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!

Most of the team has been busy with real life matters for the previous months, but we finally managed to put together a new release. There's still polishing work to do, but tyranids are fully playable and we know you want to try them out.

Due to technical problems, we cannot upload the new version to moddb right now, so here's a mediafire link:

Mediafire.com

HOW TO INSTAL:
1-Delete any old DoW40K_SS folder you had in your Dawn of War Soulstorm directory.
2-Extract this package in your Dawn of War Soulstorm directory.
3-Start up the game and select Firestorm over Kronus from the mod list!

TO PLAY FOK WITH TYRANIDS:
-Instead of Firestorm over Kronus, load up Anphelion Project.

And no, there's no need for extra downloads or other mods.

Noted a problem with the new release.

Map was Jungle Walls with fixed starting points
Team 1
2 x IG, 1 x Eldar
Team 2
3 x Chaos

Holding my own against a tide of better armored foes until I built my Baneblade...and saw that it was adorned in my enemy's colors and badge. I had an Imperial Guard Baneblade done up in the colors of the Black Legion.

I honestly don't know what to say nor do I know how that happened. The tainted Baneblade was subsequently destroyed in favor of a Leman Russ formation.

On the plus side I am loving what you guys have done with the AI, they actually purchase vehicle upgrades and use the unique researches and wargear options you provide.

Why thank you.. it took almost a whole year to script that complex AI with every single commander and many squads with unique addon code.. O_O It was such a labour of love so I hope the FoK team comes back to continue the work. It has some of the best gameplay features + AI around.

Had a second occurence of this, Chaos as the opponent with me as Imperial Guard, build a Baneblade, it comes out with Chaos colors and badge.

Any ideas as to what causes this?

Its colour bleeding.. if faction art is NOT made exclusive to itself and not used by other races this can happen. This is why a faction mod that uses vanilla sources like, say, Eldar Craftworld Mod, only uses its own art in its own exclusive art folder and NEVER use anything from Eldar folders. Balance mods like FoK or UA can't do this unless they clamp down on all their art but that's a lot of work to standardize it.

I find it odd that this hasn't happened before this new release, what changed?

Also is this something I can correct myself and if so how would I best go about that?

If it happens to specific vehicles then its easy to trace the issue (ie. IG Baneblade vs Chaos Baneblade). Yes you have to copy the Baneblade whe/whm + related rsh and wtp files to either IG or Chaos folders then run a tool to set the art paths to the current location THEN change the blueprint path of the unit in the AE to the new location. Done! Real easy but we need a list of all the units that colour bleed like that then we could fix them all pretty quick.

Did you just say, Chaos Baneblade? I haven't yet run across one of those thankfully, only once did I even see Chaos Chimeras.

I can thankfully say that the only thing I've seen out of my Guard plays so far that has this happen is the Baneblade. Infantry look good, light vehicles good, heavies good.

Yep there is a Chaos Baneblade and that's your issue. Chaos side has a Renegades branch and they use a Baneblade as their T4 uber and it likely shares the textures of the standard IG one so its easy to seperate them.

Noticed some other errors, notably with armor values. Tyranid Rippers in the description text say they have Armour 1 but in the HUD UI it says Armour 2 (and alot of HP for such tiny critters, 3 tiny little Rippers have more HP than 5 heavily armored Space Marines!?), the Necron Annihilation Barge being Heavy Armour 4 when the description says "lightly armored" at HA2 and so on. Some of this stuff is misleading.

Granted I am enjoying the new release...and getting my *** handed to me by the newly revamped Necrons and their damned snipers not to mention HA4 Barge, but overall a damned fine job.
