Please read the FAQs (Moddb.com) 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.

Hi everyone,

It's been a long time since any news was released, and there has been a good reason for that: frankly, there has not been any.

However, I can now reveal that work has been resumed, although at a slow pace. Deathwatch78 has generously found time in his busy schedule to give some time to modding, and will therefore be working on new eye candy for the next version. This also means anything which did not make it into 3.5 will be in the next version. On the other hand, the gameplay element is still on hold due to the absence of boothy_p.

Thank you for your support and patience,
deathteam15

Is this mod available for Steam users? I was recently disappointed with a mod I was looking forward to playing and later finding out it wouldn't work.

Is it normal for it to go to Notepad when it finishes downloading? I tried to get it 3 times now and that's where I end up and it says the file is too big, so is there another way to get this?

Try downloading it incrementally from here: Mediafire.com

Download all the different parts, then 3.5. The two files at the bottom are to replace files which are often corrupted, so you may want to replace those as well if you receive any errors.

First make sure you actually have an unzipping program installed, and if it does still not show up then click 'browse' and find it in its directory.

You can get WinRAR here: Win-rar.com

Nope, WinRAR is free. If you've been getting mods for a while you should be familiar with RAR files.

I think I successfully downloaded the mod now and I would like to thank you for all your help with this seeing as I seem to have used up some of your time. I would also like to thank you for directing me to the WinRar, I can now download mods that I've been wanting to play for some time now. I hope for nothing but good things for you from now on. :)

Wait do I need to have downloaded the Tyranid and Black Templar race mods before I downloaded this to get the combiner to work? Or do I need to do something else?

It entirely depends on which races you want to play with; if you wish to play with Tyranids and Black Templars, then you do need to download them.

I had the two mods installed before I got this, was there supposed to be a special way to get the combiner module to work because I can't see them on the race selection.

Meant to put the question up there here...:If that's all can you tell me which module I need to copy? Because there is codex_base.module AND codex_3_5.module. Also I use Steam so does that matter?

Sorry, the instructions seem to be a bit outdated. Instead of copying the file, open "codex_3_52".module located in "C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\dawn of war soulstorm". Then replace the bottom paragraph (the one with all the required mods) with:

RequiredMod.1 = Tyranids
RequiredMod.2 = BTmod
RequiredMod.3 = codex_base
RequiredMod.4 = DXP2
RequiredMod.5 = W40k

It's fine to run it with Steam.
