Kapow! We're back, and it's been a while too, so I'm going to just get on with it.

Covenant at War

The Covenant, until recently they've been playing curiosly small role in the mod, with only three ships and two fighter classes to fend off the UNSC's various weapons of destruction, but not anymore. The mod Halo: Sins of the Prophets for Sins of a Solar Empire ( are good friends of ours, we've been working with them and trading models for quite some time and now they're helping us fill in the Covenant shaped hole in CaW.
The first ship to be revealed from this trade is the Covenant Destroyer, fully skinned and ingame:

And yes, before you ask, we are indeed working on a troop hog aswell.

Hardpoints, points that are hard

To help give the mod a totally new feel we've been re-designing everything, no matter how small, and today I'm pleased to bring you a first look at our new hardpoints, well, the ones for the engines and the weapons, you'll have to wait till next time to see our shield hardpoints.

Apex Studios Weekly Update 27/07/2010

Something's missing...

And that something would be Anh, he's been disconnected from the internet for quite some time, so unfortunately you're not going to get to read his usual wall of text and awesome, sorry guys, maybe next time.
Speaking of next time, it's won't be for two/three weeks due to me being exceedingly busy, but trust me, when the wait is up, it'll be worth it, have a good few weeks everyone, see you on the other side.

Short but sweet, like the hard points, are you doing anything to vary them depending on the hardpoint themselves? for exampel will a light cannon have the same logo as a heavy cannon?

that would be cool but ive noticed in most mods that change the hardpoints just stick to the same icon for lasers all around. but this mod isnt just any other mod hehehe

Hmm, just wondering, would you do the new Reach hog or is that too recent.
