Ultimate Apocalypse Mod
News - December
We are very close... close enough to say that the biggest release yet to come as you all may know from "Early November News", is very "almost" complete in global. Most factions are taken care of, the two biggest factions, such as Inquisition and Chaos Daemons are complete, and polish is almost done. What would be left to do is new content fixes, such as new units created from our modeler and icon needs from new content, those provided from our community manager/icon man.
On top of that, we hope to make the AI VERY SMART, and playtest it for balance fixes. So you can expect at least good balance and great AI upon the release of UA - THB.
1.73 Patches Progress:
You can expect 1.73.9 this week... if today was Sunday, so starting Sunday, you will get version 1.73.9 within that week. You can expect major changes applied to Necrons, end game changes applied to Tyranids, and nerfs for Tau Montka units and a crude bug that is in general fixed. On top of this, many other things are to come, and if you play the UA mod, this is the version to get. We may also add a new unit! :) Who knows...
1.73 Bonus content/fan made content:
You can expect them released starting Sunday and not much later. The fan made map pack is ready for release, and it will contain a BUTT TON of stuff that each of you can check out, like Apocalyzed maps (MUCH recommended download (especially if you play the old Apocalyzed maps)), fan made mods (count of 5), and a little more within it, including 1 secret surprise inside. ;) The Apocalyzed maps were also very much improved, which also fixes many of the bugged maps released within the 1.73 map pack.
As for the next grandest Release (name):
It will not be called UA - DODA. Our 100% apologies for the confusion, as some of you, including me would admit, it is not a very good and catchy name + it is kinda long. So some time after it was named UA - DODA, we decided to call it UA - THB (Ultimate Apocalypse - The Hunt Begins). It fits the IDH and Chaos Daemons explicitly, and it is shorter of a name, plus more catchy. I like it, and upon the next grandest release, it WILL NOT be called UA - DODA or UA version 1.74, but instead; "Ultimate Apocalypse - The Hunt Begins." Again we are sorry for the confusion, but it is what it is.
As for the next grandest Release (status):
All percentages are not based on a mathematical equation and are made up by the feel of completion by the developer. 100% completed could take as little as a day or as big as several months to accomplish.
