All hail the Omnissiah!

The public Beta of the Adeptus Mechanicus Mod is available now for download containing a fully playable new race for Dawn of War Soulstorm with a very unique playstyle!


admechss


The priests of Mars, followers of the Cult Mechanicus have arrived on the battlefields. Driven by their quest for knowledge rather than for conquest, the Explorators are here to recover lost technology, but will fight to the death in this cause. Their love of the machine means that the Tech-priests utilise advanced technology in their weapons and automatons and revel in upgrading the weak flesh with mechanical augmentations.

Arriving in a mobile base, which is both production plant and fortress they use powerful automatons to assist them, however these must have their databanks refreshed by coming into contact with a listening point, or being rebooted by a leader else they will grind to a halt and need to be recovered.

Explorators are highly mobile, moving from site to site and do not use more than the minimum of buildings, so their listening posts are unique in that they can be used for research or defence. Further, they can convert incoming requisition into power with their matter converters.

Truly, the Adeptus Mechanicus have arrived!

OK guys, there is a new FreeUI trick, where the squads can have 6 weapons, AND a leader attached! (Courtesy of brother Evil Isador!!)

So I will update the Taskbar of Ad Mech for this, and make the skull swarms able to attach to infantry squads, to provide some more awesome benefits!

Stay tunned, as Ad Mech will be the FIRST mod that will receive a good patch, soon. I have already coded MANY fixes (including major balance changes) and added some new stuff, based on your feedback.
(Note: Our other mods' patches will soon follow, possibly with Thousand Sons, Dark Angels and Harlequins)

All hail the Omnissiah! And Captain-Brother EvilIsador.
And the new incoming patches and updates.
Thinking about it, this newest FreeUI could be put to good use practically everywhere.
I mean even BT,BA,SW,Salams,WH, R:WE,etc. could use it.

Indeed!
Very accurate remark brother Oaks.

So far, this new UI update will affect Dark Angels, Ad Mech and R:WE. But since FreeUI is VERY customizable, any race can get anyone of the UI benefits. :)

Just allows us a small modding pause, and we will be returning soon with MAJOR updates !!!

You need to unzip both the Admech mod and the Objective Points mod into your soulstorm directory. You should end up with two folders and two module files in your soulstorm directory - then launch from the game manager.

Ammmm how am i suppossed to play this? I mean i have only 100 of power, and all the technology is usefull after i level the HQ. However, there is no Power Production and the next tier is 250 Power and 250 Requisition. I cant develop anything. Any help? I tried using a Quick-Start but the AI destroys u instantly, as the Squad Cap increases only by caprturing LP. I like the Faction, but is kind of impossible to use in a Quickstart.
By the way to anyone interested, i was able to add it to Ultimate Apocalypse, but i will give this info only if i'm allowed (I few words, its is quiet easy toadd factions)

There is a power production.
Click on STC Searcher LP, and on the, only seemingly shadowed out and inactive, "Power Surge"(off) button to set it on.(roughly like in Harleqins or Chaos Deamons mod)

Thanks so much! I was able to play with them and i must say they are an exellent addition. The Leman Russ is a really weak unit, but most of their infantry is really well balanced.

Russ weak? Not heard that before, making you got an unlucky loadout.

I don't recall that we are AGAINST this being in UA, more that we are not going to do it and it's annoying that people always ask that rather than playing the mod as we intend. I don't speak for the team, but Cylarne has good relations with us so I'm sure we can work something out- however you may want to suggest/send him your version to consider before publicly uploading.

Yeah maybe u r right, maybe i used it badly.
And about UA, i get your point. "[...]it's annoying that people always ask that rather than playing the mod as we intend". But the reason why we ask for this is that Vainilla DoW has little things to offer against this mod. This mod (AME) is literally huge, and it offers a lot of things as a faction itself. The same goes for UA. Every faction is now enormous and adding this exellent mod, this faction, alongside the Tyranids, IDH, Chaos Daemons and all the new content would be great. I dont consider the Tyranids Mod a tool of UA, it is an exellent addon for Soulstorm itself, BUT, it works way better with UA. The same for the IDH or the Chaos Daemons. Every modding team is brillant, they work practically for free for the community, and UA (at least from my point of view) is a way of unifying all mods into one. There should be a way of mixing all the mods for one final product. Thats why i love the community of DoW so much. Lots of effort and a lot of joy. Thanks for your replies and hard work
