Adds the Cryo Priest enemy from A Better DLC as a standalone unit, it does not depend on A Better Advent like the original mod does. (Although that doesn't mean you can't use it alongside this mod)

It still has the Better AI changes from the original mod and is not scaled down to "vanilla" levels.


"The ADVENT Cryo Priest, this is what happens to the standard ADVENT Priest when, for whatever reason, they lose their psionic powers. They are given special Flamethrowers that have the standard incendiary fuel replaced with a type of mysterious chemical that's so cold that it burns and causes the ground to burst into flames. Anyone that gets frozen by one of these will be riddled with frostbite and will quickly need medical treatment before the effects get more severe. Trust me, I've seen what happens to people who don't receive treatment, and it's probably worse than just getting shot and killed by an ADVENT Trooper’s Mag Rifle. The Cryo Priests are also armed with the standard ADVENT pistol and frost bombs that I suspect our own was designed after. As for their role in the ADVENT Coalition overall? To either keep enemies frozen while other units execute them or to immobilize them for capture, although the latter behavior is much more rare and unlikely to be seen in combat."

I would like to thank the following people who helped me out on my journey for creating this port including:
Original author: DerBK
bloodsplatBOOM: Lore tab improvements

If any bugs arise, just comment down below and I'll try to get to them, there probably shouldn't be any trouble though.

Alright so I was watching a couple of people's Xcom Let's plays and in one of them this unit worked fine but they were also using a Better AI (not a Better Advent) while someone else was I think not using that mod.

Anyways there was a vip in the other guy's vid who was by themselves and ran into a pod of a Priest, Cryo Priest and a Mec, when it came to the Cryo Priest's turn they just shot at the air.

Now until I get more info I'm going to assume either this mod will require A Better AI or the Cryo Priest can't target VIP's, so I've added ABAI as a required mod.

Ahhh, gotcha.

Maybe in the future but I can tell you that the Advent Titan and Spark work perfectly fine with just A better AI, Spark functions normally but the Titan is missing a primary weapon (Which you can change to an Advent rifle in the ini files) but is otherwise functioning fine.

The Cryo Priest in that pack does not however work with only A better AI, part of why I made this mod actually, you could go through the files and "delete" the Cryo Priest from that mod. (I think you could anyways)

Nice. Wouldn't mind seeing a standalone port-over of the ADVENT Titan as well? (They kinda make a nice slow moving, armored companion of stun lancers)

Yup, glad to hear, enjoy.

I had a talk with another modder about it and you should try deleting the mod from the steam workshop folder which is located here (C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\workshop\content\268500).

Then, you should remove that mod's entry from settings.json in the alternative mod launcher.

You will find the mod under the same number as the one in the wed address which is https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1561740813

So the folder will be called 156174081, so delete that.

I did switch the mod to hidden a few times to fix a problem that was going on with it, after I fixed it I had two different versions of the mod in the Alt mod launcher, check if the same is with you.

I subbed and resubbed and this mod shows up as hidden and not installed (btw using the alt mod launcher). Please fix it. Thanks.
