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.

It's still available on Nexus, v1.0. If that's any help.
@Vanzgars: Because this mod WAS that and then was changed without previous announcement...biggest dickmove possible.

ADVENT drone are very op at the beginning of the campaign, especially on the legendary difficulty.

Actually the thin men were genetically modified versions of the viper, not an evolutionary precursor. They came after and were an intentionally modified subbranch designed specifically for purpose

@Zachula5 The vipers are supposed to be the evolution of the thin men though, so that doesn't really make sense.

have you thought about adding aliens from the first one, like the thin man?

@AlienPack DIY: Perfect, I wanted to get this variety pack but the ADVENT Drones ruined it. They really could get out of this pack and LW2, but that's just my opinion I guess. Time to do it locally!
@MikeHB: Just look at the "AlienPack DIY Modding HowTo"(sounds like something's redundant there :x)-thread in the discussions-tab. PI(or still LWS at that time) wrote an instruction on your questions themselves.

Is there any way to select which aliens are included from the mod? I was directed here from the Muton Centurion mod and was excited to discover the extra Muton, Sectoid Commander and ADVENT Drone, but am not too fussed about the rest.

If you can't select which are included, how's best to edit certain aliens out without causing bugs?
