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!

In an attempt to make the icons pop out more from the previous style, I've applied a minor adjustment to each unit which now features a colored backgrounds and a secondary light source.


Plans for the project are being changed completely. Instead of releasing 4 of every unit with all weapons and leaders associated with each squad, I've decided to cover all basic infantry first, not bothering to fill out leaders/weapons and unit icons using alternate weapons.

Reasons for this is because I'm now adding an extra feature of using custom taskbars for every faction so the future icons match the new hud elements.

Of course, this is only a UA feature at the moment. Taskbars will be applied as a separate download. Since 1920 x 1080 resolution distorts the previous taskbar texture to where the icons do not fit properly, I made sure that each slot matches the dimensions of these icons. The end result and release of this project will be centered around themeing/improving the entire look of your hud.

i make my maps on my own yes, and i dont find it detailed, i find it actually fun and challenging. I am very artistic and have great computer skills, so i learn quickly at these things, maybe some day i could upload some of my drawings and show yas. I actually plan on being a computer animator when im older, so this little hoppy like thing is also going to my advantage.

they need the maps to play, and no im not from america... im from Canada :D and i do play my own aps, mainly against computers, sometimes with friends with my LAN, after i get months map pack done ill probably sit back and play some DC online. The main reason i havent really played it much online is ive been busy with school, making maps, and trying to get used to the crons that i havent really had time to play online. But this month were a little ahead of schedule so ill probably get some time to play some of my maps online... if anyone has them downloaded ;) hopefully they will :D if they dont then... :(

btw, if you were planning on getting a ps3, then do it, they is awesome *my precious* lol

ya, i wouldnt bother with trying to put units and stuff in the game, you need a whole nother program called 3csmax 7 to make models, but then you have to code them. And as for the thing your talking about capturing a point, and then you get units. You have to know how to do scar coding, which i dont know how so i cant help you with that right now. Ill probably try and learn it in the future sometime.

My username online is _Ultra_, but im not really online ever, im either busy playing my ps3, or making maps for DOW.

what you can do, is save other peoples maps, and then fool around with them and try and fiure out how they did stuff, and learn from it. Hope i helped some

Highest Rated (21 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.

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... :(
