I’d like to make a mod that would add dogs as a combat unit for XCOM 2. Dogs would be deployed on the battlefield as a part of the squad. During combat, dogs would behave as scouts and support units, revealing positions of enemy pods, finding units in concealment, highlighting objectives, distracting and temporarily disabling or attacking enemies, carrying supplies.
Enemies will be able to engage and kill dogs. Dogs would be hard to hit, but they would have a small amount of health. Similar to soldiers, they can be critically wounded and start bleeding out. They can also be healed and stabilized using medkits, as well as carried and evacuated.
If you’re a patron, you can view the design document for this mod here.
I love dogs. I had a dog as a kid, and generally I have a lot of respect for service dogs and the mutually beneficial partnership our two species have established since ancient times. So I’d like to do them justice and make a proper epic mod for dog action.
Some time ago I did not consider a mod like this to be possible, but there have been some breakthrough recently in porting existing assets and animations, and looks like this mod might become a reality one day. It would require me to collaborate with other modders, as a lot of people want a piece of this pie, and I wouldn’t be able to make it entirely by myself anyway.
