I would honestly just buy them off traders. They already come pretamed so you just have to train them a bit. They do eat a lot of food, and since you have to give them meat or kibble it is a bit more work than raising herbivores. I would honestly just buy them off traders.

'Long extinct giant arthropods, brought back to life as a part of the Megafauna Project. The biggest flying insect to ever exist, meganeura, just like modern dragonflies, is a highly specialised predator. Swift and agile, it used to have no aerial competition, which was one of the reasons why it had evolved to be so gigantic.' Description A giant, genetically-engineered predator with massive paws to rip apart prey. Thick fur allows it to survive the coldest of climates, whilst it strength allows it to hunt even the largest of mammals for food.
Predator-Many carnivorous animals hunt on their own, such as the fox or wolf. Some omnivores like bear hunt too. These predator are either dangerous when roaming free, since they tend to mistake your colonist and animals for easy meals. When tamed you can exploit this.
FAQ for Rimworld AvP mod.
When it’s ready!
Xenomorphs are NOT currently playable. while this is a planned feature, it won’t be available for quite some time, as it requires Major reworking of how the game plays for it to make sense and we want to do it right, so that its not just another alien race skin. This is no simple task and no ETA can be given.
CE Patch courtesy of Saebbi. Any bugs relating to it, please see the patch page.
Not yet implemented.
Short answer is maybe. While we like the games like everyone else we do not consider any of them canon except Alien: Isolation (which was stated by Fox as canon). So we might find inspiration in their work, this mod is pretty much our own take at the AvP universe. We use the movies and the novelisation as source material, everything else is debatable.
The most common cause is not having the two required mods (Humanoid Alien Races and JecsTools). Make sure these are installed and loaded before AvP.
This is usually because mod options have been disabled. Please ensure that they are ticked. If you are adding the mod to an existing save, please make sure you have Orion’s Faction Discovery.
There should be an operation to remove both facehuggers and embryo’s in the Pawn’s surgery tab. They are very risky, however, and may result in death of patient among other things. If the option for the surgeries are missing, there is likely a conflict with another mod.
Please see Marking page.
USCM faction and equipment will be included in v1.5. WY will be included in v2.0.
The AI is still a work in progress, and bound to be buggy. The Xeno nest building AI uses a modified version of the vanilla infestation cell finder, and can on occassion be derpy (more information coming to the GitHub wiki). Trapping Xeno’s: Queen’s will not lay eggs in captivity currently. Baby Xeno’s are invisible and VERY good at escaping. Good luck keeping it contained.
'The perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility.'
- Ash (from Alien).
Xenomorphs are a large, predatory Alien species that rely on forced impregnation of other species to reproduce. They are easily identifiable by the shriek that can be heard from over five kilometers away. Visually they are notable for being over two meters tall with a black, highly reflective carapace that has been said to 'glisten' even in the dark. They are virtually impossible to kill without military grade weaponry - rumours circulate that they may be vulnerable to extreme temperatures. They have been aggressively expanding across the outer rim worlds of the galaxy, leaving only death and viscera in their wake. They have an insect-like society with distinct roles, primarily: A queen, responsible for birthing Xenomorph eggs, a 'facehugger' that implants live embryos into human hosts, and various warrior and worker species that gather live hosts and bring them to the nest for impregnation. Nests can typically be found near man-made or naturally occurring sources of heat, such as nuclear reactors and terraforming equipment. Nests should be reported to the local USCM branch immediately. Curiously, they have no known means of space travel, and all observations of the species made so far indicate that they lack the intelligence necessary to operate even basic machinery. Survivors claims that the Weyland-Yutani corporation is a common sight on recently infested worlds although they have staunchly denied any involvement with the species.
The Xenomorphs are extremely dangerous and should not be approached under any circumstances. If you do happen across any member of the Xenomorph caste, your only priority should be escape. Teams of highly trained USCM marines have been engaging the Xenomorphs recently in an attempt to curb their rapid expansion. Such actions do not seem to have impacted the Xenomorph numbers whatsoever and it appears that they have begun pulling back from the outer rim worlds. If you live on one of these worlds, do not expect rescue.
- 2Life Cycle
Xenomorphs can appear through various incidents, including They Mostly Come At Night, Crashed Ship Parts, and infected pawns that may wander onto your map. Once there, Xenomorphs will try to form a hive and make it grow by hunting down and capturing pawns around the map and bringing them back to said hive to infect with a Face Hugger.
Life Cycle[editedit source]
The full life cycle of a Xenomorph is implemented.
Face Hugger[editedit source]
Rimworld Taming Predators
The life cycle of a Xenomorph begins with an egg, called an Ovomorph. It contains a Face Hugger. Xenomorphs will bring back hosts to their hive to place near the Ovimorphs, to allow a Face Hugger to hatch and then attach to the cocooned host. After a period of time, the Face Hugger will impregnate the host and eventually fall off and die.
Chest Burster[editedit source]
After a while, an impregnated host, will wake up, and if not cocooned, will proceed to function as normal, while the Chest Burster gestates. Once gestation is complete, the host collapses in pain, writhes around on the floor, and then the Chest Burster explodes from the hosts chest, killing them. The newbown Chest Burster will proceed to try and flee, and hide until fully grown.
A Chest Burster will become invisible once it gets a certain distance away from hostile pawns, and will regain visibility if in range again.
Adult Xenomorphs[editedit source]
Once fully grown, the Xenomorph will join a hive if available, otherwise, they will attempt to start their own by kidnapping potential hosts, cocooning them, and waiting for cocooned hosts to transform into Ovimorphs.
