Welcome to the World of epic wars on Titanium Wars Mod arena.

This is almost classic gameplay DoW Mod but with almost all GW units. If you was tired by "revolutionary revision of gameplay" mods you are welcome here. In this Mod you'll see very interesting dynamic extended gameplay with fully functional single campain, skirmish, and multiplayer. If you dream about epic Warhammer 40000 battles then this is your Mod. If you want to see all Warhammer 40000 units in one mod then this is your Mod. This Mod is a kind of a superstructure over original masterpiece from Relic and it isn't a radical revision of all gameplay ideas of DoW. Main motto of this Mod: "All Warhammer 40000 units must be in DoW!" See Mod's readme-files and visit the official forum of the Titanium Wars Mod on Warforge for more information. This is HUGE Mod. So much work was done and so much work awaits in future development!

Good luck in your epic battles in Warhammer 40000 Universe!!!

Features of this mod:

- Many-many new units and buildings. Extended tech tree. 12 playable W40k-races.
- Many-many new abilities and upgrades.
- New Heroes and fully functional Heroes wargear.
- RPG elements from CutterShane's Heroes System. Experienced units after battles.
- Fully functional single campain, skirmish, and multiplayer.
- And finally Titans and Titan-like units!

Important remarks:

- Main goal of this Mod: all Games Workshop units in DoW game.
- This is high quality Mod. This Mod was made with Relic standard of quality (and even higher for some parts and aspects).
- This Mod was the first DoW mod when you can see Titans and Titan-like units in all game types (campaign, skirmish and multiplayer).
- This Mod changed mind of DoW Community about Titans in game (balance issue). Now we see many mods with Titans.
- A lot of work was made in this Mod framework on 3D-level and in OE-code for Relic and DoW Community models. Many units and buildings were reworked to more quality variants (behaviour especially). Titanium Wars stuff are used in many other mods now.
- This Mod is new view on campaign. You can see new quality of game in campaign (especially in strongholds with new scar-code scripts).

Installation instructions can be found in readme files (file setup(eng).txt in Mod's folder in archive file) and/or here on ModDB local forum.

Note about known software problem under Windows 7: Known problem with campaign playing. Old DoW engine is not truly compatible with Windows 7. (Maybe Windows Vista and Windows 8 too. No any problems under Windows XP 32bit.) The problem is only in the end of some Strongholds in campaign. Sometimes DoW game crash after playing outro before end-mission-screen. This is software problem. Methods of solution are described in Titanium Wars FAQ item 2.11. Please read and use one of these methods.
Note: Steam version of DoW (ver.1.3) do not need methods like 1 and 2.

I WISH TO EXPRESS MANY THANKS TO:

- Games Workshop for creation our beloved Game Universe and serious support to Warhammer 40000 fans for many-many years.
- Relic as best game developers team in all Our World.
- Corsix's Mod Studio and its creator.
- Dawn of War Texture Tool and its creators.
- Brother Santos as creator Santos' Tools for 3Dsmax 2008.
- Annihilation, TTRU (especially), Firestorm (especially), DoW Pro, Steel Legion, Inquisition Daemonhunt (especially), Whitch Hunters (especially), Craftworld, and Tyranid (especially) mods creators. Without those mods, I would never find so many ready-made models and its corresponding elements (textures, icons, sounds) necessary for basic idea of this Mod.
- Enthusiast-creators of new models, textures and FXs for DoW. This Mod was never created without good hard work of modelers and artists from International DoW Community. They created many beautiful good functional models for DoW Mods. Take my hot gratitude guys...
- Special thanks to Winterdyne as author of Warhound Titan model.
- Special thanks to Catwell as author of Great Unclean Ones and Keeper of Secrets models. Hierophant Bio-Titan too.
- Special thanks to Maestrorobertus as author of Stompa model.
- Special thanks to BoyChaos as author of Annihilation Barge, Doomsday Ark, and Ghost Ark models.

- AI programmers from Dawn Of Skirmish Mod Team.
- Special thanks to Thudmeizer for his directions to some existing DoW models which were unknowing for me. (Needs list was partially satisfied.)
- Thanks to SS BugFix mod team for their detailed readme file. Some their observations were very useful and some their fixes were incorporated into the Titanium Wars Mod.
- Eugene Roshal for his great multi-functional file-manager Far.
- My best friend Vadim Nikitin for support.

NB!: Titanum Wars Mod for Soulstorm was restricted here on ModDB since January 2014. Now I unable to upload the new version of TWM-SS here on ModDB by admins' decision. Read below (in this article) and read Titanium Wars FAQ item 4.8 about it. Visit Russian DoW Community to find new version. Number of latest version of TWM for SS can be seen here. Also look on Change log. Private status of TWM for SS is not my fault. I hope you understand this.
==============================================================================

The situation around the Titanium Wars Mod (TWM) for Soulstorm (SS) and its clarification.

This is half-year story. In May 2013 TWM for SS with Tyranid race was created. In the end of May 2013 I spoke with Zaha (zahagiel from Tyranid Mod team) about permission of Tyranid content for TWM. I had a big petition: to allow to TWM the Tyranid content without using "simple combiner" method because there are many-many technical reasons. I asked such permission as exception exclusively for TWM. TWM is not compatible with any other DoW-mods because it have very special concept in all aspects of DoW-modding. All content from any other mods was re-made within TWM-framework. Thus combiner method does not make sense for TWM and this method will lead to glitches which are not acceptable in TWM with its level of quality. Zaha refused in my request, but I have not lost hope to persuade him. I posted on Tyranid team own forum by Zaha's invitation. However I was ignored there. All work was paused until autumn 2013...

In the end of autumn 2013 I created version of TWM with Tyranids onboard for public release (TWM-SS ver.1.00.12). I spoke with Tyranid mod team again... and without good result again. However I saw that Tyranid mod is in long stagnation really. No any new version of old famous Tyranid mod for very long period. I thought that Tyranid content is abandoned now as for many other famous DoW-mods in the past. I was ready to help new Tyranid mod team with my work on Tyranid content which was made within TWM-framework by me. I posted on ModDB about it. No any interest from Tyranid mod team again. What must I do in this situation?

I released TWM ver. 1.00.12 with Tyranid race on board 15 December 2013. I released this version with hope that Tyranid mod team will change their mind and they'll see that new Tyranid (remade by GrOrc) content is really interesting. What we saw afterwards? Only complaint from Zaha on ModDB and Relicnews, his accusations of theft, his other unfriendly actions against GrOrc and TWM. Very strange behaviour, isn't it? Topic about TWM for SS on Relicnews forum was freezed after such actions. And download link to TWM for SS was deleted by admins here on ModDB. Now many people believe that the Tyranid content has been stolen by GrOrc. Very strange opinion. Look on all TWM-info-files and Internet-sites. All copyrights (including for Tyranid mod) are mentioned there. The thief will never admit to stealing. But word "theft" is not about TWM. TWM obey all DoW-Community rules always and TWM never break any copyrights. TWM is old famous DoW-mod now with more than 5-years history. GrOrc worked on all DoW-Community so lo-o-o-ong time. Now we see strange hasty action on the part of administrators of ModDB site and Relicnews forum. It casts a shadow on GrOrc and his TWM. But all can see that GrOrc never do anything against civilized rules of DoW-Community. Just play TWM. Just read TWM-info-files in any version of TWM. I hope that all is clear now for all people. Here my point of view on this situation.

My recent misunderstanding with Tyranid mod team was unexpected for me. Almost all DoW-modders are friendly to me and my DoW-project (TWM) and I never had such problems in the past. Objectively Tyranid mod team just prohibit to TWM using of Tyranid content without "simple combiner" method. Many times I asked Tyranid mod team to allow using of Tyranid content without "simple combiner" method exclusively for TWM. This is not a question about copyrights. This is just a technical question. TWM can not use combiner method because many-many technical reasons. This is my firm position. However TWM never break any copyrights. All copyrights are mentioned always in all TWM-info-resources. TWM have 5 years history now. Everyone knows that TWM always mentioned true copyrights in gratitudes sections and change logs.

Most Warforge users (main part of Russian DoW Communty) disagree with current position of Tyranid mod team in regard to TWM. They want to play with Tyranids in TWM. GrOrc has some obligations to Warforge community. Therefore Warforge community will use latest version of TWM always. It lead us to special decision about current situation with TWM for SS.

Now Titanium Wars Mod for Soulstorm with Tyranids race on board goes to private status. Only users (visitors) of Warforge forum able to use TWM-SS with Tyranids (just a visitors of Warforge too). TWM-SS file with latest version (with Tyranids on board) will be passworded and it can be extracted only by Warforge users. This private status do not break any rules (any copyrights or ModDB terms of service). Any person can use anything in private manner (and for close circle of friends). This private status will be preserved until Tyranid mod team will change their mind or true old creators of Tyranid 3D-assets will appear from their present silence and they allow Tyranid content freely to all DoW Community without any restrictions. In my humble opinion all 3D assets of DoW Community must be in public domain now. DoW1 is too old game now.

I hope this situation will be resolved in future. Ask Tyranid mod team about it...

Sincerely yours,
Alexander aka Grumbling Orc (GrOrc)

P.S. Our donators never suffer from this situation. Also read Titanium Wars FAQ item 4.8.

P.P.S. I summarize long troll's thread (after releasing ver.1.00.14 [31 May 2014]) from my side here.

It is a true shame that we may never get to play with the Adeptus Mechanicus race GrOrc created, his remains the best yet from what I've seen since hardly any other modder is successful at it. TWM is the only DoW mod I play currently, and it would be great to see the new stuff put on Yandex.

About Adeptus Mechanicus in TWM. The main merit belongs to Karandras - talented Russian DoW-modder. He created 3D-content and main gameplay concept for this W40k-race within DoW engine. I adapted the concept to TWM, remade balance, and made a lot of improvements to the 3D-content, AI, and gameplay. Now I can play Adeptus Mechanicus in TWM with pleasure. Great thanks to Karandras for his good work for many-many years within Russian DoW Community.

I played Titanium Wars 'till death, and i want to say something to you; GrOrc, and your team: Your work is wonderfully astonishing, the feel of the mod and the new features are so good to see and play, and i can only imagine how much effort an patience you have been put in this project, so i want to truly say "thank you" to you and your team.
I know how it is out here, people are often complaining and they are never satisfied with the work of a modding team, it seems that a lot of people can't even imagine how much time and talent it needs to make a piece of art like Titanium Wars, it takes time and a lot of effort when you're willing to spend your "good mood day" working on the mod, instead of doing something else, and there are a lot of other factors too that people just don't understand.
But i know what it takes, and i'm sure that there are a lot of other people that like me knows how it is, and we are all thankful to you and your team for the work that you're putting on this mod.
Thanks, from me and all the conscious users out here.

Thanks for kind words. But... I see another one man who unable to read and to know elementary facts. Titanium Wars Mod have no team. Never. Only one man make this project all time its history. If somebody really like some big project then such person will know true facts about it. Otherwise, words of respect are worthless and do not contain true meaning. "We are all thankful to you and your team" - this is citation. Team is absent. Therefore you have no true knowlege. You are grateful to nobody. You are grateful to non-existent people. And true workers are left without gratitude. And word "team" made another portion of lies in this world.

Who should we thank for the Titanium Wars Mod? Firstly, his creator, who is only one. "Team" of one man who works solo in most aspects of the Mod. Without his creativity and enormous work, the project would not have arisen and developed. But that is not all. It is necessary to thank every 3D-modeler and 2D-artist (texturer) who created 3D-content for new DoW units. It was within the whole DoW-community and the names of these people are well known. Good 3D-modelers exist in small number and they have true merit before the community. They are worthy of true gratitude. All true intelligent persons know their wonderful work. I would never have done my Titanium Wars without the work of the good modelers from DoW-community. They are from past times usually. "Modern mods" and "modern modders" - they have nothing to do with this... True list of true workers in TWM-readme files and TWM-FAQ. Look on teams of old DoW-mods, and you'll find true workers.

Are you ready to say true gratitude? ;)

When a bunch of people works together, that's called a team. Nowdays "team" means something like a software development house, but it's not like that; the word "team" means that you was not alone making textures, models, animations, effects, sounds, scripts, coding etc
So, yes, my words have a true meaning and i know what i'm saying, there is no citation.
Just because no one says "thanks" it does not mean that your work isn't appreciated or valorized, i can assure you.
I just thanked every person that helped you to make this mod reality, there's not fake words in what i've said.
Have a nice day.

When you say "your team" it means that there are some number of people who work in one project. But on TWM work only one man. Modelers from DoW-community worked on their own projects. They never worked on TWM specially. I took 3D-content (sometimes abandoned and unused long time ago) and I often made new units from scrap (coarse blank) and/or I made ready units more perfect and made some special TWM-features. Hence you say very incorrect words when you say "your team". I have no team. I never had team. If you continue to say word "team" for Titanium Wars Mod, it is just ugly lie.

Then, if you did everything and no one helped you, my words weight is doubled, because you're the only modder of the project.
Kudos to you, GrOrc

Now you understand why this project gone to darkness. If I have no understanding even from good people, like you, then I have no wish to make public version. Now TWM is my private mod as it was in first year of its development. I have finished full circle of life of this priject and all had come to natural status as in its start time. Mod only for one man who play it with special features. Gaming community was not formed around TWM. No gamers for TWM - no public life. Now no one play TWM except me.

I can understand what you're saying.
I'm a content creator too (i make music, alone, i do all by myself, practice, writing, recording, mixing, guitar, bass, drums, effects, videos, everything) so i can fully understand you, but there is no purpose on making something without releasing it, and i'm very jealous of the stuff i make/i do/listen/etc, but think about it, what would life be if no one release and share stuff made by each of those people unique talents ?
It can be easily answered: we would still be at primitive age.
Now it's your choice, it's always been your choice, think about it and make the right decision, because your mod is pure quality, and it DOES matter, it MAKES a change in the gaming/modding world of Dawn of War.

TWM is the past. Its time is gone. Its brigtness in the past. Now this is very old game. Now TWM go for the rest. TWM was never surpassed in many aspects. It left undefeated. Sleep calmly, old friend.
