Chaos Daemons Mod

Official Stand Alone Race For Dawn of War: Soulstorm


The Daemons mod created by the official
Daemons mod team has been released! Ever since 12/31/12, the Chaos Daemons mod was reworked to an extreme, here by including a total revamp to the Daemons mod version 0.96 back almost a year ago. What does version 1.4 bring? Only epicness. Only new stuff all over the place, only a total revamp! Daemons mod fans out there, if you played version 0.96 and you liked it, version 1.4 is A NEED TO GET!

Here is a good starting description of the Demons race.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

New Daemons Team Members

Corncobman, Cosmocrat, Cylarne, Fuggles, Gambit, Hollow, Jaguar-Lord, Jones1979, Sataman, Shodar87, Thudmeizer.

Assets/Tools

Sharing work, is a beautiful thing. And because of the generosity of
some people, we can all enjoy possibilities that we otherwise couldn't.
Thus, our gratitude goes to:
Firestorm Over Kaurava mod team: You all know the guys... It's from the wide "pool" of their assets, we all occasionally draw.
Thousand Sons mod: For the Daemons "Acrylic Circle" used from the TS Daemon Pit.
Warsmith / _Echo_: For
MANY of his models (especially for the Daemon Lord, the 4 heralds, the
Shadow Fiends and the Doom Pit) used by the Dark Prophecy mod. Note: His
Warp Portal model was a life-saver - thanks man!
Boothy_p: For many of his assets, suggestions and support. I (me or Gambit) was greatly inspired by his own design of Warp Daemons.
Skinny: Nice bootiful fx and abilities for Chaos Daemons.
Catwell: Especially for his Bloodletters, among other things.
Horus Heretic: For his Flesh Hounds.
Mudflap and Palii: For Nurglings (textures by Fuggles).
Andrei: For his Fiends AND the Warp Spawn!!
And of course Corsix!: For his excellent tool most of us use!

The Daemons team would also like to thank:
Corncobman: For his invaluable and tireless coding help on the project.
Fuggles: For his patience, and his crucial AI assistance.
Jones1979: for the Objective Points mod which was extremely well done for the Daemons faction and other factions in the DOW Community.
Thudmeizer: For his support, and Voices. (and for his MEGALITHIC contribution to the DOW modding community !!)
Croaxleigh: For his support and suggestions,
especially at the begging of the new version of Daemons mod. And of
course, for his unfailing kindness!
Sataman: For his gentle spirit and his resolve to provide FXes, even when he was... ill !!
ALL BROTHERS that we have not mentioned here (although we are using their work), but we should have....

Permissions

There are chances we used material that we may not have the proper
rights to do so. With the plethora of assets and modders, it is
sometimes difficult to trace-back the origin of assets and the
permissions required.... We respect the work of others which is their
own intellectual property, and we have NO ill-intend. So, if you spot anything that seems misplaced, just notify us and we will replace it immediately.

Regards,
The Daemons Mod Team

Can someone please tell me what exactly the install instructions for patch 1.5 means when it says to "Apply the patch on a clean Daemons 1.4 install"? I've been waiting since August, haven't gotten one response and now that there's ANOTHER patch with the exact same instructions I'm starting to get depressed.

What's the matter ? you download and install the 1.4, then you download the 1.6 and you install it. and voila you're done.

I mean what does it mean to "Apply it" because I don't know what it is telling me to do exactly. Or are you saying another installer is supposed to show up because it hasn't for me. Also I think you forgot 1.5.

Ah... a bit of a mess :)
So then:

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1] Download Daemons Complete version 1.4, and run the exe to install it.
2] THEN, Download Daemons Patch version 1.5 and unrar it in your SS folder (that is, where you installed the Complete version 1.4). Overwrite all files where needed.
3] LASTLY, Download Daemons Patch version 1.6 and unrar it in the same installation folder, as above. Again, overwrite all files where needed.

Follow the steps 1 to 3, in order.

P.S.: All patches are named in such a manner to avoid misunderstandings, but sometimes it seems it is not enough... :)

Well, I just uploaded patch 1.6, awaiting authorization.

Note that it simply adds the Juggernaut and the Soul Grinder as playable units.
I think you gonna like them :)

The Instability is real suffering.
Cant it be somewhat diminished? When Lost souls is added as squad leader, than the squad cannot be normally selected.
I would rather be for some instability absolute protection aura, instead of only providing it to single squad.
Also the units are in full power only when they are up to 2cm from portal HQ.
Upgraded Obelisks(listening posts) dont have any weapon?
Pity that there cant be a champion and defiler of chaos undivided.

Instability: See here:
Forums.relicnews.com

Upgraded Obelisks (listening posts) damage the morale of nearby units. And the addons also cause area health damage !

Daemons of Chaos Undivided do not have a defiler, but have the warp spawn instead, man!!
As for a champion or herald, they compensate via the availability of all daemons and all doom pit powers.
And in the upcoming patch, they will get the Soul Grinder as well :)

I'm having a slight problem having this work with Codex 3.5 for some reason. I don't know if it's simply incompatible or something, but I can't upgrade my HQ's tier to the next level. There is nothing to click on even though all of the other icons (like who you're going to worship etc.) are there. When I load up the game with only the mod on everything works fine.. does someone know if this is fixable? Or is it simply a compatibility issue? Btw great mod!

Daemons are not compatible with CODEX.

Fast/Draft Solution
If you want to play Daemons, you must "sacrifice" CODEX'es Warp Daemons.
When combining, simply use Daemons BEFORE CODEX. This way you will brake Warp Daemons, but Daemons will be perfectly playable.

P.S.: The game may not start if you follow my solution. I have not tested it. But if you have some basic AE experience, you can easily remedy the issues that will emerge... (just see the warnings file and fix the issues in a case by case basis)

Well, it's a great mod, one of the best i've seen, but there are some mistakes/ deficiencies:
-First, you should make this mod compatible with the campaing, of course I don't want you to actually PUT them into it(but that would be cool), just to make it avaible to play the campaing without screwing with the game manager.
-Second, the Keeper of Secret: His/ Her attacks are a bit...weird, not just too fast(I know that it's his/her ability to attack fast), but actually it's like a polyp flailing with it's arms, not too realistic.
-Third, sometimes the sound goes out, usually when I'm devote the army to Khorne.
-And last, some of the ingame pics doesn't resemble to the actual unit, specifically the Herald of Slaanesh, Daemonettes and the Favoured Daemonettes.
I haven't played all the mechanics of the mod because it is huge but these are fails I've experienced so far, and I hope these are the last.

So Gambit if you had to make a titan class unit for the Daemons what would it be?

Well... Cylarne and Cosmo already made Titan Class daemons :)
You will see Angron (and his company) in UA !!!

As for "Vanilla" Daemons, well the next patch will be adding the Soul Grinder as well. It is no Titan, but still it will be a relic unit.
