After a long break due to a breakdown of the original team, we are merging the Purgation of Kaurava and Firestorm over Kaurava modifications. This modification is the result of that merge and will STILL be Firestorm over Kaurava.

Melooo/yooo has been very generous in allowing the two modifications to merge and baz4431 has been heading the recent team reorganisation!

Expect more news as we progress; a Soulstorm version of the modification isn't that long away!

Today's news feature is bringing people up to speed on the Forces of Chaos in DoW40k: Firestorm over Kaurava!

The artwork, and a lot of the code behind it, comes directly from Melooo's efforts while involved with FoK and his own mod; Purgation of Kaurava.  Squads gain visual upgrades as you unlock specific researches! What you see is here an Iron Warriors-themed force with not a lot of research unlocked!

Later on in the game, I chose the a siege-based Trait (Iron Warriors in all but name) over the Zealous Trait and my Chaos Lord and Chaos Marines changed to something more . . . Iron :) Conversely, the Zealous upgrade takes your Undivided force more in the direction of the Word Bearers . . . in all but name.

This allows you to create your own custom Chapters and warbands, but still get the great gameplay of the Traitor Legions of Chaos!

The current internal build is quite polished; Mirage Knight is doing excellent work behind the scenes. Our aim is to get it as refined as we can through internal testing, as the game mechanics aren't solid yet.

Check out our Images gallery for some previews! More screenshots to come when I get time!

Iron Within, Iron Without!

Yes, work in progress.
Don't want to be rude or anything but here's a little something of the new version. However I'm not sure if Onard is working with you guys or not:

Onard:
Here's a short video I just made of a skirmish against the computer with the new internal version. I tried to make some commentaries while playing, but between music being too high and my crappy microphone, you can't really understand what I'm saying. Next videos should go better on that department. Enjoy!

Please, I implore you, this is all I ask of you: Can you change the weapon models on the XV8 Crisis battle suit to it's default model: like shown in this image Moddb.com
instead of Moddb.com
I have tried all my knowledge to revert them back myself but I have failed, from every aspect I see this mod it's all but perfect except this detail.
I have asked for this several times before, but I have been met with silence or deviating replies.

I want this change so the in-game models closer resembles their miniature originals, and not some mixture of the XV8 and XV89.
Please, it's all I ask for.

Well it's not my call (in case you are asking me, since you are replying to my post).
I don't get it, you want them to have the burst cannon on their right arms?

The other screenshot is taken from the Titanium mod, where the XV89 (front) has the XV89 weapon holders (see missile pod) and the XV8 (back) has the regular weapon models (see missile pod) while in FoK mod both the XV8 and the XV89 use the same weapon models, I want the XV8 to use their own weapon models like you would see it on the miniatures, and not the XV89 weapon models.
Like seen as so: Forgeworld.co.uk
Games-workshop.com

To whomever is in charge, if you read this, please, if you're not going to change it, could you at least make it optional so you can choose yourself which models you have for your XV8?
And by this I mean I found the files that governs the XV8 models, It's in DoW40k_FoK/Data/Art/EBPS/races/tau/troops/file:
xv89_crisis_suit.LUA
xv89_crisis_suit.whe
xv89_crisis_suit.whm
If I remove these files the XV8 crisis suit dissapears, replaced by an error box.
If you could include the files that makes the weapons look like they do in the retail version, I'd be happy to do it myself. If I'm wrong about this please enlighten me.

EDIT: The "file" is not actually a folder I just wrote it there to illustrate that the next words are files and not folders.

Can only keep our fingers crossed, I moved to testing Meloo's version of Pok (still Fok mainly just different coding) but if FoK's comes back i'll happily throw my weight behind it again.

Of all the mods for 40 for pure stratagey and enjoyment Fok & Pok stole the spot light for me. that being said though I have been playing other varients such as Dark Prophecy Mod and the Codex mod.

Any way im waffling, overall I hope Fok makes a come back!
