XCOM2 and mods
« on: March 31, 2020, 06:17:35 PM »
So, anyone here have any experience with mods & Steam and more specifically with XCOM2 and the various Star Wars mods? I've got several that I'm subscribed to but when I fire up WOTC there isn't any option on the start up screen to use any mods. I then unsub'd to them all but 1 and tried using that approach. Still no "mods" option at the start screen.

I've used my google-fu and I've seen many who use the Alternative Mod Launcher, and while I've even given that a try, I get the same results. I'm sure this is user error, but I'm totally stuck.

Advice, links to video "how to's", anything really would be appreciated.

Thanks

If I'm not mistaken, the SW mods consist mostly of armor, weapons and sounds. They don't add new campaigns or missions. Just all window dressing. So when you go to customize your troops, those pieces should all be available.

Thanks for the info JH. I think I just need to play around with mods more and get a better understanding. This is my first game where I'm using mods  O:-)
