Exterminatus : Destruction of all life on a world by the Imperium of man.

Setting
This mod is set in Games Workshop's, great Warhammer 40,000 ( 40k ) universe, as seen in Dawn of War and our previous mod WH40K : Rival Species.

The 40k universe is set in the year 40,000 by which time mankind has colonized millions of worlds thought the galaxy by interstellar warp travel. Humanity is ruled by a vast, uncaring, priesthood/bureaucracy on Earth in the name of an all powerful God/Emperor. A galaxy of insidious alien races have threatened and fought the Imperium since its earliest days in innumerable wars and battles.

Developers of this mod have deliberately chosen to include only the Imperium, Tyranid and Chaos factions out of the many that exist in the 40k universe in order to focus on the quality and polished that the mod would not have otherwise. Please do not ask about the other 40k races.

Status
Exterminatus is feature complete and the game is fully playable by anyone. Major new versions will be announced here as they are released, but there are also fortnightly public Alpha builds which being incomplete, unbalanced and often unstable aren't generally worthy of news on ModDB, but are detailed at 40ksource.com.

Gameplay
Each map sees teams of players competing in a series of mission objectives, culminating in a battle to decide the fate of the planet. This mod is purely multi-player, there is no co-op mode or player bots available.

Players that do well for their team are rewarded with the option to use more powerful player classes including special and heavy weapons marines, Terminators, the tank like Carnifex and terrifying Lictor.

Features

  • Three teams, with their own distinct appearance and game play styles
  • Three tiers of player classes, achieve success to unlock superior classes
  • Eighteen playable classes, many with their own unique sounds, weapons and abilities
  • Mission and Objective based game play, with progressive spawn waves

Getting Together
Regular scheduled games are being hosted on a number of dedicated servers several times each week usually mid-week and weekends at between 7 and 8PM GMT. Please check our steam community page for upcoming scheduled games and servers addresses.

Warhammer 40k fan and Source artist Joazzz has contributed to Exterminatus a set of new space marine player models and skins. Joazzz seems to have really responded to the previous news item about how excited everyone was about him making new marines and finally managed to deliver on his promise.

This update to Exterminatus is thanks to Joazzz, without whom it would not have happened. If you see him in-game or on the Discord don't forget to thank him.

  • New Veteran marine player model.

Terminator


Known Issues

  • The scout player model and skins don't match the new marine models.
  • The dreadnaught player model and skins don't match the new marine models.
  • Terminator armour "clips" through the terminator's weapons as the new model is much bulkier.
  • Marine model animations skill look janky as they have been recycled from the previous marine models.
  • The first person view models (hands) don't match the new player models.
  • The existing chapter packs don't work with the new marine models.


Future Plans
Joazzz is working on an overhaul for the dreadnaught and has offered to re-skin the scout to match the new marine models he's contributed. Joazzz has also expressed an interest is making new chaos marine variants.

A set of templates and instructions for re-skinning the new marine models is ChromeAngel's next piece of work, to enable anyone to make their own chapter skins for these shiny new marine models.

Does this mod work on Linux? Some mods don't because they don't contain the linux-equivalent of their .dlls which should be easy to add.

Sorry, no. EX does not have Linux so files.

As the lone coder for this mod I don't feels it's worth the hassle to try and get a Linux build environment running and port the VS solution to a form that will build there.

I've not heard that one before. If you have a dump file in your steam/dumps/ folder dated with the crash you can send it to leader@40ksource.com and I will try to resolve the issue.

Im suprised this mod is still around. I tried for a long time years ago to get people to play it, tried getting games together, then when it got more popular and a small community grew to play it, it was completley filled with some of the worst people ive ever met. I havent played this mod in years and don't recommend doing so. The creators are really awful people and so are most of the people who play the mod.

Some people were abusing a major issue bug where you could spam out infinite spore mines at a fast pace, completely covering the map in mines so the marine team could do nothing. Not a fun experience. And despite the small playerbase, everyone on the tyranid team had no issue with ruining the game by doing this. When I told one of the creators, they banned me or kicked me i dont remember, for "complaining".

Not worth the time even now.
