For LongWar(LW) a separate review planned, but some of the information applies to LW.



There are really a lot of mods – it takes too long for the player to read about everything.
This Guide contains Top10 Mods by category bugs / perks / info / beauty / rebalance.

Only for EnemyWithin(THAT ONE); not for EnemyUnknow(ME); not for LongWar(LW);
(most mods are incompatible with different releases of the game, except for the simplest)
Mods that clearly simplify the game and break the balance like cheats – deliberately ignored.
For LongWar(LW) a separate review planned, but some of the information applies to LW.

How to install the mod

Mod Workshop for XCOM_2012 is disabled in Stеam.
Therefore, mods for XCOM_2012 cannot be obtained simply by subscribing to Steam, but you need to download(eg, with Nexus) and install manually.

Download / mods / ID from here (need to register)

The note: For some mods added the date of the last update, to better compare with others (not only by ID);
The note: Many mods, especially those implementing similar functionality (subgroup), incompatible with each other, check after the fact;
The note: It is advisable to carefully read the description of the mod, to install it correctly and avoid known issues.

The note: label [v] tagged mods, which are mutually compatible and recommended by the Author;
(so to speak, Editor's Choice)

Question: Is it possible to turn on the mod in the middle of the campaign?
Answer: some – Yes, some – Not.
This can be written about (or not) on fashion pages.
Want less trouble – start a new Campaign. Or take risks.

Mod utilities

There is a whole story about, how the developed ones increased the convenience of mod building.
(with every release EU =>EW =>LW=>XCOM2 moved more and more parameters from packed .UPK / .EXE to easy-to-edit .INI files)

Fashions are:
– strings for (manual) .INI file edits (universally)
– hex patches replacements for PatcherGUI (universally)
– Replacement hex patches with Offset for ToolBoks (tied to version, dangerous)
– finished patched UPK (incompatible with other mods)
– Texmod (does not modify files, patching game resources in RAM after launch)

XCOM Meddler (06 Dec 2012) (/mods/76)

  • Fashion building folder, it all started with him.
    Designed to edit DefaultGameCore.ini

XCOM ToolBoks (24 Dec 2013) (/mods/79)

  • Classic, has built-in mods, list non-cheating:
    – skip intro;
    – skipping screensavers when detecting aliens;
    – remove delay for Combat Readiness and Deaf Defense;
    – camera setup, rotation, scale;
    – display of soldier experience;
    – animation acceleration;
    – disable disappearing corpses;
    Also can patch .UPK files
    CustomMods=>LoadCustomMod=>Select Mod =>Open=>InstallCustomMod

PatcherGUI (v7.3) (10 Apr 2015) (/mods/448)

  • Most mods are installed through it.
    (included in UPKUtils for mod development, can be downloaded separately)

XCOMModHelper (github(.)com/fperks/xcom-mod-helper)

  • Some mods are in .XML, put through this program.

Long War Mod Manager (only for LongWar) (/mods/620/)

  • Simplifies installation and removal of mods for LongWar, can be used as a replacement for PatcherGUI;


  • TexMod 0.9b (2008?) (google and download)
    This is a utility, for replacing and extracting textures in DirectX games 9.
    Mods that change textures (clothes,cards,model) usually work through it.
    But it is inconvenient to use it., therefore, several additions were released to it.
    (EXE game file and texture files must be selected manually each time, it is not comfortable)
    Universal Modding Engine (uMod V2.0) – unofficial second version.
  • TexMod AutoLoad (16 Jan 2014) (/rememberme/mods/4)
    For convenience and speed up the launch of the game.
    You need to configure default.ini once
  • EasyTexMod (13 Mar 2015) (/mods/525)
    To facilitate the use of TexMod 0.9b
    automation of texture updates;

(nTex – analogue of TexMod?)

UI Mod Manager (06 Sep 2021) (/mods/766)

  • Special mod, allows you to customize other mods right in the game without the need to fix .ini files;
    Compatible with any version of XCOM: THAT ONE, Long War, LW Ascension, etc.
    Only works with mods based on mutators.
    Adds in-game menu, on / off fashion, setting parameters if provided.
    To provide the manager with parameters, need to add variables from .ini files (from DGC or others.) DefaultModsProfile.ini.
    Supports Mini Mods Collection (/mods/735)

Activates the developer console (for debugging and cheating).
Console hot button – (\) or (~).

  • Developer Console Activation for EW and EWLW (/mods/519)
  • WORKING enable the Developer Shell and Console (/mods/535)

Attention, problems and errors

To play with mods you need to do (only once):
– DisableHash Check (only for EU);
– Enable Direct Editing (which will ensure loading .INI mods from other folders);
– DisableDialingHome (the game automatically restores the original files undoing mods);
There are guides on how to do it manually
But all this has long been built into mod programs..
for example, в PatcherGUI: Tools=>DisableHashCheck

IMPORTANT! – the game should NOT be in the Steam folder “Program Files”
You need to add a library of games on another disk to Steam and install the game there.
(possibly, the problem is in spaces and / or Cyrillic in the path to the game)
Otherwise, some mods may not work or work incorrectly.!

IMPORTANT! EW mods are installed in XEW folder
(often confused with the original EU, which is one folder higher)

After installing the mods, it is recommended:

  • Clear config cache – delete all files from folder
    C:/Users/USERNAME/Documents/My Games/XCOM – Enemy Unknown/XComGame/Config
    C:/Users/USERNAME/Documents/My Games/XCOM – Enemy Within/XComGame/Config
    C:/Users/USERNAME/Documents/My Games/XCOM Long War/XComGame/Config
  • Clear UPK cache – delete 3 files
  • Start a new Campaign;

If there are still problems, you can rename the profile.bin file
C:/Users/USERNAME/Documents/My Games/XCOM – Enemy Within/XComGame/SaveData.
It stores your personal game statistics, including progress for Achievements on Steam, so it needs to be renamed and not deleted, just in case.

After all of the above settings in the game, of course, chip in on default.

How to uninstall a mod

It depends on how they put it
For Meddler or ToolBoks – just open the program and change back.
Для PatcherGUI – the program saves a backup of the original files.
TexMod – just don't run the game through it.

Steam does not need to reinstall the game to uninstall the mod.
Just go to Steam
Right Mouse Button => XCOM=> Properties => LocalFiles => Check the Integrity of the Game Cache
Steam will return the game files to the original.

Fashion – bug fixes

Game crash after completing Tutorial mission
Disable the option in the video settings “Smooth frame change”(SmoothFrameRate).
(incompatible with FPS Lock mode)

Shelters no shield Windows8 / 8.1(x64)
Corrected display of the degree of protection of shelters in Win8.
Enable WindowsXPSP3 Compatibility Mode in the file properties:

Hanging on the Dam mission (Flood; Rescue Annet)
(checkbox Operation Forerunners at the start of the Campaign)
The camera points to the Valve… and then only Alt + F4.
One of the most famous bugs. No patch, but there is a solution.
It is enough to enable Subtitles for the duration of the mission in Settings (danunaher! saw?!)
There is another way – mission loaded, the detachment is on the Dam, the commentator starts to explain, quickly select any fighter and run forward for both actions (there is no one there yet, do not be afraid); it is just important to start moving before the camera shows the valve.

XCOM How To Master Guide (2014) (/mods/476)
This is a selection of different fixes for EU, a couple of which are still not fixed in EW.
(I recommend to check out what were the errors of alien AI in the EU, in folder “How to Apply R&D Tactical Bug Hunt Fixes”)
We need to fix in EW 2 old bugs.
“How to Fix Increasing Load Times”
This will reduce loading times. (deleting calls to reload DLC resources).

    v1.2, taken into account a bunch of Sentry + Fire Support;
    v1.3, taken into account a bunch of Roulette Improvements + Good Reaction + Fire Support;
    (so as NOT to shoot 2 times at the 1st enemy, but if you want vice versa – use version v1.1)
  • Sequential Overwatch v2.0 (17 Oct 2021) (/mods/735) (compatible with v1.3)
    Burst of shots in order of distance to target;
    No shots through smoke;

EW Hologlobe Rotation Fix by Amineri for EW patch 3 [v] (/mods/474)
Correction, rotation of Gologlob with the left mouse button (famous bug in EW)
(basically, He's not needed, but for example, Alien flagship will hang from the other side)

Improve Soldier Stat Distribution with Not Created Equal (24 May 2014) (/mods/483)
Fixed a bug when generating random stats with the Not_Created_Equal Second Wave option.
The maximum mobility of a soldier is 13, but due to a mistake sometimes there was 14 (13+1).
(uuu! +1 mobility, well, just a poured Flash, aliens terrified!)

Unlock Defender’s Medal (/mods/560)
Medal of the Defender is unlocked after the death of a soldier.
If you play well (no death) then you can't get it, which is illogical.
The game essentially provokes you to substitute a bullet for one of the soldiers for a medal.
Mod changes, the medal will open simply after winning the battle.

Subgroup – Panic

  • No Chain Panic [v] (/mods/474)
    Panic Soldier Does Not Trigger Panic Check for Others;

    1) XEW/XComGame/Config/DefaultGameCore.ini
    2) Open DefaultGameCore.ini with Notepad ++

Disorient Exalt On Radar Hack [v] (/mods/735)
When an agent on mission Exalt activates the Relay, then instead of the Paralyzer effect, Exalt's soldiers will be Disoriented.

  • Show Hit Chances (13 Jan 2016) (/mods/661)
    Shows the real chance of hitting a shot / psi attack (adjusted for hidden AIM_Assist).
    Hidden AIM_Assist was created by kakbe to smooth out the balance in combat.
    It prevents an anomalous series of successful / unsuccessful hits from happening.
    It is he who is responsible for hitting with 1% chance and for misses at 99% chances of getting.
    He helps the player to hit when he loses, and vice versa prevents the player from hitting when he wins.
    (some players prefer to disable it altogether)

X-COM Map Patches (12 Oct 2015) (/mods/635)
Corrections of a huge mass of errors on maps for EW and LW15bf3
(see readme.txt, more than 200 lines of Fixes + Notes + KnownBugs)
When I saw this volume of bug fixes, I understood, that Maps need a separate section.
Check out some interesting bugs here, which explain various absurd situations in the Battle.
(Google translation corrected as best I could – in its pure form, the translation is generally complete nonsense)
(I also do not understand many phrases, do not ask again what was meant)

Bugs of all maps:
-hides bombs / power_nodes / Meld until soldier / scanner sees them (no longer visible through the fog of war);
-unit cannot jump off the ramp(ramp) on the tile, where was the shelter added (vanilla bug);
-in vanilla Meld on the roof can block the window in one of the storage rooms;

Bugs are different:
-CTD game crash, when destroying police cars;
-CTD game crash, when destroying planters at a gas station;
-destroying a planter on one side of a gas station no longer destroys the others;
-allows you to climb overturned cars;
-inverted cars now ignite and deal damage;
-the limousine exploded instantly when damaged;
-if 2x pillars are damaged, the car instantly explodes between them;
-breaking a wall near 2x cars no longer causes them to instantly explode;
-pickups didn't light up, but breaking glass made them explode;
-SUV can catch fire and explode (as intended), but it's not obvious, because he's half broken;
-OLD_SedanC (american cars, 4headlights) deals 10 damage (instead of 6 damage) around the perimeter;
-OLD_SedanC glasses do not break (obsolete object, forgot to update);
-units cannot shoot from this window, until it's broken;

-fixed impassable tiles near the last door of the base;

-graphical glitch on meshes / debris / crates / wagons, they have black areas;
-gas pump stiffness (Firaxis ran a test and forgot to reset to defaults);
-the tree is not highlighted in red in the AOE area (because it was indestructible);

Shelter bugs:
-near the fence of BMP and MEK(One for all) give Partial Cover instead of Full;
-fences block access from the underside;
-fences no longer provide Full Cover in some areas;
-animation of descent from most of the fence is buggy;
-units cannot jump over some of the fences;
-some fences near the stairs serve as a Shelter, but shouldn't;
-invisible trees in bushes and in debris;
-the tree did not give shelter from one side;
-the log to the left of the car did not give a Shelter;
-when the wall was destroyed, the cars next to it lost the Shelter;
-a car(police) did not give Shelter;
-the car after the explosion did not give a Shelter on a certain tile;

-additional cover options add 1 additional tile Partial Shelter next to the ship's engines;

Bugs BypassSflange:
-fences, stairs, sidewalk, carts, benches, chairs, downpipes, plants, cars, trucks;
(the meaning of the bug is not clear from the entries, so I just put them together)
(probably, shots from around the corner of the scenery, shots at the borders between the scenery)
-On the sides (large) doorways;
(there is a general philosophical question – Should there be a Flank bypass on adjacent tiles if the decoration thickness is zero – wall / fences / door / car_door)
(eg, Will there be a Flank Bypass, if a soldier and an enemy are standing on adjacent tiles at the door, and between them a wall with zero thickness)
-truck doors may still obstruct Flank Bypass, confirm;
-the sidewalk did not allow peeking / shooting / Bypassing the Flank of the fighter from the Shelter machine / BMP / MEK(One for all);
-raised the floor near cars on the sidewalk, so that you can peep / shoot / bypass the flank;

LoS bugs (Line-of-Sight / Line-of-Sight Indicators / View):
(those cases, when soldiers do not see the enemy, and the enemy sees and shoots)
Fix Locked View LOS:
-fences (only metal);
-on the borders with the sidewalk;
-pillars (electrical);
-Street lights (in the parking lot?);
-some of the cars;
-half rusty car crash(How is that?);
(30.07.2015) fixed possible LOS bugs, which were the side effects of the patch;
(that is, for some time this patch for maps created new blind spots)

Yes, all evil turns out to be in Maps, not in random!
