Make Neutralize All Enemies Objective Optional
This mod changes Guerrilla Ops and Retaliation missions by making the Neutralize All Enemies Objective Optional. This permits you to evacuate after completing your primary objective in Guerrilla Ops or after saving 6 civilians in Retaliation without failing the mission. You can still kill the aliens to get experience, loot, and corpses, but you are not required to do so to complete the mission.
The purpose of this mod is to make missions more objective oriented. As this mod makes these missions strictly easier, you may want to combine this with mods that made the game harder, or play on a harder ddifficulty.
Retaliation missions have no interface issues. However, if you evacuate or squad wipe on a Guerrilla Op mission after completing the objective, the game will say Mission Failed. The sad music will play, your soldiers will be sad etc etc, but you will still receive all the benefits as if you had completed the mission (strategic resource, dark event countered, and new event / point of interest to scan).
Keep in mind that evacuating or squad wiping on a mission means you will not receive any alien corpses, whether or not you completed the objective.
