•Optional ReShade to get rid of the gray/bloomed graphics and to add more detail to everything in the game.
•Optional save-games if you just want to try out the mod-pack without affecting your current play-though.
-Warning! After adding and activating mods you should never remove them as they will brake your save-game.
-A part of the mods require a new game to function properly so a new game is highly recommended.
Installation instructions :
•Put the files from "Place in Mods Folder" in : XCOM 2\XComGame\Mods
-If the Mods folder does not exist in XcomGame create one with that name
•Optional : place the files from "Place in Win64 Folder(optional)" in : XCOM 2\Binaries\Win64
-This is the ReShade (minor FPS hit for what it offers)
*If game crashes on start rename dxgi.dll to d3d11.dll
*If you still crash (you shouldn't) remove the Reshade files(.fx .dll and reshade folder)
•Optional : place the files from "Place in Documents(optional)" in : C:\Users\YOURUSER\Documents\My Games\XCOM2\XComGame\SaveData
-Might want to backup your other save-games if you want to revert the game to vanilla state.
•Open DefaultGameData.ini (XCOM 2\XComGame\Config)
-change m_iMaxSoldiersOnMission to 6
•Open DefaultUI.ini (XCOM 2\XComGame\Config\)
-change MaxDisplayedSlots to 8
•Open the ModLauncherWPF.exe (XCOM 2\Binaries\Win64\Launcher) and activate all mods and hit play (don't worry if you get an error)
-Start the game from the desktop shortcut.
◘Performance tips :
1.Get the latest update for the game
2.Set AA to FXAA
3.Set AO to Tile-AO
◘Removing the mod pack
-Delete the mods folder
-If you installed the ReShade : delete dxgi.dll,ReShade.fx and ReShade folder
-If you used the save game remove them
-Your game is now in vanilla state.
