[DC] Veteran Mod

List of Donators to this mod:

Deuce_Savage who has donated twice already, many thanks to him for his support.

Donation is not a requirement to play this mod when it comes out but it is a very appreaciated courtesy that is a clear sign of support from those that are following the mods progress. Other forms of showing support are equally welcomed.
The development of the mod is not dependant on donations, there is no one else with more desire to play the final version as the members of the team and so although it may take a while to be finished, the mod will someday be finished (unless something really bad happens, let us certainly hope not!). That said if you wish to donate to the mod team contact me through private message.

A small video update intended to show most of the currently available Renegade units and their unique active abilities (most of the passive abilities have been refered in previous videos).

Icon work is currently lacking and so most units have the correct descriptions but lack in unique icons to describe them visually. Icons should be worked on later but currently I have struggled to find the best way to represent some of the units, specially squad leaders in a unique way that is easy to identify even on smaller icons.
Now about the units: renegades, disciples, exalted champions and HWT have been refered on previous units and not much has changed that can be currently disclosed but there is indeed a new unit to talk about, the disciple bodyguards. Disciple bodyguards are an important squad for renegade players since they allow the use of the Renegade Demagogue (which is their squad leader) and being the Demagogue the ultimate leader of Renegade operations, expect several passive bonus to be applied to troops around the Demagogue but also the benefits of the "Master of Renegades" ability which affects most Renegade units (the exception being the basilisk) once the bodyguard is recruited. "Master of Renegades" provides several important benefits, like higher morale and morale regeneration, which are proportional to the number of soldiers in each squad of Renegades. Besides these global benefits the Renegade Demagogue also possesses an aura that provides benefits to nearby troops. Basically keep the Demagogue alive and near the troops and Renegades will become a very powerful force.

In what relates to unique active abilities, Renegades now have access to Combat Drugs and Baleful Judge (Renegade Enforcer) along with Unnatural Vigour, Warp Flux and Creeping Terror (chaos psyker), abilities based on the Renegades&Heretics list in IA XIII - War Machines of the Lost and the Damned.
Starting with Combat Drugs, this ability provides bonus damage and reduces morale lost in combat for some time but due to the drugs side effects all members of the squad suffer a random amount of damage (currently between 50 and 100).
Baleful Judge is the good old execute ability from IG but with different benefits, while execute in IG favours mostly the lasgun mob, Baleful Judge benefits both melee and ranged combat capabilities, thus being useful in melee combat.
Unnatural Vigour increases the speed of units around a psyker for a short time (could be useful to reach somewhere quickly or retreat safely).
Warp Flux is similar to lightning arc from IG but focuses a bit more on morale damage and is extremely useful specially when combined with Creeping Terror.
Creeping Terror Paralyzes an enemy squad for a short duration, preventing them from moving or attacking. Although it deals no actual damage, this ability allows you to stop strong units so your weak Renegades can deal some damage or allowing you to retreat to regroup.

This mod is for DC, since moddb doens't make any distinction between DoW, WA, DC and SS, I included the necessary information in the mod title [DC] Veteran Mod indicates it is for Dark Crusade.

You also won't find a download link as it is not released yet, quality needs time.

hi I just wanted to say great stuff so far! a lot of pretty interesting ideas, I haven't seen else where.
Also I was just looking at your renegade medic picture(which is awesome by the way) and It reminded me of a old mod for winter assault. the mod author had replaced his medic's sword with this suitcase med-kit thing, which made it standout from the normal squad leader. I'm not sure the name of the mod unfortunately, but I just wanted to throw that out there just in case ^.^

Regular IG buildings only fire when there are units inside like before but I am considering changing/adding researches to affect garrison weapons just like they affect the weapons of soldiers. They are already more useful that in regular DC as the stats reflect more the stats of the weapons used by the infantry since in Dark Crusade and Soulstorm garrison weapons like plasma guns barely did any damage opposed to the good damage they deal when used by guardsmen or kasrkin.

This concept however works differently and is supposed to help in establishing frontline defenses:
Although visually the same building as the infantry bunker it possesses weapons from the start (lasguns, plasma and missiles) in a given direction (directional defense) but garrisoning enables weapons on each of the other sides (no squads fire in one direction, 3 squads fire in all 4 directions). 4 upgrades to this building concept enable additional weapons and benefits in the surrounding area. Each add-on to the building is represented with a flag (which were not textured correctly when the video was made) and they are cumulative, for example the first add-on enables wall mounted flamers to be used and that add-on is required for the next to be purchased. The second add-on enables heavy bolters, the third turns the bunker into a healing station healing nearby soldiers and the fourth allows vehicles to slowly repair around it. There is also a fifth addon which is not represented with a banner but actually adds an antenna to the bunker providing additional benefits.

I am considering adding weapon upgrades to regular buildings though but have not had the time for the heavy testing required for such a thing. What I had in mind was something like add-ons that replace garrison flamers with garrison melta weapons and similar weapon changes (from anti-infantry to anti-vehicle which is more adequate late game).

Why is this mod for crusade? Most people don't play it anymore. I suggest you pay attention to your praetorian mod.
