This is my first mod that I am in the process of starting. I'm not in a hurry to do it because I know it may take a long time, so even it's beta won't be released anytime soon. However, I will try my best to make the mod worth the wait considering that a lot of models are going to be custom made by me. SO, having said all of that, now for the breakdown of my mod: Every mod should have some kind of unique feature set apart from all the other ones. As a result, not only am I making this mod as close to the lore as possible, but also, this is a first for Dawn of War as a whole. Over 80 percent of the units will not be squads since the Custodes are usually individual warriors. However, there are rare occasions where Custodes must fight in groups. Uncommon situations but they take place during the Horus Heresy. The mod will have a unique system of units. The Adeptus Custodes units are very powerful, yet come in small numbers. The aim of this mod is quality over quantity. So welcome to 30K.

Slowly but surely, this project is continuing it's progress. I have yet to get it in true gear, but my team and I have been working on our parts as efficiently as we can work it out, so don't get your hopes down. But if you do already, then I am sorry you feel as such. If you were hyped for an instant beta or release or huge update like in game footage, it was a waste of energy you ought to have saved. If you lose hope or faith in this upcoming mod, no one is asking you to stick around but you will miss out on things in the future.

NOW! For the mod. My current ideas span through these elements. Unlike all the other factions, for the most part, the Adeptus Custodes for their units will have both a Mark system or research in order to get their core troops for their buildings. The Tier I building (Adeptus Custodes Militia Webway Gate) will have two marks as mentioned below in the comment section. It covers it in full detail.

Through my research on the internet and in the books, since the Custodes have a huge variety among their units (much more variety than I thought originally), they will have two separate marks. One is called the Adeptus Custodes Guard and the Legio Custodes Guard. The same will apply for their upper tier units and even vehicles. The vehicle building will also have two marks. One called Adeptus Custodes Vehicles and Legio Custodes Vehicles. Unfortunately, there is not enough room to work out all the units in one setting, so separating them with marks is the best idea I could come up with. Quite frankly, it also gives options to the player. That way, one half of the forces for example could have the standard Adeptus Custodes Guard as the main troops and have the Legio Custodes Vehicles of legend to aid them in battle. Or it could be vice-versa or even just by going one single mark path the whole way of it just being Legio or Adeptus. In either case, there's going to be a unique style of gameplay unlike any other faction available in any other mod.

My aim is to make the upcoming mod as ornate and as close to the lore as possible. I have been going around, getting advice from seasoned modders out here in regards to the voices and mod making in general. One informed me about the Sisters of Silence and them not having voices. He had mentioned to me about them needing something as for their voice commands. And so, I could not come up with a different idea than to actually make voices of my own. Of course, I figured another unique feature I had in mind was to make the mod somewhat, comical in a way. But thus far, I have received bad feedback from somebody, thus, I will have to reconsider it. But fret not, I'm a rookie at this so it is not too late for improvement. The plan is already laid out and the blueprints are set. Trouble is getting the tools to make it all happen and come to life. This is what I am trying to do as well on my end and on some of the team members end. But until that time comes, it's gonna be cumbersome progress. Just relax and occupy your time with other mods if you are not patient enough to wait. That's what I've got for that.


About the pessimism, negativity and nasty remarks

No one want's to read it and last of all, me for that matter. Save it for somewhere else but here, otherwise, I'm not even going to bother replying to it. If I see it here, it will be deleted, period point blank, because I should have made myself clear enough in the past, not to mention, I hate having to repeat myself over and over and over again. I'm through with it. You don't like what you see, no need to stay, right? I thought so. What you may not like about it thus far could be ironed out later, but I move at my own pace, not at anyone else's. I understand that through humility comes success, but having said all of that, this is my final time addressing this matter.


And....

I will be on vacation next week, so like I said in the last article, if I am not online for a while, say a week, 2 weeks, perhaps even longer, you know why.


Welp...

That's all I've got as of this moment. There will be more that I'll share later on in regards to the project. For now, Peace and cheerio. ^^

Begin with the attribute edition, abilities, balance... using placeholders and get an alpha. Models will arrive sooner or later if the project is worth.

Until I can find a way how to make the Sisters of Silence seem closer to the lore, it's going to be a hassle and I'm working hard to do all that I can, inside and outside of this mod. Some people still think this is a joke. Well I'm not a diehard loregeek like others may be, but I'm also not going to release it until people are comfortable with the content. Stuff in the video/audio sections are not final! Get that in your memos people. The hype train is far from it's engines starting, let alone going at full throttle.

Almost certain sisters of silence are mute. You could just do the sound of marching or something

My thoughts exactly. I guess gun cocking too. Welp, I guess those voices for them will be for something else.

If I remember correctly from the early Horus Heresy Novels, sisters of silence initiates who have not yet taken the pledge of silence can still speak and often spoke for the sisters as a intermediary between the sisters and other parties. These could be the ones who speak when you use the sisters.

NEW UPDATE ON THINGS MY AMAZING PEOPLE! The barracks for the Custodes guard troops will be broken down into two parts; The 'Adeptus Custodes Guard' and the 'Legio Custodes Guard'.

Difference is that the 'Legio Custodes' were the name given to the Custodes BEFORE the Horus Heresy. This means that they are revered veterans of the Great Crusade and perhaps even throughout the Unification Wars theater. Having said that, they are the ones that survived those eras and have a deep connection to the Emperor, thus still serving under him. Not to mention, they are far more powerful than your standard Custodes, exceeding even their ranks. However, they are few and far between even among their Custodes brethren, so they are extremely rare. They are like the "Lesser Companions" in a way. And out of the one thousand Companions in total, they make up about seven hundred of them, while the remaining three hundred are the closest, personal bodyguard to the Emperor (The Emperor's Companions). This also includes their ancient vehicles such as their Pre Heresy Dreadnoughts and even some of their tanks. So whenever you see the name 'Legio' in a unit's name, they are the revered veterans of the Pre Heresy era such as the the Great Crusade and Unification Wars (Unification of Terra). With that in mind, keep aware that this also means they are more expensive to summon to the battlefield and will be on a higher Tier level to get than their standard Custodian counterparts. On a side note to the 'Legio Custodes Guard', the models will have the highly ornate armor depicted in most 30K related art such as this: S-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com S-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com I.ytimg.com

Now, the 'Adeptus Custodes' is the current name for the Custodes as a whole AFTER the Great Crusade. They have remained in the Imperial Palace for security purposes and saw few battles and campaigns in the Horus Heresy eras. They are rarely called to action throughout the 40K era, and its usually for just a response to a severe appending threat that is overwhelming a neighboring region or planet within or among the outskirts of Terra. They often work alone, spreading the Emperor's will among the stars through infiltration and subterfuge. But when called to battle, they often form the backbone and vanguard for the Adeptus Custodes, riding swiftly into the front lines in the Emperor's Gift Grav Rhino and sowing panic among the enemy. They don't fall too short from their superiors, the Companions and they make up the vast majority of the Custodes in general. They also have newly advanced Dreadnought variants and many other specialized vehicles to aid them in battle if need be. On a side note to the 'Adeptus Custodes Guard', the models will be based off of the new edition tabletop miniatures from games workshop depicting them. Here are the examples: Pro.bols.netdna-cdn.com Games-workshop.com Pro.bols.netdna-cdn.com

All of this in general will give the faction much more variety in one.

If you have gotten this far down the lines, thank you bunches for taking the time to read this update.

Well great people, that pretty much sums up the rundown on those things that I wanted to make clear to everyone. But if you have further questions, you are welcomed to ask and I will provide an answer to them when I get around to them.

Little reminder: from here on out and as of this day forward, anyone who makes a negative comment will have their comment deleted/removed for harassment, slander, disrespect, and/or making rash demands. It's not me trying to be a hardass, but I'm just getting irritated by people stepping on my toes about this project. So I have to be stern for once with people here. I usually ain't strict, but enough is enough. I won't have myself and my upcoming mod look like a breeding ground for negativity.

That is all. Return to your regularly scheduled program. ^^

I thought I'd let everyone know that I started this project mainly because of me having a dream of making a mod like this and no one else had the absolute interest. Therefore, it's the one modification that has not had as much love compared to the rest.

The Emperor's Companions deserve the love, no doubt!
