Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War delivers a level of visual detail never before seen in an RTS. Hundreds of units clash on the battlefields of the dark future, unleashing massive destruction through a stunning battery of long-range weaponry before closing in for the finish. Incredible kill animations bring science fiction combat to life like never before, and the gritty future-gothic Warhammer 40,000 setting provides a striking tableau for the chaos and carnage of this grim, dark future, where there is only war!

To all Codex fans,Codex is branching out with a stand alone mod for the campaign function of SoulStorm. Still in the brain storming stage, but the plan is to use the Codex Mod for skirmish function and The Codex Campaign for campaign function.One of the pieces we are missing is a mapper, if there is any mappers out there and want to join the team please contact one of the team members thank you.On a side note we may have a modler in the team soon and the first job he is doing is very cool

ok, lol. Ok heres the races for Warhammer 40,000: (i know because i collect tabletop ;))

*necrons (i collect em)

*spacemarines (ultramarines, the main spacemarine chapter) (i collect them too)

*tau (starting to collect em)


*imperial guard


*chaos spacemarines

*dark eldar

*witch hunters

*and many different chapters of spacemarines, heres lots of the em... Blood ravens, Deamon Hunters, Black Templars, Space Wolves, Raven Guard, Crimson Fists, Iron Hands, Salamanders, Revilers, Hawk Lords, Storm Lords, White Consuls, White Scars, Red Templars, Mentors, Imperial Fists and thats all of them that i know of.

*theres also different kinds of followers of chaos like nurgle, zeentch (i don know how to spell it as i dont collect them), khorne, and the other one ;) and different chapters of chaos spacemarines aswell like normal spacemarines, such as Iron Warriors, Emperors Children, Death Guard, and World Eaters, and thats all i can think of for them right now.

*also many different kinds of other races aswell, like imperial guard, eldar and orks, i dont know if tau and dark eldar do. I know for fact crons dont tho.

Ya 3500 dollars is costly, but its the most used Program for making things. I bet they use it to make most things in x-box 360 games, and ps3 games.

As for games you should get for your x-box 360, i wouldnt know because i dont have one, i have a ps3. But two you should get for sure (if you dont already have them) are Gears of War, and Halo 2. Ive played halo 2 and can say its a good game, as for Gears of War, ive heard many good things about, and some bad things, but more good than bad. Its pretty much only the online pla that has bad stuff about it. And halo 2 is just good inpaticular offline and online... except for Screaming elmos, there quite annoying ;)


p.s. i have no idea for what kind of map you could make :'( Sorry

dont push em master, there doing what they can. Id rather have a well done slow coming mod then a fast crappy mod. And im sorry i cant make you monkeys... i dont YET have the program, and i cant animate, texture or code, and i cant get the modelling program (3dsmax7), because it costs around 3 and a half grand. I will get it when im older tho, becasue im becoming a computer animator when i am older. Sure, you could consider us friends, and to take screenshots of your map, while your in the program press "print Scr" (a button on your keyboard somewhere) and open paint, then go up to the top and press edit, then paste. Then just save your pic and do what ever with it. If you want to send it to me, send it through email, my email is cody_bourgeois@hotmail.com. O and heres a tip, to make map making a WHOLE lot easier, press "ctrl+f", and "ctrl+k", this will turn the fog off, and the sky, making it eaiser to see your map while you make it. Just press them again to turn if back on.

well alright im not getting into anthing expensive but if u have it perhaps you could possibly make a few monkeys here and their just a suggestion i have a few mor like for a map make it mountainous im making my best map yet looks good should b finished in 2 days it looks gud the middle is jungle the bit b4 the middle is mountains of rok which seperates into 3 routes they all lead to the same place and hidden around their are "secret" artefacts which i havent made yet... but its good if i new how to take pictures of the map i would show u that only infantry can pass the quikest route. im guessin wes is friends now then ?i try to make maps where it isnt the same as all the other boring ones i thinks yours are good in paticular i've seen em and another thing gretihin with a cannon it looks a bit old and crp if u dont mind me saing because i no there stupid but the year 40,000 and they'd copy other races a bt mayb but woteva. but the other stuff looks gr8.If ur on my maps if u download em which i havent as there not made yet ask me about em as their is stuff hard to spot and u can get easily killed if not careful enough in sum or 1 of them i think it's white light the one im making now.

if u make the maps bye urself how does the team work then do they make maps in a map pack and say which ones u keep and throw away? i want to join if possibly if it dosen't cause u any trouble?
i have 1 Q: it sais stelath cover in an option i notice a lot of things and have good inititve i checked it out and it seems that when i make this type of cover it in the game sais that is does this - point1
-point 3
u might get wot im saying i hope but wtf is dat about? if u hover over stuff it tell u thighs like
- this unit is effective against this unit
u see wot im on about? for cover its that it protects against ranged attacks.etc.
ps i probably come ere to often dont i but i try not to make small posts they are gennereally long if u can be bothered to read 'em. i want to make a new race with monkeys in em! of different kinds. i presume u need the object editor and/or attribute editor to do this? if so :( but i could try it but it'll b a pain in the but.

I am with two other mappers in the Map Makers Mod team, if you want to distribute your maps, then a good place is dowfiles.com, or dawnofwar.filefront.com, there both the same place ;) just click the link on the side of the page that says "submit files" and read the instructions, then do them and they'll put your map up for other people to download.

to change the sound of your men walking in water, click the icon on the left of the impass editor, and it should say "cover" or "footfall" (or something like that), change it to cover, then foot fall again (theres a little gllitch that starts it in the cover spot, but the options it gives are for footfall. Then you should get some options like "water", "dirt", "rock", "grass", and "uknown", just click the one you want, then choose the part of that map you wan your guys to make the sound of on. About the water. In your heightmap editor, there should be an option that it "set value", then a little further down the side, change the option "level" i think it is, to "chest-high water", "waste high water" ect. but dont put deep water, becasue it is impassable.

Hope this helped some, but it might be a little confusing because like i previously said, i suck at explaining things ;)

Highest Rated (20 agree) 10/10

For 6 years now I have been playing Dawn of War. Modding it gave me that extra plus.

8/10 because it is a really good game. I am however ashamed that Relic stopped at Soulstorm.

10/10 because I always experienced something new in it.

10/10 100% warhammer

10/10 for Dawn of War I and Winter Assault campaign

7/10 for Dark Crusade and Soulstorm campaign

10/10 for your epic stories and hard work combined.

Lowest Rated (3 agree) 5/10

So much more could have been done, that was ignored during development.
Betas should of had more input.

Only saving grace is that there is a Modding community with which to complete the incomplete game... :(
