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!

About Search and Rescue Mod with 0 comments by EvilIsador on Jan 31st, 2015

A long time has passed. I was very busy and progress was very slow, but now the new version is ready for you.

It now supports the Codex and the Titanium Wars mod. The SaR start script detects your installations as usual. So just start it and select.

Also new are the modes of Search and Rescue, that let you customize your battles. There is the "Endless Search" mode, that allows you to rescue prisoners until there are no cages left. In this mode you cannot go back to your drop point and get caught up, so you have to annihilate all your enemies.
There is the "Rescue Enemies" mode, too. It makes you able to free your enemies prisoners when you are finished rescueing your own.
Two of my favourites are the "Reinforcements" modes. You can choose to get reinforcements after 10 or after 20 minutes. The reinforcements allow you to build up a base like in normal matches.
Then there are new winconditions to turn auto-requisitioning for builders on/off and to allow you to build mines.

And finally it includes the "Campaign Buildings". As mentioned before these winconditions make the game spawn more buildings randomly. You can take control of these buildings by capturing the near strategic point, objective or relic in most cases. Some of the buildings need you to fortify the related strategic point or relic.
I changed the way the Resurrection Beacon works. It does not spawn Necron Warriors anymore, but you can produce one squad per Beacon. I also added the Beacon of the Void Dragon, that can make enemies loose control. Moreover you can select the Tower of Khorne, that can slay infantry units around it. And there is the Blood Pit available, which I like most. It allows you to sacrifice your own troops and to get blood from them. Then you can spend the blood to summon Khorne Berserkers.

Collect blood with a Blood Pit......by sacrificing troops

nope, this isnt my job, im only 14 yeers old and am doing this for fun and for the community, and dont save them to the dark crusade root folder. You must save them to the normal dawn of war root folder, then copy them to your dc folder. Here ill put exactly what to do:

*first (once your done your map) save it to your ...\dawn of war\wxp\data\scenarios\mp\

*second -> if you want to play it in DC, then copy it ONCE IT IS FINISHED into ...\dawn of war - dark crusade\dxp2\data\scenarios\mp, not if its half done, if its only half done or not complete then keep it in your ...\dawn of war\wxp\data\scenarios\mp, you can open any maps from there. If you have a map in your ...\dawn of war\dxp2\data\scenarios\mp, and you want to open it back up and work on it again, then cut and paste it back into your ...\dawn of war\wxp\data\scenarios\mp\ folder, then you can reopen it from there and work on it in any manner you want to, then when its finished or modified, just copy it back to your ...\dawn of war - dark crusade\dxp2\data\scenario\mp\

p.s. dont worry your not pestering me, im happy being able to help anyone ;) and about the next game coming out in 2007.... you know as much as i do about it :D (nothing at all really :) )

Ultramarine_40000 Nov 30 2006, 1:59pm says:

hmm... ok

ill do my best here ;)

first you have to save it in c:\program files\thq\dawn of war\wxp\data\scenarios\mp, but when your done that map and want to play it in DC, copy it into your c:\program files\thq\dawn of war - dark crusade\dxp2\data\scenarios\mp and it shoudl work, and as for starting positions, there located in the objects menu, under gameplay, and to make them useable for one person, theres a little bar above where you choose your object, it should say "world", switch it to player one/two/three ect. and then place your starting posistion, then when you play a game on that map that certain player will start there *hoo* (ouf of breath ;) ) make sure you switch it everytime you place a new starting position, and after your done placing the starting points, change it back to "world"

hope that helps :)

Highest Rated (19 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... :(
