Dawn of War: Professional (DoWPro) is a mod for the Dawn of War franchise that has been developed over many years, and is based on the Warhammer 40000 universe. The mod aims to enhance the multiplayer experience by incorporating intelligent gameplay design and balance with the exciting and spectacular game that is Dawn of War.

No longer will units become obsolete as you gain higher tech, and no longer will you have to spam a certain 'overpowered' unit in order to win.
In DoWpro strength through diversity is promoted, and with the return of the 'hard counter' system from the original Dawn of War game, DoWPro offers the player many different choices on their path to victory.

The latest version of DoWPro is for the third and last Dawn of War expansion: SoulStorm. Boasting nine completely unique races to choose from, DoWpro: SS offers a huge amount variety.

Key Features of the Mod:

- You can now use Wargear in multiplayer and skirmish games.
- The all-famous skirmish mod and the ever useful camera mod already included.
- Exciting and fun gameplay that differs greatly from SoulStorm in ways of how you research abilities and use your units.
- New graphics and visuals for every race.
- Sizeable community of its own, and can be played through the Steam Group, Hamachi Server, or Direct-IP.
- New units for almost every race.
- You can easily switch between DoWpro and standard SoulStorm through the in-game 'Game Manager'.
- A complete and instructional set of manuals to let you know every aspect of the mod and the armies.

Requirements:

- For DoWpro: SS you need SoulStorm, patched to version 1.20. For Steam users it is required its very own latest version.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: 3.60 Update Progress and Changelog

5 comments by H0LL0W on Sep 27th, 2014

So I guess I left this place without news, and you guys deserve it.

So first things first, 3.60 will be the Final Version, no turning back from here, so expect an even bigger polished version.

Second of all, the progress is slow as hell because we want to make sure that the AI works as better as it did from 3.59.58. Not to mention as well that the manuals are being reworked to fit in the changes done through all these versions - and yes, that also includes that Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle will have their own manual, too.

So, you also want the final changelog for 3.60 too?. Here, have at it:

GENERAL

- Last batch of icons totally redone for all races.
- AI completly reworked and 100% stable for all 9 races.
- Manuals totally reworked, including manuals done for Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle.
- English tooltips totally revised (thanks to Azarael` from Mod DB).
- Fixed many inconsistencies between armor types and tooltips in-game and in code.
- Now all 9 races show (almost) all their respective units and HQs on the Army Painter section.
- Fixed how certain squads speech lines were too loud compared to others.
- Re-added the map Blood River Remix.
- Added a new 1v1 map - Refinery.
- Added a new 2v2 map - Water Station.

SPACE MARINES

- Added Black Templars as a teamcolorable army.
- Changed the Grey Knights spell icon as it was the same as one from the Eldar.
- Added Assault Cannon for Dreadnought as a heavy weapon option. Decreased its hardcap from 6 to 4.
- Fixed the Land Speeder marines not showing up correctly with any team colorable army.

IMPERIAL GUARD

- Added the 1st Albion Mechanised as a teamcolorable option.
- Added a healing aura ability for Kasrkin Sargeant, unlockeable on T2. This healing aura ONLY affects the Kasrkin squad.
- Removed the accuracy penalty in Fire in the Move (or FoTM) for the Guardsmen Grenade Launcher as it was not working properly. Heavy Weapon Specialization Research now increases the damage Guardsmen Grenade Launchers do from 1.25 to 1.4.

Hi. Will the final release fix the targeting so units can no longer shoot through walls, cliffs and such? I looked over the changelog and saw no mention of it, but being a pro mod could benefit from this a lot. Either way godspeed and thanks for keeping good old dow alive.

Nope, its a problem related to the maps rather than the units targetting through. There is a way to fix it, however as it has been tried it caused a lot of pathing issues.

The same as anyone could say: When its done.

No, really. Right now we are going through a long (and complicated testing process) besides that, the guy making the updated manuals is having a tough time IRL so I cannot give an aproximated time.

I mean... SoB race has high quality textures which may cause some lags in low performance computer . On the other hand, SoB is not a completed race so it's not balanced enough. Do you mean, in the final version ,you will make SoB available and more balanced in MP games?

Tested this mod a while back and since it's become my favorite skirmish/multiplayer DOW mod.
What I liked about it:
-battles are smaller scaled and thus every squad/tank lost hurts you
-A.I is pretty good (knowing to reinforce, attach commanders to squads, use spells and abilities)
-pathfinding is good (finally a dow mod where I can use troops and vehicles without them blocking each other constantly)
-manuals look very nice with pics and details
What I didn't like:
-the way necron teleporting works here (frustrating when you're in an intense fight and need to go back and forth with clicking to teleport)
-the fire support resource from IG (wish there was an option to turn it off)
-A.I plays better with strong races and from early game can dominate squishy races(IG, eldar, SoB, tau)
Of course I appreciate the effort put into making this mod and hope to see the final update soon.

Thanks for the kind words.

I am taking my sweet time, I know, but I wanna make sure that everything works fine (and not perfect, because lets face it- nothing is perfect) so I can release the final version of the mod.

It is worth of note however to check out once in a while the changelog for it. Who knows if you would find something new added.
