Niiiiice. It's too bad there's no other models of chaos cultists - each cultist looks identical, compared to ork units, which always have different helmet, different armor, etc. And then you got the Dark Eldar units all looking 3rd edition; too bad no one's made any new models of mandrakes and warriors that look like the new editions.

There are too few modellers for the game. It doesn't help that the DE codex only got updated well after Soulstorm's release. It's also a shame that all the cool new models and stuff are for SM or Chaos and the other races like DE are stuck with the same old models.

I was positively surprised to see my favorite and only DOW mod I've ever tried got updated but I cannot get it to work. "Failed to activate the requested game!" message pops up every time I'm trying to switch to the mod. I removed the old 1.80.5 and the .module file before installing this one. Not sure exactly what to do with the new requirement, the FreeUI mod. I've placed the file on the root of Soulstorm. Using Steam version of DOW:SS

You need the FreeUI module and the folder in the root Soulstorm folder for it to work. I plan to bundle it with the next patch anyway.

Alright, I've found the culprit since I had FreeUI installed the proper way it seems. Looks like I was missing Objective_Points_SS thingy that I couldn't find within your patch notes. Your .module file was able to help me with figuring that one out so it's fine now, at least I was able to launch the mod. I'm yet to discover how awesome it is. I was about to post some suggestions, complaints and report some bugs regarding v1.80.5 but looks like I was too late but worry not, I shall do it somewhere in the future. Thanks for at least confirming the installation path for FreeUI!

Hmmm... it wasn't supposed to require the Objective Points mod. I did have it as part of the mod at one point, but I removed it and I was supposed to update the module but... didn't?

Looks like this has to be the case. Here's how the "insides" of the .module files loos like:

[global]

UIName = CornCobMan's FunMod
Description = A Soulstorm mod by CornCobMan which changes...things.
DllName = WXPMod
Playable = 1
ModFolder = CornCobMod
ModVersion = 1.81
TextureFE = Art/UI/Textures/Title_winter_assault.tga
TextureIcon =

DataFolder.1 = Data

ArchiveFile.1 = CCM_Art
ArchiveFile.2 = CCM_Attrib
ArchiveFile.3 = CCM_Sound
ArchiveFile.4 = CCM_Art2

RequiredMod.1 = FreeUI
RequiredMod.2 = Objective_Points_SS
RequiredMod.3 = DXP2
RequiredMod.4 = W40K

Did a little bit of testing and soon gonna report some persisting and new issues I found/felt that are worth mentioning
