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.

A quick update on how things are going, plus a preview of a new helpful handy thing!

Posted by on

Hey all,

So currently we're hashing out a major Requisition issue. At the moment the economy swings way too strongly in the Tyranids' favour in T2, so we're trying to make it a bit more balanced. Bit more discussion to go on strategies for how to fix it, but it looks like we'll be testing out an improved balance soon. And that's pretty much it at the moment - we basically have everything else sorted!

Now, onto fun stuff - those of you who bought physical copies of the Dawn of War games should remember how there's that little booklet that comes with it that tells you all about the races, all their units and whatnot?

Weeeeeeell we're looking into making an online one of those. I've put up a preview of the front page of it in the images section, you'll actually be able to flip through it like a booklet and it'll show you where in the tech tree (what tier, what building, etc) things show up and give you a bit of info about each unit, research and building.

So that's where we're at. Hopefully that will be finished soon, we all really like how it looks so far.

Any chance of there ever being an addition to the campaign map to add the nids, or is that outside of the scope (and/or capabilities) of this mod?

It's a post-1.0 plan. We want to finish the race before we do, otherwise things will be even slower. :P

SWEET! You have no idea how happy that makes me. I got out of the tabletop hobby a few years ago because of expense and time investment, but I still love 40k and it made me very sad when the developers moved on to DoW2 without adding the one last faction to a game that is just great!

This mod has made DoWSS near perfect.
