It's finally here - the biggest update yet for Soulstorm: Strongholds. In addition to a fully revamped Thur'Abis Catacombs mission, v1.4.0 also sees the...
The Soulstorm: Strongholds mod unlocks all seven Dark Crusade and all nine Soulstorm campaign stronghold missions, allowing them to be played directly from the skirmish menu. Compatibility is included for all vanilla and most mod races, which means that the Dark Eldar and Sisters of Battle can be used on the Dark Crusade missions, blue-on-blue match-ups are permitted, and support is included for the following mods:
Any other new race mods that are released will be added to this list. This should be a fairly easy process, as I have re-coded all the mission SCAR and NIS files to make it as simple as possible to add extra race compatibility.
The infamous Dawn of War narrator's voiceovers have been included at the start and end of each mission, although these can be skipped without affecting anything else.
As an added bonus, I have included three (sort of) new missions, entitled Mannheim Bay, the Suratha Precinct and the Lands of Eternity. They're basically conversions of existing missions from Dark Crusade and Soulstorm, using the Steel Legion and Black Templars as antagonists.
Full instructions on how to get this mod set up correctly can be found in the readme file accompanying the most recent release version (currently v1.32a), including a list of all required and optional mods with download links. I strongly advise that you check it out before you get started.
