Ultimate Apocalypse Mod

News - February to Early March


It is time to let the public know that the mod is very, very close to its release. At this stage, the UA mod team is hoping to do something special because of it. Within this month or March (at the worst possible scenario), the second to the last alpha mod internal versions of the mod and so on will be caught on video and displayed to the public as we are in definite need of public feedback, and definitely some finely tuned views coming in. We will not mention where they are or where they will get posted, so if you want to see live videos of "The Hunt Begins" public videos, then it is up to you to find them! xD Note that they will be posted at random times with continuous slow or fast updates and at no estimated time of arrival. :D

But here is the bad news. It may be or may not be (depending on the audience) a 1.74 patch. The grand release of 2015 (The Hunt Begins) is close to release, that, making a patch for something that will only last like 15-40 days seems like a good effort to be placed within the grand release itself. Avoiding the confusion of the difference between what 1.74 is compared to "The Hunt Begins" would be good, too, but it is up to you guys if you want to deal with the balances of 1.73 versions until "The Hunt Begins" is released. I'm not saying 1.74 patch is cancelled, I'm saying 1.74 patch could be cancelled if the audience just wants THB and if the team agrees to stick with THB also. Up to you guys! Do you want a 1.74 patch or wait a bit longer?

In other news:

Competition - UA Official Logo

Is now officially our new logo and will be displayed everywhere possible upon the THB release. We are very glad to replace our old logo, and very soon, this will be applied as our official UA mod logo! You can see more details here:

Moddb.com

or click on the image itself above!!!

We are doing the contest again, and we already have three other logo participants willing to publish their items in the future! You can be one of them! ;)

A gist of what we can promise you THB will bring:

  • Inquisition Daemonhunters
  • Chaos Daemons
  • New advanced AI for all races, including but not limited to: improved competence and for some races, tactics the player may not expect.
  • AI relic unit and titan fielding error is fixed
  • Some AI with multiple strategies
  • More strategies will be applied to all AI after the THB releases (patches as there is not enough time)
  • Way improved build order + build base strategies
  • Less AI city building (less structures fielded until they get loads of resources)
  • All other factions receive new content
  • All other factions receive greater and better polish better than 1.73 version factions
  • Better gameplay
  • More encouragement of capturing Strategic Points + Critical Locations especially
  • More balance
  • Changed up music
  • Changed up and fixed main mod theme
  • New extended gameplay
  • Less spamming of relic units and titans
  • Elite units cost more, especially more required population
  • Relic units cost more
  • Changed up relic resource in general
  • More winconditions
  • More maps
  • Fixed winconditions
  • More abilities
  • More units
  • More structures
  • More research
  • More addons
  • More races
  • More fun

Now let us talk about the THB release:

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

We cannot wait to see the THB release at last! Sorry it took us a while to post the news.

I hope that you guys made one Grey Knight Terminator almost as strong as one Bloodthirster. That's how it should be currently. I assume since they will start out in a squad of two, each one's health is probably 6875. I also think that they will have a defense and an attack bonus against Daemons and Monsters alike.

Melee Damage: 295-395

Ranged Damage: 120-150

Neat. Keep up the good work mates.

There is a thing known as 'Game Balance' and Cylarne tries his best to make everything balanced and fair, making a Grey Knight Termie basically have the same stats as a bloodthirster is a little OP and i doubt it will happen.

what do you mean by saying "stronger than bloodthirster" ? Every commander is already stronger than almost any daemon because daemons arent effective against commanders. And if a squad of 2 grey knights would have almost 14000 health game balance would be broken as hell. If Im not wrong you want them unbeatable so you basically saying they should add Chuck Norris squad.

Hmm, well see here, how about two or three Grey Knight Terminators for one Bloodthirster? Much more legit. And no unit in the game is unbeatable if you have the right counters for it.

No. Just no. A single Grey Knight, termie or no, is nothing resembling a match for a greater daemon, lore-wise. GK take dozens or hundreds of losses, if past lore is anything to go by. That's assuming it goes their way. Obviously, for balance reasons that can't happen, but it should take 3 squads minimum to even have a prayer. It was supposed to be impressive that a Primarch (Sanguinius) was able to solo one. A lone GK would get absolutely curb-stomped. They can solo lesser daemons. A bloodthirster, not so much.

Sanguinius also soloed an army effectively of super soldiers and daemons, and the Primarchs can from my experience with them solo everything short of the Chaos Gods, so I never saw how him pimp-slapping Ka'Bandha was more impressive than the feats Primarchs had already accomplished(Not to take away from him as he's my favorite Primarch!). No, a single terminator isn't a match for a bloodthirster normally but then again remember that certain greater daemons are stronger than others so would require more or less resources to deal with it, I mean Anggrath is WAY stronger than your standard bloodthirster, because if you follow that train of thought that every bloodthirster fight like Khorne's favored ones then dreadknights are as strong as Primarchs.

Yes. Just yes. If I recall correctly, Lord_Cylarne is making or has already made the Space Marines (including Chaos Space Marines, Grey Knights, Terminators, etc) over quintuple the amount of strength than before in version 1.72 (good times) due to even more less reinforcement numbers, so that's a plus. Not to mention them having attack/defense bonuses too.

Well, lets put this into perspective. Are we talking a Grey Knight, realistically, or are we talking about Ward Knights? Because Ward Knights have plot armour and +7 saves of ********.

Well, I can tell you this; in one Skirmish, I had applied the Hardcore game rule on Insane difficulty. I had five Grey Knight Terminators against a Daemon Prince and a Bloodthirster. I only lost two squad members. Since Space Marines in general are even much more stronger now, I can't wait to try out the Daemonhunters Grey Knights to slay some Daemonic or Warp scum. Greater Daemons won't even win or compare against this nerf and what it has to offer. Lesser Daemons won't even stand a chance!

You are using arbitrary stats of a mod as well as modified game rules as the basis of your argument, when others are informing you of tabletop lore and canon.

Look, if Cylare is making every type of Space Marine in the game fewer in squad number, then obviously, they're gonna be as powerful as hell, especially the Terminators. They are almost unstoppable now than they were even in version 1.72. Now maybe two Grey Knight Terminators (no more than three) would be enough to take down a Bloodthirster. Their wrist Psycannons are DEVASTATING against Daemons and Monsters. Any more than three GK Terminators needed for one Bloodthirster, that would put them at a level at or lower than standard Grey Knights.

Well, if its lore wise of what we're speaking, ogryns shouldnt be that strong either, hell in 1.73.8 they could chow down anything and i mean ANYTHING, it was fun while it lasted while clearly broken and it didnt make much sense.
Now if we speak of a terminator squad of gk with a loadout of 2, it would kinda mean that theyre meant to take down big units, and left kinda useless amidst an army, since they should be slow and easy to kite.(Just like a wytch squad deals insane amounts of damage to sole commanders or vindicare assasins one shooting commanders).Its a matter of roles, and it can be seen fit, since the greater deamons will be a rather spammable unit from the deamon army,thats just my opinion.

Hmm, I saw in the 1.72 change log that Space Marines in general have been declined slightly in number and costs more, thus the tradeoff of them being much more powerful and elite. Terminators and other similar higher tier units have been amped as a single squad able to hold their own against a whole army. Currently after their changes, they might could deal with two armies, much more than just one, especially after weapon upgrades, and/or research. Now, in THB, they are even MORE powerful, super elites even, and have quadruple the amount of strength than they had in the 2012 Grand Release. The Space Marine squad member load out reinforcements are half of what they were, and I doubt it will get any lower. It's perfect, the way it should be. Now, Astartes (Space Marines) are ultra strong, able to dish out any Infantry, Daemon, or Monster threat.

Greater daemon are spammable but at the cost of relic points (1000-1400 from what I have seen) which seems kinda overpriced compared to the price of land raiders and baneblades.

Will community map packs be incorporated into THB at release? I downloaded a big set of maps and it's made the game new again. Would be good if they came inside THB though for people who don't know about them. This is where I got the download from Dawnofwar.filefront.com

To... be honest, I have no idea if I'm going to just incorporate the maps with THB.

The problem is though, the size of the mod will be much bigger.

Otherwise! The map packs are already up in fanmade addons v2.
