Ultimate Apocalypse Mod

News - Until THB Release part 2!

Video News Above:

Mod Progress

Going well. We have 1 major thing to do (Will take the longest time):

  • Finish Inquisition Daemonhunters faction.

We have 3 moderate things to accomplish (Moderate amount of time):

  • Continuation of bug hunting and play testing

Then release. Don't ask when.

Edit: May 6th, 2015:

Ok, 200 subs I said? Make that 300, thank you!!! :D

Edit: May 5th, 2015:

Lord Cylarne (creator of UA mod speaks): Well. :D Looks like I wanna do a 200 subscriber special!! This... is unexpected, awesome, motivating, I feel blessed, and I mostly want to thank YOU, each and every single person for watching my videos, and especially for those who subscribed!

I mean here I was less than two weeks ago working my butt off trying to achieve just 100, and it took me a month to do. I was expecting... not this and it is remarkable. I was expecting to get 200 subs in two months, 300 in three months, etc. but I come on today and I AM FULL OF JOY!

Thank you guys for enjoying (at least some) of my content. I dunno what to post for my 200 subs special because I thought I'd not get there this month so I didn't really put any thought into it, but, I'll think of something...

But yeah anyway, I'll shutup now. Again thanks for 200 subs!

THB release and what it is:

THB stands for "The Hunt Begins". It is a grand release of 2015, not a patch, and the version number will be much different than 1.74, we're talking around version 1.8. The Hunt Begins is all about the Inquisition Daemonhunt versus the evil and twisted Chaos Daemons! All factions will receive new content, and there will be so much added to it, that took us over a year (almost) to achieve.

We know we said that THB would not take too long to get released, but fortunately, it is another 1.73 release as it is BIG, and even includes two new factions to play! All races were further polished and made nicely, plus what THB will bring is pretty much finished skirmish and is the last and final skirmish overhaul. It is official.

Version 1.73 was supposed to be skirmish overhaul and final, but then over time, we realized the flaws of most factions, and so THB revamps them to an all new and fun style. We know you will like all factions, at least better than 1.73, and we hope to continue the campaign after this! :D So THB release, full skirmish overhaul with two new factions. FUN! NExt grand release afterwords? Campaign and stuff. We'll see how it goes.

Keep in mind THB grand release will not be perfect. There will be bugs to fix afterwords like 1.73 release, and we hope to continuously patch it and patch it just like 1.73 versions. Only this time, you guys will have everything, so whatever we offer, you guys get immediately! :D - A clarification of what THB is.

In Other News:

Do not discuss or ask for release dates (even though it might be coming this month of May):

Here is why:

  1. If a promised release date is given and does not come out, the hype will be for nothing.
  2. Time Zones. If a date was to be scheduled on say, the 19th, and it is the 20th in your area, this will make confusion on the other side of the planet.
  3. We have no idea when the mod will be released. Mods are time consuming, and large projects like this will take time to polish and make a wonderful release out of.
  4. We are remaking and implementing two fully functional new factions from scratch!!!
  5. We are revamping the skirmish gameplay completely in the THB Grand Release.
  6. We are revamping the AI completely in the THB Grand Release.
  7. Mods take time to make. Less people demanding, the more the creator is inspired to work on the mod.
  8. Keep these 7 reasons in mind the next time you want to ask for release dates...

I've been hoping that "The Hunt Begins" might be released before Phoenix Comic-Con. Maybe. I just want to play the damn thing, I'm super hyped.

We all do, just hang in there man. Modding is not the easiest thing (especially large modifications like this) and I'm sure Cylarne is working on getting it to us when it's really worth playing as apposed to unfinished and unpolished cause no one likes to spend the next decade patching things.

Well, I did say "could've", which maybe I interpretate differently because my native language is Spanish (also turbo tired atm), but for me it means "there was a *chance* of a mess".
Still, you'd do well on not underestimating how fewlish people can get. And it ain't something from this last few years exclusively, know that phrase from Einstein? I.imgur.com

Yes I know, it's just somehow I can never suspend my belief of how ignorant and corrosive people can be in real life and especially on the internet. I'm certainly not naive I just figure we would have evolved past such things in the last century or two consider how long we've been around. Einstein certainly had it right.

I have a question about the orks. I played against them on insane countless times and they only build elite units like Commandoz, Nobz and tons of vehicles. Is there a way to make them more prone to use Choppa Boiz more often like we would see in the campaigns? (They do build Choppaz but only at the begining.) I just think it's more Orky to relentlessely attack the enemies with overwhelming numbers rather than technology and powerfull units.

I do think common troops should scale. Units become obsolete way too fast.

Hehe. next time you play orcs try rushing to free slugga boyz, give them all upgrades and build 4-6 boyz hut. Set the waypoint at sopme appropriate place ( the enemies base for example ) and right click the sluggas production.

Its not unstoppable, but it is effective. Not at least as it costs you nothing and you can just sit and use your resources to throw in any heavier unit you may want for that increased waaagh feeling. (for effect you'll probably want a strong warboss going first)

Also remember that everyone of those spammy disposable units can throw grenades. Taking down super heavies with anti-vehicle grenades takes a bit of work but its fully doable

I don't mean they should only use Choppaz but they could use them a lot more than they do now.

GreenScorpion May 21 2015, 10:38am replied:

Yes, spamming lower quality troops would fit orks background but ingame it would just mean endless slaughter of weak troops unless mob benefits were significant enough to compensate for the lack of technology. Mob benefits can be applied depending on squad members or soldiers with a mob value in a certain radius (from the same squad or not) and so could be used as a balancing factor when orks existed in large numbers but low quality. The problem could be that an early mob would be devastating unless those benefits had some technological requirement.
People being attacked by wave after wave of boyz would likely consider it a spam race and avoid playing against as few elite units would appear on the battlefield.
