7 new races, new units and features for the original 9 races. With the mission to bring all races to Dawn of War, in the style of their Codex, drawing inspiration from the Table Top Game. The complete collection of the Codex Mod to date.
I totally forgot to rate the Codex mod (or I did, but then people yelled at me). Here it is again!
7/10 Immersion, gameplay, balance
N/A Story line or plot
6/10 prolonged gameplay
10/10 for amount of races
8/10 layout and design
2/0 (free points) mod team and updates
Worth the download? 8/10
For a fan of codex related material or people looking to look at stuff, this is a very great mod. For the amount of races integrated into this mod, this is outstanding. Balanced? Absolutely!
This mod also includes multiple winconditions no other mod has. The allies wincondition, which you can call in reinforcements from other factions, random per faction, and of course tons others! Like allow titans, massive battles, etc. This mod is totally worth the download!
I have to however point out that I got very many crash to desktops. I don't know if it is now cured and I am totally wrong now, but out of the ten games I have played (which is very great!), I get half the time crash to desktops, and every mod for Dawn of War has these crashes, but more frequently in this mod.
Other than that, the Codex mod team did a fine job at remaking all races together. The Grey Knights race is phenomenal, not judging its content, but gameplay! And is probably one of the best races in any mod besides Gambit's new Chaos Daemons, THE IDH mod, and the Tyranids.
Immersion is very good, and sometimes gameplay, but the lack of help text does also take away some influence. The gameplay is mostly vanilla based, not entirely changed or new. Mod still includes many limits of DOW SS "balance rule". Codex Daemons needs to be fixed, like my old screwed up Daemons mod when I converted it to vanilla. I feel the same about these Daemons, not entirely fun in the long run.
Otherwise, this mod is full of content and worth the download. I don't understand how the mod is so popular, but it is for a reason!
Love the mod brings my Love for DoW:SS back to life.. having few minor issues with few units in game. seems I cant build them. but doesn't effect playing the mod other than that mod is to notch and a must have for SS
and hoping their will be more races added to the codex in the future.
