The Tyranid Mod is an ongoing additional race modification for the original Dawn of War series, based on the Tyranid army from the Warhammer 40k tabletop game.

Tyranids are an intergalactic predator race which moves in hivefleets from world to world, devouring all living things and natural resources they can; leaving behind nothing but a barren rock, devoid even of atmosphere. Seemingly without individuals, Tyranids have a single hivemind that spans billions of their genetically-engineered combat organisms. Faceless and implacable, the Tyranid race is unrelenting and unstoppable. And their origins remain a complete mystery.

Although now already featured in Dawn of War 2, the Tyranid Mod Team is still hard at work trying to bring the Tyranids to Soulstorm (and if we can, Dark Crusade as well).

Okay, so in our last news update (which I'll admit was a while ago, sorry guys), we had a bit long list of items we were working on.

Here's what's left, as of a couple of days ago:

Animation
1. Hive Tyrant:
- Re-animate
- Center synapse marker

OE
1. Unify weapon FX (only Tyrant missing)
2. Check and update for missing sounds

Code
1. Hollow's suggestions:
- Research time and cost changes (?)
- Carnifex roster redesign (?)

And we're currently testing a new version of 0.5b3. It's been a lot of work, particularly given that most of it has fallen to just one of our team members, but we're getting there.


0.5b2 FAQ:

So we seem to be getting the same three questions over and over from new people downloading 0.5b2. To save time, here they are in short form, with their relevant answers:

Why don't I have a builder?!
Click the button at the centre-top of the UI bar across the bottom.

Why does my build menu go away when I select a unit?! Why doesn't it come back when I de-select that unit?!
Because selecting a unit de-selects the hivefleet - exactly the same as when you click a unit that isn't your builder, you won't have your builder selected.

Why is the AI not doing anything?!
Have you installed the CPU player patch yet? It doesn't always fix the problem, but it does for some people. We think it should be entirely fixed in 0.5b3.

Yeah, I've got DoW III and I must admit it kinda sucks!
So we can quietly move on to finishing and polishing our DoW I projects.

Hmm. No worries, DoW III will be a letdown eventually anyway. ******* multiplayer moba beta, instead of pure RTS. Only on Steam no less!
I still look forward for Gargoyle/harpy air unit. Maybe even mycetic spores,tervigon(zerg swarm host),mawloc,tyranofex? :D
Take your time.
BTW:any chance of cooperation between you and Eranthis for the additional tyranid sounds, unit/structure quotes?

Any specific reasons for wanting to launch next version pre DoW 3 release?

I don't think you have to worry, regardless of which Dawn of War games you love or hate, they all look and seem to play very differently. So there will probably be good reasons to return to both the older games.

I don't think so, it's just always been slow.
