Hey all, I'm the current Tyranid Mod administrator. Just so's you know, I don't check my personal page regularly so I am liable to miss any comments you leave me here. Anyone wanting to give feedback on or ask questions about the Tyranid Mod should do so at the Tyranid Mod page or the Tyranid Mod forum (check my homepage link). :)

We're making the mod more combiner-friendly.

Turns out I've had bacterial pneumonia since November, so yeah a teensy bit sick. -_-

Yeah but he could mean something else, which is why I asked him to be specific.

And yes, hypothetically they can build quite a lot of Reclamation Pools - but to tech up, they need to spread thin and take over as much of the map as possible, so it's not as big of an advantage as it seems.

Just a general comment update rather than a full news post:

We've been receiving some assistance from Gambit, who's been streamlining our code, fixing bugs (no more sync errors!) and addressing issues like "how do we handle Influence in Quick Start games?". So he's been putting in a lot of hard work on that front.

Additionally, as I've mentioned a few times before, we're upping our inter-mod compatibility by breaking the mod into component mods.

And when I can breath properly again, I'll be trying to improve the Influence UI - make it a bit more 'niddy.

Those are our major developments so far, hopefully I'll have enough for a full news update soon.

I'm gonna need you to explain - using actual building names - what you're having trouble with.

The download is an exe file.

Run the exe file, then follow the "Next" buttons through the installer.

I actually haven't come across this issue before, I recommend raising it in our forum:
Tyranids.gameapollo.com

Ja, we have more animations and more sounds. We are also making the build button waaaaay more obvious.

Four. Last release was in 2012. It's 2016. 4 years. Technically, 3 years and 7 months.

Just that we're in the home stretch development-wise. RL delays are slowing everything down like usual.

Okay, what's the file's name?

Yeah I'm not gonna lie - it's weird how hit and miss the AI is in the current release.

There's an AI Control Panel program in your Soulstorm\Tyranids\data\ai folder which will let you tweak the AI.

It's possible if you ramp up the difficulty it'll work better?

Have you tried the CPU player patch?

It has mixed success at fixing the issue.

zahaqiel @ 0.5b3: Even More Developing

Should be dealt with in the new release. It's apparently not something we can patch in the meantime.

Did you activate the mod in the Game Manager option in the main menu when you started the game?

It sounds like your computer has some really screwy filetype associations and I don't have an answer unfortunately. It's an exe file, it should run as its own executable.

...Activate "Tyranids GDM". Great Devourer Mode has no population limit.

To find that out you'd have to check the warnings.log file to see why the game crashed... and I imagine the UA team would be better at answering the question than we would.

Sorry about the delay - lot of real life stuff been going on. What I would recommend is in your match's game options, make sure your resource rate is set to standard. If this has been changed at any point previously, it may be held over into future games which will affect your Influence income.

If it's set to standard and the issue is still occurring, then I would recommend uninstalling and reinstalling the mod.

Is the installer a .exe file?

Because if it is, I can't help you. If it isn't, then try downloading it from our forum instead.

Read the FAQ in the news post or look at any of the numerous times other people have asked.
