I'm confused, to say the least. Can you rephrase your issue?

Some general install troubleshooting:
UA_173_installer.exe should open simply by double clicking it. Then follow the steps in it until it's done.
Ultimate_Apocalypse_Patch_-_1.73.9.7z must be extracted with an archiver program like 7-zip or WinRAR (right-click the file > select "extract files..." > input your Soulstorm directory).
More info on this demonstrative UA install video: Youtube.com

Joke aside, while deffkoptaz would be pure awesome, can't add a unit if there's no usable model for it :/

UA Fan Made Addons v2 (revised & fixed) download link: Mega.co.nz
Simply extract to your Soulstorm directory and that's it!
If you're looking for the maps or the Eldar team color patterns, these are set so they're installed in UA by extracting the 7z file to your Soulstorm directory, no additional actions required.

Compressing and uploading 576MB all over again for TWO characters in a text file, because doing things optimally is for chumps.
Also disabled the previous download link, just to make sure.
Enjoy, I guess xP

*sigh* A misconfigured .module found its way into the revised version...
It's two miserable letters, but the Macabee mod for UA included in the pack won't work unless that's fixed.
For now, if you've downloaded the previously uploaded revised pack, you can fix the Macabbe mod for UA with this file Mediafire.com (put on your Soulstorm directory, replacing the current one), or manually by editing macabeemodua.module with Notepad and changing
RequiredMod.3 = macabeemodua
to
RequiredMod.3 = macabeemodss
Save the file and the Macabee mod for UA will load correctly.

Uploading a fixed version of the Addons as I type this.

I've successfully revised the UA Fan Made Addons v2 and reformatted it into the tried and proven "extract to Soulstorm directory > done" compressed 7z method :)
Currently uploading the file, will link it here as soon as it is done (20-something minutes if all goes well).
On further good news, the "revised" version has better compression so it's 576MB, meaning a significantly shorter download time to wait for.

PSA of sorts:
It has come to my attention the UA Fan Made Addons v2 are a mess to set up. Partially I'm to blame because I just uploaded the file I received without checking it, under the overly optimistic assumption it wouldn't be something that'd require lots of guiding to set up.

So I'm currently reorganizing it into a simpler-to-install format, but it'll take some time (a few hours approximately, unless rl decides to barge in, so no guarantees) until it's done, tested and uploaded.

If you want to get the Fan Made Addons v2, my suggestion is to wait until the revised version is available. But if you can handle yourself with extracting files, opening multiple folders, then extracting more files, feel free to try installing the currently uploaded pack.

So, about the Fan Made Addons v2:
It was already uploaded here on ModDB back on the 11th, but there was some issues and the file was deleted, did what is in my power to restore it in the 12th, but there has been no response whatsoever from ModDB yet.
So here's a mega.co.nz download link Mega.co.nz

Y'see, problem with this punch is there's a chance the ork will not only survive, but also become richer off the teef he got punched down.
Always aim for (the brain bits of) the head, even with melee weapons.

Before replying anything here, I did a few quick web searches on the matter. Unsurprisingly, an anti-theist argument crumbles before 10 min or so of web research.
This is bad. Why would it be bad? Think your average internet dweller. Can you imagine that kinda people bothering to do ANY sort of properly thorough research? If they search anything, they just get fed whatever they find in the first page of Google search (a least than efficient way to get unfiltered search results). If you're lucky, they MIGHT check it on Wikipedia.

Here's two of the links I've found:

Since I'm a terrible guesser, I'll ask you on what exact step of installing the UA this issue pops up.

If you've already downloaded the 1.73 installer and this problem occurs while running the installer, most likely your copy of the installer got damaged during the download and you'll have to download it again.
If you get this problem while trying to download the installer, there's a number of things that could cause this, but for now try saving the file on a different location than and/or using a different download mirror.

There's also this demonstration video on how to install UA, might help Youtube.com

P.S.: It might not seem like much, but thank you for asking nicely. No, seriously. It makes a difference. Think about it this way: Would you like to help someone who asks for help yet does it in an aggressive, demeaning way?
Therefore, thank you :)

PSA of sorts. For multiplayer to work properly you need:
- All players involved *have* Tyranids enabled.
OR
- All players involved *don't have* Tyranids enabled.
A "mix" will result in the inability to see your friends' game(s) on the multiplayer lobby.

Yes, this is a quick and easy fix to the dreaded "can't see multiplayer games in UA" issue. Huzzah!

If you edited UltimateApocalypse.module so these two lines do not have the '//', you've got the Tyranid mod version 0.5b2 installed, and you're running UA, you REALLY should have Tyranids in-game.

Before installing everything again, make sure that stuff is in place. That being:
- Tyranid mod 0.5b2 installed
- UltimateApocalypse.module edited so tyranid-related lines do not have '//'.
- Actually running UA (might sound silly, but the UA-themed loading screen is shown regardless of what mod is being loaded, this can lead to confusion)

You can enable Tyranids in UA version 1.73.8 by following these steps:
- Install the Tyranid mod version 0.5b2. You need that version in specific, older versions won't work. Download link: Moddb.com
- Go to your Soulstorm directory and look for a file named "UltimateApocalypse.module" (this of course, after installing UA and the 1.73.8 patch)
- Open it with Notepad
- Inside it, you'll see the following (among other stuff):
//RequiredMod.5 = UltimateApocalypse_Tyranids
//RequiredMod.6 = Tyranids
- Delete the '//' from these two lines, so you'll get:
RequiredMod.5 = UltimateApocalypse_Tyranids
RequiredMod.6 = Tyranids
- Save the file, and done! Next time you launch UA, Tyranids will be in the race selection.

As of version 1.73.8, Inquisition and Daemons are not supported. They will be reintegrated to UA in version 1.74.
