While adding Black Templars as the separate race, this mod does not change the original gameplay style of Soulstorm and compatible with others race-mods. The mod brings Emperor's Wrath upon His Enemies, the Black Templars Chapter, whose zealous space marines prefer close combat over ranged warfare.

Howdo, [black] brethren!

From time to time people are surprised by some gameplay nuances they found. So here the small ...

...F.A.Q.

- Sometime, my Crusader squads ignores my command to retreat and continue to kill, figth and die! What I do wrong?
This is the codex feature of Black Templars faction, named Righteous Zeal. You should learn how to benefits from it, or avoid and minimize losses.


- Could the crusader squad's neophytes be set to allow continuous reinforce?
There is the UI restriction, that the game can't do continuous "leader reinforce" while squad is selected by player. However there is a trick: if you right-click neophyte icon while another Initiate is recruiting or Weapon upgrade is still performing, and next you are switch to another squad - you will get the desired result: neophytes will reinforce "continuously".
Another approach: Just use my "BT auto-reinforcement" wincondition rule (in singleplayer mode)!


- What are those "Vows" do, besides the Emperor Champion(EC) unlock?

- "Uphold the Honour of the Emperor" vow:

Consumes 15% of all 3 types of incoming damage, but also disables own cover bonuses. It works from HQ, but require presence of EC on the battlefield. Radius is 9999m so it spreads over all the map.
EC has "Shield of Faith" only during "charge" state

- "Abhor the Witch, Destroy the Witch" vow:

Adds +6m to EC's keen sight.
Within 40m radius around EC, it disables abilities of SM Librarian, CSM Sorcerer, IG Psyker, SOB Canoness and Confessor, DE Archont and Incubus. Including both enemies and allies, if any.
Within 200m radius around HQ, it increases speed of infantry in 1.2 times.
EC has the constant "Shield of Faith" effect

- "Suffer not the Unclean to Live" vow:

Within 40m radius around EC, all units with monster_med and monster_high armour types have speed decrease and moral degradation. Including both enemies and allies, if any.
Increase min and max damage of templar's melee weapons
EC has the constant "Shield of Faith" effect

- "Accept any Challenge, no matter the odds" vow:

Increases the charge distance of all tempars infantry and increases the accuracy of melee weapons.
EC has "Shield of Faith" only during "charge" state.


- How to bring back the original camera settings?
To restore original camera, just remove the file: YourGameFolder\BTmod\Data\camera_high.lua


- Objective Points mod! What is it for?
That mod is responsible for correct visuals of Strat/Crit/Relic Flag Poles for any new (good) race/faction added by custom mods.


- Would someone mind telling what the epic song playing in the installer is?
That song of russian music group named HMKIDS.


- I want to know more about how to play Black Templars in this mod!
There is a set of movies, made by our friend BoyarTactics. It unleashes some secrets of faction's gameplay.



To help players better to understand what's going on and also suggest few tactics there are ...

Yes our sorcerer asks you have such a strong chapter can you be corrupted because... All power demands sacrifice... and pain. The universe rewards those willing to spill their life's blood for the promise of power.

Umm, I can not seem to be able to open the mod. I try to launch it from the application, but I get a window that says "windows could not find soulstorm.exe".

Did I do something wrong?

Seems like mod is installed in wrong place. Just find there is your soulstorm.exe is present already and re-install the BTmod in that location.

I don't sure, bro, what is it for. Cylarne and I are friends-in-modding for a long time. If UA would needs anything, they could just ask.

Nice avatar, btw! ;)

I'd love to see all the unique chapters one day ^^....except the Ultramarines, cause they already captured the normal marine codex anyways, oh and is there any chance of having sigismund as a hero/relic unit?(although he's lore-wise dead) or at least an Emperor's Champion?

Yep, it would be good, including custom Ultramarines.

... or at least an Emperor's Champion?

I don't sure. There is already the Emperor Champion in BT mod.

Can you use this with the UA mod? Like can it be separate? Or can you only have one at a time?
