UPDATE February 2006: OK, IT IS DEAD
Work on this mod has stopped again - and this time I have no intention of resuming. For my full list of reasons see here: Forums.relicnews.com
If you wish to adopt this mod you are welcome to it.

But in summary:
* The DOW engine scales badly. Large armies choke the fastest of computers.
* Vehicle pathfinding is shocking and use of transports difficult/impossible.
* Difficulties animating and importing Titan models.
* Poor mod tools, shortage of developer support and missing documentation.
* No C/C++ SDK to implement missing/broken features.
* Lack of active participation in mod and lack of feedback from players of the beta.

UPDATE September 2005: MOD IS NOT DEAD.
After an 8 month delay due to personal priorities I am resuming development of this mod. The mod team has new members and we require more. If you ever wanted to contribute to a mod now is the time. Version 0.3 will be released in two weeks and will resolve the incompatibilities. I already have a working installer but the AI is busted. Version 0.4 is planned for release before Christmas. The aim for that release is to have REAL titan models, an army builder and online play.

Anyone asking how to uninstall the mod didn't read the instructions. They can be found at the sites homepage. Future releases will have an installer.

ABOUT EPIC LEGIONS:
Epic Legions brings you Epic Warhammer 40K battles. Build an army with the Army Generator and then jump straight in to the action. There are no resources to collect or bases to build. Just capture strategic points and smash your opponents to dust!!

If you've never played Epic (once called Space Marine now Epic Armageddon) then you simply havent lived. If you have played, then you're going to F*&cking cream yourself.

Well, I hope not to much, a good mixture between dow2 and 1 would be perfect IMHO.

Quotes:

I have to ask about "Dawn of War 3", which you've spoken to Eurogamer about before. You mentioned an announcement that didn't materialise. What's happening with it?

Danny Bilson: There's a lot of rethinking going on right now with the RTS 40k stuff. We're going to do something different, but we're in a bit of a rethinking mode. What we had to do at Relic was prioritise Company of Heroes 2 now and then move back to 40k. With that we moved that over here for a bit - just a bit - because we needed to load all the resource onto making Company of Heroes 2 awesome.

But look, everybody at Relic loves 40k. I love 40k. I also have tremendous respect for Games Workshop and the people I work with there. They're some of the best people I've ever worked with in my career. So I personally feel really strongly about that brand.

So Dawn of War 3 isn't dead?

Danny Bilson: No. But we're doing some rethinking. What that really has to do with is the RTS business, and what's the best way to present RTS? We're not getting out of RTS. It's just, what's the best way to present it in the future? We'll be talking more about that later. There are aspects of Company of Heroes we haven't talked about that are progressive and forward thinking, that we'll roll out between now and the launch of the game. We're just giving you the first look at Company of Heroes 2. There's actually more to it.

Deuce Savage: If they dont leave room for modding then they will lose a lot of customers is one theory.

Modders like myself ("WH40K: Rise of The 7th Reich!" mod and soon to be released "Epic Legions" mod for "DOW: Soulstorm" game) and Lord Doofus ("Ultimate Apocalypse" mod) have upstaged THQ, Relic, Slitherine & gone where no madders have gone before! While it appears that the big companies produce great games, the gaming communities with millions of fans rely upon the modders to expand the games 100x for the better! RTS in the WH40k universe are large scale battles with every units dreamed of is the way its supposed or meant to be! Bwa ha ha ha

I actually had two mega mods compiled! From this several sub mods were created with several story lines that branced out. It was a matter of deciding what story with what mod had the greater impact & effect for gaming. I never was short of ideas & putting the pieces of the puzzle together had its quirks! Epic Legions is actually a month away from release! It has some ways to go but a good chunk is done, its coasting time all the way!
