Please read the FAQs ( before posting. Thank you. :)

Space Marines - Remaining 6 First Founding Legions, and 3 Second Founding Legions
Eldar - 6 most famous Craftworlds
Orks - The 6 major Clans
New units and characters for all the original races.

Installation Instructions:

1. Delete the codex folder and the code.module file in your Soulstorm directory.
2. Download both parts 1 and 2 of the Codex Base Code.
3. Extract both parts to your SS directory.
4. Download and extract Codex 3.5 to your Soulstorm directory.

5. Select “Dawn of War: Codex (3.5)” from the Game Manager.

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,
but you will NEED these 2 great mods installed separately.

NOTE: The new races are not the same as other independently released versions, just to avoid confusion. These are the Codex versions, developed separately.

Hey everyone,

Just thought everyone deserved to know what's going on with the mod, since we've been rather quiet lately.

Unfortunately, about a month or two back, boothy had an accident, hence his inactiveness. Fortunately, he's made good recovery, and will return to work when ready. This should be relatively soon, but nothing is guaranteed.

Furthermore, deathwatch, our texturer, is having real life issues (the bane of modders). Therefore, we're unsure as to when he'll be back, but we doubt it will be any time soon.

Thanks very much of the continued suggestions (we'll get to work on them ASAP) and patience,

Question.. Are you guys gonna get around to updating the Space Wolves models, and the regular Space Marine Scouts? And adding doctrines to IG, making any adjustments to aircraft, yadda yadda yadda blah blah blah I've talked about most of this before but I'm curious.

Good luck to you all.

Also, i notice that some long range weapons are not exactly long ranged (like the heavy bolters and lascannons). I feel many weapons are almost bordering on short range, at least for Space Marines. Great mod btw, but it needs some refinement.

Thanks for the feedback, i'll make note of the suggestions.

Ironicaly, while playing as GKs the other day, I was thinking the opposite; my dreadnought was beaten pretty easily by bloodletters, and my GKs didn't stand a chance against daemon flamers and daemonettes. Also I noticed someone else was complaining about this...I guess it just depends on how you play and what army you are. As for the spamming, it sounds like you're just playing on a too hard a difficulty (the difficulties are harder on Codex than vanilla, though).

Do the AI get a buff on harder difficulties? Like tougher and cheaper units, faster cooldowns etc etc? I know the harder ai's had some kind of buff in the vanilla version, but have you included a more powerful buff? I also tried playing as Grey Knights vs Grey Knights, but the game crashed halfways into the game, but i know i kicked the ai's butt harder as Gk than any other race. Also, i just have to say i love what you have done with space marines in giving them different chapter traits, as well as other SM factions to play.

I'm afraid not being the coder, I can't answer the question with 100% certaintity, but I believe we have. Hmmm..well...we'll have a discussion, and see what the team thinks collectively. You're probably right, though (I haven't played them that much).

Thanks, it's appreciated. :)

The Grey Knights are ridicolously overpowered. Their heroes are effin one-man armys. Their units are a little bit too much as well. I dont know if its the difficulty or whatever, but i just aborted a game as Space Marines vs Grey Knights. Even if i had the upper hand, i knew i would not be able to push further into the ai's base, because it kept spamming me with dreadnaughts, commanders and land raiders, which took forever to take down. Did i mention orbital bombardment spam? I hope you are making a fix to the Grey Knights soon...
