  1. The summer build is here, but this time I am focusing more of polishing, re-balancing and fixing stuff rather than implementing new stuff. But don't worry new stuff are on is way. They are now officially on the Interim Apex server. -Let's start with the overhaul of some existing units with new visual model. such as M1128 MGS, with the new overhaul and suspension changes. Capable of reaching a top speed of 17m/s in 5 seconds time. M1134 ATGM has been overhaul now with the ATGM missile visible the viewer may know if the vehicle is fully armed ready to fire or require reload ( empty barrel ) Mk.2 Matilda Hedgehogs make a return with a facelift and having a mortar/artillery capabilities to launch spigot mortar. Stridsvagn 103 now the entire tank will tilt with the gun when you aim up. The secondary fire now have been swap out of twin machine gun on the right corner of the tank which is offset from the barrel. M3A1 Bradley now drive smoother on the terrain. In addition, the TOW Missile on the right side of the Bradley Turret have visible ammo capable to viewing the TOW missile in it when it has ammo. M6 Linebacker now comes with 25mm Autocannon and 4 Stinger Missile ( Ai Control ). The style of playing this vehicle has been changed being able to move fast and engage aircraft. Below here are the massive change log which is not sort out unfortunately as I got my hand full. I am 90% sure I have all these changelog recorded. Well the other 10%? Well I just got to remember to put it on changelog every time i adjusted some stuff.
  2. I've been playing IA for a while now and I haven't paid much attention to the faction forgotten. So recently I tried to use forgotten infantry units whenever I could, and I have a few ideas to spice them up... or at least make their price tag and time it takes to capture the forgotten hub worth the effort. Thus I will discuss each unit below. 1. 150$ Mutant Assault : Not much can be done with this guy to improve, he's the cheapest and he regenerates in tiberium... he's basically a purchasable visceriod. (Ironically it would be funny if he turned into one on death) 2. 550$ Mutant Scavenger : This unit is fairly flat... it's just an overpriced engineer, except engineers pack more explosives, get better pistol headshots, and the free ones can build an ok/poor quality rifle turret. Thus I was thinking give him something unique, maybe a forgotten turret like a flame thrower or disc/grenade launching turret, something to be proud of. I'll go as far as to say remove the C4. I've not seen it used and besides there is the demolisher unit for stationary explosives anyways. 3. 650$ Mutant Assassin : I like this character except he has one big drawback he has to go to a tiberium field to heal, which makes him vulernable, because most of them are either in the open, in a valley, or lacking cover. Not very ideal for a sniper. So I was thinking give him an RPO-A Shmel (if I remember correctly in tiberian sun the forgotten often fired rockets). It doesn't have much range but it will say stay back to anything that may drive up on him. 4. 700$ Mutant Demolisher : He is rather fun to play, but lacks one important thing... self defense. And no I know what you are thinking... I am by no means saying give him a gun, that idea would be absurd, I would rather see him have a self destruct weapon or have more C4 explosives than that. What I would like to see is him have is a knife attack, but call it tiberium claws or something catchy. I tried to infiltrate and detonate a building with him once. And I found I either had to waste the C4 on the attackers or place it on the MCT and try and stand in the way of it's defusing. I jumped around like a moron and died with no building destruction. 5. 850$ Mutant templar : I found this unit a well rounded and very versatile unit. He is like Dr. Mobius, but with a machine gun and longer range. The range and accuracy make this unit worth the price as it does good damage to infantry and light vehicles. The templar is unique and fits well in it's nitch. I have no suggestions at this time. 6. 1,000$ Mutant Marauder : I am not sure where to start with this unit. It's a large, slow, and a semi-effective unit. I say semi-effective because he does less damage than Sydney or Ravishaw and is unaffected by upgrades (last I checked). The two units like him surpass him and can be upgraded to really surpass him. Sydney and Ravishaw also move faster and are smaller targets. To make matters worse the Marauder has a harder time dodging, finding cover, and combating infantry. I tried infiltration with him to see if I could use him in a non-field environment, and found the plasma gun does too much self damage for most indoor scenarios (that and the combined previously mentioned issues with mobility). This unit is not worthy of a 1,000$ price tag. It is a nice attempt at an apex forgotten unit, it looks big, tank like, and scary... till it moves slowly and fires its' gun. Recommendations for the Marauder. Option 1, he could get an ammo and hp boost to make him a endurance character. Also it's fun to be a constant pain in the butt. Even if your DPS is not at optimal efficiency. The low damage already exhausts ammo, yet the downside is someone on the other team can be a pain in the butt if the forgotten hub changes sides. Option 2, His plasma gun could be repurposed in a way unlike the portable ion cannon or rail gun; the plasma gun could have a slower projectile, but higher damaging projectile. Meaning light and fast vehicles (also helicopters) can dodge the shot, but larger ones won't. This would work well for stationary artillery, mammoths, tick tanks, and anything not moving. It would fill a nitch. The downside would still be infantry combat. Option 3, increase the plasma gun's range. this would make field domination easier (no need to leave the tib field) and increase the effectiveness against aircraft (which Syndey and Ravishaw already have). The downside would be the weapon out ranging minor base defenses. Option 4, add more grenades. This would be useful for both field combat and close quarters, since he cannot hurt himself with tiberium grenades. If not incendiary or emp are both nice touches to add for grenades. The downside would be increased efficiency against infantry (and emp grenades would make him devastating against tanks). I hope to see the discussions these ideas generate.
  3. I cannot join interim apex renegade. I downloaded launcher, installed it, logged in, set my ingame name, but the button "join server" is not clickable. (already restarted pc and launcher ofc) Some help? TY!
  4. Interim Apex now fully supports 4k resolutions. The HUD is properly sized and the mouse speed in the Purchase terminals is correct. The game looks beautiful in 4k. Anyone with a 4k display make sure you set your resolution to it for the best experience.
  5. These are just a handful of in-game stats that literally don't make sense. Figured I'd ((((post)))) and get some feedback to why they are the way they are. why can mutants heal themselves? -Mutants are trash units to begin with by why give them tiberium based weapons that they can use to heal themselves? After changing the visceroid thing so they don't heal mutants, why do they still have weapons they can just use to heal themselves anyway? why does a stinger have limited range and why does an AT rocket out range a stinger missile? -not even bringing up the difference between a rocket and a missile; you guys do realize stingers have like 10x range over AT rockets right? why can a banshee out range AA defences and why can infantry out range base defences? -I never understood the reasoning behind why lots of vehicles (excluding something like artillery) can out range base defences to the point that they can be picked off without any effort. Why even have the base defences in the first place? why can EMP grenades disable drive trains AND firing systems? -Pick 1, I mean it's not like an EMP affects combustion engines anyway. I'll give you aircraft but idk why my tank is affected by an EMP grenade.. why do a few ob guns spawn at the start of the map? -You put a 3 minute timer on these things like they are overpowered but then hand them out of like candy at the start of the map. Why?
  6. Since November 2016, Interim Apex has been seeing complete overhauls in new damage systems and visual aesthetics of the multitude of vehicles and structures! This upcoming build will deliver even more of that! The long-awaited new naval warfare is here! Captain ships from Frigates to Battleships and wrest control of the seas from the enemy. Masters of the seas who rule the tides will turn the tide of battle on land. On another note, barriers and barricades have been readjusted. Players have noted that they may have been too strong, and as such we have come up with a solution! The introduction of the Bangalore Torpedo Engineers and Sapper Class will allow players to clear obstacles with ease thanks to these units having the proper equipment for the job. Currently, there is no changelog until the second update. There's just so much stuff yet to be overhauled! However, we do have a log of some units that will be removed for the time being. BS-3 100mm Gun (WIP overhauling) ZIS-3 75mm Gun (WIP overhauling) M163 Vulcan (being phased out temporarily) And in returning units, the Nod Sa-8 Gecko stands to challenge the GDI Mim-72 Chaparral. The Gecko is an anti-aircraft unit tasked with keeping the skies clear for Nod. For maximum efficiency against GDI's air wings, the turrets are automated. While on the subject of aircraft, they too have been overhauled, both visually and in controls! The GDI Orca. The staple of the GDI air force, and an excellent support unit in any advance. The Nod Apache. While not as impressive as the GDI Orca, the Apache still boasts firepower to tackle ground threats as they approach. New Constructions Options! Introducing 2 new features. The Tiberium Field will soon be depleted and require some sort of alternative way to "Grow" Tiberium. Now both faction has introduced some sort of contraption which is to accelerate the growth of Tiberium crystals as they are now can be easily depleted when you over harvest. Above is a example of the GDI Pioneer ( Nod Pioneer has one too ) but this I show an example. SInce the introduction of barriers, barricades and obstacles, both side find it rather annoyance to deal with. Now with the introduction of Bangalore Torpedo to both GDI and Nod respectively, you can find them in the Nod/GDI Sapper or Engineer unit. They must be place relatively close to the obstacle that you want to clear, once you deploy them you must ignite the fuse by simple keep repairing it, as the fuse goes live, stand clear as it will detonate shortly. There will be 3 consecutive explosions. Last but not least, the long awaited upcoming map - Winter Assault! It has taken me a long while to optimize it, and I will continue to further optimize after initial release. One could ask, "Is that it? After two years of development?" Worry not! There is much more to be implemented yet, but until then join the server and see for yourself the massive changes in-game! See you on the battlefield!

  7. I suggest we revert the server updates from the latest revision. The changes have drastically altered gameplay to an entirely new environment where barely anyone (excluding server staff) is aware of actual statistics regarding the units they play with. As usual, in an effort to "rebalance" the game (for the 70th time) the only thing accomplished was reshuffling units to generate the exact same disparity between them. I'm not quite sure why there's an impression that more change more often will generate a larger player base when it can barely retain its current one. The administration at the 3/16 servers that people actually play on is so dissociated from it's dying playerbase that they persistently insist they're representing is single handedly driving this game into the ground. I'm genuinely not surprised older C&C games maintain a larger playerbase that this game could ever hope to have. If your goal is to destroy this game once and for all, please stay the course.
  8. I was playing the test sometimes when the server was open, well I saw that you guys did a good job and I look forward to enjoying it with my teamplay friends
  9. some people complain about low FPS. as you know renegade uses only 1 thread which means that if you disable Intel hyper-threading (not sure about SMT in AMD CPU) you will double the CPU usage for renegade/APB/interim apex = more FPS it works great in my old laptop with intel core i5 430M
