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).

0.5b3: Nearly Here

News 20 comments

Hey folks,

Sorry about the wait, I know we run on extreme Valvetime but we do eventually get things done.

We now have a near-final version of 0.5b3 and we're just about to go into final AI updates and playtesting before release.

I can't say how long that will take, but given how long it is between releases and how little you all hear from us it seemed like something our long-time fans would want to know. :)

And for all the Dawn of War modders still out there, we're following through on our art resource plan. The new version is a dual-mod: art resources in one mod and our code in another. This should mean that for those modders who want to combine our full mod with theirs, they can do that, but you'll also have the option of just combining our models and sound art if you want to write an entirely new mod from the ground up without fear of our mod's code disrupting yours. There are going to be absolutely no excuses for anyone stealing our work now.

Again, I know this has been a long wait for you all but we're almost there.

Are you going to add new lore friendly units to the existing races?

Very soon :)
As far as I know, the latest build is ready, and was given to the team for the final playtesting pass.
All I can say is that brothers Zaha and Miros and the Tyranids team, did an excellent job!

Unfortunately I have to admit that this update doesn't add enough in the visual department for images or videos to really convey the changes.

More audio, some animation fixes, working AI, clearer UI, better balance.

Basically 0.5b3 is meant to establish a baseline and clear the way for us to add the really cool changes in 0.6 (different hive fleet variations, new units, etc).

Not this round. 0.5b3 is a balance, bug-fix and asset completion update.
