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!
This addon adds a new win condition, which impersonates small battles of the Warhammer university. Little and limited forces allow players to concentrate on micromanagement. Players should fight for each warrior, actively use covers and pay lots of attention to their battle strategy.
This version works for both Dark Crusade and Soulstorm
Example of an army at the start:

Peculiar properties of some races:
Install your files into the main game directory.
For example: C:\Program Files (x86)\THQ\Dawn of War - [Dark Crusade/Soulstorm]
Compatibility with other addons and mods:
Instant Action should be compatible with all addons and mods except those, which add new races. It does not replace original files, so you can try to launch it with anything without harmful consequences for your files.
Q: When I start a game with this win condition I receive an objective with incorrect text. What is the problem?
A: I have sacrificed these texts in favor of compatibility (See above). However, if you do not use mods, which add new .ucs entries, variant with uncut objective is aviliable: Mediafire.com
Thanks to Ultimate Apocalypse mod team: Krronus, Lord_Cylarne, Gentry_joey, Gambit_1 and Cosmocrat as scripts from their mod were used as a base for Instant Action.
Thanks to CornCobMan as his script was used as an example for some functions of this win condition.
Originally this game mode was created for Dark Crusade only. Soulstorm content was added just before the release.
