Posted by tylerthegreat on Jul 28th, 2009

dawn of war the most awesome rts to be ever made (in my opinion if you play it properly and accept the fact that you are going to have some major competition).
the one thing that I've been wondering about when it comes to the pc versions of the games is what next?what are the expansions going to be are they going to continue dawn of war 1 forward from soulstorm,these are questions that everyone want to know so if you know anythingplease share it with the community.this blog is also for suggesting cool mod ideas.

i the creator of this blog would like to start off.
i think that it would be good to professionally add the tyranids into dawn of war and have an expansion added in after soulstorm,i find it stupid to discontinue the expansion of dawn of war 1 when it is still a great game and soulstorm was made in 2008 anyway so why not.

Your totaly right! DOW is awesome and the Tyranids deserve a Race in the game, but it unfortunately lost profits for THQ and GW with every expansion, so they had to start anew. The new Dawn of War shines with Great Graphics and brilliant gameplay, but its system requirements are quite high -.-
There are still some awesome mods out there for DOW 1 (My personal favourites are FOK and Tabletop mods) which fortunately keep the game alive. I'm thankful for that ^^

anyway, to stick with the theme:
A mod that would bring the game to apocalypse scale would be awesome! With titans and co through the battles, just Wicked Sick! Another idea would be an add-one or mod which inserted all races and available units into the game with professional standards (I mean, the early versions of the tyranid mod had only 3 models -.-).

yeah it is unfortunate that but they could have put a bit more effort into adding more units into the game each expansion in the first place (i mean one unit each expansion wtf?) but seriously though they do need to do something more than they are already doing because dow2 was unsuccessful (in my opinion the camapaign was great) they need to liven it up a bit though.

i know there's alot of realism mods but imagine one thats is a unit was hit or something it would move slower even walk or slouch and slowly have life drained unless it was near a paramedic or back at HQ or something along those lines that would bring extreme realism.
along with of corse majorly rejucing hit points.
ork=no armour but somehow space marine bullets which are extremely powerful dont hurt orks until the ork has been shot so many times that that game seems like crap.
=space marines have got lots or armour but shooting them about 1000 times be4 they die sorta ruins it.
i recon give each unit around 10 hp max.

BIA mod... brings about 5 new complete races... including the renegades Undivided...

on another situation... nothing would beat it if i could have more destructible buildings... but that something else... i likez the imperial guard's heavy weapons... sexy models and the guy never gets to let down the ammo box...
