This is the first public beta of The Dance Macabre: Harlequins modification for Soulstorm 1.20.

This mod has a long history, starting right back with winter assault. The mod was left abandoned and the assets public released, however it was then revived by a new team who have taken it further towards completion.

Our team is currently very small, consisting of Undirector and fuggles working on the code and with two testers. Where we can we are beg/stealing/borrowing 3d help and jONES1979 kindly helped out on more than one occasion but we lack any dedicated 3D/OE/FX support, which sadly will hold the mod back from being a completely polished. The known issues on this front are small, but sadly currently unfixable. In fact, one of the key reasons for the release of this build is that the current team feel they have pretty much taken the mod as far as they can and so please consider this both a fully playable race mod and a cry for assistance!

We were unable to get completed voice acting ready in time for our initial release date and now this has been pushed back by another 2 weeks, so rather than sitting and doing nothing, we thought we would let you play.

We hope you enjoy this modification as a lot of hard work has gone into it - Let us know what you think and then look out for version 2!

We also have compiled the next Harleys version :)
All we need is some sound assets (too busy right now for those), but soon, the next NO-LONGER-BETA version will be out !
Many changes, and the race is now much more appealing and enticing to play.

And thanks to Jones'es Objective Points last update, Harleys will have their proper support !!!

Thanks man !!

I assure you, our last build is VERY polished, with countess additions.
It will not be a patch, but a complete official build. :)

Spoiler: And MORE races are coming !!! Soon, we will let out Witch Hunters as well. And it will be just the FIRST in the line. Harleys will soon follow :)

Very exciting! I thought this mod was dead, but I am pleased to see that I was wrong; I eagerly look forward to the next version.

I also look forward to you other factions. I especially hope you differentiate the Witch Hunter faction from the vanilla Sisters of Battle faction.
