Welcome to the Night Lords Modification for Soulstorm!*

This mod appeared one day on the Team Thudmeiser developer forums, I believe mostly the work of Torzel with models from WarSmith and so knowing nothing about the Night Lords, I had to have a look. Night Lords are fascinating, but also an example of where Games Workshop makes cool lore that leads to lackluster TT adaption, their one great power being that if you for some reason set a match at night then your men can see better - woo!

This mod add a new race to skirmish and multiplayer and emphasizes stealth and ambush through use of cover modifiers, the likes of which DoW3 will likely never see, alas!

Embrace the Night Haunter! Own the Darkness and the Shadows!

Friends.. the project has hit a milestone and needs testers to ensure quality.

This is our progress so far.

Overall Build - 100%
AI - 100%
CODE - 100%
UCS/Info Text - 75% (still not cleaned up or organized yet)
ICONS - 75% (placeholders for now but generally well situated)
UI Bar - 90% (may need a tweak but is pretty good for now)
3D - 75% (Project uses mostly custom NL assets while others are more.. Undivided)
Sound - 100% (Although admittedly uses mostly vanilla CSM sources)
Speech - 0% (All Night Lord voices are scripted AND voiced but not put into the project.. YET!)
Music - 100% (Full Main Menu and In-Game is done and quite spectacular!)

You'll find the general gameplay feel suits a mash of both vanilla SM and CSM with a hint of its own style.

Testers are welcome.. please go HERE and register: new NL specific forums are now in place so the Beta can be conducted.

Thank you everyone for your participation!

Dear Thudo

I love this mod, and find it incredibly enjoyable. There's only a couple suggestions I can make, but I think it would be amazing if you could add in an Apothecary, and a Prophet, similar to Talos Valcoran from Soul Hunter. Also, is it possible for you to increase the maximum Atramentar Squads to three? They're so fun to play around with, and I cannot wait for Konrad to arrive. I have another suggestion, which could possibly be integrating a Guard squad and naming them Void-Born or something.

Sorry for the late reply brother....
It is just that we have shifted our focus to specific mods (Ultramarines, for example). To that end, we try to prioritise the races' development.
Night Lords are not at the top of the list, but we hope that we will eventually deal with that as well.
See, we need coders to accelerate development, and there are only 3-4 active members right now - including me :(

0.7.29 Release is NOW AVAILABLE!

Please go forward with this release and enjoy.

There is still work to be done (ie. adding all final processed voices including Konrad Kurze himself) to fully finish this fantastic project + add full Unification support and more.

Baby steps.. oh and.. beware the shadows... >:]

Hey there, I just wanted to thank the creators for their work in bringing the fear of the Night Lords to the game. ^_^

Also, while playing I noticed that this mod causes a bug with the Space Wolves when played alongside them through the Unification mod where it turns all the Space Wolves unit names into numerical gibberish. Looking back through the comments I noticed this has been mentioned as a problem for a while now. I hope you can address this in your next patch or a hotfix can be made to fix it.

In the meantime I wish you all the best of luck on your development of the Night Lords. Ave Dominus Nox!

Community..

I have deleted the previous 0.7.28 release sent the other day as it had some problems.

I will be submitting a newer 0.7.29 download shortly. Please standby and sorry for the inconvenience.

Once 0.7.29 is submitted, please use that one instead.

"my laptop has recently taken to overheating and turning off without warning whenever much happens on screen. "
Your cooling system is down. If it's material, good point : it's easy to replace and quite cheap. If it's electrical : your laptop is basically ******.

My problem is the fan has died over the gfx card, but you have to remove the screen, keyboard, freaking everything to get to it and there is no guarantee it will work again.

Also, my internet sucks and I can't upload whole files to moddb at the moment. Sigh.

Tbat's the problem with laptops - if hardware fails, then it's so difficult to fix you might as well get a new one. Especially with OEM parts that are hard and costly to source.

I wouldn't agree about that. You can replace hardware on laptops too. It's longer because you basically have to open everything, but it's possible. Things like the fan are not welded, only screwed (and often the screw isn't even tight).

Well, it varies from laptop to laptop and from brand to brand. My experience has been mixed to say the least.
