Please be sure to update your Objective Points mod (see below) -- 0.5 beta 2: The second 0.5 series beta release for Soulstorm. If you have 0.5b1 installed...
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).
So I know a lot of you had issues with the old construction menu button. We've decided to go a slightly different visual direction - one that stands out more. It's important to remember that the UI bar kinda represents the hivefleet view of what's going on down on the ground.
With that in mind our genius coder decided to make his own new Tyranid psyker. So, for your viewing pleasure... the new, hivemind-adapted UI bar:
We're also working on putting in the final balance tweaks, fixing up minor holes in the skinning and various other things to bring a bit more polish. We don't have a release date as yet, but as you can see, we're chugging along.
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?
