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.

So keeping it simple, the mod is still worked on, more bugfixes and stuff are coming out as we have planned.

Thing is, right now we are lacking someone for the texturing process, due to these real life constraints the guy working behind the retexturing of weapons has to stop for now, so in the meantime we are searching off for anything that is amiss balance-wise.

Without further explanation, heres the changelog which has grown up, but is still a work in progress.

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.

I know it is an annoying question but, do you have an estimated release date or month?

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?

Read the changelog and decide for yourself how polished they will be.

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.
