Long War Alien Pack

By Pavonis Interactive

This mod adds a series of new enemies to XCOM 2. It is an update to the Muton Centurion pack and replaces it entirely. It includes:

* Muton Centurion, a Muton leader with the ability to inspire its allies
* Muton Elite, a powerful Muton who can dominate in battle
* ADVENT Drone, a small, nimble crowd-control robot that hunts for hidden enemies
* Naja, an alien sharpshooter related to the Viper
* Sidewinder, a speedy alien skirmisher related to the Viper
* Sectoid Commander, a stronger sectoid with area-of-effect abilities
* ADVENT MEC Archer, a mechanized unit built to bombard at long ranges
* Chryssalid Soldier, a larger, strong Chryssalid
* Hive Queen, a monstrously large Chryssalid
* ADVENT Sentry, a soldier specializing in overwatch abilities
* ADVENT Grenadier, a soldier with a grenade launcher
* ADVENT Rocketeer, a soldier with a rocket launcher
* ADVENT Gunner, a suppression specialist
* Many of these have upgraded versions that appear later in the campaign, and the mod includes upgraded Vipers and Archons as well.

If you prefer just to use the old Muton Centurion mod, it's available as v1 of the Alien Pack on the Nexus ( http://www.nexusmods.com/xcom2/mods/5/?). v2 and later is the full Alien Pack, the same as this mod. You should unsubscribe from this mod to get it working properly.

--------------- COMPATIBILITY ----------------

This mod swaps the vanilla class X2Action_WallClimb.

----------- TROUBLESHOOTING ------------

NOTE: IF after the update you are getting floating ADVENT heads or other issues, you should exit the game and REGENERATE YOUR INI files by deleting all files in \Documents\My Games\XCOM2\XComGame\Config. These will be recreated on your next game start. (Additional tip: You can preserve your options settings by NOT deleting XComEngine.ini in this directory.)

NOTE 2: The Alternative Mod Launcher tends to give bad information about our mods. They don't conflict with each other.

DO NOT LOAD THIS MOD WITH LONG WAR 2. Its features are already incorporated.

Pavonis, any chance you'll make this compatible with WOTC?

@the_reaper95 long war 2 already has this and all the long war 2 mods included thus tlel u not to load both at the same time. This is for when you want the long war 2 aliens but not long war itself

I am confused about these mods. Are these content mods for Long War 2 or not? It says Long War in the title, but then in the description it says DO NOT LOAD WITH LONG WAR 2.

So do you need Long War 2 to use these mods or not?

Compatible to WotC?

If they dont update the lw2, tho it wasnt all the great to what they did to the game but they can at lest update theses standalone ones along with adding the coils. thats the only reason i played it to get the new tiers. They or someone should do a weapon models of the differnt tiers for the dlc guns/spark/launchers/swords. It be cool to see them and etc.
