Purgation of Kaurava is a mod for Dawn of War Soulstorm that brings the game closer to codex, this mod aims to recreate a more faithful RTS version of the Warhammer 40k Table Top game, among its objectives are including most if not all the units present in the codices and make more emphasis on the fighting than base management, even more than the original DOW.

Am using a latest Nvidia card. Prior to your upgrade here, i was getting those PINK boxes mostly & some units did appear fine. So were those pink boxes bugs or unfinished units?

probably a bad install of the previous version, as i dont include WIP units without at least a playable model.

Good to hear you dont get that problem with current version :)

There isnt really a need of a changelog, as the main difference of 1.53 with 1.5 is that many game breaking and annoying bugs were fixed.

I could say that 1.5 was a heavily bugged release :S and most of these bugs where planed to be adressed and fixed in the 1.52 patch which i never released here on ModDB due of lack of testing and time.

i thin i spotted one problem with the imperial guard a platoon's heavy weapon didn't fire at the enemy when they're in the range of the heavy weapon, and i think ( i don't remember correctly) the conscripts are doing the same. is it a bug or i did something wrong?

Kaliganforever412 Nov 29 2011, 3:28pm says:

Hmm.. Could I maybe put forth a few suggestions for possible additions to stuff? Ignore me if you please, but here's a short list...
Brass Scorpion
Other Greater Daemons
Possibly make cult troops available for Zealous doctrine
Imperial Guard
Cadet Commissar Squad
Malcador Battle Tank
Space Marines
Baal Pattern Predator
Options for other Chapters (Dark Angels, Blood Angels, Space Wolves, ect.)
Thunderfire Cannon (I think it's something like that)
Ghost Warrior Aspect Warriors
Swooping Hawks
Shining Spears
Shokk Attack Gun!
Daemon Hunters
Better Inquisitional forces (As in, more options for forces besides mainly Grey Knights)
Witch Hunters doctrine(?)

IG - Marauder, Valkyrie (Sky Talon and Vengeance patterns as well), Lightning, Fury, ect.
SM - Thunderhawk
CSM - Stormbird (Thunderhawks available for Renegades?)
Eldar - Nightspinner
Orks - Fighta-Bomma, Chin-Ork, Dethkopta
Also, maybe a hint about the Campaign?
Plus, I've discovered some things that irk me about this -
One, the range of the Dark Reapers. Those bloody things can hit me from halfway across the map, and I can't even seen them - yet, my Lascannons, which should have the same range, can't reach them. Plus, the not-so-lovely Imperial Guard Barrage. The AI has an extreme tendancy to spam this ability, blasting apart my amazing army in a matter of seconds, and leaving me with practically no troops that I can use to send after them.

Right. Sorry for the long comment. As I said before, feel free to ignore me, I just wanted to say some stuff.

Also, some other possibilities... Other types of troops for IG? As in, types of regiments. Vostroyan, Catachan, Steel Legion, possibly Mechanicus? Also, is there any way to put in Ork Big Gunz as well? Ah yes, and all of those fancy new Necron troops. Also, I forget, do you have the Eldar War-Walkers in this? If not, maybe they can be included too. Some other stuff that I forgot about, too. Thunderbolt and Vulture aircraft for IG, Caestus Assault Rams for SM, with Blight Drones for a Chaos mark of Nurgle, along with Phoenixes, Vampires, and Nightwings for Eldar? Plus Blood Slaughterers and Plague Hulks, for Khorne and Nurgle respectively. Plus, there are some other Eldar tanks - Nightspinners, Firestorms, Cobras, Lynxes, Wasps, Warp Hunters, and Hornets. Also, more stuff for IG - Hydras, Manticores, and Salammanders? Maybe Minotaurs and Valdors as well. Or my beloved Gorgons.

There. Another long comment done. Sorry once again! Also sorry for the complete randomness inherent in this one. Anyway, I hope you use at least some of my ideas in this. It would make an amazing mod even better.

Sadly, this release broke the IG's Leman Russes, the turret lacks a texture isntead having that wireframe look.

Which upgrade did you add to the Leman Russ tanks? Or did you just made one without upgrades?

I don't remember well, but one of the upgrades for Leman Russ was glitchy.

Hello fellows,
I don't know about you but I hate the addition of aircraft in "Soulstorm" it was crude and poorly integrated , perhaps if the aircraft worked like ability; they just flew by shot at an area and then left. it wouldn't be so irritating and ugly.
Come to think of it the only strategy game like "DoW" that did aircraft in such a way that it didn't make me never want to recruit a single craft was "Red Alert\" (only played the original)
