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

New Races:

 Chaos Daemons
Chaos Renegades (The Lost and the Damned)
Grey Knights
Adeptus Mechanicus
Blood Angels
Space Wolves
Dark Angels

Expansions to the original 9 races:

Faction choices for:

Chaos Legions - 9 Original Traitor Legions and Renegades
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,

Love the look of this mod but I cannot for the life of me figure out how to install it. Does it work with the Steam version of SS? I download the 3 parts + the hotfix to my dawn folder but do not see it in the game manager. Am I missing something? Thanks.

er, sorry mate, I have no experience with the steam install of Soulstorm (it's bad enough for DoW2), I've heard it's a bit silly, but I'm sure some-one here would be able to help you. Come on dudes!!!!

Steam may not support mods, but it does work with them. I use steam often and have lots of mods on it. (I used to use it with dow and had UA installed, but I now use the CD version). Just extract the files to "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\dawn of war soulstorm" (Program Files (x86) may be just Program Files depending on whether you're running a 32 or 84 bit OS). Also make sure you extract the 3 parts at the same time, then the hotfix after. However, I can't be 100% sure as to whether this particular mod works with steam (occassionaly they don't, but that's usually only if they install to differrent locations, as the file setup is slightly different with Steam games), but it should do. Hope this helps.
