Volunteers please PM me, or comment below. Only looking for a small team to keep focus on the work that's being done.

It might not appear like it, but there has been a lot done behind the scenes in the few weeks since 3.6 came out..............

Hi creators of this mod, i have an idea for a nwe mod, pleas read me :) !!

AFTER you finish this mod, could you make a mod for the vanilla campaign mod ? I mean by that, in dark crusade in the campaign we are in one territory and we build our base right ? Then whene we left the territory and thene come again, all the buildings still there :) !!! But not in soulstorm :'( !

I faught to myself that it should be a nice idae for a mod to let in Soulstorm the same systeme than in dark crusade :D !!

Can you make it one day ? Pleas don't say no :S at least try to convince other moders :) !

I hope you will one day, take your time for it :) !

I'm afraid Codex will likely remain the only mod produced, and whilst nobody can tell the future, the chances of another mod are fairly slim, sorry.

Having an idea is the first step to modding for yourself, though!

Dunno, should work fine, and not heard of this before....
Try extracting to a different location (like my docs of something), then copy to Soulstorm directory.
