A huge mod project containing new icons, sounds, taskbars, textures, army schemes, maps and more.

My mod will be changing for the better as new changes are being made to the icon mod and possibly new faction textures.

Posted by on

I've come to the decision to scrap my entire icon mod in exchange for a faster, more polished approach to making icons. Rather painting an entire portrait for each individual unit, I've decided to instead, pose the units in 3DS Max and paint over screencaps for a more accurate and quicker result.

A comparison from the oldest Battle Sister icon to the newest.

However, I'll only be making icons for my retextures to avoid the possible chance of duplicating my work for old and new. The retexturing for Sisters will be on hold for the time in favor of working on the new and improved icons that cover all of my current textures. I'll also be focusing only on vanilla Dawn of War rather the Ultimate Apocalypse, which will come later when necessary. So what will happen to outside factions?

Well, I'm going to consider choosing another faction to continue once vanilla Sisters have been 100% completed (all textures for infantry, vehicles, buildings, all icons and possibly a new taskbar). I don't know how much progress will be made adding another race to my list but I'm willing to try. If demand is high enough, I'll consider a crowd funding method to keep the project rolling. If said method becomes successful, it would help keep me working on this mod on a daily basis. My current art job is what pulls me away but if I can make a living doing mod work, I'd be more than happy to wake up every day to texture and paint icons.

When Sisters are done, I'll start a vote to consider what the next faction will be. In the meantime though, I'll be making new Sister icons for every unit I've reskinned and once that's been covered, I'll continue texturing.

All default soulstorm races icons need some love I think...
So you just can't choose a wrong race to work with))

Yeah there's no wrong race. I just want to know what faction everyone would want to have polished next.
