Many hours and headaches but well worth it, there is some stuff that has never been done in dow before I guess I might be a trend setter anyways hope you like it should be available as soon as boothy does his thing.

Cant give you much info but is so cool and every race will get this kind of attention down the road AM has got all textures and voices done by dkpisme now on to me for FX and hex but I got some stuff to do for UA MOD first so time for a change a scenery for a few then back to codex.

THANK YOU for following this mod.CHEERS!

Is there any sort of hard coded limit to the number of races you can have in the game?
