Allows X-COM to research and recruit alien hybrid soldiers, with their own separate armors and in-born psionic powers.

Mod Information

Current Version: 1.3

If the downloads don't work for you, check out zip attached to the first post in the forum thread.

 

This is an ultimately fairly simple mod that lets X-COM research how to create Alien-Human hybrids and then recruit them for use as soldiers. In order to get them you'll need to research Psi-Labs, Alien Reproduction, and a Sectoid Corpse.

Hybrids have slightly lower stats in most ways (lower starting stats and lower caps), but have much higher psionic potential and come with a built in psi-panic attack, the same way mind controlled aliens do. They also have a custom set of names, so they'll show up being called things like "Subject Delta" or "Experiment 003". Once you've unlocked them you'll also be able to research and manufacture a personal armor equivalent for them, and a slightly worse version of power armor for them.

 

Credit goes to Solarius Scorch for the unarmored hybrid sprites, XOps for the armored ones (which I then spliced with the former to get the sprites in the mod), shadics for the sprites for motorized armor, and Zane for the motorized armor inventory sprite.

 

To see images you can go to the forum thread, since image uploads don't seem to be working correctly.

 

IMPORTANT: A MOD THAT ALLOWS YOU TO COLLECT ALIEN REPRODUCTION (LIKE THIS ONE) IS REQUIRED TO BE ABLE TO RESEARCH THE HYBRIDS

Alien Reproduction is a vanilla research topic, but without a mod there's no way to get the alien reproduction item.

Install Instructions

This mod is formatted for the lastest nightly release and relies on features that aren't in the 1.0 Milestone.
