Featuring a new playable race for the game with many new units and functions. This race is based on the 40k Background and features the imperial guard troops of Armageddon called Steel Legion. The idea behind the mod is to bring in a new strategie game play where units are more specialist and more units can enter the battlefield. You can play the race on your own or face it as enemy in multiplayer games. It's quite balanced to existing races. Current Release Version is 1.5. There is an update to Version 2.0 planned featuring a second new race.

Post feature Report RSS Upcoming SS Mod Fix 01

A short description of upcoming SL for SS fix. Mostly a set of small alterations.

Posted by on

I decided to fix some SL for SS mod issues which I can not tolerate anymore.


So, what exact issues will be fixed:

- The larger structure's footprints do the placement harder, so more place needed
- Most SL units have bigger line of sight in comparison with vanilla units
- Hotkeys are duplicated or not set
- Squad's ranged_attackrange parameter not aligned with Squad's role on battlefield
- SL cannot repair structures/units until Tier 2

- Featureless Cyclops Demolition Vehicle explosion effect
- Pioneers dies too easy even in comparison with regular troopers
- Pioneer's capture rate is extremely low without a reason
- Personal mine cost high for the "one time explosion"
- The scout sentinel moves and turns too slowly to be called "scout"
- Tank Ace can be built too early


Detailed descriptions:
The list is not yet finished but here is what I already have done.

ART

- Rough Rider's Cavalery tracer's fix
Bolter's tracers swapped to laser pistol's one

- Cyclope Explosion
melta-explosion death effect added

This fix going to be distributed as SL patch or as SL ver. 1.1 re-release.

Those BT expansion will have much more balance changes/reworks, and additional maps and even game mode(s).

I think it will be cool if someone make the Predator and the land Rider bigger , so the dreadnoughts and the space marines air vehicle for the vanilla Soul Storm in order to make them more up scale to the units of the 40K Miniature game, the same for chaos and the orcs Sisters of Battle , Eldars and Dark eldars, ..something like they did in the Fok mod but for the vanilla game...Just a suggestion.
