6 comments by ChromeAngel on Jan 9th, 2015

Since July of 2014 DontAsk4470 has been contributing new and improved features to Exterminatus to introduce a new hivefleet and new shaders compatible with Source Film Maker. Beta 8.10 is the culmination of this effort, with both races re-branded as Hivefleet Leviathan and the Blood Ravens Chapter of space marines.

  • Smoothed the animation of the tyranid HUD flood bars.

Work is in progress to update the other chapter skin packs to use the new marine skin features and cope with the change to the default chapter.

If you are one of our 1800+ watchers you may have been caught out by the mod's change of image. To go with the mod's new look I'm switching to out classic logo, the Source "tag" around the classic GW Tyranid logo.
