[WotC] RW Better Mission Result Based Autoadjusting Difficulty
Last revision: 9 Feb at 13:54 UTC
;My "Enemy Force Level" (a Default-XCom2 Value used to determine the Amount/Type/Tier of randomly generated Enemies in Missions and gradually increasing from 1 to 20 by +1 every 10days) helpfully also decreases/increases after each Mission based on Casualties (No Wounded, Wounded, 33% Killed, 50% Killed, 100% Killed) and based on Mission Result (Successful/Failed) automatically preventing me from gradually becoming overpowered/overloser, yours?
;Self-adjusting difficulty is something I’ve always "manually" practiced in any game (by manually tiny-stepping down/up difficulty after losing/winning a mission or match and therefore making the game’s Difficulty naturally "oscillate" around the most appropriate for me). I`ve also always practiced it with XCom1/2 but I kind of like the Time-Costs settings of Legendary Difficulty so this Mini-Mod is designed to obtain the same result (make Difficulty naturally oscillate around the most appropriate for the player) but altering a different Difficulty parameter which represents Enemy Strength and, this time, automatically instead of manually… 😉
;YOU CAN CHANGE THE VALUES TO THE DESIRED ONES IN THE .INI FILE (And don’t you dare asking where the .INI file is… seriously??? 😉 )
;The two below "Casualties" and "Mission Result" Modifiers are cumulative. For Example: +1 (No Wounded) -1 (Mission Failed) = +0.
EnemyForceLevelChangeWithNoWounded = 1
EnemyForceLevelChangeWithJustWounded = 0
EnemyForceLevelChangeWithBetween01And33PercentKilled = 0
;MISSION RESULT MODIFIER
EnemyForceLevelChangeWithMissionAccomplished = 0
EnemyForceLevelChangeWithMissionFailed = 0
;ENEMY FORCE LEVEL (CURRENT + CHANGED) SHOWN IN MISSION SUMMARY
MissionSummaryText = "Enemy Badassness:"
IPreferEnemyForceLevelToBeShownInPercentagesInsteadOfFractionsOf20 = true
;This way instead of increments of 1 from 1 to 20 it will be shown in increments of 5% from 5% to 100%… I kinda prefer it… kinda looks more professional… 😉

;Please help me to update this list
Are you so full of gratitude for this Mini-Mod that you will just explode if you don’t offer me a beer?
Need me to add an option you like?
Want to help to keep this mod “surviving” XCom updates?
You’d like me to make it compatible with your favourite Mod?
Seen a bug and want to help me find the time to squash it?
XCom Modding is fun but doesn’t pay the rent and free time is limited… Donations are NOT mandatory but if you want to "motivate" me to escalate this mod maintenance (or your suggested idea) higher on my free-time priority list… here is the Paypal link and I’ll have a beer (or maybe lunch) in your honour. 😉
DETECT CLASS OVERRIDES CONFLICTS BETWEEN MODS
Simply make a quick Harddrive Search for “+ModClassOverrides=(BaseGameClass=“
The results will show all the XComEngine.ini files of Mods that make Overrides. Check if any of those files have the same Class name after the “=“ and kindly ask the Modders to try to avoid that override or cooperate with each other. When 2 mods override the same class the game gets HORRIBLY VERY SLOW and only 1 of the 2 Mods works (randomly).
