This Alien: Isolation mod tweaks the AI of the Alien to fix some issues and provide a similar but more organic experience. The focus is to make the Alien: slightly less unfair, able to surprise you in more diverse ways, and omnipresent but still not all-knowing while creating situations as tense as before. You can find a more detailed list of the changes made to the AI by the mod in the complete description. Thank you and have fun!

Old version of the Improved Alien mod. Should be easier than the current version.

I really like this mod, I think it's even better than the unpredictable alien mod from years ago. I've played through A:I multiple times from start to finish (mostly on Nightmare)and this Alien tweak actually gave me some new scares with its behavior.

I've so far gotten up to trying to trap the Alien after listening to Marlow's story and I have no issues with it at all.

I did however notice something strange: very rarely when sneaking around, I will hear Amanda scream for no reason, followed by the Alien running someplace at a breakneck speed. But then nothing; it's as if the Alien had my location perfectly and was moving in for the kill, but somehow got lost.

It's only happened twice, but in no way did it break the game. This occurs very rarely, and never when I am actually in sight of the Alien. Just a funny quirk I stumbled upon in my playthrough using this mod. But anyway, very good mod, I highly recommend it for veteran players.

Thank you for your feedback! I really appreciate it and I'm glad you're having fun with the mod.

The Amanda screaming issue is a glitch coming from the game, as far as I know, it could be because of wrongly placed trigger boxes (like in this example Youtu.be).

As for the Alien running to get you then stopping, I think I know what's going on. When the Alien is in "intense" mode, I configured it to be able to calm down in only 3 seconds. Maybe if it takes longer to get to you then it causes that effect? In any case, I'll investigate and do my best to fix it in an upcoming version.

Thank you for reporting this, have a nice day!

any chance to download .5 version? I think the 1.0 is too aggressive for me

Hello!
The easiest for you to lower the difficulty would be to do it via the in-game option.
There is no official download for v0.5 but I can send you a link to do so if you're interested

I'd also like to try the less aggressive v0.5 version. Would be really great if we could choose both.

Is anyone else not getting the alien at all with this? Like I'm firing my revolver off and nothing. I tried putting the backup files back in and still nothing.

Hello!
The Alien should show up with this mod :) Maybe you are in a section of the game where the Alien is not present? The backup files should work too, if you have any trouble with the installation, please contact me. You can find all instructions in "Info.txt".

In case you really cannot back up your files with the provided backup, you can use the "Verify integrity of game files" option of Steam, "Verify" option of the Epic Games Store or "Reset" option of Microsoft Store to reset your game files to their default state (note that it will erase all mods).

I hope you can solve your issue soon.

doesnt seem to work on nightmare difficulty. this really showed in the first long alien encounter in the med bay.

it was only searching the same rooms as me and would keep checking them endlessly to the point i thought he might have been glitched from the mod and thought i was trapped hiding. but he went away after a while. this behaviour makes it seem like he doesnt search a bigger radius around the player. he didnt give up on prey despite nothing confirming suspicions and if he goes in the vent its consistently only for 10 seconds or so.

i was hoping i would get a challenging nightmare in a different way. by having less predictable gameplay. like giving up searches faster for a chance to be caught making a move or retreating to a vent to drop down randomly again sometimes right next to you. but it all looks the same. there was some vent hiding. cant confirm if it would randomly check them still.

Hello!
The mod should work correctly on nightmare difficulty, a lot of testing was made using this difficulty (as it is my personal favorite). I can also assure you that the Alien searches in a bigger radius and gives up on its search much faster :)

The balancing of the mod maybe doesn't suit you? It changes things but it is still close to vanilla.
However, the issues that are affecting you are exactly the one that the mod aims to fix. Do you notice a difference at all with the mod installed compared to vanilla?

Maybe the aggressiveness of the Alien (which was increased in the last update), should be taken down a notch?

Please tell me what you think, have a nice day
