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

Me, aka jONES1979 (AE- ,OE-, AI-coding, voices post-processing)
Skinnie (AE-coding, FX-es)
Melooo (3D models, AE-, OE-coding)

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.

This mod required DoW SS Advanced AI ver 3.2 mod to play!
This mod is for DoW:Soulstorm only. Tested on both CD/DVD and Steam versions.

Yes, Heroes WINCONDITION will be supported, but I don't sure about how "soon".
Mr. Fuggles did all the job, but time of next release is unpredictable.

Do you plan on creating new models? The last release is in 2012 so I guess you could add in new units. Plus, you may want to consider creating witch hunters mod for soulstorm.

Sorry, I'm very bad in characters animations, so I better concentrate on something else, where I have skills.
My current plan is to hack GFX files and insert Black Templars into meta-map. I already did something similar in 2010 for another race, but completely forgot how to do it again.

Objective Points mod was updated today. Please, re-download

Manual install required.
And before the unpacking, it is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED to DELETE the previous SS\objective_points_SS folder and objective_points_SS.module file

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.

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
