Created on 23rd May 2019 during the waiting period for the new Arma 3 Expansion. Many speculated that it will include aliens. But in case it does not, this quick addon will give you some solid quality aliens.
I've purchased three alien character models from Turbosquid and made them usable within Arma 3. (Adjusting size and sekeleton to work).

The aliens speak their own language!

The creatures are found under:
Independent -> Aliens -> Men

Contents:
- Alien Scout Model
- Alien Brute Model
- Alien Commander Model
- Alien Hybrid Hunter Model
- 2x Alien Language Radio Protocol


Watch out for the Brute and Commander, as they are heavily armored. Bring enough ammo to take them down.
All Aliens are placeable by Zeus.

This is entirely unrelated to Global Mobilization. It is just a fun little project for the evening without any stress or pressure. 🙂

No, as stated this project was started just today during the hype and speculation leading up the to reveal of Arma 3 Contact. I thought it would be funny to release Aliens for Arma 3 after the reveal because I did not believe they would do this theme. 😄

thats some creepy looking alien, pure nightmare fuel, sharing a lowpoly version of the body for other people to create gear for it could be a good idea

@mondkalb: I have a small request if I may. Is it possible to make those models available through the uniform slot?

Even if it's a hidden classname, it would allow easy access to those models via the most commonly used script commands and would be very usefull for mods and missions relying on dynamic loadouts. 😉

 

And to be completely honest, I'm thinking that the hybrid hunter skin would be awesome on the Ravage zombies - it reminds me of the infected from XCOM 2. ^^

Heya Haleks, this is already available.

_unit addUniform "mbg_uniform_alien_01";
_unit addUniform "mbg_uniform_alien_02";
_unit addUniform "mbg_uniform_alien_03";
_unit addUniform "mbg_alien_hybrid_01";

The units you can place in the editor are actually "naked" models. So by giving those any other uniform they can shape-shift into humans. 😄
Using the code example above you can transform humans into these aliens.

Please let me know if this works, otherwise I'll find a solution that fits your parameters.

 

Edit: The classnames are a bit of a mess. This was all a super quick project, sorry. 😄

added forcefields to your aliens...    Place this script in Init.sqf of mission, or call in a config for addon.   They admit a small glow until field is depleted by hits. When hit the glow grows brighter for a short time. They do not take damage till after field is depleted.

 

  I may rework it later to take into account kinetic energy, and explosive damage to effect the shields. Used Damage taken instead. Works just as well with less works and less FPS hits.

{
	private _unit = _x;
	if (typeOf (vehicle _unit) in _Alienlist) then {

shield pic.... Video would be better though. The blur is something else unrelated to the alien shields.
