Howdo,
Welcome to the Salamanders mod for Soulstorm, which adds a new race, the Salamanders chapter of the Space Marines to your game of Soulstorm.

To install, put the Salamanders folder and the .module file into your Soulstorm root directory, then from the title screen go to Game Manager and select the Salamanders Mod. You will also need jONES1979' Objective Points mod to enable the custom Salamanders LP, and you can get here: Moddb.com

The Salamanders are a chapter who come from the planet Nocturne, which has very high gravity and because of this the Salamanders are bigger and stronger than other marines, albeit a bit slower to react to things. Also, they have difficulty with using aerial equipment owing to the difficulties of training in such an environment. Further, owing to the radiation then they have mutated to have black skin and burning red eyes.

Followers of the Promethean Cult they believe in self dependence, so have trained in the art of manufacture and tend to field higher numbers of custom weapons, armour and as skilled blacksmiths, they have a lot of hammers. The cult values fire and so too do the Salamanders, who favour flamer and melta weaponery.

This mod is not strictly codex, what with them not having one, but is my interpretation of the chapter so I know there are fluff deviations in place.

A bit of background on this mod, if I may indulge you. This mod is my project, started by me on my own and with limited alpha testing to some of my DoW friends and buddies. I had to learn how to do a hell of a lot of new stuff and all the new textures, 2d Art and AE code is mine and the Salamander AI is heavily mine and at one point I was even audio editing! Basically, it started and ends with me. That said, the aforementioned DoW friends have been great with new LP's and unit donations to really make this mod something special. In terms of content completion, this is pretty much 100% done, all that is really outstanding are the custom voices which Thud is working on and then my friends, we are gold.

The Salamanders have arrived in Soulstorm! The Salamanders are a chapter of Space Marines devoted to giant lizards, hammers and fire. Coming from a high gravity, high radiation homeworld they do not have much in the way of air support, but their marines are bigger than the other chapters and have black skin and red eyes, alongside a librarian dedicated to the Promethean Cult and is just as likely to set himself on fire as the enemy!

question before downloading this mod...
as much as i know , in lore stated that Salamanders are one of the chapters that is still able to make and maintain an old weapon so called VOLKITE... that is some thing between plasma ,laser and melta as far as i undrestand, Salamanders also have a version of shadow sword which is called Glaive super heavy that use this weapon tech,
So... does salamanders have this weapon or will they have it?

Yeah, possibilities are endless, indeed.
We just lack of modelers, kitbashers and OE-coders.
