Re: What class color-coding do you use?

Is there a mod which colors the rows in soldier lists, based on class? You know so e. G. Assaults name etc in avenger menus are red,etc. I thought I saw a caster with such a mod but can't find it in the Workshop. :( Yes, there is a mod that changes the lists to make the different soldier classes st...

Re: Long War of the Chosen Beta 1 is officially released!

Congratulations on taking this project to such a stage. Been distantly following things. Currently, I just don't have the space to reinstall XCOM 2 WotC, so I won't be checking it out any time soon. It is good to know that LW2 has been continued.

Re: Feedback for that "Avenger Defense" Mission

It's like many missions in Long War 2. You have to be prepared for it. Get the Turret Breakdown ASAP so you can have your own turrets, as well as whatever you need to get them doubled up (forgot it). You need depth in your barracks. And leave enough behind that you can push observation deep enough t...

Re: How long until you moved on?

I think it's about 80GB and I just don't have that much free space right now. And I don't want to remove other games right now. Maybe later. You can move the WotC folder somewhere else if you're not gonna use it. That's what I did, 38gb less on my SDD. I only have the one hard drive in use. And I'd...

Re: How long until you moved on?

Wow. Just logged in tonight to see how things are. The number of people still playing Long War 2 speaks for its quality. I never got very far in any of my campaigns, but the nature of it seemed right to me. I'm tempted to try it again. Of course, the shear size of XCOM 2 (now very large since it's t...

He really knows a lot about XCOM 2 and LW2, especially how the tactical level works. And as others have mentioned, he often gets impatien...

For working with any serious number of mods, I'd suggest switching to the Alternate Mod Launcher. https://www.reddit.com/r/xcom2mods/comments/64mucq/alternative_mod_launcher_now_a_community_project/ It detects many mod interactions that could cause issues, as well as allow you to control which mods ...

Re: Discussion of current Legendary campaign

Even in my limited play in heavily modded Legendary, I have to agree with Dwarfling and others. 1. Avoiding injuries, especially early in the campaign, almost trumps everything. 2. Build up a broad barracks with a spread of soldier types. I use Commander's Choice but I still go for more soldier type...

Re: Discussion of current Legendary campaign

I've not a lot of experience with Legendary game starts, but I think Basic Research should come 1st, 2nd, or 3rd interleaved with Basic Communictations and Modular Weapons, with Alien Biotech never later than 4th so that AP Rounds are unlocked. I would not take needle on grenadiers. The other two ar...

And I've never been able to finish one, with the strategic overhead an...

It's not about saving Earth now, it's about saving the Galaxy. I think this idea leads to more bad that good. It's a standard fault in a lot of film science fiction and can hurt games as well.

Re: What is a reasonable amount of soldiers/squads to have?

I would be very, very careful with 4-soldier squads. Especially with a stealthed Shinobi, they barely have enough firepower to properly take down a single 2 or 3 Advent pod activation. Not unless they are already ranked and geared well, if not overgeared with respect to Advent. I've found 5 to be th...
