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?

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
