My second map set in Svarog Sector. Its 4vs4 map, and although big, it can be quite fast. I suggest you use troop transports asap, but you can play without...

Hey guys...I was wondering...if there is a way to add the Tyranid mod to the black templar module so anyone can play Black Templars Vs Tyranids while keeping the Soulsstorm vanilla stile of The Black Templar mode as it is ?? Just wondering.

The only issue of combining those mods are different UI/screen files which affects on Player possibility do some specific thing while playing. (BTmod UI disable Tyranids feature, and Tyranids UI disable BT race feature).

If you use BT mod as main (higher priority) - you can play BT race without UI problems with AI controlled Tyranids.

And vice versa, If you use Tyranids mod as main (higher priority) - you can play Tyranids race without UI problems with AI controlled Tempalars.

There is a workaround, on relicnews forum there were the updated UI files, where BT-UI-features added to Tyranid's UI files. You can search for it.

I need help with a glitch I can seem to fix. All of the black templar banners are replaced with the blood ravens. Is there a fix for this?

And I mean the banners at requisition points, relics, etc, not the company standard bearer, which looks amazing

There is no such problem.

Make sure, you use the latest OP_SS mod and it was not overwritten by obsolete version, that some modders so love to include in their "soon-become-outdated" packages.

Few questions, comrade-brother Jones: xd
Standard-bearer,Chaplain,Champion,Castellan cannot be attached to a Fire support squad. Why?

What are the statistic differences between Neophytes and their Crusader/Fire support squads Iniates "teachers"?
Since Neophytes are only 5/10 req. points cheaper.

Why the Vows has different prices?
I think that Vows could emphasis more on their unique playstyle,
instead of just few statistic changes,only to be able to get hands on Champion.
Like the four and three paths of different playstyles in Chaos deamons and Dark angels mods.
One of the Vows allows the Champion to suppress("silence") all enemy ability-casters(psykers)?
Dont remember if the Vow were "Abhor the witch" or Accept any challenge" or "Suffer not the unclean"

- Fire support squad have 6 weapon upgrade options, so there is no room for "attach/detach" button and "attached leader" icon.
- Neophytes have less health and bit worse accuracy.

- Vows are made with strict accordance to BT Codex of 4rd Edition. (Detailed description
Vows, in its essence, in any case are not comparable with the choice belonging to the Gods of Chaos or company doctrines of Dark Angels

Are the three maps above supposed to be played on the BTmod? I'm having trouble just finding the maps when I try to play, I even tried to find them on my other mods and no such luck.

No, those are regular maps and can be played with any mods. Just put them properly.
(Probably into Soulstorm\DXP2\Data\scenarios\mp\ , but check incuded readme files before)

And of course, I suggest you to try them with BT mod also ))))

There are music titles, exclusively written by Claymore M.D., and where are "other" musics... I do not want to publish the name of the artist. You can find titles within BTmod\Data\sound\music\ and next use google for searching.

What about BT mod age, the 1st beta was released exactly 01-march-2010, so it is just 4 years of running. There are Black Templars mods before me, and after me, but I have no relations to them. But anyway, thank you for support!
