Hello there, over the course of the last month there's been alot going on here at Apex, two of those things you're about to be shown, we're saving the rest for later *tease tease*.

I know you...

We start today with the arrival of our old friend the UNSC Pelican Dropship, now modelled, skinned and ingame:

This beautiful unit is the combined work of both Anh and our newest member Ulmont, needless to say there's alot more where this came from... but you'll have to wait for that ^_^.

You I'm less familiar with...

Today we're finally filling the gap where the UNSC Station should be, unsurprisingly, with a UNSC Station:

Apex Studios Update 14/08/2011

This thing will form the backbone of your defenses and is a key part of building your fleet, much more so than in vanilla FoC, but there'll be more information on that in later updates.

Always look on...

That's it for this time, we shall return soon (although not until after Reading Festival at the very least :P), so for now, don't forget to:

I don't care if you could fit your youtube vid on Yoda's ear tip -- if I can play a Halo RTS on the PC, and have epic ground battles, then I'm content.

man whats taking so long i mean sw eaw foc came out in 2006 and im pretty shure that u guys started making this around that time(if im wrong please correct me) so whats up?like if i were a idiot(wich im not)i would think you're just having troubles but no i think that you're just wasting peoples time. really it shouldnt take 6 years to make a mod its not like you made a new game its a mod so whats taking so long?

Blamtroid began 2008, but the one we are currently making actually started mid-2009. Nearly all of us are either in school or university and don't necessarily have time for proper modding.

Indeed, the team has been decreasing since 2008 as, for example, one of our moddeleres found a job in the gaming business. Some just disappeared and currently we're with 5 modders left (including me). We had to redo a lot of stuff and as Anh mentioned we're pretty busy people. Best part of it is that we're all perfectionists too. We will not release anything unless we know for 100% sure we took care of all bugs and glitches.

Also, you mentioned we're not making a new game. We're not indeed, but we are deffinately changing the gameplay. This needs a lot of time and effort to get it right. And when finished it'll be quite different from the Eaw/Foc gameplay. We did not want to 'just' add in new units.

Also, tracking this mod is a choice. If you feel your time is being wasted there is a good alternative for this mod for Foc (Campaign Commander by The Farseer). Just pointing that out.

Well thank you for answering my message I don’t know where I read it but someplace somewhere on the internet I saw 2006 but now that I really think about it, it might have been some other mod idk so I guess I am an idiot ha-ha. Also you should get more perfectionists like yourselves to mod this game as it would go faster and would save you the trouble of doing it all you’re selves. And for the most part I don’t pay that much attention to the mod except every now and then because I just really love halo. Also I really have high hopes for this game and hope that it is at the highest percentile of completion, design and favoritism that would not disappoint any halo fan out there. So I hope this mod ends up as well as you say it will.

This is a dumb question more than likely but are you going to rename the planets/ and or move them in the galactic map ?

We're renaming them, giving them new maps and to finish it off we will move them. But not for the first release, as the first release is aimed at skirmish (due to time restraints).

Thanks. I'm really into the lore of the Halo franchise even more than the games lol. I'm really looking forward to seeing this from you guys. It must be hard work but from me and quite a few Halo fans, keep it up. Be the the programmers we need you to be.
