About this mod

Aims to repurpose the strategic UI to give players more information in-game about Long War.

Permissions and credits
NOTE: This is an early version of the mod. It is not yet complete.

Long War is often criticized for being opaque and having a significant proportion of important information regarding game mechanics and detailed stats located outside of the game itself (i.e. DGC.ini, the wiki, and the Nexus forums).

However, the strategic UI is filled with flavour text that, while nice to read, is extremely vague and virtually useless to the player. This mod aims to repurpose the space in order to add information that is precise, assists player decisions, and reduces the need to ALT-TAB out of the game to check things.

To install this mod, replace the file XComStrategyGame.int, located in Steam\steamapps\common\XEW\XComGame\Localization\INT, with the one included in the download.

This file was created for Long War Beta 15f2. It will probably be mostly compatible with older versions, but this is not guaranteed, particularly any versions before B15e.
