Its finally ingame! :D

I like how the DE part of the taskbar from the last three screenshots got a makeover; fits in perfectly. So are biomorphs going to work like addons (as seen in FOK), abilities or weapon uprades? I also like how the UI representation for influence got a makeover, but what's the pink box meant to be?

I did say not to read too much into the UI. :P

Non-weapon biomorphs are researches, weapon biomorphs for the most part are like standard weapons upgrades. Unfortunately the HT has to work a little differently because of the way weapon-upgrades work, so they're on-Tyrant researches that are specific to that Tyrant.

Ah okay, I understand how they work now. I look forward to trying the Hive Tyrant out :)

Perhaps you can zoom in a bit on the Hive Tyrant though? I'm not too certain at what I'm really looking at from this angle.

Have a look at the HD view - it's a lot easier to make out.

This thing is teasing me, I really want to put it on the battlefield. How long until we can expect the newest release?

So does this mod conflict with many other mods such as Titanium wars mod?

Taken from our unit-testing map, here we have the Hive Tyrant standing next to a Tyranid Warrior.

NB: A lot of the UI elements here are earlier than our current version of the mod, so don't read too much into them.
