This is the first public beta of The Dance Macabre: Harlequins modification for Soulstorm 1.20.

This mod has a long history, starting right back with winter assault. The mod was left abandoned and the assets public released, however it was then revived by a new team who have taken it further towards completion.

Our team is currently very small, consisting of Undirector and fuggles working on the code and with two testers. Where we can we are beg/stealing/borrowing 3d help and jONES1979 kindly helped out on more than one occasion but we lack any dedicated 3D/OE/FX support, which sadly will hold the mod back from being a completely polished. The known issues on this front are small, but sadly currently unfixable. In fact, one of the key reasons for the release of this build is that the current team feel they have pretty much taken the mod as far as they can and so please consider this both a fully playable race mod and a cry for assistance!

We were unable to get completed voice acting ready in time for our initial release date and now this has been pushed back by another 2 weeks, so rather than sitting and doing nothing, we thought we would let you play.

We hope you enjoy this modification as a lot of hard work has gone into it - Let us know what you think and then look out for version 2!

Did not seem to find the icon to build power generators. I am doing something wrong or I had too much to drink?

Hahahahah!!!
Well, there are NO Power Generators :)
But try looking into your LPs, and you will find the Alternative method Harleys use to generate power (there are two abilities in there - please read the descriptions, and you will understand the system).

Hello brother.

First, let me sat we are just a handful of coders left in my team... And the projects are HUGE and MANY...
The only way to speed up progress is to find some coding assistance. :)

So yes, Ultramarines are next, as well as new versions (hopefully the "last ones") of Dark Angels and Blood Angels.
There is also Craftworlds, which is VERY close to release as well.

I suppose Harleys are next. :)
Sorry, but this will take a while.

Note that I DO have an IMPROVED beta but there are some issues (mostly audio ones, and we lack proper texturing of three buildings). But it has improved playability and style, and some new additions, researches, abilities FXes, ext.

Will the team decide to just release the mod, despite some voices being missing? The mod has been 'ready' excluding some voices for just under a year at this point.

Its being worked on good fella! I just did a marathon 100+ character voices for the Ultramarines project which is the largest voice set ever done but those are fairly standard Astartes vox channel FX. The challenge was dealing with the variable quality of the voice actor sessions as some of them recorded way back in 2011-13 were.. ok-ish. Still... all of em turned out excellent considering the challenges I faced.

So now I need to work on other projects too. Priorities as always.. ;)

I know dammit - you are right brother helloa2134.
But the thing is, there are SO MANY mods we are working in parallel, that we kinda "neglected" our tasks here :(

That being said, ALL our mods are ALIVE and kicking, it is just a matter of shifting our focus to Harleys...
