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,

what do you mean by?

Anubis_theDark 21mins 15secs ago replied:

True, but you need more GK buildings and with some texturing some of those could be good.

I had 5 days to work new textures and fx into buildings what would you like to see done with them, Only gave them about 80 percent love to get them into the 3.2 release. could always go back and add, Just interested in opinion not to pick a fight. so please don't take it that way Anubis_theDark.

Exactly what boothy said. It was not intended as an offense or anything like that. Simply that they could be a good base to work one. But since that is not going to happen, i can't wait to see what you guys have in mind for them.

As for suggestions - well i have to admit the GK teleporter/defense building was a cool and unique thing in IDH. Imo GK faction should be more defense hvy than space marines, since they are pretty much the last line of defense against demonic invasions when both IG and SM forces have failed. At least that's how i see it.

Mh, I see them as small teams striking at the heart of the great enemy when all else is failing! But difference of opinion is good, otherwise life would be dull. But I'm trying to follow the codex close as possible within DOW style

Anubis_theDark Jul 2 2012, 8:57pm replied:

True, but in the codex GK are represented as the most faithful warriors of the empire. They are lower in numbers than any of the other human factions, and they are chosen from the best warriors of other human factions ( again from the codex ). Basicly it would make no sense to teleport a couple of guys in the middle of a huge *** invasion that a whole space marine chapter couldn't stop. At least imo ...

Mh, there are a number of examples of that in the fluff, but then it makes no sense at all for them to slaughter Sisters of Battle, and cover themselves in their blood to gain additional purity, but hey, Mat Ward strikes again with his SoB snuff fetish.....

It would have been cool to use those buildings but we made due with what we could cheers!

I think he means, if we used the IDH building and re-texted them, rather than the SM ones. Not that there's anything wrong with the current ones. Just an IDH base to work on. Not going to happen though.
