This mod adds the Dark Eldar as a playable race in Dark Crusade Skirmish and Online games. No plans to add them to the Single Player campaign exist at this time.

Based loosely on a combination of the old Dark Eldar Codex and the mod creator's own designs, this faction does not play like the latest Tabletop Codex. It does, however, stay close to the ethos of the Dark Crusade - crippling strikes and demoralising abilities that cause your enemy to attack thin air more often than the intended target.

A Soulstorm conversion will also exist at some point in the future, though I haven't decided whether it replaces the default Dark Eldar in that expansion or comes as an additional race.

Compatible with all existing race modifications.

So yeah, I'm moving on with the modding projects in my life. First up is the Dark Eldar Mod, something I have been involved with for a couple of years now. Unfortunately we never really got a team together; I joined the team as a coder and now I'm project lead.

Soulstorm was released some while ago, bringing Relic Entertainment's interpretation of Dark Eldar to the table. For a while people asked whether this mod had any point anymore, and I have to say I wondered myself. But, here we are, and I'm kicking things off again. Mods are done for the modder's pleasure, even if it isn't popular at least it'll be something I'd had the honour of working with.

Here is a brief overview of the structures available to this modded race.

The Archon Commander, your primary Commander and the melee monster of the Kabal.

Both of those are old updates; I have a tech tree that I need to type up and two sets of code to work on. The Dark Crusade version is quite stable - I'll probably be releasing a version soon - however the Soulstorm version still needs a lot of work. But it will be done.

totally dead ! Maybe the creators can release to public the alpha existing version, as they made pretty models and units missing in soulstorm. I hope someone in the team will read my comment and think about it !

The Dark Crusade version actually just needs a few tweaks to be playable. A lot of the art content is unfinished, however.

I plan on releasing the Dark Crusade version sometime this year (honestly, I have a lot of other stuff on that I consider more important) as well as relaunching this page for Soulstorm.

If that doesn't happen then I'll release the mod as-is for people to play around with.

This is lower on my priorities. I aim to get BFG out and completed first! I have problems getting the build over from my laptop at the moment ;(

That said, this mod is far more playable than BFG, all units and researches exist, along with weapons, upgrades, etc.

If you need help, I'm a good corsix codder (I'm the team leader of this mod and I'm a bit familiar with 2d graphics (taskbars, icons...) so if you need some help in these domains, I should be proud to give some to you

I'll bear that generous offer in mind :)

I'm a coder originally myself, but if I ever get round to polishing this I'd definitely want some help with icons and the like!

For the forseeable future, the project is on hold. Not dead, necessarily.
