All hail the Omnissiah!

The public Beta of the Adeptus Mechanicus Mod is available now for download containing a fully playable new race for Dawn of War Soulstorm with a very unique playstyle!


admechss


The priests of Mars, followers of the Cult Mechanicus have arrived on the battlefields. Driven by their quest for knowledge rather than for conquest, the Explorators are here to recover lost technology, but will fight to the death in this cause. Their love of the machine means that the Tech-priests utilise advanced technology in their weapons and automatons and revel in upgrading the weak flesh with mechanical augmentations.

Arriving in a mobile base, which is both production plant and fortress they use powerful automatons to assist them, however these must have their databanks refreshed by coming into contact with a listening point, or being rebooted by a leader else they will grind to a halt and need to be recovered.

Explorators are highly mobile, moving from site to site and do not use more than the minimum of buildings, so their listening posts are unique in that they can be used for research or defence. Further, they can convert incoming requisition into power with their matter converters.

Truly, the Adeptus Mechanicus have arrived!

Would love to see the legio cybernitica included in future update.
If the mod is made compatible with UA, I think Centurio Ordinatus could do the trick, altho each one are supposedly unique.

Hi. I’m really interested in visitors backstory. I’ve tried googling them but I couldn’t really find anything outside of this mod page. Do they actually exist in wh40k lore? Their constant screaming about wanting to die is what caught my attention
Love this mod by the way. It actually adds something different to the game

From what I found digging in the audio files, it appears as though it is based on the Chrono-Gladiators, an obscure bit of AdMech lore, as described on Lexicanum: "Chrono-gladiators are cyborgs, sometimes made as a criminal punishment by the Adeptus Mechanicus, whose life span is determined by a pre-set self-destruct program; the only way they can extend this is by killing. Each battle they win moves the timer a fraction on the self destruct deadline, driving them to kill in order to keep living."

Not sure why they are given the name "Visitors" by the mod though, and their appearance is more indicative of AdMech Robots like the Kastelan.

Evening! I love this mod (and somehow manage to survive with it in UA multiplayer) but I was wondering if this mod is still being worked on and or any updates are planned for it?

Well, the Knight is still the same.
We plan a future version with many updates, the Knight possibly being one of them!
But... In due time.

I forgot how I usually write reviews so I'll just keep this short and to the point. This mod is cool! Adds a new faction and absolutely different from everything else. Military focused and no base building. - While the idea is nice, I'm not feeling the gameplay. I believe in the past the drones lose morale and stuff then die off and are unable to attack... Loss of morale happens way too easily then the unit becomes useless. Yuck. - Improvements were made. Very good improvements. - Faction is underpowered…
