Featuring a new playable race for the game with many new units and functions.
This race is based on the 40k Background and features the imperial guard troops of Armageddon called Steel Legion.
The idea behind the mod is to bring in a new strategie game play where units are more specialist and more units can enter the battlefield. You can play the race on your own or face it as enemy in multiplayer games. It's quite balanced to existing races.
Current Release Version is 1.5.
There is an update to Version 2.0 planned featuring a second new race.

it is the problem of original game, cause new hi-res monitors was not expected in 2004-2006 years.
Anyway, you just need a small file with camera settings. Mediafire.com
Just put it into your Soulstorm\w40k\Data\ folder

The only complaint I have is that tanks or infantry of any kind can't reveal hidden units. Other than that, good work.

If we talk about the latest Dec 23th 2010 SL for SS mod build ( Forums.relicnews.com ), it depends from selected branch:

For the "armoured infantry" branch, detectors are Commissars with auspexes (up to 3 units), and Missionary Priest (secondary commander)

For the "tanks" branch, detectors are Scout Sentinels (available at Tier1).

And for both branches, the superior detector is the Scout Salamander with activated deep-scanning ability. Its detection range is about 40-45 game meters.
