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!

It matters not to fix ai, just make fitting maps for the mod with resourse points spread out, not gathered at one spot so players will fight and wont camp. Also fix what causes sync errors on some maps, add tyranids as well as fixing the already factions. ITS EPIC GAME AND COMPETITIVE AND THE POINT IS TO PLAYER VERSUS PLAYER NOT PLAYER VERSUS AI !

No! Many can't play or matchmake with other players online so the AI is the other alternative. Needless to say, the forthcoming FoK AI is one of the best in its class for a balance mod in ALL OF DoW1! Everyone will quite enjoy it this time as it fully 110% supports all the complexities of the FoK gameplay dynamic.

Yes, AI is far more important than maps. So this is fantastic news!

It is part of the mod. Due to all the changes implemented to the factions, the normal campaign ended filled with so many bugs that it was basically unplayable. That's why the team decided to disable it by removing the button.

- The new map with an ork stronghold is bugged: orkish buildings can't be destroyed, while enemies and orks do not attack each other at all.
- Khornate butcher terminators bear an icon of the Red Corsairs (while they should get the World Eaters one, right?). BTW will RC be represented ingame like DG or TS for example?
- Khornate berserkers don't have their "favoured" analogue.
- Scouts-snipers can one shot entire terminator squad! Fix it please, as well as the firing rate of the reaper autocannon for some terminator squads (guess it's just bugged);
- Dark Apostles. All Chaos factions have them, while, if I'm not wrong, only Word Bearers really use them. Maybe other factions should get another champion?
- Shouldn't TS Chaos Lord be a psyker/sorcerer too?

i was wondering if this was a multi-player enabled mod sense my friend can't see my games on multi-player we do have the same versions.

Multiplayer should work normally. I would guess either you downloaded different versions (remember the latest beta 2 release was up for some time before being replaced by a slimmer version) or you made some mistake while extracting the files. I would suggest you and your friend to try to delete your DoW40KSS folders and make a new clean instal of the mod, after ensuring you have the same downloaded files.
