Description:

This mod brings the Black Templars Fighting Company to DoW:Soulstorm game.
Black Templars are zealous space marines that prefer close combat over ranged warfare.
Templars are added as the separate game faction, so this mod does not change the original gameplay of Soulstorm.

Mod team:

Me, aka jONES1979 (AE- ,OE-, AI-coding, voices post-processing)
Skinnie (AE-coding, FX-es)
Melooo (3D models, AE-, OE-coding)
Claymore MD (music, video)
Shodar (testing)

Credits:

The mod based on models made by Melooo, and also reused his gameplay ideas about how to implement Black Templar's 'close to codex' style.
Also this mod utilize some other FOK/POK assets, like updated sound effects and FX-es. THANK YOU, FOK team, you are Best among DoW1 modders.
This mod would not exist without helps of Skinnie.
Glorious Thudmeiser, who organized voice scripting and recording process for the entire Warhammer 40k modding community. Follow his work on Revora!
Claymore MD made the cool trailer for this mod, and also he granted us permission to use some of his music tracks.
Great thanks to warforge.ru forum members who provide me a vital data about mod balance, etc: EyePatch, BloodyVomit, I_Chample, Amibari_Sen (and his friend).

Note:

- This mod requires DoW SS Advanced AI ver. 3.2 mod to play!
- This mod requires the latest Objective Points mod to play!
This mod is for DoW:Soulstorm only. Tested on both CD/DVD and Steam versions.

Is it possible to keep original DOW intro then installing BT mod?

Yup, as I recall, BT mod has its own Engine folder, which merges with vanilla, and has btmod_trailer.avi in it. Play with it and dow_intro.lua scripts, which can be edited in notepad.

Guys, can you please change the name back? I understand the joke, but this is getting too awkward, and it lasted way too long in my opinion at least. Also, what is the most important issue that this mod is unsearcheable with MODDB search field, when you type "Black Templars", which might throw off some potential new users.
Also, are there going to be new updates? The 6ed and 8ed SM codex directly says that BT can field Scout squads (sort of), but deprives them from Oaths; "Abhor the Witch" is the one and only exclusive BT stratagem now.

Ну и какой смысл тогда в таких "обновлениях"? Сделать клон космодесанта с минимальными геймплейными отличиями, как это теперь у GW?

OBJ point mod is needed, but better find the newest version, nearby (it should be in Unification mod)

Is it possible that even as a standalone mod, this mod is incompatible with Unification mod? It keeps "failed to load" error even with a clean install.

It should work with Unification. For better support tell us:
- which version of unification
- which version of Free UI and OP mod
- which mods were you combining, or was it just Black templars and no other race?
- which is the message that appears in warnings.log. When a mod doesn't load a FATAL ERROR message appears at the end.
- Run in -dev mode (edit the shortcut to the game to add " -dev") and look into the logfiles folder

Hello there!
While standalone, BTmod does not need to have Unification mod at all.

But it must have installed 2 others mod from Download section: Moddb.com

1) SS Skirmish AI mod
2) OP_SS mod.

Although, it should be compatible with any newer version of OP_SS mod (published by Kekoulis), I never tested it personally.
