Minor issue with the Chaos Campaign...
The Astartes force starts with 2 Battle Barges, both going right for the transports, which they destroy in one or two broadsides. There is no way to destroy them before they destroy the transports.

I will have to make a hotfix version in the next few days. Until then, I'd advice not to install the mod until after you have done the first Chaos mission and saved. Or un-install, do the first mission, and then install the mod.

The problem comes because the first missions are scripted - which we cannot change - and has certain units allocated to the factions. Since I replaced the Escort with the new Space Marine Titan that also means that it spawns two of them. And that makes it pretty impossible to beat.

yea it isnt just the chaos campaign the necron first mission you have to fight 2 titans at the start with a third coming in later, and all you got is one titan and 2 escorts

Yes, its the same oversight on my part - playtesting most of the changes on 1.6 version, but the campaign starts were wrongly tested on 1.5. Human error on my part.

It will be fixed for the hotfix and I'll most likely have that up tomorrow.

ah cool, as i found a strange bug if you do the save fix thing as in do the mission with out the mod first them play after, it says your titan is full health but when you go into a fight it is only at 24% or so the health the lc would have been at, it is like that for all fights

Its not a "bug" per say. Its how the game handles save game files and stats. It will persist until you by a new ship of the same class. Or until I get the Hotfix out. Im almost done with it.

Hi Skal, I wanted to thank you for the new version of the mod, Orcs are now a formidable force, perhaps too formidable. Also left a few suggestions for mod in your chat in Discord.gg

Do you have the vanilla game installed with the Chaos DLC?

Have you disabled the EAC?

Are you sure you have placed the folders in the .rar file in their correct place and let them overwrite the files?

The 1.6.1 version is up now. Hope this solves the problems with Chaos/Necron campaigns for people.

Recomend starting new campaigns as always. It also gives Chaos a unique ship, the "Fallen Angel", in their campaign. Which I HOPE works as it should. Its hard to know as the ship has been tested and added, but I havn't gotten to that mission in my new Chaos campaign yet.

Well I love the chaos ships so I will give it a try this weekend. Thanks for all of your hard work and I really hope this mod you made shines on your resume in the future for work man, and if this is purely for hobby then thank you all the more for your awesome work!

Just got into a game as the crons again, saw another set of ships with that messed up place holder. Also did you adjust the fleet point cost? A 510 strength chaos fight has 7 hellbringers and 5 iconoclast.... I mean I am on custom with increased fleet sizes to 150 normal, but the ai was left at 100? Heh I think the custom difficulty messes it.

The size of the AI fleet is configured separately in the options panel on the left.

This is just a hobby. I might go into the industry in the future, but I already have a full time (good) job so thats a maybe. Thanks for the kind words. I mod all my strategy games, and have since I was a kid, but this is the first mod I have published online. Might do more in the future.

If you have "placeholder" errors you need to reinstall and follow the instructions. You are missing some part, probably the "-noEAC" bit.

All the fleetpoints costs are changed, yes. There is a breakdown of that in the Readme file. Also you can change fleetsizes of both you and the enemy as ONF says, but in my mod all fleets are balanced across the board.

Ok I have the -NoEAC part in and just copied over the skalagrim mod to the directories and let it overwrite? By the omnissiah where did I go wrong here?

Trying to use the custom campaign options beyond their original parameters seems to crash the game. E.g. Trying to play with 50% Leadership.

Can't really comment on that as they work for me. Are you sure you have installed the mod correctly?

Well now I am not sure? I followed the instructions in the readme sans making a duplicate of my original files. I could work past the crash inducing placeholder thing but all the admirals I have available are using the damn thing so I cant hire new ones!

And you are running it with the -NoEAC line?

Also you should start a new campaign after installing the mod for optimal results.

none of the ships have guns on them, only torpedoes and fighters

This is an error from installing the mod wrong most likely. Go through the steps again in the readme.

And you are using the -noEAC bit? Because if you are not, it means you have to do it all again from the start.

When the game isn't loading up correct ships, lack of names, lack of weapons its because it cannot find the correct file or the file has been deleted/reinstalled by steam.

Hi, i just tried your mod and i have problems with the campaign. With the mod installed it seems like most of the ships are dying much easier/faster, dunno if its cuz weapons got stronger or because armor/shields are nerfed.
Its not a big problem usually but there are some missions that are extremely difficult because of that,. The first mission with the Tyranids for example, I had to fight it 4 times because the ancient was melting under all the firepower, and when i finally beat the mission 90% of my fleet was dead.

Could i have messed up the installation somehow? Is the high mortality rate intentional?

They are dying faster because there are more of them now shooting at each other and weapons have been buffed. Bigger ships can take more damage, but also deal more damage. If you are having trouble you can always lower the difficulty, but its more a matter of learning how to play the different factions to your advantage in the mod. You will loose ships no matter what. And thats part of the game - bigger battles. For instance, using the very cheap escort ships as a screen will soak up alot of salvoes of fire usually - for a small cost.

I guess I'll just have to try a different approach. In vanilla I always went for the biggest ships with little to no escorts...

Time to switch I guess, thanks for the reply.
Your mod is baller btw, keep it up mate :)

Oh yeah, and to be honest I play most of my fights in slow-motion. It just feels more "epic" that way somehow.

wow its really nice! by the way does this already included the submod? or do I also need to install that one ?

It already includes the greater customization submod. I let the player decide how much they want to change their parameters for their campaigns. But I don't recommend going above 200% fleet/battle sizes - personally I play my campaigns at 150% and that is enough for me (it is about 250% of vanilla sizes).

Have fun!

In campaign, when I attack to a system with three enemy fleet, then have the fatal error and crash. What's the problem? Maybe have to install your customization mod too?

Not an error because of the mod. No the customization submod is included in all versions above 1.4.

Next is a small submod that increases health on ships by 25%. Its done, but Im swamped with work because of the corona epidemic so I havn't even had time to playtest it.
