1) The Tyranid Mod team did not give you permission to copy, modify and redistribute our work. Doing so is illegal in multiple countries including the UK.

2) For someone who claims not to take any credit for the mods you're stealing, it's interesting that your licensing agreement tells people not to use "your" files or "codeing", since that's exactly what you've done.

3) 0.5b1 is out of date (the Tyranid Mod is now up to 0.5b2) - so for anyone actually thinking of downloading this mod, don't.

"Great Devourer Mode" - it's a version without population or unit caps. We added it after a lot of requests for an "infinite" version of the mod.

Less. Unfortunately Soulstorm provided us with an easier route to do what we wanted and also has a very different balance style - so attempting to maintain a DC version alongside a SS version started becoming extremely difficult.

The HT weapons were a bit of a problem for us, but I believe we kept the Bonesword option.

If don't have/aren't using the Daemonhunt mod, might as well remove that line.

Your opponent has the Tyranid Mod?

We don't feel that stealing models from DoW2 and repackaging them for distribution would be the best way to stay in business.

We also feel that using our own models keeps things interesting for the players.

And, yes, we've updated the HT texture. :P

As for the model variety issue, we have had people suggest this previously (I think it was for gaunts or genestealers, so the units are less samey). Our conclusion was that it would be nice to do, but increase our production time by a lot. And we're already pretty aware at how slow we are at releasing new versions of the mod.

1) Do you mind sending me a screenshot of the upgrades you mean? All of them should have descriptions in the standard mod, but if GDM is acting up we'll need to investigate further.
2) You answered this one already. :P
3) Quite possible, I'll look into it further. We're basically writing an entirely new resource into a game that doesn't like it when people do that - so we've had a few problems with it already.
4) I'll add that to our bug list.
5) We have flyer units in prep that are currently not available in game. We intend on making them available in 0.6 along with a whole bunch of significant gameplay options.

Not sure I get what you're asking - are you asking us to make them larger, or are you asking to use them in Rise of the 7th Reich?

Detecting invisible units requires Synapse - so anything with the glowing Tyranid logo under it should be able to find invisible Eldar buildings. Lictors may also be able to do this too although I can't remember if they count as detectors.

As for the buildings disappearing, it's a known issue which we're still investigating.

It's a larger roving spore mine, from which ordinary spore mines will drop when it is destroyed/self-destructs. We've sort of side-stepped the need for them by allowing spore chimneys to deep strike ordinary spore mines onto your enemies (something you don't really get in normal tabletop games), so although they are pretty, we decided it would be redundant and possibly confusing to give you biovores, spore chimneys and mieotic spore sacks.

Hey, I missed this comment - sorry for not answering sooner.

We almost never have a problem with people doing this. And yeah, as you guessed, that's how most "combiner mods" work. :)

The only thing I can recommend is trying a different strategy. Tyranids do not play the same way other armies play, you have to be able to play in their mindset to win.

This is another issue I'd recommend heading to the forum and checking out the Tech Support board for. I know we have had other people report the power issue.

Sync error?

Happens from time to time, may have something to do with whether you guys have patched your copy of Soulstorm to 1.2 or not or it could be a lot of other things as well.

I'd recommend going to our forum (http://tyranids.gameapollo.com) and starting a thread in the Tech Support board.

We aren't (we still have animations, sounds and a lot of backend stuff to work out), but one of our forum members has been working on higher definition skins as an optional replacement pack. So far he's redone the Zoanthrope and Carnifex, but I think he plans to do more.
