1.73 - What you are missing out on by not playing!

So it looks like you guys need an update! After the version 1.73 release, on top of being an extreme hit, we have unfortunately encountered a lot of missed bugs that was missed. 1 years worth of work and a team of 9 let these bugs slip by? Heresy!

The Ultimate Apocalypse mod team proposes to release a patch...

What patch version number 1.73.4 will include is via the following...

  • All scar errors from the two winconditions: Hardcore and Assassination will be fixed.
  • All AI fatal execution pause errors will be fixed.
  • Test map that came with the Tyranids mod, due to its functionality will be removed.
  • Icons that are pink will be fixed.
  • Some ucs descriptions that are left over will be fixed.
  • Balance changes from global powers used by the Orks and Tyranids.
  • Tyranids will no longer be under powered and so this enemy can now finally be dangerous...
  • A lot of other things minor fixings to make the mod functionally work well.

You can find all bugs reported on this list here...


Not all changes will go into effect however. Chaos Space Marines fitting into the lore seems to be at most people's dislike, etc etc. With big changes to an entire 1.73 full race concept, and from people's reports, chaos mark system will take a lot to rework the faction, and they will not be in a small patch like this.

1.73 - What you are missing out on by not playing!

Other changes like Over Powered Orks with Fighta Bombas blasting up bases like nothing, Ork Warboss leftover IMBA melee damage, global abilities infuriatingly annoying at points, EMP superweapon duration disabling everything for a long time, Wracks black texture... a lot of that will be fixed. It is a very long list.

Another Orky Update - The Great Gargant

Otherwise as for new units and more content... it's a maybe. No guarantees, but if new content is found, and is ready to implement into game, then we might include it within 1.73's patch. Behold for example, Cosmocrat's brand new unit, the Great Gargant!

So if you like playing this mod, especially version 1.73, but is TIRED of all of the errors, then you NEED this patch. You NEED this patch. You NEED this patch. Did I mention you will NEED this patch? If you still do not play the UA mod and you are a type of person interested in grabbing our models, you NEED this patch. You NEED this patch. You NEED this patch. Did I mention you will be NEEDING this patch?

1.73 - What you are missing out on by not playing!

Texture errors... new textures on some units, bug fixes, FUNCTIONALITY, yeah you will NEED this patch. Otherwise I hope everybody has enjoyed the UA mod thus far regardless of the bugs we missed for the past year testing this. We had beta testers of 1.73 in the past come into the team, got the mod, and left us without response, and so this entire time, we had... null feedback. The entire team of 9 tried their best, but we apologize we let these bugs slip. Though, 1.73 is MUCH better than it usually was, that's for sure (Dark Eldar AI corrupting all other AIs hence mod not playable at all).

So thank you folks for reporting these bugs! Without you, without so many feedback... this patch would not be possible and 1.73 would remain not touched until 1.74. Thank you also to the donators who donated in the past. I know version 1.73 took a freaking YEAR to get released, but you inspired us proudly to make this version updated and updated even on school days and without you, believe it or not, 1.73 would not have been released yet. Anyways, thanks for the donations, we will strive on to make this mod better and better + not rely on <= 10 people to play test the mod before final release (like release a beta and have audience test it for us...)

So that is the news for version 1.73! If you are still interested in playing, BE AWARE OF:

  • Hardcore wincondition
  • Assassination wincondition
  • Eldar AI
  • Tyranids AI
  • Test map within the scenarios
  • Edit: Space Marine Scouts (do not turn on infiltration)
  • Edit: Sisters of Battle: Textures by LeonardGOOG causes the mod to crash due to DOW Engine RAM limits.

Stay away from those options! If you by any chance find more bugs (critical bugs that stops game), please report immediately within the 1.73 bugs section!

Please download 1.73 below and try it out!


As for version 1.74, it will be under production perhaps... next two weeks because of real life issues (donate to speed up progress). However, we will not release percentages including how much completed the mod is (you all know why) and we will not provide release dates (you all also know why). We will however post updates to... well, not signal the mod dead of course. xD

I'll stop typing then, I promise. xD Have a great month, folks!

This is not a requirement, and by donating, the Apocalypse mod team will be active doing up the mod, releasing updates, and providing more epic entertainment than fooling around with other stuff.

Why provide donations? Over 50 members have, and they were rewarded with what they wanted to see in the UA mod, and because of them, this mod is continued in development. We have explored it all in this mod, and we are not inspired by passion anymore, so by these wonderful donations, well, just look at the progress!

Oh why thanks. :)

Well... we aren't THAT fast. :p We get things done as soon as we can, and if we got to make something perfect, then we take as long as we need as quick as we need and try to dodge school hours because of inspiring donations. :)

Though I do admit, the 1.73 release did take a while... would have been longer otherwise, though.

I absolutely loved the 1.73. But the Chaos faction is overpowered in my pov. I played skirmish vs 2 CPU players in Hard mode and the AI Chaos beats the AI Dark Eldar in less than 15 minutes.

Especially when I play 1 vs 1, the Imperial Guard doesnt stand a chance vs Chaos. Before 1.73, I could beat the CPU even in Harder mode.

i had a question are u guys going to add the steel legion and the dark angels. steel legion dark angels. I think itd be badass if u did eventually because my fave part about this mod is all the races and there not just rehashes of space marines some chapters have unique units and unique ways how they fought in the lore.

Unfortunately, new races in the UA mod are very hard to... Apocalyze. New races, from experience from the past takes too long to revamp them completely into Apocalypse mod due to free time limits also.

I stopped adding in more new races after realizing that there is an endless trail of races from Games Workshop and its codexes...

Besides, I think 12 races is too much. 9 races was already enough. But that is my opinion.
