There is a combiner module file for using in conjunction with the Tyranids (vs 0.51b) and the Black Templars (beta 5) mods included in the extracted folder,

2 comments by boothy_p on Mar 16th, 2015

OK, so 3.6(beta) is out........
It was a bit of a rush job, with most of the changes done over the last week, but they seemed to all work OK, so just drop me a message if anythings wrong (except descriptions :) )

A few things to note though:

"Allow Allies" needs to be activated to get the allies buildings in the advanced build menu.

"Allow Titans" is gone as a win condition.

"Escalation" allows titans, and bumps the pop cap up 50%.

"Apocalypse" allows titans, and bumps the pop cap up 100%.

(Don't use the 2 together - you'll get a SCAR error)

I don't know what's next, there's a massive list (well, there isn't actually, but a lot of ideas).No new full races though for now, the current lot still need work, and it takes to long to build a race for my free time at present.

New Allies though - defo!

Anyway, I hope the downloads work OK, get annoying when they get screwed up..........

Oh, and see the tutorial here:
For those unsure on the best method of installing the base set.

And see here: for who gets what allies.

(I'm off to play DoW II, and Space Marine :) )

Would be nice if you added descriptions to units/research appropriate to the mod, seems right now most units got nothing at all in that department.

I second this. This is something I suggested a long time ago, but development had ceased then. Simply filling in missing Tooltips would help a lot. Especially for Weapon Upgrades and such for several units (i.e. Devastator Marines, Lascannons, Plasma Cannons, etc. Differences, best effectiveness, etc.) Just simply missing in all of the missing tooltips would go a long way. I know it's low priority, but it's a good quality of life improvement.

I totally agree too!
Oh, wait, I'm the one that finds that boring as anything - Right........
Oh, AI code or descriptions - let me thinks :)
I'm slowly adding a few at a time each release, and making sure the new stuff has desc.
As long as I don't die/give up we'll get there!

Just installed following the instructions and when I attempt to start I get the message "failed to activate the requested game" I thought this could be a clash with other mods so I deleted them all except the 4 codex parts and retried but still get the same message, any suggestions? Thanks.

For the Dark Angels, is it possible to make their standard tactical marines bear the same model as the Company Veterans with the robes? Personally I love that look.

Or if it's not possible, is there a way that I could modify the models for myself and replace the tactical marine models with those of the company veterans?

Yes, it's possible.
I'm not going to do it as part of the mod (it's not Codex), but if you are familiar with Corsix's Mod Studio, it's a really quick change to make.....

Don't install games into default "program files\", use manual "c:\games\" instead.

I run Win 7 so I'm afraid I'm unsure, but if you follow the instructions I don't see any reason why it should not work :) Also I don't believe anyone has ever complained about it not working on Win 8, so the chances are that if it didn't work someone would have said by now...but of course that's based on assumptions.

Well, seeing as it's developed on W8.1, yeah, there's no problems with it ;)
