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?

In other news:

Competition - UA Official Logo

Is now officially our new logo and will be displayed everywhere possible upon the THB release. We are very glad to replace our old logo, and very soon, this will be applied as our official UA mod logo! You can see more details here:

Moddb.com

or click on the image itself above!!!

We are doing the contest again, and we already have three other logo participants willing to publish their items in the future! You can be one of them! ;)

A gist of what we can promise you THB will bring:

  • Inquisition Daemonhunters
  • Chaos Daemons
  • New advanced AI for all races, including but not limited to: improved competence and for some races, tactics the player may not expect.
  • AI relic unit and titan fielding error is fixed
  • Some AI with multiple strategies
  • More strategies will be applied to all AI after the THB releases (patches as there is not enough time)
  • Way improved build order + build base strategies
  • Less AI city building (less structures fielded until they get loads of resources)
  • All other factions receive new content
  • All other factions receive greater and better polish better than 1.73 version factions
  • Better gameplay
  • More encouragement of capturing Strategic Points + Critical Locations especially
  • More balance
  • Changed up music
  • Changed up and fixed main mod theme
  • New extended gameplay
  • Less spamming of relic units and titans
  • Elite units cost more, especially more required population
  • Relic units cost more
  • Changed up relic resource in general
  • More winconditions
  • More maps
  • Fixed winconditions
  • More abilities
  • More units
  • More structures
  • More research
  • More addons
  • More races
  • More fun

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

We cannot wait to see the THB release at last! Sorry it took us a while to post the news.

I say that if The Hunt Begins is truly close to release, like a few weeks at most, then just wait for it. Kind of a waste to release a patch before a major release if you ask me!

Exactly my opinion, better wait a little longer for a big release than a quicker patch. You guys already do great work, just take your time :)

Why would anyone want a new patch for something that's gonna be obsolete in a few weeks is unknown to me. Definitely wait for THB.

As a final note thank you for the time you took to make this mod.

I'll wait but can you make the SM Honor Guard attachable by the Force Commander ,the 1st Company Captain and the Chapter Master? and can you make the Lieutenant's Leman Russ Upgradeable with Fok's wargear and weapons instead of the vanilla UA russ' weapon upgrade and lack of Wargear?

Isn't the Honor Guards already attachable with any commander? I thought I fixed that within one of the patches?

if thb is released in maximum 1 month and half..its useless to release 1.74 before. If more..why not ?

I vote with a 1.74 patch and then THB later on. I'd much rather wait and get a perfect, fully-functional release instead of something loaded with bugs that would just have to be fixed later anyway.

And, if I may add, BY SLAANESH that's alot of promised content. Seems like, when TBH is eventually released, it's going to be a massive game changer for everyone. I'm particularly looking forward to the new AI and maybe the Sisters of Battle will get some love? Maybe a new melee unit or two?

Sisters of Battle is getting new stuff, new nice gameplay stuff everywhere, like research and neat changes, but as far as new units go, there are none I'm sorry to say as there are none to be found...

I'm a bit confused if you want a patch or wait. It seems contradictive sort of.

I hope you will make relic units more powerful as they become more expensive (not so much the titans but the lesser relic units like the baneblades)?

PS- Im definitely in favor of waiting as well
