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,

WoW! What a mess! Got rid of my BT mods collection & stuck with boothy_p suggestion. Cleaned my registry & reinstalled the best BT version. In the end i got everything fixed up & working perfectly!!! Now some of my favorite mods have been rewritten with compatible working race combos with exception of Steel Legion! Please - no Titans - your mod is so unique & better suited for conventional battles. The UA Mod will have the best Titans suitable for its style of gameplay when thats released. Your mod certainly has style & it works!

Thanks man, and I certainly agree with you on the last comment. It's not Apocalypse, we already have that. All the "races", extra units and options, but in DOW style, with a more challenging AI opponent hopefully. Focus on enjoyable gameplay, and trying to make different options and styles depending on who your playing as.

Hmm, I fired up a game as the Emperor's Children legion and I noticed Noise Marines can't have the standard noise guns, only bolters and the big blast master :\ There's other stuff too so is there some place you're collecting info about bugs and such?

Anyway, kudos, this is the first time I got my butt handed to me by the AI.

Just added a thread to the forums section of the page for that :)

Thanks dude, although it can't be a bug if it was never designed to do something ;) (ah, semantics). I'll check again what the models support (the noise marines are just the FoK ones, tx guys)
Glad you like the AI, has been a big focus for the last few months
