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.

Port for WOTC is now released - see below! :)

The port will also include the other LW2 troops (shock trooper, vanguard, commando, sergeants & LW2 captains) that were missing from the original. Hive queen has been removed though due to janky AI, lack of new abilities and bugs with.how the game handles unit size. I miy fix if I get time but this is low priority until I get the rest of the pack 100% working.

For those interested, I am currently working on a port of this for WOTC - should be released in the next month or two. If you're interested in helping playtest the project hit me up on the modding discord, thx :)

I just found this mod in my Subscribed List and can't remember ever subscribing it. Was it added automatically with Long War 2 ? Is it still working ?

Is there any chance someone can update this please? The new launcher may have broken it. Also if it gets updated possibly can we see new enemy types? Like Advent soldiers with only pistols, or holding a stun lance and shield, maybe a pistol or shield?:)
