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!


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!

Requires OE and possibly 3D work :(
We have no active modeller in our team at the moment.
And regrettably, this doesn't seem to change in the future...

I have noted that the primary color for some units still maintain a red trim even if you change it.
It's intended to be this way or it's a bug?
I was adding a new forgeworld that use black as primary color and I got Dark red as result, instead of the color that I had setted.

Some colours are subtly or not affected by TC by choice.
But most, are.

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.

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.
