List of Donators to this mod:

Deuce_Savage who has donated twice already, many thanks to him for his support.

Donation is not a requirement to play this mod when it comes out but it is a very appreaciated courtesy that is a clear sign of support from those that are following the mods progress. Other forms of showing support are equally welcomed.
The development of the mod is not dependant on donations, there is no one else with more desire to play the final version as the members of the team and so although it may take a while to be finished, the mod will someday be finished (unless something really bad happens, let us certainly hope not!). That said if you wish to donate to the mod team contact me through private message.

This month I have some good news and some bad news to report but don't get worried right now.

Upcoming Release

Let us start with the good news first, shall we?
The mod is scheduled to be released on the 25th of December 00:00 GMT. Consider this my gift to you on this holiday season.

This video refers a short description of what will be available on this release and contains a short version of this news.


As a preview of what is available in the mod consider this set of images:

I really hope you enjoy playing this mod :)

2018 and forward

Now for the bad news.
I am leaving modding temporarily but it can be become a permanent exit.
I am on the early phases of a completely new project: my own RTS game.
That means starting 2018 I will be spending most of my time off work developing things for this new project which leaves no time for modding (especially because my job takes a considerable time as well). It is something I have been planning to do over the past years and I simply cannot delay it any longer.

My plan is to try and get some funds during the development process to pay for voice actors, 2D/3D artists, sound artists... that might assist me during development. But it is not going to be easy.
I have setup a patreon page to try and help me with this part ( Patreon.com ), so we will see how it goes.
Currently I am saving for a powerful desktop to help me with the development of art assets, lets see how that goes as well.

I expect lots of work but it is something I have been considering to do for over a decade. I have not named it yet but my first project is a fantasy medieval RTS, I have some background written already, as well as unit lists and starting 2018 I will focuse on concept art and later actual 2D/3D art. The game itself will follow a pay me what you want monetization scheme, so people can get it for free or pay what they think the game is worth (I expect most people to get it for free), with the money being saved to pay for the artistic assistance of this project or future projects. If I get lots of funds I might use it to acquire additional development hardware/software but I have no intention of having profit with this sort of thing.

Thanks for reading and I will see you around, in a different context, yet still around.

Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

I remember before seen models techguard made on the basis of guardsmen and tech priests. Have you refused to use them in mod? There is an opportunity as that to receive these models for use in a mod?

Minor patches may be a possibility but adding new races is not something I will do.
I advise you to read the "2018 and forward" section of the latest news for the major reason that won't happen.

It might seem I have been quiet for some time but do not think it means things haven't been progressing.
Most of the latest updates cannot be seen though... although they can be heard ;)

hey can you make your mod less claustrophobic? i'd like to have smaller units and buildings so that my units don't always get stuck on each other. and make battles more open instead of fighting in tunnels all the time.

i was thinking why can't the space marines have ig as early units?
and could there be gue'vesa for the tau?

The units available for each race are closed and it is highly unlikely there will be any new addition.

The space marine suggestions doesn't fit the desired gameplay and would cause the mod to be "filled with redundant units and tech, casual unfriendly difficulty, overcomplicated balancing, and only for multiplayer".

yes that does sound a bit hypocritical of me
