Howdo,
Welcome to the Salamanders mod for Soulstorm, which adds a new race, the Salamanders chapter of the Space Marines to your game of Soulstorm.

To install, put the Salamanders folder and the .module file into your Soulstorm root directory, then from the title screen go to Game Manager and select the Salamanders Mod. You will also need jONES1979' Objective Points mod to enable the custom Salamanders LP, and you can get here: Moddb.com

The Salamanders are a chapter who come from the planet Nocturne, which has very high gravity and because of this the Salamanders are bigger and stronger than other marines, albeit a bit slower to react to things. Also, they have difficulty with using aerial equipment owing to the difficulties of training in such an environment. Further, owing to the radiation then they have mutated to have black skin and burning red eyes.

Followers of the Promethean Cult they believe in self dependence, so have trained in the art of manufacture and tend to field higher numbers of custom weapons, armour and as skilled blacksmiths, they have a lot of hammers. The cult values fire and so too do the Salamanders, who favour flamer and melta weaponery.

This mod is not strictly codex, what with them not having one, but is my interpretation of the chapter so I know there are fluff deviations in place.

A bit of background on this mod, if I may indulge you. This mod is my project, started by me on my own and with limited alpha testing to some of my DoW friends and buddies. I had to learn how to do a hell of a lot of new stuff and all the new textures, 2d Art and AE code is mine and the Salamander AI is heavily mine and at one point I was even audio editing! Basically, it started and ends with me. That said, the aforementioned DoW friends have been great with new LP's and unit donations to really make this mod something special. In terms of content completion, this is pretty much 100% done, all that is really outstanding are the custom voices which Thud is working on and then my friends, we are gold.

The Salamanders have arrived in Soulstorm! The Salamanders are a chapter of Space Marines devoted to giant lizards, hammers and fire. Coming from a high gravity, high radiation homeworld they do not have much in the way of air support, but their marines are bigger than the other chapters and have black skin and red eyes, alongside a librarian dedicated to the Promethean Cult and is just as likely to set himself on fire as the enemy!

Dear jONES1979,

Hi! I really like this mod you made. The choices you made are perfect characterizations of the Salamanders.

I've been looking into a possible Death Guard mod for Soulstorm, and after extensive play of you mod, I determined it would be an excellent base for one. I have started to work around with the units and models, and have had some trouble in over-writing some of the textures. Specifically, I changed the "Fire Drakes" terminators into Deathshroud terminators using the Chaos Nurgle Lord's model from Ultimate Apocalypse. In-game, the model is completely pink, but animates perfectly well. I wanted to inquire about which file under Data/art/ebps/races/salamanders/texture_share is the texture file for the Fire Drakes. That way, I could make the Deathshroud actually look like Deathshroud.

Thanks,
liberatorsc1

This is a late reply, I know, but are following a "specific" cue, on "dealing with" the race mods - and salamanders are not at the focus of our attention at the point, brother Liberatorsc1...

However THERE IS a Death Guard mod for Soulstorm in develpoment, but again it is not at the centre of our attentions.

We need more coders, to take over some race mods, in order to progress them faster. Hell, there are MORE THAN 30 !!!

Anyone interested, just PM me.

Still wondering if this mod is ever going to get an update, even if it's just a tiny one. A multi-melta razorback and flaming melee weapons are the only crucial things that are still missing. Adding in a famous character from the lore is optional, but very much appreciated.

I just wanted to say that this is an amazing mod and wanted to thank the creator for bringing the world an incredible experience in getting the chance to play as the flame-bearing warriors of Nocturne. ^_^

Also, if your still thinking about new ideas for the mod, I think some good ideas might be giving them flaming melee weapons like swords and other tools. They do this in the lore and it fits their theme very well as both masters of flame and blacksmiths.

Other elements that could be neat to include the drakescale cloaks a lot of their commanders and veterans possess.

And the Salamander Pyroclasts, warriors carrying specially-designed super flamers.

Edit: I just noticed that the Force Commander has a drakescale cloak. Nice!
