So, I had a thought that the weird shooting through walls and floors in XCOM2 might be caused by one of my mods. It got real worse fairly recently after all. So I did my usual mod-clean procedure that I have used on Skyrim (and now Fallout 4) many times. Uninstall the game and then delete all the remaining folders related to it so that none of the mod files or stuff unaffected by the default install can affect the new install. Then re-install the game.
Only this has a new step. When about to re-install it, remember that you had some wonderful work in the character pool and you are pretty sure that doesn’t get synced up with Steam so you just deleted 2-3 dozen amusing XCOM2 soldiers you put a decent amount of creative effort into creating. Damnit! Well, I got a deleted file recovery program that manage to grab some of the files I remember being in that folder. I just have no idea if the one I think is the main one has the custom stuff in it. At least I’ve got a decent amount of screenshots of the ones I made that I can hand-copy the amusing bios from. Screenshots for steam games are in their own folder and are completely unrelated to the actual games. Still sucks though.

A bit melancholy, a bit sweet, very touching. It’s got mythic Alicorn worldbuilding and pony civil bureaucracy. Two of my favorite flavors of ponyfic.
Amusing and fluffy. Once again a story uses the idea that Subset doesn’t find humans physically attractive.
Totally unbelievable. The idea that someone can find dozens of online artists to commission cartoon pony porn? Totally ruined my immersion. Hee. But for realsies, fun story. Pinkie Pie reacted pretty much perfectly and the punchline at the end was funny too.
Hee. Best one if the three, though the buildup of the first two probably helped. My favorite bit is the brief flash forward a few hundred years. Though a close second would be Starswirl suggested to be a pervert. Then again, the joke underlying the whole story, that Twilight gets as obsessed and over the top with her porn collection as she dies everything else that catches her interest, was amusing the whole way through.
