Originally a project to improve the base game, the Eranthis Project now hosts the Redux Mod, a recreated version of Dawn of War Soulstorm to include improved textures, models, maps, skyboxes, icons, ui, sounds and more! For the gameplay, Redux also provides a new armour system with larger armies, bigger maps and eventually some newer units. Be on the look out for any patches or updates.

Thanks to everyone for the patience on this next update. I'm happy to say this next installment to the mod is an ambitious one that's taking quite a bit of work.

APD has been reworked entirely to include some new armours that accurately represent Armour and Toughness accordingly. Damages have been decreased overall to make fights a little more methodical as units aren't dying in mere seconds. UI is getting condensed which is always a huge hassle to work with. Ork Weirdboy is getting included with his own fx and abilities. New ork portraits and taskbar, a reskin for a 9th Edition Necron Warrior and some slight development on a Tyranids faction is all planned. I've also just been taught how to fix aviation so aircraft aren't stuck on terrain anymore and can even fly over unpassable areas on maps. Overall, it's a lot of work but it'll be worth it once it's released. Future patches shouldn't take as long as this is a release that's reworking swathes of base game features.

Hi Eranthis, after following this mod for a while and eventually trying out 1.0 I gotta say this is magnificent work unmatched by anything done so far in the DoW community. I hope Redux gets to the point it becomes a new standard where other mods will be built upon, so keep up the amazing work! Finally, I have a crazy suggestion: given Redux is overhauling a lot of things in the base game, have you also considered to band together with bunch of programmers to overhaul the game engine, like OpenRA did with CnC? While this would be a crazy amount of effort, it would allow the game to live past its own technical limitations and provide an updated foundation for modding.

That cannot be done as far as I know. Engine itself is really hard coded and without source code modding community can't do much.

It can be rebuilt from scratch which is what the OpenRA and OpenMW folks did. Long term investment, but worth the effort.

I'm sure someone would have already done it by now. A lot of talented people in the DoW modding scene but I don't think anyone is capable of rebuilding it's engine. The most anyone can do is SCAR coding.

Well, has everyone tried throwing the idea around and looking for programmers? I don't believe the DoW community to be that short in programming talent, and besides outside people might join if something is created. This is how many similar projects got support like OpenMW, OpenXCom and OpenRA. There's little harm in trying at least.

Great mod overall like the fact more units can be brought to bear like 3 Leman russes instead of just 2. Tho is there any plans to continue the sword work I feel like some sounds could use either a boost in volume or extra punch. Things like the Basilisk feels rather flat compared to the battle cannon, and the impact of explosions. Other from some sounds it fits the bill just well.

Hello Eranthis. Awesome mod! I've been having a blast playing it. I cannot imagine how long it took to revamp everything.

I only have one request. Can you buff Dark Eldar dark lances? They are way more expensive and seem weaker than the original game.

That's because Redux's armour system isn't the same as Soulstorm's. Everything has a gradual level of effectiveness against targets instead of being a game of rock paper scissors. Dark Lances are expensive because they can punch through nearly every armour type in the game and are capable of one-shotting space marines, though they should prioritize vehicles over infantry. Every "anti-vehicle" weapon is gonna peel health off of vehicles so it's not just unique to Dark Lances.

Also make sure to research Splinter Cannons asap as that gives your Solarites another, more powerful, Dark Lance to your Scourge squads.

The quality of brother Eranthis' work is exceptional, to say the least.
I dare say it's beyond professional, as it surpasses the professional quality standards, for a simple reason: The guy LOVES what he is doing.
And he is doing it DAMN right - make no mistake!
