guerilla War now, and funding seems hard to come by (no more having almost a hundred trooper corpses by the time the Black Market opens
) Definitely looking forward to playing more of it (and hoping some more mods get updated with compatibility...I really miss True Concealment.)
