Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War delivers a level of visual detail never before seen in an RTS. Hundreds of units clash on the battlefields of the dark future, unleashing massive destruction through a stunning battery of long-range weaponry before closing in for the finish. Incredible kill animations bring science fiction combat to life like never before, and the gritty future-gothic Warhammer 40,000 setting provides a striking tableau for the chaos and carnage of this grim, dark future, where there is only war!

Hello everyone! Given many people both here and on Discord have been asking me how the Renegade Knight will work in the mod and since I would like to post some progress,I think I could try something different and hit two birds with one stone.

https://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/284/283750/auto/20200713220620_1.jpg

In the upcoming version,there will be the option to choose ''House Glaw Support' at Tier II.This will give you access to many new toys in your arsenal(which depend upon the branch you have selected) at a price which dynamically change your strategies,so you will have to plan accordingly!

https://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/284/283750/auto/20200713214001_1.jpg

Miriael's Branch receives the Knight,as an alliance between the two Houses,Glaw and Devine.
It replaces the Subjugator Titan as the second relic option in the War Machine Portal.
Essentially,trading the raw firepower of the Subjugator with the flexibility of a Knight.

Note:like all relic units,they share a shared cap,so in normal matches,you can only field one relic unit.
However,progress is made in Unification(with which,the EC mod is fully compatible) to offer something different.

Note 2: Lucius' branch also gets the same treatment,however with a completely different war machine which I will not reveal yet. ;)

Once you get your Knight on the field,you will notice it has a unique sub menu.

https://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/284/283750/auto/20200713220633_1.jpg

Upon opening,you will notice a handful of addons/weapon upgrades.

https://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/284/283750/auto/20200713220643_1.jpg

These addons have their own basic requirements (not related to Easter Eggs, simple stuff).
One of them is the extended House Glaw Advanced Wargear upgrade,which farther solidifies your friendship with the House.

https://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/284/283750/auto/20200713214001_1.jpg

Once all requirements are met, you will be able to choose what fits you the best for each situation and essentially make your own Knight loadouts!

https://media.moddb.com/images/articles/1/284/283750/auto/20200713220700_1.jpg

Possible weapon upgrades are:
Right arm:

  • Autocannon(default)
  • Right Chainsword
  • Thermal Cannon
  • Las Impolsor
  • Plasma Cannon
  • Chaingun
  • Lighting Cannon
  • Volkite Vegulaire Cannon
  • Blastmaster

Left arm:

  • Chansword(default)
  • Chaingun
  • Thunderstrike Gaunlet

Top:

  • Missile Launcher
  • Quad Autocannon

Hull:

  • Heavy Stubber
  • Melta Gun
  • Grav Gun

And as a bonus:a ceremonial mask for the head,which gives access to the Ion Shields.

And that should be all folks.Do tell me if you liked this type of a ''dev update'' and if you would like more of this in the future. :)

I should mention that the next version is actually pretty close to release,if everything goes well,so stay tuned for more news regardless!

Have a good one.

So, I have been making maps for SS for a while now. All of them are linked with the game, and in the last instance, the map I uploaded just 10 minutes ago, I even used the Add File option on the Addons tab on this page, and yet, not one of my maps appear in the map list here. Can anyone comment on this? Could the problem be in the fact I am linking to other mods as well as groups? Would like to feature my maps here so help is appreciated.

I want everyone to know that I have brought upon a great shame to this community. I am out of sorry's to give because they can only go so far. I shouldn't be accepted to even post this comment but I am grateful enough to relay this to anyone who does not know already. I cannot claim to be trustworthy and I have disappointed others. I also have let myself down in the process. A big fight over nothing which was my fault has led me down to rock bottom. It was I who failed them, not the other way around. To get to the point and to keep it short, I am remorseful of the fact people here had to suffer and be annoyed from my loony and immature antics. If you feel the need to report my account, it is nothing less of what I deserve because no one needed this. As much as I regret my actions, I need to learn a lesson the hard way if that is what it takes. But you all have the right to know what I had done and I feel that is fair for all 40K fans and enthusiasts. And for any up-and-coming modders out there who are reading this, PLEASE don't do what I did. I beg you, please be better than me. Because these fine gentlemen (the vet modders and devs) dedicate so much effort and devote their free time to making great changes to an awesome game. That is true sacrifice that I did not appreciate, nor was grateful for. Please do not be rude or disrespectful to ANY of them. Well, I did say it would be short so that is the best way I can sum it up. Thank you for those who read and I wish you guys all the fortune in the world in your objectives. Happy New Year.

Best wishes,
Kim

May I ask, what happened?

As much as I am not proud of it, I must admit it because it is true and you all have the right to know since it is fair. I have disrespected the Thudmeizer Mod team, that was eager to be of aid to a mod project I once had control over. This happened in 2018 and carried on throughout 2019. It was when i could not and did not appreciate their help and i was very pushy towards them. I had lied and tried to decieve them after they fired/banned me from the dev discord channel for dawn of war mod development. I resented them for doing so but now I realized that I was the one that was at fault. My choices and the trouble that came with them. My antics from a while back even before i considered modding reeked with me being a troll. I have decided that it was enough and i need to grow up and face reality. I don't know if i'll ever be forgiven but that should not be my focus right now. My focus should be making a difference for myself. I have only proven how much of a failure i had been to those guys. I do not deserve mercy or another chance. I've done too much. I doubt anyone here will even believe me anymore. I've ****** everybody off.

Can I install the dow pro mod if I have the UA or it causes problems when playing online?

kappa21 Sorry for the late reply but you will have no issues.
They use different module files and thus,they do not conflict with each other.Same applies to all properly made mods that do not edit the DXP3,W40k and engine folders directly but whatever change they do,is only within their own folders and modules.

I have a problem and asked in the discord of dow pro and they told me that you can not have UA and dow pro installed because it gave problems with the game since it touched some files of the game and gave synchronization errors when playing with friends
So I don't know what to think

Because I am part of the DOWPro dev team as well and in Discord,most likely you asked if you can combine the two mods into one.No,you can't do that.

But you can install each one independently in its own folder and launch each mod using the mod launcher without conflicts.

For 6 years now I have been playing Dawn of War. Modding it gave me that extra plus.

8/10 because it is a really good game. I am however ashamed that Relic stopped at Soulstorm.

10/10 because I always experienced something new in it.

10/10 100% warhammer

10/10 for Dawn of War I and Winter Assault campaign

7/10 for Dark Crusade and Soulstorm campaign

10/10 for your epic stories and hard work combined.
