This mod brings the Black Templars Fighting Company to DoW:Soulstorm game.
Black Templars are zealous space marines that prefer close combat over ranged warfare.
Templars are added as the separate game faction, so this mod does not change the original gameplay of Soulstorm.

Mod team:

Me, aka jONES1979 (AE- ,OE-, AI-coding, voices post-processing)
Skinnie (AE-coding, FX-es)
Melooo (3D models, AE-, OE-coding)
Claymore MD (music, video)
Shodar (testing)


The mod based on models made by Melooo, and also reused his gameplay ideas about how to implement Black Templar's 'close to codex' style.
Also this mod utilize some other FOK/POK assets, like updated sound effects and FX-es. THANK YOU, FOK team, you are Best among DoW1 modders.
This mod would not exist without helps of Skinnie.
Glorious Thudmeiser, who organized voice scripting and recording process for the entire Warhammer 40k modding community. Follow his work on Revora!
Claymore MD made the cool trailer for this mod, and also he granted us permission to use some of his music tracks.
Great thanks to forum members who provide me a vital data about mod balance, etc: EyePatch, BloodyVomit, I_Chample, Amibari_Sen (and his friend).

Here is one of my(Skinne) old maps that was kinda popular. I(Skinne) decided to put it on Moddb, since most of the old links are no longer available...

Latest map set in the Svarog Sector. Should depict an archaeological site with 4 height levels and several SCAR additions to make the map more exciting...

Could it possibly be that I forgot to download your majestic latest
OP mod, that models of Admech and Rubric LP's when placing are invisible? xD
Well, thank you Captain-brother, see you later when Blood Angels will be released.

A bunch of real multiplayer matchups (Human vs Human) in BT mod beta-5.5.022 (Fun game of complete dual extermination) (Siege and counterattack) (A really long Tier 4 confrontation) (Templars teching vs Ork rush = economic fail) (Under Eldar besiegement) (Templar vs Templar)

Actual BT mod consits from 4 files, take them here:

Proper order:
- Install AI mod
- Install main BT mod (biggest one)
- Unpack beta-5.5.022 patch into game folder, confirm overwrite.
- Unpack OP_SS mod, confirm overwrite.

although I don't use your mod, out of all the maps I have found for the original dawn of war ss expansion yours are superior to most of what I find good work on those

Reply Good karma Bad karma+2 votes

A mere suggestion jONES. Could you update the installation of the mod packing the current patch AND dismissing some old content?

I think (but it is just a guess) that the current beta is old enough (2012?) in a way that may contain some content not actualized and that may cause conflict with your new releases of Objective points.

The race mods should be free of Obj points content and address to it instead of including it. I think many of them do it but the exe of this beta still contains it.

If I'm wrong I apologize.

I noticed that there's some extra modifications on lua files of other races, either from DoW or other mods as Salamanders. I think they're related to resize. The logfile of the mod is very complete and readable but doesn't mention this modifications and should be pointed out as well.
