So I gave up trying to get it to make a mod shortcut - as far as I could see that would have required me to include a copy of the Soulstorm.exe in the installer which is probably not the best idea.  So no direct shortcut to open Soulstorm in Tyranid Mod mode, but I'll figure out a workaround next time.

Anywho, first things first:

UNINSTALL 0.45SS BEFORE INSTALLING 0.5B1


I can't stress that one enough.  Not doing so will prevent you from multiplaying properly, and may cause other unanticipated side-effects.

But, I've included the shortcut for the AI Control Panel both in your Soulstorm folder and in your Start Menu, so for those of you who think the AI is too hard (or too easy) it's now really easy to tweak it.

Otherwise, everything's pretty much covered by my last news update.  Happy hunting!


BUGFIX:

The Tyranids.module file is wrong and needs updating.

This is the correct file, save it to your Soulstorm folder and overwrite the Tyranids.module file that you have.


FORUM EVENT:

At the moment we're running a poll to see what colour the Influence bar should be in 0.5b2.  If you want to have your say, vote here.

New units won't be until 0.6 at the earliest, and we're still working on getting 0.5 finalised.

Is it possible to merge this mod with Purgation of Kaurava? I have heard that its possible with some mods.

Ask the POK developer about that. To properly combine this mod with POK it is needed to change Tyranid's mod balance significantly
